Work from today

Here's one of the paintings I worked on today. I have quite a bit to do on it yet. It is a scene from downtown Greenville from a photo.
Ahhhh, I spent the whole day painting. It was wonderful. First, I did another mango painting. I didn't post it because I can't get a decent photo of it. Then i spent the rest of the day on this street scene. I hope to finish it tomorrow.

Starting tomorrow, I'm a working artist

Once again, I come with excuses of why I have neglected my blog. Things have been crazy around here, ever since moving here, I have had alot to take care of. We brought my mom with us when we moved, to live with us for the winter, so she could escape the brutal Nebraska winter. Right away she started a new chemo regiment. Every week there were numerous appts with various drs. At the same time, Corrie, my oldest daughter, was on bedrest, which meant she needed help with picking the boys up from schools, etc.
But now, my mom is back in Nebraska and Corrie gave birth to a beautful baby girl on April 2nd. Macy Lane is healthy and doing great. We're so happy to have her with us. She came 3 1/2 weeks early, which was such a blessing, because she already weighed 7lbs 8 ozs.
I was in Cincinnati with Dave, where he was working at a conference. I came back today, four days early, so I could officially start working as a full time artist, tomorrow. I am excited. I'll be posting regularly now.
