Oh I need to start some new projects but am waiting for some oomph to get me going. I too feel guilty just reading but it still doesn't get me off my duff to paint.LOL
I like watching the painting progress too. Maybe this will inspire me. :)
I can't wait to see your painting of this lovely photo. She will love it.

Fifi, I can' do watercolor. it's always just dry up on me in 2 seconds before i can react. i like oil better, allowing me time to fix my mistakes and to change my mind.

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

It's so cool to see one of your paintings on its "journey." Love to see the process.

I need to get more organized this year. I have no idea how I will accomplish this. Fairies? Minions? ;-) I also need to go on a vacation. Stat!

And that photo of Fifi l'enfant in the previous post...too cute!

Callie Grayson said...

Nice, I wish I could find some time to get started on a new project. It's almost painful for me when I can't make art...anyway, I love seeing your work in progress--it's fantastic. I hope you had a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year!

THIS is the year I get it all together- finish my Master's in French, which I abandoned 6 years ago, return to fdrance for a rpolonged visit, road trip to Florida with my girls, and get in shape. Your paintings inspire me. And I so love visiting Giverny - I love the yellow dining room and also the green paint of trim, benches, etc.

Fifi Flowers said...

Wow... a masters in French! Fabulous goals you have! I'm happy to inspire you! Glad you liked my Giverny trip!
