I’m Busy, Busy, Busy!!!

I have the best son, He came out to help me on Mothers Day.  He was able to fix my BR window that was leaking.  He also fixed the gemerator exhaust pipe that had fallen.  Then we took off for a road trip and ended up in Benicia on the east side of San Francisco Bay where we had lunch at Sailor Jack’s.  We had a 45 minute wait for a table, so we wandered through some of the shops and galleries.  I really like Benicia.  It’s a quirky little seaside town.  I’ll have to go back there when I can take my time and wander some more.

While I was out wandering throughout the Delta, I have made several stops to add to my art supplies.  I am mainly painting with watercolor and acrylics in addition to the needle felting. With all the money that I have been spending, I thought I had better try to recoup some of it by selling some of my work.

I have been trying to get out and involved, so have been going to the Senior Center in Rio Vista on Fridays.  There a few women that get together and bring their needlework.  So I bring some of mine to work on too.  Afterwards we haave lunch. It’s a $3.00 donation and I have met some other people too.  They have encourged me to check out getting a table to set up on “Third Thursday and try to sell some of my stuff.  That’s what I have done and I have been invited to do just that.  This coming Thursday will be the first time.  At first I didn’t think that I had enough inventory, so I just got to work and have been painting like crazy.  I need to finish the tote below to add to the inventory.

While I was in Benicia, at one of the galleries, one of the artists there, had done several small paintings and displayed them on a thread spool rack.  I thought it was a good idea, so I have done the same.  the four paintings below are quite small.  Maybe if I have more affordable art, I’ll be able to sell some of my things.

These are the first paintings that I have done to increase my invento.ry

This is the the most recent painting of the flags by the river just in front of the Rio Vista City Hall.

                                                Wish me luck!

In addition to the paintings above, and the Tote ( hopefully it will be finished ), I will put out some Needle Felted items.

This past week has been quite pleasant and it looks like this coming week will be more of the same.  I hope that you all are having the same wherever you are.

Thanks for visiting
