30NosesTime flies…faster than ever it seems.  Grieving for Sophie took it’s toll.  Sinus infections, colds, flu…holy cow.

So let’s see. This past month I joined about 200 or more artists in a 30 day challenge. It was perfect for me to get back into the swing of things.  We were to choose a subject and do it every day. Ok..guess what I chose!  Noses!!!! Dog noses!!!

For thirty days I painted a different nose in oil on a 4×4 cradled wood board.  Some days I was right on schedule but then some days I was behind rushing to get my daily piece up onto the blog.  You can find them all on my blog… www.sheilawedegis.blogspot.com

When I finished I made a print of all 30 noses.  If you are interested in a print you can email me!

Today I resumed my waterdog series paintings. Trying to insert an image but alas, ….maybe I’ll do another post!!!

We recently found a great RV place near us. Larry, the owner, finds used RV’s of all sorts, refurbishes them and sells them at reasonable prices.

Today we went to look at Class C, truck and living all in one ,and 5th wheels, a long large rig pulled by a truck.  It was great going in them all. One 5th wheel rig was about 37′ long but had everything one could want. Stairs to the bedroom, washer/dryer, queen size bed with closets and bureaus. Oh..shower!!!!  “Downstairs” had a couch, two comfy recliners, a great kitchen and loads of windows.  We did find out a lot of state parks would not let us in. Too long.

Class C vehicles were really nice but with Labs not enough room.  At least for us.  I need a space to sit and work or chill.  So we then looked at a 33′ rig. The layout  was interesting. Bedroom in front and “upstairs” then the living area with kitchen. In the back there was another room with a door that could be a room for company or a computer area.  I think I really like an open concept.

As we were leaving, Larry said he’d really like to see my artwork and,or, have it hanging for sale in his office. LIGHTBULB moment.

I came home and  got “paintingacrossAmerica.com” as my domain name and now trying to figure out how to do a new blog here with that domain and put art up as we go..or prepare..to go.  I will admit it’s scary to think we wouldn’t have a solid “house” but then the other side is, no lawn to mow, I could still have flowers, no outrageous repairs, but we will have some, no pool to keep clean, we’ll have mountain streams and rivers…crazy neighbors?? we can drive away.

Larry’s business is booming. Hmm. I think the baby boomer generation has decided to finally “drop out” and enjoy once more what we thought life would be like. I’m excited.

I’ll let you know when I get the new blog going…of course it will be small Florida paintings to start..lol…

Before I go..I have been doing acrylic painting again since I have more students coming to my studio. This is an 18 x18 . Hope you like it.

I am so excited. I just ordered the Sienna Podache Box, it’s tripod and the extra supply shelf that goes with it.  Thrilled. Roger has really gotten into photography and I thought, he can photograph things and I can paint.  Perfect.  I would love to do a series in maybe watercolor of our inter coastal waterways. Stretch my wings so to speak!!

I have been doing my daily paintings. whew. While working on finishing the 40 x 40’s.  I had me appointment with my Dr about focus meds so we’re trying new ones.  We’ll see how that goes. Tried it first today in the afternoon and was really focused to finish a painting that I had been struggling with.

I.m really pleased how it came out seeing I don’t have a yellow Lab. Well I guess that’s the job of an artist though isn’t it. Haha.

 

A quick study piece of Sammy on my red comforter.

Looking at it reminds me I’m tired so til then…have a great night…I’ll be back tomorrow..really..no..seriously…come on…;-)

Just laying there, snuggled under covers and a Lab curled up on my legs. That’s when it hit me, I forgot my blog.  I had been so excited to do three in a row because as you may or not know, for someone with ADHD, everything after that is usually forgotten.  sigh.

But on the happier side I an show you two paintings!!!

 

yes..day 5 was done previous. Long day.

Fun one tomorrow!   Warmly, Sheila

Well who knew. ! But then it is only day 2 of the new year. I have made  a committment..(Oh please Universe help me with this one)

I sent out my newsletter and said I would be back doing the Weekly Not On The Blog News.  Stories of the Labs and artwork.  Allot of my clients, who are now friends, and people who have joined through my blog page. (How many blogs does this woman have???!!!)

So I completed day 2’s painting. Have to say I love it.  Did emails, newsletter, this blog, the other blog and now I am so ready for a nap, or at the very least a cup of coffee.  Oh..did I mention I also listed 9 older works on ebay? Cleaning house so to speak.  Get rid of the old and make room for the new. Someone said that..I know my mother did quite often.  More like ” Sheila will you throw that “darn” thing away!!!”

My two goofy boys. Not a day that doesn’t go by that they don’t make me roar with laughter!

Here’s the link for that blog.  http://paintingonpaper.blogspot.com/

2012 goal, to figure out how to put in links and paypal on this site. sigh….have a great night. Going off to read friends blogs now!!!

Warmly, Sheila
