fa la la redux ....

today? more or less the same as yesterday .... 
i procrastinated working on my commissioned piece, but i got working on 20 canvases .....
i got 10 six inch squares papered, glazed, and ornament circle attached .... i blacked the edges, but haven't made the big circles into actual ornaments yet .....i also did 10 canvases that are 12 inch squares ... i did five red and five green .. and cut out big circles to be the ornaments on them... but haven't attached them yet .... 
so ... 20 canvases started today .. crazy huh? allison got here at nine ish .... so we started earlier than usual ..... then when she left? i put in another couple hours ..... i'm feeling absolutely gleeful about having such a great start on my christmas to do's .... i have two shows coming up, and i'm thinking i have enough of these going on that i'll put some in the shows ... they aren't time consuming to make, so even if i sold a bunch, i'd have time to make more for christmas gifts ... right? 
and lest you think all i do is paint any more ..... i've also started internet shopping for christmas ... but ... just like real life in the store shopping, it is hard not to buy stuff for yourself ..... i did get a lot of online shopping done ... but my best purchase was this pair of orange shoes ... orange shoes are the personification of happiness to me ... you can't be grouchy in orange shoes ... i'm sure only happy people buy orange shoes .... one day, i'll write down my life philosophy and i'm sure an important part of it will be the orange shoe manifesto .... 

what shoes make you happiest?

You stun me.
I'm so non-plussed I'm minused. I'm so taken aback, I'm forwarded.

How can a person do so much?

So far, all I have are three 4x4 canvases, still wrapped.

So, watch out!!

love these! (art that is). you've inspired me to try something like this for my girls teachers. i'll let you know how they come out! as far as the shoes...i've been searching for the perfect green shoes lately. i have a very cool pair of green heels, but i'm needing some fun green flats.

I would be grouchy in orange shoes. But I really don't care for orange. Especially on me. And I am not much of a shoe person either.

you've got some serious arting happening at the e.beck house! way to go rock star! ... oh, if I had just a tiny fraction of my to-do's started ...

at the risk of being shunned ... the ugliest pair of pink fuzzy slippers are the ones that make me happiest. :)
