Another painting

Greetings from chilly Ohio. Much of the snow has melted leaving ice and mud. I went on a short trip to the local greenhouse yesterday. I love to smell the musty dirt and feel the humidity. The ladies that work there are all nice too. I didn't do any painting there. I didn't have much time but I did pull this 5 by 7 inch painting together. If you look close you will see torn music script, I get vintage music pages off ebay. The music is usually already falling apart and yellowed so I don't feel guilty tearing pieces off to put in a painting now and again.

I also got an order for a fun raiser. I will be making custom pieces of jewelry from photos sent as jpgs. Not real artistic but it will help pay my way when I hit the road. Something I can do by internet that doesn't take up to much space in Serenity.

Chasing Flowers Summer Tour

  I'm excited to finally quit whining about everyone taking control of my life. Things have become sane once again. I've started to concentrate and keep to my plans to go on the road and support myself. I am going to go slow and steady and keep getting rid of stuff.
  I'm going on a limited 2014 tour (sounds big and important huh?) I call "Chasing Flowers". Serenity will be just perfect to spend a few days here and there in while I paint on location. I sort of stole part of the name from a school friend's blog, Nicki' Chasing Pirates 
  Not a single flower to be found here in Ohio, I think a trip to a local greenhouse is in order tomorrow to set up to paint some of their flowers.
