Blog problems !

Wow... I have not been able to connect or write into my blog since early March. It would always freeze on me. I am not sure what was the problem. A lot has happened since then. I will try and post my new paintings later. I am very happy that it is working now. I wonder if anybody else had the same problem ?

It has been a while...

I have been very busy with family members vacationing in Florida and I have enjoyed their company a great deal but my blog , painting , housework and business is suffering a bit because of it..oh la la
I have a lot journal pages and painting started but not finished. I am not sure why I find myself more busy now then when my children were growing up. I used to cook, clean the house , take care of the kids, sow , craft, volunteer at the school, go to all practice/games of baseball and hockey and take care of the books for the company . For some reason I THOUGHT that when my children would be adult,  I would have all this free time to myself to paint and journal.
I am more busy now than ever and I babysit my grand daughter 3 and sometimes 4 days a week.
The last time I wrote in this blog was in early February...
I have to laugh at myself , I am sure I am not alone but sometimes I put a lot of pressure on myself to try and be a super woman. I belong to all these groups in Facebook  ,  ning sites and I have all these on line workshops that I am doing and I am trying to keep up with , I teach clogging 4 nights a week and I have to learn new dances in between....but overhaul I am very happy every time I have a minute to paint or draw, every minutes count and at the end of the week/month I am sometime very surprise at what I have accomplish in a very short time.
If you are reading this , Have a great week !

I did this painting for a challenge they had
and you could only use these colors.
I loved it!

Abstract Painting !

Here is what I am working on these days.
I always loved abstract painting, I used to paint them all the time
and lately I have been thinking how much I missed it.
There is a certain freedom in painting them
but for me also fear....
I find I work better when I do not try to think too much
I have to let go and it is not always easy....
So here is a few pieces I am working on now...

I called this piece Blue Jeans !
It is 12 x 12 canvas
Acrylic paint, ink, interference paint

This one I called Fusion
9 x12 canvas
Acrylic paint, Ink, Interference paint, Glitter
Mica Flakes
