Well, November is here already and I'll have to accept it. No use in getting all stressed out because time is flying so fast. I'm gonna take each day as it comes, and try to be all zen about it ... Who knows, it might work .... ;-)
I'm off to a good start with AEDM. I finished my mosiac! Just need to get a hanging system in place and it's ready to go to the gallery.
I've been making and painting the base for 3 more!
Last Friday I delivered the commission-painting to the lady that ordered it. I was very nervous, because, no matter how you try, you cannot get into someone's head to see the picture they have in there of what they want. It's always a guess, and I'd hate to let them pay for something they don't really want. But she loved it. It was a painting for her daughter, who lost her best friend unexpectedley half a year ago. It struck a chord with me, because I lost my sister so unexpectedly also half a year ago. It was a pleasure making the painting, despite the nerves. Here it is:
And lastly, last week I mentioned I didn't make any art at all during my family-visit to Belgium. But this week I was looking through my photographs and I realized I DID make something.
My eldest sister organized a big family-reunion while we were there, and I wanted to bring her a present. So I bought a nice plant and went in search of a pretty pot to put it in. A few hours before the party, so not much time. And all I could find was a black (!) pot ... Not my favorite colour at all!
But I had brought some paint markers with me (for all the art I was going to make ... ☺) so a light bulb went off in my head and I decided to make a doodle-pot out of it :-)
Let's just say that after a few hours I could hardly use my hand, but I finished the pot! Didn't get any good photos of it, this is the best one I have:
She loved it. Thought I had bought the pot like this ... Despite the hurry I enjoyed doing it and might make some for myself in the future. Or for others..... It really does make a unique gift.
Well, that's it for today. I'm linking this as always to Paint Party Friday, and also to Art Every Day Month. Can't believe I'll have to write on my blog again tomorrow .... Better start preparing some things then .... ;-)
Thank you so much for your visit and your lovely comments. So good to be back in the blogging world! Hope you'll enjoy your day, and will have a bright and joyful weekend! ♥ ♥ ♥
