keeping busy....

Not finished yet but getting there, i think i last worked on this on Sunday. This has been a busy week, I had a 90 shirt order to do and I finally finished packing all the paintings getting shippped, hopefully they will all arrive safely. Went and saw a really really really really bad movie with Brian on wed, good thing it was free. It was Day of the Dog or something. Just really bad.

Anyway, hopefully i will get a chance to paint this weekend.. tomorrow I need to take back my house, it is a DISASTER. I'll post an update soon as I get to paint again....

Well no new art this week, got bitch-slapped by the IRS monday night, went to the zoo and got alot of photos, got a friend visiting from out of town and sinus headaches because of the 7% humidity. Excuses, excuses......

Getting my paintings ready to ship to the gallery, hopefully Monday or tuesday. Just waiting on the contract. Im also going to get busy doing some more packing and thinning out of my belongings beforfre moving back to NJ. 42 more days.....

Hopefully i will get some art made in the next couple days......

I have not forgotten you....

bad Joni!!! Letting the blog go this long! Well the past is past...

Happy Easter! I have done a few pastels this week. I meant to do one today but I got lazy.. well it is a holiday so I guess im entitled to an occassional lazy day.

This past friday was first friday Artwalk and I brought some old paintings and put them out for $10 - $30 just to get rid of them... I made $90 on paintings that otherwise would have gone too the dumpster. It was a good nite :)

I got some good news this week but... Im not going to go into details just yet but it looks like I got accepted into a Gallery. More details on this later :) Im excited though!

So anyway..... Here are the last few pastel paintings I have done in the last week.

Mossy Beach 27"x21.5"

big big big pastel

Yesterday i went to a yardsale at an artist home and although there wasnt very much there besides a ton of art magazines, books and frames, i did get 3 large sheets of sanded pastel paper. So I decided today to try a large pastel painting. The paper measure 27"x22" (i think ... i'll have to remeasure to be sure)
Here is where i got today, this is the easy part, the hard part is next...
