What Happened to September....I can't believe it is almost over. I feel like I missed it completely.

The weather here is gorgeous!

I'm getting back into routine. Wash is caught up, chores and errands caught up. Now I feel like I'm home again.

4 of the 7 pictures that I sold at the flea market were of Ocean Waves, now I'm all out of ocean pictures. In my opinion they are the easiest and most fun pictures to paint so I decide to do some more Ocean Wave pictures. I started two last night. Both are 11 x 14inches. I have to wait for the rocks to dry before continuing. So I guess I'll start another picture while I'm waiting. All I have left in my canvas supply is a large one 18x20inches (46x51cm) and a small 8x10inches (20x25cm). I'm trying to decided if I want to do flowers or more oceans scenes or something else and on which canvas. I have too many ideas in my head and having trouble picking one.

Hope everyone has a great day and please share it.

How about a flower vase in a window with the ocean in the background? :biggrin:

We are suffering from "hitch itch". A malady that strikes RV'ers when it's time to hit the road. We have the car packed and some other preparations done but still much to do. Many of our co-worker friends have left already but we don't need to be out until October 15, so no hurry, my husband and I learned not to rush things a long time ago.

The weather finally broke last night. Yay! It has been muggy 80s all week, today will be a beautiful 76!:vs_box::wings::clap:

BOOM, Susan got it! >.<

Not a good day for me, I got a cold yesterday D: That means... no training, hurt in my knees and hands... getting dizzy... I guess I have fever (Ehmm, when your body temperature goes higher than normal values, don't know how you call it) ... I hate colds -.-

We call it a fever also FanKi. Sorry to here you are not feeling well, and hope you get well soon.

Susan some of the people (2 couples) at the retreat I went to live in an RV 6 months out of the year. They had some interesting stories as I'm sure you do also.

Your suggestion for my next painting is interesting but I'm having trouble putting together a composition from all those factors in my mind. I decided to do something I never tried before, a ship at sea. I ran to Walmart and bought a 20x24inch (51 x 61 cm) to put it on. It's the largest canvas I have ever worked on so this whole thing is different than I've done before. I got the canvas at Walmart instead of Hobby Lobby because they are less expensive. Only cost $9. I have been looking at pictures of old sailing ships and hope I can pull it off. This may turn out awful, but I'm feeling gutsy right now.

I'll open a WIP when I have something to show.

Hi all. I don't know when I last posted actually..The weekend was busy..soccer game then I did a lot of stuff around the house..didn't sit down or rest much. My son got sick and is still sick so husband and I alternating our days so I work half a day and stay with him half a day and he works half a day and takes over when I go to work. Hopefully he will get better soon. Needless to say..I haven't gotten to my drawing yet.

Weather is nice here - days are in the 70s/low 80s..nights are now in the 30s.

Thank you Luna. You have no idea how I appreciate encouragement. I'm the ultimate insecure (in my skill) artist.
