So, what do you get when you mix people, framed art, wind (lots of wind), paper, a baby, sun (and thus, a slight sunburn), and a massage? My day. Weird, busy, exciting, inspiring, helpful, profitable, and somewhat stressful. I was at the Spring Fling this morning and afternoon, featuring my art and the painting365 project. I love the excitement that people have for the project and my blog. It is immensely encouraging!
We did have one tragedy today that about ripped my heart out… While I was painting the painting for today a huge gust of wind blew and almost knocked over one of my largest, and most expensive frames, so, of course, I ran to catch it, not knowing that my painting had also gotten caught up in the wind and fell onto Annalisa’s face, leaving a little cut on her cheek. It looks so sad, and I felt horrible. But, 30 seconds later, she had forgotten all about it and was back to her old self playing and smiling at everything.
I did this painting while sitting at the booth, in between visitors, and while working on my tan. It is a 9x11 acrylic painting on panel called “The Grass is Greener Here”. And, even with all the ill will I felt towards it after cutting my daughter, I still find if very pleasing and think it would make a great accent, or point of intrest in pretty much any room in your house! I have posted it on my Etsy page!
