Drying Time

This weekend, I finished up some paintings! Although I like to use gouache, watercolor and oil, my favorite paints to work with are aqua oils which, like all oil paints, take some time to dry. I've been working on these little 4" squares recently which make it easy to switch between paintings so I don't waste paint. These paintings should be dry in a couple of days so I can varnish them and put them in my etsy shop. Hooray!

The Adventures of Hazel (A Picture Story) Part 10

Hazel wasn’t the only one running from the storm. All sorts of Dreamland critters joined in her flight. The longer they ran, the larger their numbers became.

Stuff and Things and Stuff

Wow. I haven't posted in, well, a while. Although I do not have a photograph today, I thought I'd just say what's been going on over here in the superhouse lab.

***What I've been Doing***

  1. Refinishing vintage pieces for my etsy shop
  2. Making sure the bills are paid
  3. Creating new stuff for my etsy shop (including some new paintings)
  4. Reworking the next scene in The Adventures of Hazel
  5. Making The Candy Room
  6. Saving up for some much needed materials.
  7. Eating really healthy food and snacks :)
  8. Watching old episodes of a show called "Walking with Dinosaurs"
  9. Giving the superhouse lab a makeover

I work best when I have lots of different things to do.
PRO: when I start finishing things, I have a lot of newly completed projects
CON: it takes a hot minute to finish.

A few days ago, still not happy with the next scene in The Adventures of Hazel, I decided to step away from it and concentrate on The Candy Room. I'm building the room from scratch so it's a bit of a project, especially since I've never created something like this. I made some major changes in the appearance of the next scene so I'm looking forward to rephotographing it tonight.

*A New Experiment* If I have something to post, I'm going to just go for it instead of worrying and then not posting anything at all.
