too busy ....

I almost didn't write a blogpost today. Not much to show and it's already time for bed. To think that last week I thought my painting would be finished today .... Hmm, that was rather a case of wishful thinking. I did work on my painting, but then I wanted to go into another direction with it and changed some things, and in the end, you wouldn't really notice much difference from what I showed last week. So, I'll just keep working on it and I'll show it when it's ready :-)

I did finish my map face(s)! Here it is:

And that's it for this week! After last week's market I decided to quit doing markets. It's just not worth the time and effort. I found a shop that's willing to sell my market-items (boxes and rocks mostly). and I've been busy this week with getting everything sorted out, making inventories, pricing everything etc... This weekend I will bring everything to the shop, and then I will start concentrating on painting and mosaics. Looking forward to that!

I do have some funnies for you :-)

A beautiful one for earth day (I don't know the artist, just saw it on Facebook...)

And the ones to think about:

Thanks for your visit! I'm linking to Paint Party Friday, as usual. Have a happy day, and a beautiful relaxing weekend. See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥

Working on my painting

No map face today! I have a market this weekend and I have been busy with that. Plus the doodle from last week gave me fresh inspiration for my painting, and I couldn't wait to try it out. While I'm still contemplating some parts of the painting, I decided to finish the faces today. Here are some progress pics:

 I also started another doodle :-)

I hope I'll be able to finish my painting next week. Can't wait to work on it again, but this weekend I will be too busy....

I also have a mapface more or less finished, but I didn't write the text yet, and it's getting too late and I need to go to bed. I'll show it to you next week!

Many thanks for visiting me here! If you want to see more, go visit Paint Party Friday. Lots of art on display there!

I'll finish with some funnies :-)

And the ones to think about ....

That's it for this week! Have fun today and enjoy your weekend! I'll be back next week! 
Take care ♥ ♥ ♥

doodling again

Well, after spending an entire afternoon painting on my large canvas, deciding that I hated it and removing all I had done, I decided to leave it alone for now. It's sitting on its easel next to my desk, and I look at it every time I'm doing something there, so I'm sure one of these days I'll know how to continue. Sometimes you just have to be patient ....

Meanwhile, I started doodling again. I don't even remember when the last time was that I did that. I used to doodle while I was waiting for my daughter to finish her gymnastics-training, and when I was sitting on my daughter's bed at night. But we don't do that anymore, somehow we've grown out of it, and now it seems as if I never doodle anymore.

Until now, that is :-) Here's my first doodle of 2017!

This week has been rather depressing considering all that's happening in the world. It feels as if war is coming closer every day and I'm getting so fed up with the moronic leaders of some countries. They're like children fighting, which would be okay (well, maybe not ....) if only they didn't have grown-up toys.  I can't believe how many of these assholes are now in leading positions in the world. How has it ever come this far? I wish they would just drop dead, the lot of them. The world would surely be a safer place then. So my map face this week is influenced by this:

But I've got good news too! Last Friday I received 2 adorable ATC's from Sal Scheibe. They're gorgeous, with bright colours just the way I like them. Sal is so talented, I'm always in awe when I visit her blog and see her work. Look at them!

Thanks so much Sal!

I need funnies more than anything right now. So here are some:

And of course some wise ones too ...

That's it for this week! Thanks so much for being here! Enjoy your day, and I wish you a weekend full of fun, love, kindness and without worries. See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥
