whew! life is a whirlwind…

February 2, 2009

This weekend, we celebrated Granny J’s 80th birthday with a family meal at the Pirate’s House.  So many times my mural work occupies a private residence, so it’s always great when my family can see one in real life.  Just look at those happy pirates…

It was great fun indeed!

Mom also made her way to Savannah for the weekend, and we had a lovely time scouring wedding magazines and hunting for that perfect “mother-of-the-bride dress”….eeek, some of those ones with the jackets are horrendous!  Glad we started the hunt early.

Well, I better go clear out a spot in the studio for my new epson baby! It’s due to arrive today, and I can’t wait to try it out…oh it will be like Christmas!

Pirates House update…

August 17, 2008

Moving right along over there…and let me just say that the entire crew at the Pirate’s House has been such a pleasure to work with…friendly, helpful, and encouraging…not to mention, they have pirates giving tours throughout the day, so I get to hear all about the wonderful history and ghostly encounters that go on around there…

The pirates are coming along nicely, although I had to stop myself from working any further this day.  Sometimes my brush and brain just don’t work together like they should…it’s times like this that I often do more damage than good to my work…so best to put the brush down and pick it back up another day.  This isn’t uncommon on a canvas this size…I mean, it can kind of gobble you up if your not careful…
