Sunday Drawing

I just finished up a wonderful week with my sister, Sari, and a few days with my mom and my dad.  We enjoyed craft time, El Tour de Tucson bike race, movies, restaurants, and lots of pie.  They were reluctant to leave the sunshine, but managed to pull themselves away.  Now, I'm looking forward to getting back to work.

This Thanksgiving I am the most thankful for the surprise little blessing we get to add to our family.
I hope you have had a wonderful day.

 I took an entire day off of painting (... and just about everything else) to craft.  Sometimes you just have to do that - it's good for the soul.  Cass and I started these dolls when she was here last month.  I have a baby shower tonight for a mom having a boy and adopting a girl.  I am in love the the little boy's tight, polk-a-dot shorts.  You know, boys can have dolls too.  These dolls are the perfect size for a little fist to grasp and squish, and chew on.  I've been experimenting with fabric flowers, which I used to top off the girl's head.  Very Frida-like.
I think this guy needs a little pair of suspenders.  Back to work.  Wish I could make a hundred of these!! Sister come back!!

Poor Rudolph

The other reindeer wouldn't let her play in their reindeer games.  Art Access Gallery in Salt Lake City is selling these stockings decorated by some fabulous artists on the next gallery stroll.

Tweet-ity Tweet

I totally tweet.  Like, every day.  You can follow me @empaints.  I've been using twitpics to snap of shot of what I am working on every day.  I hope to have some interesting progressions to watch as my paintings develop.  Look to the left and you can follow me on Twitter.
