My friend recently informed me that when the weather gets hot, people become MEAN! I have been reduced to tears a couple of times this week over mean comments from people and today I decided to recognize that maybe they are just reacting to their own stuff. I’m not going to let it get me down any more!
I am so excited about my paintings right now! I finished my second in the Little People series and I’m making plans to start my third one next Monday. The plan is to finish six of these before school starts in the Fall and I am starting to feel like I could be done with that goal far earlier than expected! I haven’t emailed the new one to my mentor yet. Still feeling “not quite done” and it’s still existing in the studio without a signature. Maybe soon I’ll feel ready for the criticism. And hoping he won’t say something involving the word “redo”. I’m currently planning about three hours work on this one. For now, here she is:
For those of you that don’t know, my brother and sister in law are adopting a little girl and she is due in TWO WEEKS! I cannot explain how excited I am to meet her! I’ve already decided that I’m going to be the “cool” Aunt. We will visit art museums and I’ll be the one she calls from her dorm one day when she is too scared to call home. But until then, I got her a pink hoodie and tiny pink converse to wear. Also planning on giving a couple artistically inclined gifts when she arrives. It’s going to be awesome.
Happy Summer, friends!
