Ask and You Shall Receive!

So, last time I posted (it seems like forever ago) I complained about my working and familial schedule. Lo and behold, the schedule is changing! My husband's working hours are going to shift, and this should restore the working schedule that I had about a year and a half ago. It worked out really well then; let's hope it works out really well when the new hours start this weekend.

The last week has *not* been as productive as I would have liked. The painting above has more layers on the flesh areas, excluding hands and face, and I started the painting below. I've made a new goal to get at least 3 paintings totally finished by the 30th. Will someone here please hold me to that? ;-)

Sometimes, I wish I could leave a painting in this stage, white background and all. Though, she could use having the object she's seated on put in so she doesn't appear to float. Which reminds me, I watched a program on PBS last night about levitation. It was fairly interesting, much better than the infomercials that were on as I was finishing up my work at 2:30 am.
