I sold this painting:
It's been hanging at the clinic for a couple of years.
I almost took it down a few weeks ago and then a woman with two elderly Goldens bought it Saturday!
and the "Smell the Flowers" painting?
Well, it was bought by a friend who now has commissioned me to do small paintings of her dogs.
Yep, good news.
Tammy bought my Doxie painting for a friend and I surprised her with a little illustrated painting of Zeke
because I ADORE Tammy and she loved it.
That made me happy, so that was Good News too.
Other Good news, my water heater that was leaking all over my basement last Sunday has stopped.
Apparently opening up the Pressure Release Valve a few times and then tapping it with a screwdriver 10 times worked.
Hmm. That might be it for the Good stuff but still that's what I'm focusing on!
OK, Bad News:
My little Twinkle had a small seizure this week.
It's the first as far as I'm aware of and I'm keeping a close eye on her.
I thought she was...6?
But when I got to work and looked up her age, she's 9.
So this mental denial on my part made me look up all my pets ages
and apparently 3/4ths of them are 9 or older.
Not that age really matters or anything but, well...you know.
Kinda tugged on my heart a little bit.
Other Bad News, I haven't been called for that space yet
and maybe that's not bad because Lily and I stopped in last Sunday
and we noticed that the vendors with the nice cards is gone and that the wall of paintings has changed too
and all the photography is marked half-priced
and the new vendors are all collectibles and antiques
and....well, I guess I'm not disappointed at not being called.
Oh, and the last of the Bad News.
One of my part-time workers had given notice and her last day is next Saturday.
My other part-timer started her 6 week surgical medical leave this weekend,
so that leaves just me and my one part-time girl.
Good News though. She's a hard worker and I can count on her.
Bad News, for all of March, neither her or I get a full day off.
I might get some half days but the fact remains that I won't have a complete day away.
So....You might not hear from me much in March.
But the Good News is....
I'll still be painting and I'm working on a project that I'm excited about and will reveal when I'm done!
Yep. Good News.
