The post wherein I pose for my art

Not much in the way of art has happened this week. I’ve been caught up in family engagements and the need to meet web design deadlines. I did manage to start one piece of work, but it has sat on my art table all week taunting me with the fact I didn’t have time to do anything with it. It has now reached the point that if I don’t do something with it soon, its chances of ever being finished are going to start dropping – which is not a good thing because I’ve been on such a good roll lately – and I’ve discovered at least two more exhibitions I would like to be part of and I need to produce some art!

One other thing that happened this week led to the title of this post.

I need clothing, but I have more of an inclination to purchase art materials or if I manage to get into a shop that sells clothes, I tend to exit with my hands full of children’s clothes. Yes, I obviously have something wrong with me. So when I recently uploaded two new pieces of artwork to my Red Bubble shop I took the opportunity to buy myself something 😀

And since there is no other female body in this house in which I could model the above piece of clothing, I had to stand in front of the camera and hope the black I was wearing hid the evidence of two children and a distinct lack of interest in exercise. At least it is a touch better than me photographing it on the hanger 😀 You can find this skirt and other Magenta Magic items here 😀

So that’s all I have for this week. We have a long weekend this weekend, so I’m hoping to finish off the webwork and get my teeth back into some decent artwork of my own. It is all happening!

Don’t forget to drop by Paint Party Friday and check out all the fabulous work. Particularly Sojourner’s painting this week, it is a gorgeous piece from a gorgeous person.

Best wishes,
