16x20" oil on canvas
The pup commission is completed. Still working on the others but hope to post them both by early next week.
I'm still a tad rattled from yesterday's shake up. Um...WOW! I'd just sat down to the computer and began typing when the desk started shaking. The pull chains on the lamp were swaying from side to side so I looked underneath to see which one of the pups had decided to scratch himself while leaning against the desk. To my great surprise and subsequent dismay, they were both on the other side of the room. Hmmm. At that moment the phone rang. Tim was on the other end asking me if I was having an earthquake. Sick feeling. Hands shaking. Heart thumping. It didn't last long but I have never, in my somewhat lengthy life, felt anything like it before and hope to never feel anything like it again.
He had just been calling from work to tell me about his lunch with an old friend when he felt the building move and saw the blinds swaying. Freaked us both out. I haven't been the same since. I was going to write some thoughts I had about doubt with regard to artwork. I think I'll save that for another time. Right now, I'm trying not to wilt every time a big truck rumbles by.
