Cupcakes For A Little One

14" x 18"
on canvas

This painting will hang in the nursery of a sweet little baby girl named Amelia.  The painting began with a simple plan.  Don't they always?  The plan - just three cupcakes on a shelf.  No, huh uhh.  That looked so barren in the background.  From rumination, which tends for me to be sitting around waiting for flashes of insanity, came the idea of wallpaper back there behind those cupcakes!
The wallpaper pattern took me forever, but after that was nailed down it was fun.

The painting framed:
I am loving this frame for the nursery!
I painted the frame, too.

You may have noticed that
I have been missing in action from my blog. 
I have
 two excuses:

First: Lots of Commissions!
Second: This thing, my fitbit.

I got the fitbit for Christmas, but paid it little mind until my birthday, March 11, 2015.  It was then I decided to challenge myself to 10,000 steps per day for 30 days.  And -  I DID IT!
Now, I am addicted to the 10,000 steps routine.  I do not do it every day-but most days I am out there.  So much time out of my day is now spent taking steps.  I have already worn out two pair of shoes!
Things fall by the wayside.  Some important stuff, but mostly what does not get done has not been life altering.
I think having so much fun street walking WILL change my life, though : )
