Soap Trade

Were incredible enough to trade with me for soap. I love hand made soap but since I am a bit broke I had to trade for it. They were wonderful and now I have a stash of soap!!! Beautiful wonderful soap. I wish I could use all 5 bars at the same time ;) Please do visit their shops they have some incredible products.
Thanks again Ladies!

For some reason I did not show this new painting earlier. Last year I created 4 pieces each 4x4 inches and mixed media, that represented the seasons. This year I am going back to the 'Seasons' series but with painthings. I am crazy about trees right now, if you know let me know
I hope to finish the rest of the paintings next week when I am off from school.

Little birthday cards a friend of mine ordered. One is for a brand new person only a year old and the other is for a not so new person ;)
I used fun collage papers. What do you think? I really like the birthday cake one, it might go to the Shop.

I don't think I have told you about this beautiful painting, that is happily sitting
The Shop I either paint from reference or I go the other way around an create completely abstract paintings. Fantasy is not my cup of tea but from time to time, there is a little whimsical painting that finds itself out on my canvas. What do you think? A little too out there for me or just right on the button? I like it a lot because it is taking me away from my reality, the finance textbooks on my desk, and puts a little smile on my face.

I knew this was coming, I have see a lot of people get tagged so I guess my turn was coming. I was tagged by tomate d'epingles

Five things you don’t know about me….
Keep in mind I am not in a very good mood. Sorry.
1. I suffer from anxiety when it comes to the future. I can’t take risks no matter how much I would like to. I always have to know how I would get home if I was out partying, if I was to go on a vacation I need to know where the money for my car will come from, the rent etc. I have to always be prepared otherwise I can’t do anything. I would love to forget about everything and move to New York to be an actress, go to fashion school to be fashion designer.
2. I am scared of driving. I always picture horrible things happening. In bad weather I freeze and drive as slow as possible. This has been happing since Paul and I were in a car accident about 3 years ago.
3. I keep everything thinking that I would need it later. I used to be a lot worse, but the apartment is still filled with useless things. I think it is because when I was little we didn’t have much and now that I can sometimes buy things I keep them forever. For a single night away I have a full, zipper bursting, overnight bag.
4. I hate penny pinching every dollar. For some people change is nothing, for me a quarter is a fortune. I really wish that when I have a regular job, I can stop worrying about money and get some sleep. I would love to be able to go out for a night instead of sitting at home wanting to go out but not doing anything because all I can think about is how much it will cost.
5. I am very lazy. I will sit here and dream but not get off my butt and do something about it. Perhaps the above points add to this fact.
So I am the person you thought I was.

hmmm Fantasy is not my subject matter and yet it is starting to show up here and there. This painting is more a play on the colors and textures, as I have never used silver paint before. What do you think?
My Cafe Mocha Tree sold the other day and I was missing the swirlyness of it. This shape can be found all over my lecture notes, I dont' know what it is about it. I have been trying to stop, but it's not always working.

Today I am working on my assignment for my Strategy class. We are using a program called CAPSTON and so far I have created a mess trying to figure out where to get my innitial information from.

After this horror is done, I have to finish my little commission piece. I have to say that I really like doing commissions. They make me try new things, sometimes very unexpected, and push me to learn. I like them and they pay well ;)
