Chair Paintings #1

I'll do anything to trick 'Victoria' into painting...she's my alter ego and will stop at nothing to keep me from painting. Can't tell you the devious tricks she uses...reading, research on painting, facebook, WORK that has to be done, too cold out, too hot out. Then there are the downright mean whispers...you'll never be any good, who do you think you are fooling, what a waste of time, just look at all the 'starts', when're you gonna try to sell something?

I've also been haphazard about posting regularly on this blog...and hit and miss on Facebook. I'm going to focus on the blog awhile and see if I can get back into the groove :)


"Bluebird with Cherry"
4x4" oil on panel $75

So, I bought me a present, a Guerrilla mini box. It is only 5x7, cute little thing, with all the bells and whistles that make their pochade boxes works of art. I devised a method of getting around 'Victoria' when she least expects it: Chair Painting.



I can sit in my comfy chair and leave "Victoria" over by the easel...she'll never know what I'm up to :)

Of course, my chair is leopard print (also is a recliner), and my red leopard print socks (thanks, Erika!).
Now, if I could just figure out how to have the new pochade box AND the two hairy kids, Beemer and BJ in my lap :)

Thanks, Diana...part of my new year promise to me. I'm going to start blogging more cause Facebook is deteriorating!

It was fun browsing in your blog again. I've missed reading your postings - seems I have no time for anything lately than study. thank you for providing a little "escape" in your fun postings!

You are going to be totally lost when you graduate! Can't wait to see you get back to painting for a wee bit of balance...
