Hi Everyone!
Hope you're well!
I want to thank you for your amazing comments about me and the gym! I am blessed with the friends I have made here in blog land! All of you mean so much to me! Thank you!!!

I have to let you know, so far, I have lost 8 pounds! Only xxxx to go! LOL! Actually, I'm not counting. I was surprised when I got on the scale and very happy too!

It's funny how the most "simplest" of movement can hurt and make you sweat! Like lifting your leg straight out to the side! I really hate doing that one! LOL!

I finished a commission piece that is going to Singapore! This girl makes and sells beautiful dolls. She wanted an aceo (2.5" x 3.5") to hang in one of the doll rooms, she has set up. I was asked to make a baby crow, in a sailor outfit, holding his doll (doll with eyes and collar and buttons), spring/summer time, flowers and have old toy blocks too. Remember, the painting is 2.5"x 3.5".
I did it! I didn't think I was going to, but I did!

I have been working on another painting, which I just finished, called "The Gate Keeper". It's very dramatic. (10" x 20") He might be my new banner!
One more special thing. I want to thank Jan, for my birthday gifts!! Truly love everything!!!
Big Hugs!

  2. YAY!!! Congrats on the 8lbs that is fantastic. I am loving your new look with your crows. This Gate Keeper is I think one of your bests. The commission is just too cute and perfect for where it is going. Life is good.

  3. congratulations on everything! love your creations:)

  4. You totally cracked the commission, and the Gatekeeper is awesome :D XXX

  5. Such a fierce crow on "The Gatekeeper" -- love it! Those splashes of red are so beautifully dramatic against the black and greys too.

  6. Haha...I know exactly what you mean about those exercises that involve lifting your leg out to the side...I did some of those last week...and my hip is still hurting today! lol

    Oh Sweetie...I LOVE these gorgeous paintings!!
    Yes, "Gatekeeper" is my personal favourite intimidating...I wouldn't DARE cross him!! lol

    All My Love & Hugs xoxoxo

  8. Hey girly girl, I am so very proud of you and happy for you as well. It's a huge deal to be doing what you are doing for yourself. Keep on, keeping on. Love the sailor suited sweetie and I adore the gatekeeper. He/She looks to be quite a well equiped guardian.

  9. 8 lbs.!?! That's awesome, Stacy. I think I need to run to the scale tonight and see where I am. I haven't stepped on it for a while...

    I LOVE "The Gate Keeper". He looks regal and knowing... and that wicked grin on his face is just glorious.

  10. Thanks for stopping by the other day. Congratulations on your weightloss journey. Awesome crows

  11. The custom piece is so cute. I love that it is for someone who sells dolls. Perfect! The Gate Keeper is so handsome.

    Awesome job with the weight loss! I do think scales are a woman's greatest enemy. How you feel and your clothes getting looser will tell you your progress. :)

  12. I absolutely LOVE the Gate Keeper.

  13. Awe, the baby crow with the doll is soooooo sweet! Gate Keeper is spectacular!!! Looks wonderful on your banner! 8 pounds, that's fantastic!!! You rock, my friend! HUGS!

  14. great gifts from Jan. I love both your crows but that larger one is such a beauty. congrats on the weight loss.

  15. Such wonderful art piece for the commision. Congratulations!!! And your gatekeeper is really lovely. And so are you - keep on training!! Bless you dear friend. Big hugs :-)

  16. The commission is darling! The Gate Keeper is a fine fellow too! :) So glad to hear you are happy with your gym progress. . . I think just doing a range of movement is important for so much, especially in this day and age when we are more sedentary than ever. I just heard a podcast about how kids today compared to kids from the 80's and 70's have a significant amount of less hand strength because they aren't outside doing what kids used to do, exploring, playing physically, using their whole bodies the way they/we once did.

    I began climbing monkey bars again this summer and was embarrassed at first watching little 7 and 8 kids swing on them like they defy gravity when I could barely get across them but, in just a few months, I am swinging like crazy too. lol Just a few minutes, a few times a week, and I regained that lost strength and ability. Tree climbing is next. . .

    BIG HUGS!!!

  17. like always your work is fabulous .love the baby sailor .
    gate keeper seems intense and slightly mysterious

  18. Wonderful crows! I especially love the dark one. :) Good luck on losing weight. I'm in the same boat only I hate sweating. :) I'm doing yoga instead.

  19. Woot! Woot! Woot! 8#s and a commission to Singapore! Life is good:)
    I LOVE The Gatekeeper.

  20. Congrats on the weight loss! It's never an easy thing to do. I love the new paintings, especially the Gatekeeper. What a handsome fellow!

  21. Ohh first your new photo is fantastic and you shine from within! Wow and congrats to the lost pounds!! Moving can be so much fun, if you have started out, haha! Your aceo is a great work, sooooo tiny lil details! She will love that! Your gatekeeper is stunning and the white eyes are a bit spooky to me, haha ♥ Conny

  22. What wonderful paintings! The new one is very dramatic indeed and the doll aceo is charming! I'm glad you're doing so well with your workouts.
