Lately . . .


"I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. 
No brush, no paint, no canvas. I just think about it."
-- Stephen Wright


It's perfect right?! And exactly how I've been feeling lately. Life's been especially busy but still, I haven't even walked in the studio in weeks. . . . So today, I'm gonna do something about that. Even if I just slap a coat of paint on something, I'm gonna make a mark . . . .

In the meantime, I'm looking forward to this Friday's Charity Auction benefiting The Sandy Hook Elementary School. The blog hop will take place Friday, the 15th and can be accessed through the Paint Party Friday webpage. 

(My auction item sneak peek)

I will be auctioning off a hand-painted decorative somethin'-somethin' and can't wait to see what the other participants have up for grabs. Details for my auction can be found here on Friday and event details can be found below:


All proceeds will go directly to a Newtown, CT charity.

So, wish me luck in getting paint under my fingernails today & I'll see you Friday . . . .
