For the most part, I'm grumpy for reasons that aren't really worth discussing or sharing. Little bits of irritation and crankiness, but nothing serious.
I don't like feeling grumpy. I'd much rather dance and flit about and tend to my flowers ~
I'd much rather be in my studio, happy, happy with not a care in the world ~
....or, listening to music, losing myself in the notes and lows and highs ~
I'd much rather pal around with the birds ~
...or walk a country path ~
But noooooo....I woke up feeling grumpy. Unlike myself. Like something stole my brain ~
You see....my loyal and steadfast computer of 11 years has finally given up the ghost. :-(
Thankfully, my files were retrieved. I had oh so many photos and art files and references wrapped up inside that old, electric box.
But now....I have no computer in my studio. I am playing musical computers with my sons gaming computers. They are much too big and powerful for me. I desperately need my own computer in my studio. I go back and forth between my art desk and my computer and printer almost constantly while I'm working on my art.
It is a worry. It is a bother. However, I AM thankful for my daily goodness and my Everydays. I am trying my best to work around the situation. But, with a very big secret project looming on the horizon for September of 2013, I am going to have to get a new machine.
Due to this rather large glitch in my arty life, I will probably be having several big sales over the course of the next few weeks. Starting with THIS ~
This is truly one of my all time favorite pieces. I had intentions of keeping it myself. It was created for an "Alice in Wonderland" themed show and later went on to place in another show. I even won a bit of money in the second show.
I am offering this piece for half price right now and I am selling it framed. It is a salted watercolor with a bit of mixed media. The image size is 8" x 10" and the frame is 14" x 17". If you are purchasing from inside the U.S. shipping is free. The title is "Mi Corazon por Alicia".
The gallery price was $400.00. My shop price is normally $280. Right now...you can get this piece for $140. I don't know how long I'll keep it listed at this price, as I might have a fit of panic and unlist it at any time!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at gerushiasworld at aol dot com.
So....I am going onward, forward, taking steps to make this a better day. Trying to stay focused. Which, for me, is difficult on even the most delicious and positive days!
Until Next Time:
