|11x13 Watercolor on Canson 140lb Coldpress Paper|
The new year brought the flu, I feel as though I have been sick more often than not this year, ugh! Two rounds of bronchitis, the flu, the stomach flu and just recently a cold. I'm thinking it's because I'm not typically around little ones until meeting my boyfriends very large family. Every time one of the kids has the sniffles, I get sick.
February brought the death of one of my boyfriend's brothers. My boyfriend is the youngest of nine children and they are all very close. It was hard to watch him go through that kind of pain. It also brought my birthday and more spoiling from my boyfriend in the form of Kohls and Hobby Lobby giftcards. I got some great clearance deals at Kohls and a wonderful Wilton cake decorating kit along with some painting supplies from Hobby Lobby.
So far March has proved to be following along with the previous months bad luck, my bf's family dog got very sick. I spent a week there caring for him. Poor thing could not eat, barely walk and was having a tough time breathing. After several vet visits and a misdiagnosis it was determined that he had metastatic cancer and we had to put him down. One of the hardest things I've had to do. The good news so far this month...my daughter got engaged! They just moved into a new townhouse and needed some artwork for their walls so she came over and 'stole' some of my oil paintings for her bedroom and has asked me to do an acrylic painting of Ganesha. He's a little Indian elephant god, yikes! My experience with acrylics has not been the best so far, but it's a pretty simple painting so hopefully it goes well!
Also hoping that April will finally bring some good news as well as some spring weather. Can't wait to open windows and feel the warmth of the sun. Hope you all have a great weekend, please stop by Paint Party Friday to see all of the wonderful artists and their creative works!
