what i've been up to

"The Pear Tree"
50 cm or 19 3/4"
mixed media on canvas
(to see detailed shots, go to the etsy listing)

After a grueling hour of spinning, I thought I would come home and relax but, work calls and the almost 4 foot commissioned piece I've got to finish isn't going to get done by itself. This thing takes a lot of my floor space, so between drying, I have worked on a few other pieces. I thought I would list one on ebay for those that like the thrill of the game, and one on etsy for those that don't like to wait.

"I Laughed Out Loud"
on ebay

"It's A Wonder"
on etsy
And while I have spent an hour trying to download images just to post this, thought I would end this post with some pictures from the beach this weekend. We have had such a fantastic summer this year so many of our weekends have been spent on the beach. The boys (the extra one is the boys' cousin) have been catching crabs and Noah has been enjoying the sand. I don't want summer to ever end!

Oh Erika, look at your cuties (and the boys, too). No! Just kidding--the boys are the cuties. And how quickly they've grown. It goes fast, doesn't it?

Wonderful art, adorable family. Good for you, girl.

I so want "it's a wonder" if I find out I'm having a girl- because of the boy and girl photo. I hope it's still available once I find out!
