I’ve been sort of under the weather these past few days…I got some mysterious insect bite on my arm last week and have been feeling sort of crap ever since…also I have this cold that won’t quite manifest but is shitty enough to make me not want to leave the house.
So…instead of running around like I usually do over the weekend, I stayed put and got my painting on.
I’m pretty excited about this little series that I’ve been working on and just listed them all in the shop
…which is PS, getting a new name…mostly because I don’t want to limit myself anymore to just pink stuff.
The work I finished over the weekend was mostly done on these gessoed hardboard numbers that I’ve sooooo fallen in love with.
They’re ready to hang, so nice and smooth, and the sharp edge means that I can paint them to look like a frame…in any colour.
So, with that, here’s a peek at ‘Loot Bags‘….

Along with these, I also did this pair…
…that has spawned an idea for a while black/white series…stay tuned for that.
And, after a few weeks of working on these canvas guys…

…they got done.
The one on the left is a commission and Mr. Right is for sale in the shop.
It feels real good to be painting again.
I sort of forgot how much I love it.
Clears the brain as it were…much like yoga…sadly, the offshoot of painting has been zero exercise.
Choices, choices… fit non-creative type or fat painter?

    Sorry I got so distracted yesterday by how amazing all of your new paintings are that I had to go right to your etsy shop and take a look 🙂 But I just wanted to say that I LOVE all of them!!! You are so talented Christine, and hopefully soon I can make one of them mine! Have a wonderful week!
