What has everyone on the east coast been doing these days, aside from dealing with hurricanes? I cannot answer for everyone else but for me, I've been painting a butterfly garden on gallery canvas. First though, let me thank my blogging friends who wrote to check on me and my family, it was very kind of you and I appreciated your concern and the time you took to write. We came through the storm very well at our house, no damage at all, not even enough rain to flood the basement. We were lucky.
I know I sure needed a break from thinking about the hurricane so I've been busily painting away this week to finish my latest piece. "Butterfly Garden" is painted on an 8" h x 24"l x 1 1/2" deep gallery canvas.
It is sometimes the perfect remedy for what is going on around me, things that I cannot control, like hurricanes for instance, to lose myself in a new creative endeavor.
I have had a few people over the years ask me if I accept layaway for my paintings. Yes, I do offer layaway and am happy to do so on any piece of artwork. If you see something you like but would like to pay for it in smaller, more bite size pieces, feel free to contact me and I will tell you all about it.
Things are going well with our house in Orlando as well. We just had the home inspection yesterday and all went very well. I wanted to post some inside pictures as the current owners have done a really beautiful job on renovations. The above is part of the master bath (this is the first time in my life I will ever have had a master bathroom) they installed a beautiful cabinet for the sink, granite counter tops and a lovely mirror.
The master bathroom shower above has gorgeous tile work and it is huge. The kitchen has granite counters, stainless steel and totally refinished cabinets, with a lovely tile floor. It is an eat in kitchen (also something I've never had before and am looking forward too) that part of the photo is off to a side we cannot see right now. It will be fun to show more pictures when we move in months from now but I want to wait as the other parts of the house have the homeowner's decor and furnishings. I will wait till we have painted and decorated as we would like, before I show the rest.
