This past weekend, I was incredibly surprised to find out that my painting "Ophelia Rising" had received a Daily Deviation!
I would like to thank everyone who took the time to view my work, and special thanks those who added me to your watch list. I wanted to thank all of you individually, but there was just too many of you and too little time, so to one and all, THANK YOU!
I actually finished three paintings since the holiday, including "Beauty and the Beast" and "Make-Shift Angel X: Femininity," but I'm saving the third one for a less full week!
Just an FYI, my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/ardenellenni…
will be in vacation mode Christmas week (21st-28th--the 21st is a Saturday and will be my last clear shot at the post office), so be sure to order any gifts before that so that they have plenty of time to arrive for the holiday. You can of course order from my CafePress shop any old time! www.cafepress.com/ardenellenni…
As for me, I'm enjoying just having pure painting time and tending to end of the year chores, both online and off. Christmas shopping has thankfully been done for a few months. I keep an eye out for gifts throughout the year, in part because my husband has a late November birthday, and also because shopping for our two families takes some thought! Indeed, I look forward to Christmas not just because I genuinely love giving things, but because it means I can finally rescue my art storage closet from the pile of gifts that have accumulated/been hidden throughout the year!
May you all be well and wonderful!
