The wishing tree..

Hello Bandits. It's been a busy week. My MIL is doing so much better the physical therapist is supposed to come this week so she can start therapy on her hip. She is so anxious to get moving again. She's doing pretty well with her walker though.

I didn't get to paint as much as I would have liked this weekend. I had a bridal shower for my good friend dyana yesterday. She got so many beautiful gifts. It was a really nice time. Matt was out for the weekend so we had to run him back to Staten Island this morning and then we ran to Cost co. I bought Joe an Ipod touch as an early Christmas gift. By the time we got back it was about 2:30. I did get a few hours in and finished this painting called "The wishing tree"

I wasn't thrilled with it at first but it's grown on me. Sometimes I have to walk away from a painting for a while when its finished and I'm not sure about it. I think it's that I stare at if for so long I confuse myself LOL.
It's now listed in the shop I working on some tiny wood dolls too. I hope to get some finished this week but we'll see what the week brings before I make any promises.

I'm off to finish watching Notorious with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. Check it out!
