Pregnant Lady Good Day

Here's a bit of news, I'm 11 weeks pregnant and due on 1/1/11. Here is a little abstract painting based on that. The baby is 5.4cm and already has arms, legs, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Most importantly the doctor said, "A little butt and big head. " Funny.

Austin, Texas from Auditorium Shores, Mini Painting

I found the cutest tiny canvases on Wednesday and painted two of them with my tiniest brush yesterday morning. I found a new spot, under the blue gazebo at Auditorium Shores. Nice and shady, with a great view of the condos and the water. One squirrel was a bit friendlier than expected, but I survived. This canvas is 2" x 3". My husband says I should market these tiny paintings as cubicle desk paintings. He may be right, because I like seeing them on my desk.

360 Condo, Austin, Texas, Close Up

Here is another painting from yesterday's outing. I will head out later this morning to work on some others. I bought these tiny little 1" canvases, I'm dying to see if I can actually get a painting on them.
I'm also working on my Etsy store, so it should be simpler soon to buy any paintings you may fancy.

Yesterday was my second day with a chunk of free time in the morning. I grabbed my paints and set a goal: 3 paintings. I started at 9am. It was already so hot at 9 and by 11 when I finished I was ready for cold water and AC. This is the first of my paintings. I sat on the stone steps off the Lamar Bridge.

View from Lamar Foot Bridge, Lady Bird Lake, Train Bridge, Austin, Texas

My daughter has summer camp mornings 5 days a week. I work 3 days a week. Yesterday, I had my first morning off from mommy work and work work, in 5 years. I grabbed my paints and sat on a bench on the Lamar Foot Bridge and did a little painting. I miss the ocean and RI more in the summer, so it was nice to spend some time staring at the lake.
