I spent a very relaxing day painting today. I finished a painting I started several months ago and started another one that will be a children's picture. This is a mixed media. The picture isn't very clear for some reason, I don't know if the adjustments they made when it was sent away have helped, I will have to take lots more pictures to if it working properly.

It is unusual for me to spend a whole day doing my art without getting anxious, so I hope this a breaththrough for me. I really had fun doing this.

I've been absent again. I have been working on a couple of handbags and I finished this one today, it's about 8 by 12:

I got started on my calendar for June today - I feel like I just finished the May one, this month has gone by so quickly.

I am continuing with exercise and eating program and have lost 25 pounds and 32 1/2 inches. It feels good to be able to walk as much I as want without pain and I have way more energy.

I have many ideas of things I would like to do and wish that I was bit quicker at doing things so I could do more. I sold a couple of my tags and a little paper purse - one of the many I made a couple of years ago. I have a hard time letting go of things I have made, I don't know why that is. I don't mind giving them to my kids but I have a hard time selling them. Kind of daft!!!

We are still waiting for spring to start here. We had a sunny day today and yesterday but they only come about two at a time and then we are back to rain again. It is also quite chilly. Not as bad as some places in the world but everyone here is ready for some warm, sunny weather.

A good day for painting and so I did this watercolour and haiku. I still need lots of practice but I
I really enjoyed doing this. It's not a very good scan but I tried it several times and this was the best I could get.

I finally finished my Full Moon Dreamboard a few days ago and it's nearly time for the next full moon!!! It's not a very good picture but the best I could do. The part that is white is actually a victorian nightdress. The word for this month is BEAUTY, so there are lots of flowers and a beautiful bed and sink. I got all of the pictures from Victoria magazines.
This is my calendar for May. Again, not a very good picture.

I haven't been a lot creatively so there hasn't been anything to post for the past week or so. I am just not very consistent!! I visit everyone's blog every day though and enjoy that hour in the morning when I go blog hopping.
