Totally Wiped here.....!

Worked all day getting my natural beauty products ready, packaged, labled and took photos of my paintings , transferred them to CD and submitted them to the art gallery for jurying for the summer show. Still have to make some products and have more packaging and labelling to do and print off brochures. I had some done but someone took a bunch to distribute. Nice lady! Here is the other painting that I submitted for jurying for the summer show. I finished it last year but never showed it. Good to have an emergency back-up painting! :)

Finished the Painting with Two Days to Spare!

Whew! finished this one and it has to be submitted for the summer show by Friday, April 28. I wanted to paint two new paintings but time ran out so I will submitt a painting I had done previously but have never shown. Now I can concentrate on my natural beauty products. It turns out that I will be in a Trade Fair on Sat. April 29 and doing an instore demo of my products on Saturday May 6. No painting until all this is done. I have to make up the products. My brochures are designed and some are printed off. My business cards are for my art and one for my natural beauty products. Might as well bring my art business cards there too. :) Anyway here is the finished painting (I think!) :)

Natural Beauty Product Mode.....

Well I had a meeting with the lady about demo-ing my natural beauty products in her store early in May and it knocked me out of painting mode and into natural beauty products mode. I was ready anyway..sick of painting! :( LOL. She also wants me to go into a trade show at the end of this month. Not sure if I will do that one but I will do the demo in May. Thinking about the other one. So I have been starting to get ready, making what I can now. I don't want to start making things too early because I like the products to be fresh. I am straining beeswax and making milk baths and Spa Detox soaks. Had a good day. I didn't paint today but I have a wip from a few days ago that I started. Have to finish this by the end of the month too! (Busy month!)

Finished I Think!

Well I really wasn't happy with how the painting was going so I changed it. Kind of scary because it got really ugly. I like how it ended up...I think! I will have to leave it for a while before I am sure. I will start on the other painting now. Here is the finished one...I think...

Ramblings and WIP Update !

Okay so I told the lady with the wonderful store I would do the demo in her store. Hope all goes well. We are meeting later this week to discuss things. She seems to be really nice. I worked on one of my paintings and it is almost done. Have to finish the water and a few touchups on the sky! Then have to finish the other one!

Sold Two have to Paint Replacements!

Well I HAD my two paintings done for the summer show at the art gallery but somebody bought them! So now I am panicing and having to paint replacements. I started two of them today. Also, a lady wants me to demonstrate my Natural Beauty Products in her store. It is an exclusive store, meaning if you sell your products in her store, you can't sell them anywhere else in this town. I don't mind putting them in her store but I don't want to do the demonstration. I am shy until I know it will be hard. I may change my mind. If so I have to do it in April and paint my paintings at the same time. Can I do it? Should I do it? We shall see what transpires. Anyway here are the 2 WIP's. 12" x 24" 1 1/2" deep gallery wrap canvas. (First time I painted on this kind of canvas too! Lots of things going on here!)
