It's Friday!!!

.......And I am busy in the studio. It feels so good to create. I'm finishing up several paintings and starting some brand new ones. besides painting, I really need to go through some of my supplies and see what I need to buy and what I need to let go of. I have so much stuff! I'm running out of room.

  My daughter Jaimie, her hubby Wayne and my grandson Shane, are in Texas at the Childrens Museum today. They are moving to Round Rock which is just outside Austin. I am going to miss them terribly but I know that they will have an opportunity to have a better life out of California. It's just to difficult to make a "go" of it here, especially for young families starting out. Jaimie already loves it there and has been texting me beautiful photos. They will be coming home tomorrow.

  The above photo is one of my "studio buddies" Louise, who swims happily around her vase as I paint. I have 4 Bettas altogether, all spread out around the studio. And yes, I talk to them during the day. It gets lonely working in a studio all by yourself, what can I say. Speaking of studio, I had better get back to work. have a great weekend everyone!
