This weekend we are spending time with family in the little town of Sahuarita.  My husband is working around the house helping his brother make some upgrades.  I am sitting at the table in the large guest room, painting away the hours.  I painted three paintings today.  They are all paintings of the countryside of Ireland.  I have never been to Ireland, but I was looking at some basic pictures of the what the countryside looks like and decided to make up a few pieces.  I will post them when I get home and can retrieve them from my camera.  Hasta la vista!

New Endeavor

I have leased a space in a local consignment shop.  My neighbor and friend, Donna and I are sharing it together.  She makes wonderful lotions and creams.  The shop is a nice one and has been in business at the same location for over three years.  It is run by a woman and two of her friends.  Product is quite various, with antiques, clothing, jams and jellies, jewelry, and now even my art work.  To date, there is no other person selling art.

I have been busy printing note cards and matting prints for sale in my booth.  I will also be hanging several originals.  It has been fun hitting garage sales looking for display furnishings.  I found a nice little, solid mahogany night stand in excellent condition.  My note card rack sits perfectly on top of it.  I also found a low bookshelf to place on the back wall of the booth.  One of my original paintings will be placed above it.

Moving day is May 2nd.  Donna and I are planning on doing a quick paint job and then getting set up as quickly as possible.  As soon as it's set, I'll post some pictures here.
