9x12" canvases

knock-out roses

four 24x36" paintings are almost finished, 3 canvas, 1 hardbord

Glimples of yesterday via my phone camera. Looking back, I think it turned out to be a good day. Not measured by items crossed off the to-do list. Even though it included a trip to the dentist for a cracked tooth. Even though I am wearing my back-up glasses because I broke the good ones last week. Even though I dropped a rock on my foot Saturday and it aches. Yes, I am very, very clumsy. Did I mention the dropped bottle of fluid matte medium on the hardwood floor on Saturday as well? As in, glue? Nonetheless the pre-summer weather was lovely and the girls and I took full advantage outdoors after school. We have to pack in the fun before temps exceed 100 degrees. The girls splashed in the pool and told each other invented stories while I took the opportunity to bring my art stuffs outside. Alphabet stamps, index cards, pens, etc. Prepping for the start for Index-Card-a-Day.

Looks like a lovely day! Holy moly those are big canvases/panels you've been working on! Love the riot of colour. Heh. I am clumsy too AND I have been putting off going to the dentist to fix my chipped tooth. Sigh. I guess I should make an appointment....

Those are awesome large paintings! What are you going to do with them?

{Tammy}: Marcia, the short answer is that I don't know. I am contemplating putting them up for sale, but haven't worked out the logistics as to shipping them! I truly don't know if they would sell, and I would like to keep at least one for my dining room. I am planning a massive set of about 10 paintings all on one wall!!!

Way to make the best of it Tammy! Hope your foot feels better soon!! I bet that swim felt wonderful :D

Gorgeous work! I have never worked that large.

I hope you feel better soon--please be careful! I have a friend who cut her finger badly on the first day of graphic design school (XActo knife). Art can be hazardous!

Stunning canvases Tammy! Hope the foot feels better soon. This morning I bailed and scrapped off half of my left knee. You're not the only clumsy one my dear...not at all! xx

These look so lovely - you are so talented!! I enjoy the visual candy! It is Godiva for the eye!!!
