coulda, shoulda, woulda...

i should be blogging every day because i am SOOOOO behind ... i just downloaded 35 photos that i COULD be posting here one at a time and writing lovely, informative prose for you .... but instead, i'm hoarding them in my camera .... 

here's the first one .... my kitchen wall ... the only white wall in my whole house ... kept white for the sole purpose of displaying art ... (soul purpose seems like appropriate spelling too)
those painted chairs are some of my favorite things in my whole house .... at dinner i always try to sit in a green one ... my kids don't know that! ... i don't let them pick and choose where to sit based on color ... ha ..... and lately while i've been working on my outline for my novel (eep!), i have been sitting in a sunshine yellow chair ... it seems like the good cheer should be helpful .... 
can you tell i painted those chairs to go with my art?

the next pic .... three 12 inch square canvases .... did them last week (or the one before that?) at allison's ..... nice shot of my doodle clogs too .... 
 the trouble is, now that i have these tree pics ... i don't know what to do with them ... or how to finish them ... for now, they look like they were painted by one of my kids .... oh well ... they felt nice while i was doing them .. maybe they were just about the process and not the product ... and i can just paint over them and reuse the canvases ... we'll see .... 

but ... three tree canvases wasn't enough .... i did a larger one too .... 
also incomplete ... and i don't know how to finish it ....

but, i'm skipping out on these paintings and switching to christmas paintings ... i think i've struck on what i'm going to paint for my pals ... and maybe teachers .... and i need to get going on that, to make sure it really gets done ... particularly since november is being taken up with writing a novel (can you tell i'm a bit obsessed with that?) ... but, before we can move onto christmas paintings, we have to get on with the joy that is october: 
little e.beck. artist was having trouble getting the pumpkin from the garage to the front porch ... but she ended up being quite clever .... 

i have pumpkin pictures, journal pictures, journal entries.... all sorts of things to blog about tomorrow ... oh ... and pottery tomorrow ... so blog hop yourself back over to see ..... or drop me a comment and let me know what to do with all those trees ....

love your art as always, but love those shoes you have on too!! did you do them yourself?

see you there! said...

I like the big tree painting because it has the tree off in that edge - I needs words, maybe something along the lines of your "rules" thing - but words.

the trees will develop on their own if you just watch them....Something will hit you between the eyes..."ah, yes, that is what I should do!" Wait and see! maybe illustrations for "the book?" :-)
