In the studio this week, I am busy getting ready for Thanksgiving an working on some commissions. I hope to get these commissions out by Christmas so the heat is on. If you are interested in a commission for Christmas this will be the last week to get them in. Some exceptions can be made if possible but, no guarantees.

We have a lot to be thankful for her at My Little Corner Design. It has been a lucrative year for us and we are very thankful for being able to make a living doing what we love. Thank you all!!!

What kind of people????

This is a piece that I am working on to place for sale at my website. I am not selling it cheap on EBay so, I can afford to take a little more time to add lots and lots of detail. This is what I love, the detail. However, I am having a hard time figuring out what kind of people I want to include and what they would be doing. I have a black lab, some swans, and a horse drinking from the lake already. What else should I include? Let me know if you have any ideas.

In the studio

Isn't this a great time of year?  This weekend we are looking forward to light up night in a nearby town.   Excitement is in the air! I haven't even started shopping or thinking about it.  So here I sit painting  the day away. What could be better?

These paintings listed above are two paintings that will be listed in separate auctions.   Probably, this Sunday. I am not sure. I may list them tonight.  I will be painting two more paintings this week to place on my website. I can't decide if I should go with a winter scene or a spring/summer. Let me know what you think.

In the air on Tuesday

Today, it is back to the studio for a walk down memory lane. I painted a similar piece a couple of months back and decided to do something different from the winter scenes I have been doing lately. I feel like I am snowed in, for all the winter paintings I have done already. Don't get me wrong, I still am in "deep" with my winter scenes. I just wanted to do something different. A little break from the storm so to speak.

I just wanted to post this...

I just love this little painting. It only measures 11x14 so I kept it simple.  We spent a lot of the day cleaning in the studio today and then after a simple dinner of chicken, cheese and broccoli, we celebrated with a lively game of paper airplane races. At which, I lost miserably. Alas, tomorrow is another day and  another craft fair, yippee!   This painting will list Sunday 7PM Est. and will run for seven day. Find it on EBay under my ID "Mylittlecornerdesign"

When will the snow come????

It is rather quiet here for a weekday.  The kids are off school so, the quiet always worries me. They must be up to something..... I suppose I should just stay up here where it is safe and happy. Painting silly snow men. It is coming you know, the snow.  
This painting will be done Thursday and posted on EBay Sunday. Check it out with my ID "My Little Corner Design"

In the studio....

I am so happy to be back in the studio. I have been working a lot on design work and have missed my paint brushes. I have to admit that I talk to them, like Rachel Ray talks to her food as she is cooking it. Funny but, true. I have my favorites and they know who they are.

This week I am working on a lot of winter scenes.  Some sled riding, snow man making, and an snow angel playing are in order.  These paintings are the most fun to paint. I especially love the frolicking!

The painting above is no done yet but, there is enough done for you to get the idea. I am going to add more birds to fill the it out.  The finished piece will be up for auction on Ebay on Thursday.  Look for it under my id "mylittlecornerdesign."

...and I am a moron!!!!

No offense to the Mormon religion. I enjoy the commercials  really, especially the one with the artist mother. No, I only mean to be self deprecating.   I am such an idiot!

Today, after finishing this cute little painting, I decided to take a photo of it to share with everyone.  I set the painting on the floor in my living room and opened the drapes to let the natural light flow in. As I was bending over to take the shot, I actually dropped my camera on the painting!!!! I would not have thought it would have done much damage but, it actually tore the canvas! If you look close at the picture on the left right by the pine tree you can see the tear. Also, there is a little indentation to the left that will go away eventually.

 What is wrong with my brain? or my central nervous system?!!!  God only knows! I can at least patch up the canvas and keep it for myself.  Now, I will have to repaint the painting this weekend. There goes my friday night!!!!
