Watercolor paintings



I created some watercolors last night.
i think i might sell them as postcards.

what do you think?

i think i shall do some more...






I am starting to get a little worried about sales. I have not made any sales on etsy in a while, and despite my efforts to keep it out there, Im not sure what to do. This is what I want to be doing. But since I have decided to make it my living, it sucks to need to make money from it. But I am going to keep on trucking, thats been my motto from the beginning. Its just a slow period, and hopefully things will pick up in the fall. For now I will continue to work on new peices to bring to the tables when the leaves start to turn.

I CANT WAIT!

all i want to do is photoshoots in the fall.

i am going to be more daring.

take on new models.

try new looks.

im hot for it!

CHECK OUT SOME NEW LOVELIES IN THE SHOP!



PEACE,

ha ha, this is james playing Call of Duty at night, one of his favorite things to do.
this is the look Bella gives me every morning because she wants to go in the back room. she will cry to go back there, sniff through a bit, and then shes satisfied and done.
...silly pics of me and james with his dad's unibomber glasses. ive posted some before, but they make me laugh, i couldnt help it.

I LOVE THIS ONE!

...and then the evening started...



...so no more pics after this point, but many started leaving and the rest stayed up until 2:30 in the am in the backyard singing. it all started when jonny and renea broke out a Bright Eyes song they had been practicing for my birthday, i loved it so much!!! what an awesome gift. then La La showed us what she was learning on guitar, a Brandi Carlile song. Then Sara busted out accapella, and so did her sister eventually. they even got me singing along with them in a drunkin lullabies session, although i wasnt drunk. jen sang too and that girl has an amazing voice! sally and walkin jon stayed for most of it as well, enjoying watching all of us crazy kids. it was so much fun, hands down the best bday party. now i want to do backyard bbqs all the time for the hell of it. it was so nice to get all of my friends together, none of them are really friends with each other, and i think everyone really enjoyed each other. it was nice to see them all in one place. i could of invited about fifty more people, so if you are my friend and didnt come, i am sorry, i had to stop somewhere! i love you though!

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO CAME AND ENJOYED MY DAY WITH ME, I AM BLESSED TO HAVE SUCH WONDERFUL PEOPLE IN MY LIFE.

AND THANK YOU JENJEN FOR THE PICS, I LOVE THEM!

peace,
