Sorry that my posting has been pretty infrequent, but you see…well, I’ve been in a whirlwind of happy. It started with a reunion with my oldest sister and has been moved into writing like a mad woman, filling canvas after canvas and then this super fun thing called the Renaissance Festival. I’m going to share some of those pictures…
I had the best time going and being with people I love made it even better. The girls had a wonderful time (well…except for several meltdowns brought on by heat, crowds and the desire to ride a camel that I deemed a big “HECK NO” because I am a mean mommy like that)
Here is the latest canvas I am working on…lots of detail to be done, but here is your sneak peek.
And lastly I decided to get a tattoo. I’ve wanted one for a while, but suffered through my Baptist raising of my body is a temple thing. I’ve finally decided if the big Italian churches can have elaborate murals that cover walls and ceilings…my temple can have one little picture.
I probably should have shave my legs before this picture but hey…whatever. I chose a butterfly because it is my “symbol”. I could go all metaphoric on you, but I’m sure you can figure it out. I mentally prepared myself for the pain, but I realized that my preparation was almost not enough. My sisters were with me and I treated it like I was in labor. I chose them to be my focal point. They reminded me to breathe and then when it got really bad…my twin handed me her iPhone and I watched happy scenes from Mary Poppins. The artist (if you call someone who is carving on your skin an artist) laughed and said that was a first in the studio. Nothing like a spoon full of sugar to make the etching go down.
SO that’s what I have been up to. Hope to write more meaningful posts later, but I’ve been busy stretching my new wings and being caught in a whirlwind of happy.
