Rainy Day Goodness, (Etsy Shop open!)

I am sitting at my desk looking out the window at the rain and I am filled to the brim.  I have found my niche, just sitting her at my desk looking at the rain and knowing I have so much to do, all of which is such fun stuff!

Aside from traveling through 8 states on a recent 12 day road trip with one of my brothers and one of my sisters, I have been busy learning how to resize pictures for internet, how to use my fancy new large format printer, an Epson R3000 and my new scanner, an Epson Perfection V600 Photo. (fanfare, excitement, woot,woot, Yippee!),

 ordering fancy fine art quality printer paper AND getting my Etsy shop started.  And painting.
Here's two new ones from this week.

"Girl with a veil"

This one was inspired by the ephemera my daughter brought me from Dubai and Ethiopia on her recent trip.  That and the fact that I LOVE ethnic costumes and cover-ups.  I think I'll be doing a series of scarved and hatted girls.

"Girl with Closed Eyes"

Yep, it's there.  15 originals posted AND I am just starting to post prints too.  Head on over to take a peek:  There I am at
If you see something you like and want it in a print, let me know.  I am slowly getting prints posted. Much more reasonably priced and the colors are exquisite.  (Someday when I am rich and famous, my originals will be worth a million, so stock up on those too for investment purposes.  (smiley face)
