The Rooster Painting

I'm going to say something I've said before....

Ready?
I've been really busy lately.

Custom orders, cleaning house, cleaning more house, feeding hungry kids and husband, and a little bit of my own stuff.

= Busy

That has nothing to do with this post though.
Except to say that I am literally BURSTING with ideas of signs and art to paint.
Bursting.

I just ordered a weeks worth of 36 hour days. I'm not sure when they will get here though.

Until then, here's the newest addition to my collection. As much as I love this one and as much as I would love to keep it... it will be sold. I have to remind myself that it don't make no money hanging on my wall.

At night then I dream of chippy paint, roosters, cows and horses.


During the day those dreams sometimes materialize into something like this.

To tell you the truth, painting on canvas scares me. I have such high respect for the canvas and I am afraid that I will ruin it. This is the first time I have felt like I honored the canvas at all.

Call me crazy.

Lots of people do.

I understand completely about the canvas thing. I will put a project off because I know I won't do a good enough job (for myself). I have a project right now that is going slowly... a little here, then a little there. If those 36 hour days come in, it will just mean that you will be busier!

Beautiful work! You're way too hard on yourself. Nicely done. : )

Thanks for the welcome to TX!!
Other than the heat, I do love it here and love being close to family. I am so bummed that I'm not going to be able to go to Antique Alley in September. I got so exited about it when I read about it on you blog, but I'm having a party at my house that weekend, and I know I will be to overwhelmed to take that kind of time off to skip over there. April, for sure!
