Tuesday and the kids go back to school…Yippee for Art Mom’s everywhere!

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for my day…and a little more.
“To me it seems basic to the getting rid of fear to know that our trials,
of whatever nature, are not motiveless.
In our present stage of development we could hardly do without them.
So often looking . . . ugly . . . they are in reality the branches by we which we catch on and climb.
They are not obstacles to happiness. . . . Every call of duty has its place in this ideal;
every irksome job,
every wearisome responsibility.
The fact that we are not always aware of it
in no way annuls the other fact that it is so. . . .”
~Basil King
Today the boys go back to school and I have some quite time to finish the new canvas…I am going to post a picture of it later today when the sun gets higher and the light better for taking pictures. A new work in progress and I am happy that things are moving with the muse again. Yippee for school, is all I can say.
I did get some good work done yesterday, between the snacks, and every kid in the hood wanting to ring the doorbell and play with the boys…so I am really looking forward to a free to paint day.
I hope all is well in your world, and that the universe is a wonderful place for you to dwell in today.
I plan to start another new painting, with no planning at all…I don’t even know what I will be doing at all… no clue yet, but because I am working with limited paint colours (still hoping for a sale so I can re-invest in supplies) it should be fun none the less. I can’t let lack of funds stop my progress as the days and weeks before the show are still passing by. It’ll just have to be an opportunity instead of an obstacle. Challenge is good for the creative soul…I hope. *grins*
Oh yeah, you might have noticed the new quote pictures I have been doing, they are from my collection of vintage ephemera and also the source for the new fairy’s! I am thinking about putting a collection of these images together for sale on CD, would anyone be interested in buying them though?
That’s the question of the day…would any of my artist friends out there have a need/want for something like that? I am always looking for images to use in my work (to use in my mixed media paintings, like fairy world, and for models for my paintings), at this point I have a huge gathered collection of images for my own use…and I thought maybe some of you might like that too…as far as cost…I was thinking like maybe $10.00 + shipping, each for a collection of say 150 images all jpeg and high resolution…and royalty free. So, some feedback on that would be great…before I embark on another project that is.
Have a good one all, come back later for the pictures of the new Fairy World work in progress…it’s a full moon scene…and let me know what you think.

    Interesting thought on the CD of images. I typically don’t use material like that, but someone might find it useful. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Thanks LB…I have not done the CD yet, just throwing it out there to see if there is any interest…I may be the only one who uses this type of thing in painting (yeah, I doubt it)…I like the posed pictures for painting models and drawing muses when I am working figurativly, and I love turning them into winged creatures of imagination. Thanks for the encouragement though!
