|Prince Charming / Oil w-palette knife / 6X6 Sold|
This painting is a few years old, and was done after I attended a palette knife workshop taught by California artist Leslie Saeta.

We're still packing. The art supplies are in boxes, but I don't want to tape the boxes closed yet.
We are meeting with a contractor today to talk about making some minor upgrades in the new house. We are downsizing by more than 1000 square feet. Part of me is getting nervous because I think we are downsizing too much, but my husband disagrees.
For example, I doubt that our couch will fit in the tiny living room at the new place. My husband says we'll just buy a new couch. I like that solution!
There is no studio space. Tim says we'll build something in the backyard. Okay.
Our "stuff" has been in storage so long, I can't even remember what we have. What does that tell us, Tim asks. I can't argue with him.
It tells us that we have too much stuff.
We have decided to embrace a more minimalist lifestyle (except for art supplies, of course), and to concentrate on appreciating more meaningful stuff instead of great quantities of stuff.
After we move, I'll post pics of our old house (I miss you) and our new house.
I think I'm looking forward to this adventure.
I'll let you know.
