It's Been Too Long!!

Hey Ya'll,

Well, first of all, I would like to apologize for not posting in a while.  I have been painting, researching, crocheting, running around town doing errands, etc, etc, etc.!!!  But I know that that is not a good excuse!  We are coming down to the wire, on when we will need to vacate our home. :(  We are expecting to have to be out of the house by the end of the year.

So far, we have not purchased an RV to move into, and with our now ruined credit, we cannot rent either.  So we have only a few weeks to find an RV that is in decent, livable condition, that we can afford until we can save up our money to purchase a new (hopefully) "custom made" RV!!  But that won't be for at least a year from now.

So we need to find a decent RV to live in for at least a year, and we need it in a VERY short period of time!!  To say that I am a bit stressed out is an understatement!!  Walt keeps telling me not to worry....that things will work out, and yet we keep letting perfectly good RV's go by without purchasing them, because it isn't what he wants, or too much money, or.....WHATEVER!!!  So of course I am stressed out!  I am concerned that because he is waiting for the perfect interim RV, that we will end up in a dump for a year or more just to have something to live in at the last minute!!!  And, did I mention that we still have to finish cleaning out the garage of 20 yrs worth of clutter??  We still haven't started to box up the house!!!!!!  Like I said, am I stressed or what???

Anyhoo, like I said earlier, I have started working on my next two paintings.  So here is the result of the first day of painting on each of them!  Please don't judge them too soon, I know that the sky in the Seascape is messed up, but clouds will cover most of the area that isn't too pleasing to the eye right now, thank God!  LOL  So, here are the two paintings, and until next time......

Aloha My Friends!  :)

This first painting is Walt's.  I have since painted on it again, and have lightened up the sky much more, since the photo shows the sky to be almost white in color!

And here is my first attempt at copying a one of my favorite Painters (Christian Lassen).  Like I said, it is definitely a work in progress!!  If nothing else, I can always paint over it and start again!!!  LOL

I'm glad you're back - I've missed you! Thank you for sharing your talent with us! They're looking good - can't wait to see the finished project!

Debi said...

Thanks Lisa! Now remember, this is only after one painting sessions on each! I still have a lot of sessions to go!!

LOVE the purple - what a beautiful painting!

Good luck on the RV search. Hope it goes well. :)

Thanks Cara! I hope it turns out as well as I hoped it would when we chose it!

Good to hear from you! I know you will find the perfect RV for BOTH of you. There is still lots of time and I bet people are pretty motivated to get out of those things right now between the economy and the season.

As far as packing goes, make a small goal like to pack five boxes a day and start sorting things now. You can do it! It may seem overwelming, but it will also be liberating to get out from under all that extra stuff you've been storing all these years!

Love the paintings. You're very talented!


It is amazing how thing work out sometimes, and I am sure you will find the right RV. Keep painting they are beautful.

Sorry I haven't commented much lately. Love your paintings. I can't seem to get back into doing it again. But maybe as the winter comes. Hope you find some living quarters soon. All WILL work out.

And just look at that ticker number-54 pounds. Yeah Deb!

Debi said...

Amanda, yes! You were right, by waiting a bit longer, we found the almost perfect RV for a great price!!

Christine, and yes, you were also right!! And thanks about the paintings, I will definitely continue to paint, whether or not they turn out well!! Practice makes perfect!

Sandy, I hear you on not commenting much lately! That goes for me too! Hopefully, after the first of the year, my life will settle down and I can get back into this, by commenting on blogs as well as posting on mine! As for the ticker, it is off a bit. I have gained back about 5 lbs since my unfill!! I am definitely looking forward to my next Fill in early December.
