Hi there. I know I've been missing (warning: long post). Busy, busy, busy, then at night I'm too darn tired to post! Lots of catching up to do. Today I want to share ONE of MANY paintings that I've finished this past month, but first a little update on some of the happenings around the Orloff household...
1. A couple of you asked how my foot is doing. It's really good now. Finally! For those of you who don't know, I hurt my foot bad back at the end of October. I didn't break it but had some major tissue damage and had to stay off of it, and was on crutches for a LONG 7 1/2 weeks!! I was finally told I could walk the week of Christmas and haven't slowed down since then! I missed painting so bad that it's hard to keep me out of the studio now! Dinner? What dinner? Give me paint!!
2. While I was stuck elevating my foot on the couch I noticed how grungy our den walls were. Yuck. So now the walls are painted a pretty grey-green, and the ceiling is now light grey. Ahh.. much better! But with the painting of the walls and the ceiling came a big mess. Our den is THE room that we are in most of the day. It's the playroom, TV room, office, etc... so when it was a mess for the last few weeks... so was I...but it's all good now.
I just had to share my husbands fancy light stand that he used while painting. Yup, that's a clamp light on a drill gun. Cracks me up!!
3. My baby boy turned three last week! Wow, time moves fast! Warp speed lately (except when I'm waiting for my next Netflix movie to come), so we had a tiny little birthday party for him today.
4. I was submitting some art pieces for a Petit Valentine art show that's coming up next weekend and the art had to be in by Tuesday, so I was painting like a mad woman! I got six pieces finished and turned in!! Yahoo! I'll share them with you this week along with details of the show, but for now, here's a photo of my workspace when I was in the middle of working on them.
OK, there's more but I'm done sharing for now, and this post is long enough! So now here's the rest of the photos of a new finished texture painting.
The color of the gingko leaves was a bit of a happy accident. I meant for the color to be deeper and more copper but they ended up more of a peach color. I liked it so I only added accents with copper. I really like how it turned out. Ok, see you soon. Bye now.
