ok ...

last week i sold an 'it will be ok' canvas ... so i've made another one ... i absolutely adore the background on this one... it's from a really great old atlas .... i love that top border ....
i have about two weeks before a show ... i have plenty for it but always like have some fresh new pieces ... and am also thinking some extra canvases in smaller sides might be my best bet for sales .... i have in my head a big canvas that i want to do, but am not sure i can get it done in time ... somehow i've made myself extra busy lately ... good busy .. but busy doing things that aren't painting ...

i have a dozen or so websites that i frequent ... one of them is the happiness project ... i loved this post on "you have to have it to find it" ... like, it's easier to find happiness if you are happy ... it's easier to recognize your joys, if you are looking for them .... it's easier to be commited to regular blogging, if you would just go ahead and blog" ..not to mention ... it's easier to get your sweet self up off the couch and exercise, if you've been exercising .... it's easier to remember to take your vitamin every day, when you take it every day ....

that happiness project website is really great ... it is useful, helpful, pragmatic, researched... really the opposite of this blog .... i have giddy happy posts ... and matter of fact story posts ... and la dee da i painted all day posts .... and let me spout out my stream of consciousness posts ... but the happiness project posts are concise ... and generally spot on ... i love them ... go see ... or read the book ... it too is grand ....

happiness to you ... or ... as the painting says ... it will be ok ... hope you're ok ... i'm off to paint so i have something to blog tomorrow ...

I'll go read the HP blog. I have to confess tho that I thought the book was ... well... boring.

Your paintings do make me happy tho and your are right, that border is snazzy.

PS - isn't snazzy a happy word?
