I'm Still Here!
A few folks have written wondering about my disappearance.
Thank you, everyone, for worrying about me.
I’m not giving up the blog.
I have just had a temporary career (perhaps ‘hobby’ is a better word) switch.
As I have shared with you before, I’ve been painting watercolor pet portraits for a year or so. And I sort of over-committed this Christmastime.
I just couldn’t bear to say no to anyone who was looking to give a gift of a portrait of a beloved pet.
So I said yes to everyone. Absolutely everyone.
And so I’ve been painting. And painting. And painting. Every single day.
Poor Theo and Henry and the cats are bored and have already alerted the SPCA of their horrid neglect. My husband has also called on whatever protection society cares for ignored spouses.
But I am just about finished. And considering there’s only a bit more than a week before Christmas, it’s a good thing I am about done.
I will write again after the holidays. I haven’t abandoned you at the side of the road with my family. Just sidelined for a few weeks.
I can prove my alibi:
Here’s just some of the portraits I have done. These are just from the past two weeks!
I have even done a HUMAN!
This is Nonna Maria, who is 108 years old. (and I did her twice, since the person who commissioned her wanted her portrait for two gifts.)
So forgive me, as I hope my family will eventually forgive me.
I’ll be back!!!
