i just completed the pram painting (such a lovely british word for carriage)...yay!!! since i have an opening on october 1st....nothing like the last minute, aye?? i have worked my bum off night and day trying to get my other painting, "the waiting room" complete as well, but alas, there's just too much detail. what a surprise. i am really enjoying this one and simply can't rush it! plus, my boys got a bit tired of eating, playing and napping in mommy's studio....they are so amazing though. my oldest cheered me on as i worked...."mommy, it really looks great...i think it's your best one...." while my little one would point to the girls on the chairs and say, "mommy!" the wee one in my belly just kicked and hiccuped.
here's how it looked at the beginning of the weekend:
and at the end....
please humor me and say, "wow! you did so much!" for to me, i can hardly believe this was a whole weekend's work!!! ugh. i have so much to do!!! i am hoping the gallery owner will be cool if i take a week or so and bring it in then....so....i'm taking the night off to camp in the tent with nate and watch "monster house".....he even brought in our snacks and told me he made special room for my big belly....i'm so lucky.
be back soon!!!! xo lisa
