these red tulips are in full bloom in the front of my house. they were bouncing a joyous little dance in the wind as i snapped this photo.
what an exciting week this is turning out to be!! on monday i sold a small original canvas on etsy. yesterday i received a commission for an 18" x 24" original that will be sent to bermuda to hang in the home of a co-worker's friend. my co-worker and i also discussed two additional commissions she is interested in purchasing. today i sold the "blue flowers serenade" original pictured in my 4/19/08 blog below to my dear, dear friend pammie. plus pammie ordered an original to coordinate with "blue flowers serenade". my friend, laura, has asked me to create a custom journal for her sister; it will feature some of her mother's hand-written recipes.
today i finished the invitations to my artist reception to be held at the art in motion gallery in kettering on may 11th. and, i'm pulling together everything i need to do to get ready to teach 4 mixed media collage classes at the gallery during the month of may!!
so, in addition to the beautiful spring weather there is a feeling of newness and possibility in the air! i feel mostly excitement as my job ends and i start this next chapter in my life. there is sadness and a longing for it to last just a little longer so we don't have to all say goodbye. but i do believe that when one door closes another opens. the new door opening for me is going to blow a huge blast of wonderful creative fresh air that will carry me to unexplored places of wonder. and i'm ready for it!!
