I am so happy today!!! I have finished a painting that I have been working on for months! It is why I am behind on everything else in my life! It is one of the most difficult paintings I have done. The reason for this is, it is not really a house. When I started my blog, I wrote that I received a commission from a couple who wanted me to do a Houscape of their miniature horses abode and back yard. It got put put on hold for a couple months and then everything fell into place and I started the job. Normally even though I love a challenge I would have said no. This is not what I do. This is a landscape and I don't crave doing landscapes. I truly love to paint houses. But they have been good patrons, they have commissioned 2 other paintings and said I could take as long as I need to. That means I can do other jobs that come in so I decided to accept. Well, I finished the horses houses very quickly and then I was faced with all of the plants and flowers. I am such a detail person that it took months which was not my plan but the painting comes out of me the way it needs to and I am just along for the ride. Some days it flowed and some days it was a pain in my tush! I have about 5 minutes to rejoice and now I have to do the 3 projects that are sitting on my desk waiting to be started. Momentary bliss!
