Whoa, what?

Today I wanted to play around with a new header for this blog so I wandered into my photo files trying to find a current picture of Logan.  I was slightly shocked to find I have not taken one picture of Logan since the new year.  What?  No pictures of Logan?  My own little Muse?  The face that never loses my interest has been put on the back-burner.  I am ashamed!  A photo shoot is definitely in order.

I think the tumult of this fall and readjusting to our new normal has really caused me to back off from things that I love.  Stress can really put me in a funk.  But I feel so much hope in our situation.  Nathan is incredibly resilient and I'm trying hard to follow his stride.  Now is the time to fall in love with life again and not worry so much.  There is so much to be grateful for.

Even though the gestation of little Cecily has taken most of my brain power lately I have a lot of exciting work in front of me.  I'm currently working on a series of paintings for a client.  Her family has bought a beautiful cabin up in Sundance and I'm the luckiest girl in the world to work on adorning her walls with my own artwork.  As soon as I stepped foot inside her cabin home I was inspired.  She has incredible taste and has worked her magic for the last year shaping this cabin into a home.  Her color palette is rich in neutrals which makes my job a playground of color to choose from.  She has left the reigns completely in my hands which excites me more than anything.

I've done one painting so far.  It took me a little over a day and a half.  Photos to come.  I want to finish the sides before calling it complete.  I love it.  I secretly want to keep it!

please post pictures of your painting. I want to see it very much.

Congratulations on your own Cecily. I find Cecilys scrumptious. Mine is three now, and a woman of her own mind.

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. When are you due?
