I have three pieces in progress right now... I've been working like a busy little bee:)
I thought I'd show you my design sketch for my next piece. I'm donating the proceeds from this one to Red Ink Studios in Flint. The photos a little washed out but hey that's why I'm not a photographer.
I put the final base coat on all three tonight so it won't be long. Yay!
This is my favorite part of the process- the end when it's finally time to paint the design and it all comes together. Before I had E I would get so caught up in finishing a piece that I would do nothing else until it was done (read no cleaning, sleeping, ect.) But one of the surprise blessings of motherhood is forced moderation. Nothing and I mean Nothing can become all consuming any more. Which is good because it's been my experience that breaks and moderation make everything better. A little Dr. Seuss and Olivia don't hurt either :)
On that note I'll leave you with a Dr. Seuss quote from the One Fish Two Fish book, our current favorite. :
"And now good night. It is time to sleep... Today is gone. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one. Every day, from here to there, funny things are everywhere."
