Been painting here and there, and posting some new items on my Etsy site. Hoping to generate some new custom work, because I am in a funk of inspiration.

I just feel like I am pulling every painting out of me with pair of tweezers, which is tedious and painful.

Here are some things I did yesterday.

6" x 9"

Meditating Mama.
4" x 6"

Yesterday, I also made some sculpty sculptures with my daughter. A one inch sushi, a little calavera and a mizuko jizo. We baked them and eh, voila, instant window sill additions.

I painted until 1a, then woke up and began painting again until I had to leave the house, then came home and finished the paintings I had sitting there. In total, from Tuesday until this morning, I painted eight illustrations. Some were watercolors I had to do over again until they were what I wanted, but here is a sampling:
