It's been a while!

Talk about busy...! Between the stuff going on the last month and a half, and not being able to find any Dull Cote at the store, I did not get anything much done in that time. I am back in the swing of things now though! Finally finishing up that Rasam that has been fighting with me for months. The Babaji (pictured) I finished is now for sale, and I have a Valda, Al Sayyid, and Pixie all in progress that are commissions. Babaji is a very neat horse, and I learned a lot painting him. In retrospect I wish Id done him solid Buckskin, but I think he turned out pretty neat. Now that I have Buckskin/Dun and Bay down pat, I am hoping to polish off the skills I need to paint Chestnuts.

Now on a more personal note... If anyone remembers that house we looked at this summer and tried to buy, we found out it has gone back up for sale, and the price has come down again. I am not sure if it will still be up for sale when we finally sell this one. It would be great to have 6 bedrooms to work with, but that house needs so much work. We will see. It is pretty neat to watch how God's plans unfold. We finally made the decision to start working on the preparations to adopt a little boy from Ethiopia in the near future. This means a lot of my sales pieces from now on go to the adoption fund. We are really eager to get this going, but trying to be patient as we really need to move to a larger place first.
