Batteries Required (booooo!) and a Sweet Suprise!

Well, the kid-goblins did it again. My camera only has one battery. No one seems to know how this possibly could have happened. Hmmmm, its a mystery alright ; I have two WIP's that are nearly finished, and I got a great treat in the mail too.

I went outside to take Annalise to school, and yippee, a package, that says Lisa Kaus Art Studios *happy dance* I can't take a picture of it *sniffle* but here is the one that I purchased:

The picture doesn't do it justice, and she sent me the cutest little card, and the whole thing was wrapped so nicely, it felt like Christmas! She is a helluv an artist, I love this piece :D :D

Anyway, my daughter has 8 days of school left. She only goes 3 days a week, and those 2 hours are my working time, as my other kids are in school too. Back to working nights again, I guess. I don't mind working at night, because it is very peaceful, but at the same time, after giving to everyone in my family all day, sometimes I'm too tired to be creative. That's one of the only downsides about art, you can't just magically turn it on at will. When I used to do portraits, I could normally knock out a basic outline in under an hour, but there were times when I just couldn't draw to save my life. I think it shows in your work too, if you're tired or bored, so its difficult to be on top form at night.

Ever keep working, long past when you know you should have stopped, and end up just trying to put little fixes on your work, or just work on this one little area, and end up practically ruining it? I hate when that happens ;)

Well, I'm off to try to read some blogs before I have to go get the boys. Anyone visiting, have a great day!
