Purple Haze

Oil on MDF Board

This is the last of the daisy series, well, for now anyways. The title, well, my brain has been in a haze the last few days. Not the kind sung about in Jimmy's famous song however, no baby brain haze! I am 35 weeks this week and am getting very tired and anxious about everything. I am loving the moments I can sit and paint. This is about the only thing that calms me.

Oil on MDF Board

It looks as though the daisy's attention is being held by something off to the right, it is not focused on looking forward. This is kind of how my days have been lately, between basement renovations, trying to get ready for baby and keeping my three year old occupied, I find myself getting distracted easily. It will all come together eventually. Till then, I will just keep painting!!

Cool Dip

Oil on MDF Board

My son picked these little daisies for me on one of the walks he went on. I love little gifts like this from my little boy. This is what this summer is all about, the little things!

The one off the plate may be the lucky one who got away, his buddies are witness to his escape though. Will they give him up?

I have been receiving fresh garden veggies from people this season, what a treat. We don't even shell these, we eat them whole, shell and all. Run you peas, run while you can!

The Show

The show is up in the Multicultural Center Dining Room. My little paintings look great in that little space!

I am happy to say that my camera is working again, it just needed to dry out. It also took quite a nasty drop today. It needed a bit of TLC but then started working again. Im telling you, it takes a lickin and keeps on tickin!

And just to let you know I am now 30 weeks along and things are going really well.

No painting this time around and not to sure how long it will be before I post again.
We had, using the headlines from the news, "hurricane like weather" hit us yesterday, and sitting in the middle of it was my camera that I left outside after photographing my last piece. Yah, really good one Deltra. Oh well the up side is we will most likely upgrade to a digital SLR. This camera that we had was a good little camera though, Sony Cyber Shot 4.1 meaga pixels. It served its purpose. The new one will be nice for when the baby comes though. So till next time, which hopefully won't be to long...

is the minds paint paintbrush.
It can color any situation.
