It's hard to believe, but my baby girl is 3! We spent the weekend celebrating her birthday, finishing with going to Sea World yesterday. We had a great time, but I'm keeping her home from Kindy today because she's not feeling well, and she seems to have a temperature. It was a big weekend and we're all feeling pretty tired.
On Saturday (the 15th) our Monthly Painters Challenge artworks were revealed for the month of September. The theme was "Dislike". It was a hard one because we all tend to paint things that make us feel good, or things that we like, so it took some thinking. Anyway - I ended up taking the obvious road and painting something that I dislike eating, and that's tomatoes! While I don't mind having them cooked in a soup, tomato sauce or on pasta or a pizza....I can't stand raw tomatoes in salads or sandwiches! I thought it might be something that I would grow out of, but I never have. I just can't stand the taste of them - even though I think they look nice. So here's my MPC piece for Sept:
|"You say tomato? I say no thanks"|
It's 5"x5" on a stretched canvas (the size of my mini fairy paintings) - so I've decided to offer it at the same set price of $30. You can buy the original HERE on eBay.
Today I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed - I've got a commissioned painting to finish before tomorrow. Deadlines for other paintings looming. An unwell baby. A house still decorated in "My Little Pony" style party decorations, and I'm quite tired from the weekend and being up every 4 hrs through the night giving Miss 3 panadol. After they start sleeping through the night, you forget how hard it is to be up at all hours!
Anyway - I guess I'll just take it one thing at at time today.
One thing I am excited about is I get to choose next month's painters challenge (secret) topic!
Hope you all had a good weekend.
