The garden at “Lynnwood” continues to come along, little green leaf by little green leaf, and I continue to take fashion photos from The Fashion Stump. 😉 I just I wish I had more time to play outside. I am usually focused on work, it seems, and there is little time left for play. A feeling of being unbalanced lately has made me look at priorities. I hope to make more time for the garden.
Jason and I refer to his wooded yard as “Lynnwood” (no shock there!) as we turn it into a maze of magical walkways and gardens through the pines.
I have been busy putting items in my Etsy shop! Original paintings are going in. Hats and clothes and what-nots are going in. Altered couture. This and that. There will be more and more items as I get everything from Sidetracked transitioned to a new home. I am really looking forward to this. There is a delightful workshop space being created. It will house all of the beautiful things from Sidetracked. I cannot wait to be able to share photos!
I love working with acrylic paints! I love discovering what one tiny brush stroke of white can add to a painting. I am currently working on a painting, experimenting more with colors, sometimes using a very narrow palette and recently experimenting with bright colors. This painting is not finished but I am liking the way Mr. Guitar Man is turning out. I have never had any art lessons, and I definitely consider myself an amateur painter, but I am just in love with the process of trying to put depth and light and shadow on a flat surface. I will share this painting again when it is finished.
