Carla's Funky Art

Happy Friday

Painting, Runningcarla

Yay, we all made it through another week!  I was able to finish up my "Fish" show paintings that I will share with you next week.  I did several other paintings done as well. It has been a struggle lately to get new work completed and still manage to work my part-time job.  I typically only have a day or two to paint every week, and to be honest, I am nervous for the summer shows!

 I am still on track for beating Scott with the fitbit this week (see previous blog post), and I even earned my 20,000 steps in a day badge! Yay!

daisies

Two of my favorite things....daisies and running shoes.  So far so good with my leg, I ran a few more times and no problems!!!

Are you guys sitting down?  You won't believe what I am about to tell you!!!!

I painted a bubble tree this week.  I don't paint them very often....but they are my biggest seller and I feel like I should have them for the Friday Harbor and San Juan Island Art Festivals this summer!  Why don't I paint them very often you ask?  Well, for two reasons.... one, they take me forever, and second, I have painted a ton of them and they don't seem as special anymore.  So on that note, I am making the original bubble tree more of a rarity, and selling prints.

bubble-tree-flip-flopsYes, that is me in my pajamas!  Sometimes I am way more motivated if I just grab a cup of coffee and head right up to the studio.  I have this bad habit of getting side tracked and distracted!  I will start cleaning the house, then hang out on Instagram and before I know it, it is 2:00 p.m.

Today is cleaning the house day and getting ready for my mixed media class tomorrow!  YAY!!!   I am so excited to meet everyone and I know we are going to have a wonderful time!  Stay tuned for some photos next week!  We will hopefully getting two paintings a piece done tomorrow!
