in focus


Oh, Roy. I love you, ahem, ROYGBIV.
I made these 12 little camera paintings this summer for Craft Weekend
but I couldn't show you because it had to be a surprise for the ladies.
I wanted to keep them. It's that color spectrum thing that gets me every time.

My camera broke.
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. My precious camera broke.
Mr.Wonderful bought me that camera 5 years ago, maybe 6.
It was my Christmas present.
I had no idea how to use it because it was a DSRL and I had never even heard of them and he stayed up all night reading the instructions because I don't read instructions and because he loves to read instructions (meant to be right?).
Thankfully my sister has a nice camera she is letting me borrow.
For now, I cry every day (not really, but maybe) and have to decide what to do. . . fix or not to fix.

I am going to be taking a break soon.
A good break! I signed up for Creative Courage, and I am beyond excited. The only art classes I took were Art History in college and you know, Art in grade school. Now I am having a chance to take an amazing course led by 12 other artist. I can't wait.
I won't be painting as much for the shop, where by the way I just added two new paintings. Go see.
Also, I may put the shop on vacation.
I haven't quite decided, but y'all know where to find me (:
I am going to spend some time focusing on projects for myself like learning how to crochet and cleaning out my inbox and the holidays and other things like that.

What are you focusing on right now?

  5. Love 'em! They're so great and I remember learning about ROYGBIV in high school :) They turned out great and I'm sure they were hard to part with!
    I'm focusing on my day job- getting all my staff up-to-speed with the start of another school year. It's chaotic, but I love it!

  6. they're gorgeous. :) PROUD OF YOU for having the courage to sign up for that 12 week course! so so envious of your courage to a) sign up for a 12 week course & b) learn to let go & learn another style & art form. in the end i am SURE you will learn so much about yourself - being forced to grow outside of your comfort zone. GO GIRL. GO. and ENJOY!!!!

  8. Umm, LOVE those!!! So, if you're taking a break, does that mean if I have an idea in my head about a custom tea cup painting to give as a Christmas gift, I should go ahead and convo you about it?

    Also, I LOVE crocheting! There is something so relaxing about the rhythm of it.
