Sneaky plans and clever tricks...

I've been painting with acrylics since Christmas.  Have gifted six paintings to friends, and friends of friends.  I wandered into the local children's bookstore with Aidan one day....just so happened to have the Owl and Pussycat with me, and asked if they would be interested in selling them.

The first thing the owner asked was if I had a card.

Added that to the to-do list.

I took his card and gave him my e-mail address.  Thanked him.  Left.  Didn't really think I'd hear back.

One week later owner of said store e-mailed to say they would love to sell them.  The nursery-rhyme-inspired ones.

Not a rejection. 


To-do list just got bigger.

Lovin' that music

Last month we worked at a booth at the mall to raise awareness about our local Down syndrome society.  There was live music, and Aidan grooved out:

My only regret is that I talked during it...oh well.

Off the easel and pass the baby

I've been working on a painting for my friend's baby....see the cutie I got to cuddle?


 That's Reese.  The family in the yellow submarine is Reese's family:

Hot off the easel...yellow submarine again

Reese is one lucky baby to have such wonderful big sisters and amazing parents to boot.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable project...but now my easel is empty...
