I’ve been away from blogging for a couple of months due to family matters. In March, my dad fell and injured his neck and has temporary paralysis, so I have been making a few trips back and forth to Oregon to visit and help out during his recovery. I must say…. it is FREEZING cold in that neck of the woods. I am back home this week in sunny California and enjoying our 80 degree weather. Everything is blooming and inspiring me to paint.
One good thing about not blogging for a while, is that I have lots of artwork to share. While sitting with my dad, I had lots of time to sketch and in between trips, I’ve created a few paintings in the studio. And my stress release habit of creating jewelry… well, let’s just say, I have quite a few new pieces I need to photograph and load to my online store. 🙂
I just looked thru my posts and noticed I haven’t shared this sweet little 8″ x 10″ painting that I made in February.
It most certainly embraces my absolute love and fascination for everything vintage! And yes, I added wings! 🙂 I’ve collected and worn vintage dresses and jewelry since I was a teen, and love to use old dress forms to display my jewelry.
I hope you are doing well and I look forward to catching up on everyone’s blog posts.
I wish you a wonderful, creative, day, Janell
