So out in the world, in Austin, Texas, more specifically - there is an artist painting wonderful little paintings of Airstreams and other travel trailers. Who knew? I didn't, but fortunately she left a comment on my site. I'm glad that she stopped by.
Her name is Stephanie Nance and you can see her work here. If you enter her site, click on Portfolio and follow that to the link for Trailer Paintings. (She also has some delightful botanical paintings as well). They're all fun.
I love her Mission and Philosophy (as stated on her curriculum vitae):
To make art that is attainable by everybody. I believe every human deserves to have art in their life on a daily basis and not be blocked by velvet topes to get it.
So tonight I got together my pastels, the gorgeous oil pastels (in the all of those incredible colors), and my drawing pencils, and my watercolors - and I put them in the Airstream, in a compartment underneath the 'couch'. I'm thinking (aka hoping) that I'll find more time to play with these things when my life simplifies just a bit.
I am hoping that my life simplifies. Just a bit.
Perhaps that's being optimistic, maybe even overly optimistic - but that's okay.
Tomorrow I meet again with my architherapist. I now have ~20 boxes in my storage unit, with many more to go. I have to start thinking about taking out (cutting down, DESTROYING) the chaste tree and butterfly bush (yes, the butterfly bush that is almost 20' tall). I need to do this soon. I hate doing this. I should be able to move the crepe myrtle, the Silver Moon, the Climbing Cecile Brunner, and the confederate jasmine successfully.
But for now, there's a grant due in less than a week.
