Putting Paint to Canvas ~

Good Evening Folks!
this will probably be my last post until after I get back home from Ohio~
so I thought I'd post tonight....
I've been painting, as I'm sure you've noticed~ and am really enjoying it...
I have so many ideas for more Folk Art!
this is
"Nantucket Christmas"
it's 11" x 14", and painted in acrylics...
it will be available, along with many more folk paintings, at our upcoming shows...
I know I tend to flit from medium to medium,
and I surely hope you don't get boggled or bored with me doing so~
but if I didn't change things often, I would get terribly burned out,
and we don't want that to happen, do we?
I will be releasing the three new
designs for cross stitch
next week when I get home...most likely on the 8th~
and I'd like to share that I think these are my best designs yet!
and thanks to my wonderful stitcher for bringing them to life for me in record time~

Well, I'm off to make supper, then start packing...
Felicia has been packed & ready for 2 days,
and Robin has no idea what she's in for!!

Remember, if you want to meet up with us to say HI,
meet us in the front of the show
(indoors) about 11:00 am...
we'll be the ones with all of the packages!!
neener neener neeeee-ner!!
Blessings from the Farm,

I think it is wonderful that you "flit from medium to medium" - not at all boring - exciting in fact. Never know what you are going to be up to! : )

I love this painting! I think you should make prints of it so that I can hang one proudly in my home!

Have a great time and I'm really looking forward to your new cross stitch designs. Yours are always a favorite of mine.

PS - Hope you enjoy Ohio - my home state, Athens, in particular! Will be chilly - so be prepared. : )

AND since I'll be with you that might make 2 of us that don't know what they're in for,Robin and me!!!!
But then you all don't know how bad I snore,so I've been told!!!!!

Sherry said...

I can't wait to see your new designs. I love Nantucket Christmas and hope you will think of designing a cross stitch pattern from it!

Hi Lisa...well I have actually met you and didn't even know it until today!

I just got a comment on my blog from Robin - she said she was with you and you both were in line in front of us.

We were with Grace and Sandy...small world isn't it.
