This is what I've been working on. I love them all and will have a hard time parting with them. (Oh well that's the way it goes.) I want them hanging and ready to sell in my friends cafe by Labor day weekend which is also market days in old town Helotes.
My husband said I should list them in my Etsy shop as well as selling in M's cafe but I think that would be playing with fire. I can image the same one selling at both places and then I'd be screwed. But that's me the worrier.
I can not believe it's Labor Day already. Where did my summer go? I have only one more day to wear white. I think that's a stupid rule especially for the south. It's so hot and will be until the end of September and probably well into October. Summer really does not end until the 21st of September anyway.
Hope you all had a great summer..... I'm ready for fall.
Messy desk means creativity is flourishing! I have not been posting much because I've been working, creating, painting, basically having fun in my studio.
My hubby has been traveling a lot. He's been catching up on travel since he was off work most of May and part of June. He is in New York City this week. I'm so jealous. Wish I could have gone with him but not a good time to take wifey on business trip. Oh well. It gives me a chance to work non stop, all day or all night. Whatever my muse decides.
So here is a sneak peek...
I've made five mixed media paintings so far....I'll show them eventually. They are going into my friends new cafe. She wants to hang my art in her restaurant. I'm so excited! So obviously I wont be listing them in my Etsy shop.
I have decided I really don't care if I sell my art. I love making it. I get so attached to each piece it's really hard to give up. This year I stopped selling my art on Etsy and hung up all my pieces in my house. Now I'll decorate my friends cafe. As long as I'm inspired and having fun making things, I'll continue on.
I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted something here. I guess my summer has been busier than I thought. We did not have a vacation planned for this summer but we did manage to take a few day trips and a couple of overnight trips.
One overnight trip was to our capital city Austin to see the capitol. It's been years since we visited.
It's such a lovely building and I love downtown Austin.
We also did a little bit of antiquing. Austin has a few weird places to visit. You know the saying "Keep Austin Weird".
Uncommon Objects is a fun, fun antique store on South Congress. All of South Congress is neat. There are a butt load of vintage clothing stores there too. Now I know where to go if I need a Mad Men style 60's dress. I wish I had a reason to buy one. Maybe for Halloween??? I'll be back Austin.
We also went to a few winery's and visited Wimberley Texas. I did not take any pictures of either place, but here is a fat cat that lives at one of winery's. Isn't she sweet?? I sure miss my cat.
My niece had her wedding reception this weekend near Houston. What a great time for all of us!
I danced my little patootie off.
This is a video of one of the line dances.
I love our family weddings: dinner...dancing all night long and of course lots of drinking. It's what I call a good ole Texas Czech wedding. We evan did our bohemian grand march at the beginning.
Sorry it's so dark and small but the video was shot with my I phone. Oh well...I think you get the idea.
Hope your summer is going well.
