Jr. Bridesmaid

Another page from my art journal "new year new me". This turned out to be a really nice healing exercise. I was a Jr. bridesmaid for my sisters wedding years ago. I was too old to be a flower girl and too young to be a bridesmaid. I had a little bit of a traumatic experience during the wedding. Not sure I will write about it here but it's all there under the paint. I love  how I can write about it in a journal then cover it up with paint. That way I don't have to be embarrassed about it all over again but at least get it out and turn it all around and go on. 

I'm so glad the weather is nice. I'm able to work in my studio again where all my paints are. I've been working in the yard too. It's killing my back. I love yard work but I have to be careful. I don't know when to stop and then it's too late. Then my back is beyond just resting a bit. There is so much to do, everything is dead.
I have a secret heehee. I wish I could tell, but my husband would die if he knew I was telling the whole world. It's been all I can think about and I can't wait. It will be told eventually.

Texas Girl

 I really want to do her on a canvas or board, but this one on watercolor paper turned out so cute I don't know now. This cold weather we have been having lately has really put me in a funk. All I want to do is draw and practice faces. I finally made myself put this face on watercolor paper and do something with it. So I'm happy now.
Rodeo is going on in San Antonio. It goes on for a couple of weeks. It's a big deal, lots of concerts and such. Hence the inspiration for Texas Girl. And yes we Texas girls do wear cowboy boots. I love mine. I guess the one I do on canvas will have to include boots.  My head is spinning with ideas.
Enjoy the weekend and wow Valentines is Monday. Me and my hubby will be celebrating it tonight because he will be out of town. :( on Monday.
