Man has it been cold, cold. It was a nippy 16 degrees this morning and the snow that fell day before yesterday stayed powdery and the pipes froze to my studio. Boo. But that does not stop me from painting. I crank up the heat and paint on. I had to haul a couple gallons of water in jugs to wash brushes but I managed.
(for a full tutorial on how I paint my signs click here "click")
I painted some loooove signs.
My favorite is this one with the roses on the black lettering.
A detail shot.
And my husband picked the Sage Green Love sign with heart wreath.

I also had a special request of changing the egg color on my Nest painting. I was happy to oblige for the customer.
She had no blue in her house and prefers a more neutral feel so requested the blue eggs be changed to light brown speckled. No problem.
When not painting away I have been working again on my website. It is slowly coming together but I find a few things I am having trouble adjusting. There are some font sizes that need changing but I am sure it is just a matter of time along with trial and error.
There is a blog feature in the website but I am not familiar with blogging in Wordpress, it may be time to learn. It supposedly would help my rankings for the new website in the search engines so I shall have to learn it. That shall be good for me. learning new things expands the brain cells or creates new ones, I need all the brain cells I can get.
I, for one, am ready for this extreme cold to go away. I am dreaming of warm tropical weather, swaying palm trees, hot sunshine and cold ice tea. But in lieu of that I have drug a steel rack of shelves into the living room to start my seeds for summer. I will be sure to share.
I wish you warm sunshine and soft breezes wherever you may be.
