Back to painting...

Perphaps it is the thought of the coming autumn weather but, lately I have found myself with a yearning to paint again. I had some success selling paintings Idid a year ago on Ebay and it started the forgotten Ebay fever all over again. What is it about that process? I find myself checking my auctions every hour practically. Then I remembered my love of painting folk art. I always find myself feeling bad when an idea I had doesn't pan out. I am constantly getting new ideas starting them out and then coming to a stalemate. Something blocked it, being the resources, expense, or marketing. Now, I am beginning to realize it is just timing. It wasn't the right time but, if I hold on to it for long enough I can find a use for it. I see that happen all the time in my work. Everything old is new again.

The dream has come!!!

Last night I slept the whole night in my own bed in my own bedroom no less.
the whole remodeling process is not done yet but, it is completed enough that we could sleep in it. This was the first night I have slept in my own bed since Easter. Yah! Of course, I couldn't sleep well with all the new noises but, I was able to get up at 5:30 to work on my blog.
How does everyone like my new logo? I love it. I am just not sold on the color. Let me know what you think. email me at atmylittlecorner@aol.com with your comments!
