New Valentine's Painting

"Love Letters"

It's been a while...but here's my new painting for Valentine's. This painting is somewhat of a self-portrait, only in the vintage 40s era. My necklace and pearl bracelet from my boyfriend are present in the painting along with my cuddly feline, snickers, who is keeping me company. I won't be able to spend Valentine's Day with my Valentine this year. But we will be sending letters to each other. Can't wait to visit him in March.
This painting is up on Ebay now!

It's Been a While...

Us at his Going-Away party.
It's been a while since I've painted. I was busy with the holidays and family. And spending a lot time with my boyfriend, Zack, before he left for Basic Training in Texas for two months. And then after that he will be going to Mississippi for his other training for 7 months. A total of 9 months. He is in the Air National Guard. He had to leave a week earlier than he originally that was a little shocking. He left Wednesday (Jan. 19) morning...and it just so happened it was my first day of classes of the spring semester from 9am to 9pm. Very stressful day. It was very hard seeing him go. I'm already missing him so's hard not being able to even talk to him on the phone. I feel bad for his family and his younger brothers and sisters. I hope they don't have too hard of a time. Hopefully we will get to write letters soon. I will get to see him for his graduation from Basic in 2 months. His parents were nice enough to invite me down with them. They are very kind and supportive. I just have to keep myself distracted and keep telling myself that 2 months will go by quickly.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday. I know I did even though it ended on a little of a sad note. And hopefully I can get some paintings going again.
