I'm insane, surely, work in progress

I have a show to hang tomorrow, I have almost all the work done and for some reason started painting the biggest painting I have ever done. It's 48x60. I have issues, people.
I hope I can get it done though, and hope it's not too little kiddish or not Gig Harborish.
I can always hang it in our bedroom.

Asher "helping" me paint

It's absolutely horrible, I know, but I didn't let him use any paint, just water, because I am trying to get this painting done for a show. But he did that right alongside me all weekend.
He still calls me mom. I say grandma, but he has other ideas. How do you like that bed head? We were home alone all Saturday so we stayed comfy in our bed heads and jammies.

The Language of Peace among Dogs

My mom sent me these articles by Turid Rugaas about dog behavior and their calming signals and they are so interesting. They send signals to calm US down! Almost makes me want to get a puppy and start over. But I won't. The picture is of our Greyhound, Flight, who does not live with us anymore. I'm missing her today.

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who has purchased something from the sale. There are still quite a few pieces left, so shop away. My little studio is so tiny and selling it all (or most) will move me in the direction of painting some more.Not sure how long I will leave it up.I have a show in November in Gig Harbor, so I need to get cracking on some new paintings.

 I've been packing up my kitchen for the last few days, finally finished tonight, whew! We have a little kitchen with the refrig and hotplate set up in the dining room. It will be soup, crockpot or take out for a few weeks. Ryan spent all day with a jackhammer on the basement floor and will probably be doing the same tomorrow.
I hope to get everything purchased so far shipped on thursday.

Studio Sale

I'm having a studio sale, to celebrate moving back into my tiny studio! I will be listing things on etsy all day.If you mention my blog when you check out, I will send you a free print.Oh, what the heck, I'll send a free print anyway.
This picture is in our newly renovated bedroom. I painted our dresser and nightstands black and bought them some new knobs. They look pretty good....Also, I made roman shades for our bedroom windows. They still need some adjusting. We are heavily into the second phase of the remodel, basement just about demolished and the kitchen is next, so everything is still pretty much a mess, except for the sweet haven you see in the picture above. It is so nice.I gotta take some pictures of the finished bathroom, except there is still trim paint to do and masking tape everywhere. But I swear, that shower makes me a nicer person.

***update: I've listed some original paintings for only $10! Check it out!
