A bit of a holiday – Day 301

My husband and I have been off work this week and we went away for a few days to Niagara Falls. We had a great time and did some much-needed shopping. As nice as it is to get away, it’s even nicer to get back home. We returned yesterday to an absolutely gorgeous day – sunny and 22C – so we spent the afternoon and evening outdoors trying to soak it all up.

I did a few little sketches on my iPad while we were gone although there wasn’t anything too exciting in the hotel room to draw. It was nice to get back to my palette knife paintings today. I finished off the little landscape and did a new one of an outdoor lantern and some climbing roses. I will take a look at it tomorrow and decide if it’s done or not. I also got the edges painted on a few more boards so they’re ready to go.

I want to get a few more of the palette knife paintings finished for the Extravaganza Gift Show which is a week tomorrow at the Victoria Park Armoury in Lindsay. I’ve been working on the layout for my booth and starting to pull together my inventory list and the signage I need. I’ve got new business cards coming and some 8×10 prints on fine art paper that are matted to 11×14. I’m hoping for a very successful day!
