    • Mary says:

      Thanks! Almost, I have one more coming out but I think I’ll wait a couple of days and start work on my lastest paintings. Are you getting any painting done these days?

      • i’m working on a line of black and white images, very graphic in the mola style, for submission for a printing opportunity on specialty papers. ti’s been a fun project, painting strong sure radiating lines around the subject (3 were shown in the leibster post first image)…my only problem is that painting sometimes tires me.. does it make you tired, that strong focus of holding the eye in one spot? pullling those lines requires keen eyesight and firm muscle control, and i am always spent after four or five hours of that! i love it but it’s tiring..
