new work

Well it looks like I am in superwoman mode because I actually found time to finish two new pieces, take pictures of them, and find time to make a post ( I also baked cookies for my kids). Both of these new pictures ar rather introspective, I guess all of my work is in a way. The first picture is titled Beauty Before the Breakdown. I really love the way that this turned out. I have been struggling with my oil paintings as of late. I haven't been happy with how tight they have seemed as compared with my pastels, but this one turned out or at least I feel satisfied with the outcome. The title came from a song that I was listening to from a mix that my sister Kathy sent to me. That line beauty before the breakdown really stuck with me. It made me think of my mommy meltdown moments that I have with my kids sometimes. In one moment everything is lovely and blissfull and in the next we are all becoming lunatics. It must be winter!

This one is so great! It reminds me of the first night at home with my little girl. She was so tiny and I didn't want to put her in her crib. So I tried to stay up all night and hold her and look at her while she dreamed. We both woke and slept through out the night but it was one of the best nights of my life. I can't believe she will be 1 year old in 3 weeks! I love this painting! Thank you!
