Another day of packaging art!  I had framed about six of the 18″ x 24″ watercolors several years ago. Two are hanging up in my home.  I sold one to a friend from high school and the others are stored in the teeny closet in my second bedroom.  To get to them, you have to open a little munchkin door.  It’s very cute and one of the reasons I fell in love with my little bungalow.

The rest of the paintings are here – I finally packaged them, labelled and titled them, and they are ready to be sold.  If I don’t sell them at the Craft & Craft event, I might put them on my Shopify.com site.  I love that people will finally get to see them/buy them/enjoy them!

In addition to these pieces, I readied a gazillion more paintings in sizes 14″ x 20″, 12″ x 16″ and 9″ x 12″.  I will add them into this blog soon.  I am just so tired right now!  Sorta kinda giddy-tired, like I’ve fallen into a magical world and don’t want to escape giddy-tired.

I went on a bunch of errands this morning – to school to borrow my favorite yardstick and the table mat, to the vet for Pablo’s “wellness visit”, to do my walk-about at Green Lakes, to Empire Vision to get my sunglasses fixed, and a bunch of other things.  I’ve been working on this art business since…I want to say 2:00 pm and now it is after 11:00 and I’m not finished.

I really need to wrap this all up and put everything away.  Am having guests over this weekend and the dining room table looks like the aftermath of a tornado at the moment.

Aside from the mess though, I am in love with life right now.  Things seem to be happening in the way I have always wanted them to happen.  I’m grateful to my old self for having a giant prolific period because I have all of this work to share now in a time where a blog post is possible.  I’m grateful that I have a reason to prepare this work and it isn’t going to sit inside a veritable tomb any longer.

These are happy paintings.  They make me so happy and I love being surrounded by this much positive energy.  See, yeah.  Really giddy.
