A Rainy Tuesday

It is so dreary and rainy today. I am thankful for the rain, for the flowers sake, but I would so love to get out and enjoy the spring warmth! It's supposed to get into the 70's tomorrow, so I'm hoping that the rain will hold off for a couple hours so we can play!

Here is a peek at what is on my work table this week. I'm not sure how much more I will do with her before she is deemed "finished".

I am really liking the idea of painting with just 3 or 4 colors on the palette. In this case I used burnt umber, vermilion, sap green, and lamp black. Then I just mixed colors and tones within that scope. It's very freeing!! The original drawing is outlined with a super fine sepia pitt pen.

I am sorry that I have taken so long to update you all about the fair. The Big Thaw was so much fun! I sold a rather large painting within 5 minutes of opening, we were actually still setting up when the woman came to look at it. We had a couple of issues with our setup in the beginning, but we got it worked out =). The foot traffic was quite steady for the whole day, and we made a few decent sales, and lots of new connections. We have another art show or two in the works for this spring/summer. I will give more details once we know more.
