Nothing new... I have a boring life! Trying to get rested up from the weekend! I have to go in today for some pre-testing. Just another way to waste a day. I am going to hop on over to Etsy to list this ACEO print. I really do need to get painting some fresh art, but my brain is in a fog!

I guess my backpacking days are over. I will be having surgery on my knee again on the 27th of March. The Doc said slow down, small-short hikes now. I was so hoping to backpack down into the Grand Canyon one more time, my memories will have to do. I am sure my feet will thank me!
But maybe if I slow down and sit down I could get some art done!!!
See there's a bright side to everything!

Do you believe in Fairies?

If you believe or not... I just had to try this out!
I do have fairies in my swamp but something happens to them. They get taken over by the swamp.... no longer being sweet......
SO here is my Fairy name

Your fairy is called Bramble Yewfly. She is a weird enchantressShe lives in leafy dells and bluebell glades. She is only seen at midday under a quiet, cloudless sky. She wears bluebell-blue dresses. She has russet-coloured wings like a brightly coloured butterfly.

Well This is Toby Otis also known as Tobias with one eyias. While painting a few ACEO's today he decided to become a lap cat. Between my shaking hand and a pesky cat painting nice straight lines was not working well. After cleaning the paint brushs and the paint puddles up....he decided to ignor me! The good news is I did get a few done!

Got the Paint Brushs out!!

Got the paint brushs out..even managed to get them in paint! It's the starting the takes me the most time. Once I 'get started' everything begins to flow. I had several ACEO backgrounds done, so I started on them first...WOW I have almost completed 7. I am doing blue winter landscapes at this time. While cleaning the brushes I discovered I use 9 paint brushes on the ACEO's! Who would of known that it takes (me) that many different brushes to paint something so small!??
Feeling good about getting something done!...Lynda

Etsy! I did it!

Well I did it! I managed to stumble around and get some items, ACEO prints listed! I will catch on the more I list there. But the good news...wonderful news is I have made three sales!!!!!
There's alot of things hapening over on Etsy!
