Sold a painting!

God, it's been a long time since posting. I've been so busy with the restaurant, inn, and family holiday stuff, that my painting time has been put on the very back burner! But, after 12 years in the restaurant business, that's the way it goes during the holiday season. The only creative things I have been doing is doing the gallery's (TNPS) design work for their postcards for upcoming shows, updating (and redesigning their website), and also updating my own website. That will have to do for now.

The director the gallery emailed me and said one of my miniature paintings sold! Wooohoooo! Pays for a couple of Christmas gifts. My husband and I are going into town to purchase a big live tree for the front parlor of the inn this afternoon. We'll swing by TNPS and pick up a check. My daughter, Erin, is home from Savannah, GA for a few days. She graduated this past May from Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) with a degree in Illustration. I wish we had more time to visit, but with Thanksgiving and hosting both sides of the family (35 people), it's been a lot of running around and commotion. She's moving back here in the middle to December and will be looking for work in her field. My youngest daughter, Morgan, is home from University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) also. She's going back today...finals coming up next week. Never a dull moment at our house.

My friend, Debbie, and I are looking at workshops to go to. It's hard to find art workshops in the winter that works around both of our schedules. She's a teacher and people will notice if she doesn't show up to work!

Have a great holiday season!
