here are 3 of my newer paintings.......i am really painting a lot, lately. i sold the last painting (the one of the mountain scene) to a girl from New York. i was so excited!! i have sold so many pieces of my little fairy furniture over the past 20 years and that is always thrilling to me, too, but since i am relatively new at painting, i am so humbled by someone appreciating my paintings enough to actually buy one. i've really sold a lot of paintings over the summer. it's such a surprise! we've been doing the Farmer's Market here and we've just had such a great experience!!
i have been thinking a lot about my blog lately.....wondering how i can make it better, be motivated to post things more often, make my blog more interesting so more people will visit and enjoy it......i wish i had more of theme that i could focus on. we recently went to see the film Julie and Julia......mike and i just loved it. such a great film. but what i liked about it most of all was that Julie, a woman who really appreciated Julia Child......decided to write totally about the cooking of Julia Child. she decided to cook one of her recipies from her cook book for an entire year, or until she had prepared every recipe. i just thought it was so great that she had a goal or a real project she was working on with her blog.....so that gave her a reason to post every day!! i guess i mostly want to post about something special that will interest readers enough that they will want to visit my blog every day. i love the friendships and the appreciation and the closeness i feel to people with my blog, but i just don't hear from enough people. i need to make my blog more unique and significant. anyway......i have some ideas, but still mulling them around.
i love so many blogs. i spend at least an hour or more a day visiting all the blogs i just love. i am so thankful for all of them, the beauty each person shares and their innovative, creative and amazing ideas......i don't know what i'd do if i couldn't visit these incredible beautiful worlds!!
thank you all of you!
more later. hope to hear from someone. i appreciate anyone who visits and especially who comments. i spend so much time by myself at our gallery or at home, any comments i receive just bring me so much joy!! thank you!
have a happy weekend!
