what have i been up to?
the usual for me.
and opening packages.
the nice thing about selling one's artwork...
is the vacuum it creates
allowing new art to fill the void.
|9 x 12 acrylics on paper|
|'i will not be afraid"|
20 x 10 acrylics and collage on wrapped canvas
there is some money to spend
on paints & brushes
and a magical necklace from an artist friend.
|crystal dreams amulet by Mermaiden Creations|
which looks so priti with my new cashmere sweater
($4) from the charity shop.
books for 50¢
these are the 2 i've red this week...both worth a read.
and then there are times when a book becomes a movie.
and often, the result is disappointing.
but in this case, the hbo mini-series was super entertaining, not better,
not worse than the movie...just different experiences
between reading and watching. my favorite actress is frances mcdormand...
also this week the postman brought me 2 packages that
came as a complete surprise!
one from my dear friend and confidant gemma
|a vintage artist's box|
and a painting from the artist herself!
the other from my ever-thoughtful sister
|the most sumptuous bag in navy blue filled with treasures|
and a book by jacqueline bouvier and her sister,
(i had no idea such a volume existed)
you may think me spoiled.
and you would be right, i am.
but i deserve it.
here is a drawing of mine from 1998
|crayon and marker on newsprint|
what a difference 16 years makes.
♥love to all♥
PS: here is the preview to olive kitteridge,
i hope you can find a way to see the film!
