I spent a month with her and her hubby recently, and they made me feel like family....oh wait, I am family! Well they went above and beyond in my case. They made me feel very welcome and now that I'm back home, I miss them a lot. We still do the phone thing, but it's not quite the same as being able to trade thoughts as they occur to you.
I finally met all the ladies who take classes with Sharon, my sister, and it was great to put personalities with the pics she posts on her blog. I might still get a couple of names mixed up, but I know them by their actions and words more now. Several of them found out that I painted a little and actually tossed me some orders. I painted frantically, 12 to 15 hours a day and still left a month later, unable to fill them all. I am now working on them at home, hoping to complete them in October before the snow starts here in the mountains.
I will take the finished work to a pre-determined spot, meet my sister and she will carry them back to her ladies in time for the holidays...what a plan! I will get it done though. I am nothing if not determined when I decide to do something. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Sharing it with you has made me see it more differently than before when it was for my eyes only. I now feel almost obligated to get it done and framed. It seems unfair to leave it as is for much longer. I am going to paint for another month or so, and then I need to make a couple of things for Christmas, and I need to take some more classes at college...start a new job...maybe I can get it done by 2015? We'll see....sigh....we'll just have to wait and see.
