Good morning! [May. 14th, 2005|10:43 am]

[mood |crazycrazy]

You'll never guess what I'm doing today!

Eh, yeah you will - I'm painting!

I love painting, so it's cool, hehe.

This painting is going to be awesome! It's the large landscape piece I was working on late last night - I'm painting the landscape first and then I will be adding a lot of faery creatures - most will be integrated into the leaves and bark - kind of like a "hidden picture" kind of painting. Of course, sometimes I change my mind while I'm working and I go off in a completely different direction, so don't hold me to it, lol!

All right - off to work - you can peek in on me HERE on my webcam!

Y'know, I'm so jealous. I love creating art but I can never find the motivation or muse to do it. How do you keep enthused and happy about doing it so much for so long? Share your secrets!! I WISH I had your motivation. Naw, scratch that; I wish I had your talent. But I'd take your motivation, too :)

Beautiful painting <: )

Aw, thank you! >^__^<

I think it's just that I genuinely enjoy painting. I have an overactive imagination, so I'm never at a loss for ideas really (quite the opposite, lol).

Also since it's my household's only source of income - that's a good motivating factor right there, hehe!

I like how this large one is turning out....

Jasmine , I may have to buy a print of this it gives me the Queen Mab feel out of all your paintings I have to say I love the self portraits of yourself, Queen Mab , Picking Strawberries dam that is a tempting print because I can't eat them. I also want to get snowspell something about her makes me happy Scorpio and the warriorgirl and copperdragon and Sag eventually. I will find a way to get some money, and yes I have not forgotten I owe you twenty..Next month you have a birthday yes...I am thinking of sending you something special. Wednesday Blah 9:00 A.M. our time I am having those cysts in my breast drained I am scared but I will make it, doc says it only takes 10 mins depends on how many I have and the biospy still the needles scare the hell out of me but my chest will be numb and I will be sore for a couple of days. And no more surgery after that. Well have a great day....I wish I could paint, I can't even draw stick fiqures I am good at...Hehe Regards to Matt. Take Care Your friend Sharon..:)

Hi Sharon! It does kind of have a "Queen Mab" vibe to it - there are lots of little hidden faeries and fairy faces!

Thank you so much!

Hehe, yeah - as you can probably tell from my icons here at LiveJournal - I do tend to look like my paintings (or vice-versa!).

A friend of mine showed me your site saying that since I love fairies and dragons I'd like your work. She was right. I do. I love every piece and can't wait to see your next creation. ^_^
