my long-standing joke with myself is that "i want to retire and paint".
i guess it always sounds funny cause painting is what i do now.
but the reality is, most of the painting/creating i do now is with product in mind.
so, inspired by my workshop at Artfest with Jesse Reno, this piece was purely for fun.
and i cherished every minute of it.
okay, okay.. i admit, there were a few moments of frustration.
especially when i felt like i had to paint over some of my favorite spots.
i have to say, all said and done, i love it!
i love the blissful colors mostly but i also love the surprise that awaited me.
p.s. thank you for all your sweet and encouraging comments on my workshop post. :)
i wanted to also tell you that my friends Janne and Shelly will also be teaching at Artfest 2011.
this will be their first time. very exciting!
oh, and did you know... i'm running another marathon in 9 days?
yes, ANOTHER ONE! what was i thinking???
i thought telling you about it might relieve some of my guilt for not even running for the past 4 days!
nope! didn't help! :(
