dreaming of flowers


It’s that time of year.

When everything is brown outside (or white, depending on your weather), I start dreaming of all the flowers I’ll be seeing in a few months!!

I’ve been busy this week. Lots of doodling mostly. Just not a lot of scanning and/or photographing my work! It’s on my To Do list for the weekend.

Someone asked me a while back how I can work full-time and still have time to make art. Well, here are a few reasons:
  • I have a wonderful husband who does his share around the house. He cooks 3 nights a week, I cook 3 nights a week and we go out on Saturdays. So that gives me back a lot of time not spent in the kitchen.
  • I work at home so I don’t have a long commute. It takes less than 10 seconds to get from work to home. If I run, probably 2 seconds. But I don’t run in the house much!
  • I don’t have any kids at home. My daughter is 30 now, so it’s been a while since I’ve had to carpool, do homework, extra laundry, etc. Just the cats and the dog. But they don’t need a lot of one on one attention. Some. Just not a lot.

Happy Paint Party Friday!

  7. Me, too. I am looking forward to Spring and prettier days and longer days, in regards to sunlight! Can't wait for daylight savings! Speaking of pretty, your dream flower is very pretty. Red is one of my favorite colors.
    Carla's class starts shortly, (yikes)...I am looking forward to it...hoping I can improve - while I create! Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. You forgot to mention you MAKE time for art!! Beautiful art I might add!! So many people even when they have time sabotage it with other things!! Sometimes you even have to shut out the world to get things done!! That's not a bad thing either!! Great post!!

  14. Your flower is bursting with life. It's great that your husband pitches in. My husband is something of a saint but he does sometimes complain if I leave paint splotched all over the kitchen. I am not very good at clearing up. Happy PPF
