New Paintings

What is a better way to spend your Saturday than studying for a test? I'd say almost any other way, so that is why I am taking a nice little break to share some of the paintings I've finished lately.
They are all about the same size, around the 15" x 12" range and done in watercolor.

Good Student=Terrible Blogger

So yes, I know I've been a little absent, but school has taken over my life (help!). I've been spending a lot of my time painting, working, reading art history, writing papers, etc... so I thought I would share a picture of my studio with you. It is fairly empty because I don't really trust leaving a lot of finished work there, but here it is in all of it's glory.

I have still been able to do some little craft projects here and there, and I've been cooking a lot lately as well. Nate has also been cooking a bit, and he made me this wonderful birthday dinner:

And look, I'm knitting!! This is a custom order from a friend of mine for a hat and mitten set. The hat is almost done, and I'm considering writing a pattern for it to sell in my etsy shop...And last but not least, some yarn for all of the fiber junkies. It is about 200yds of heavy worsted weight merino yarn. I think this one is going to make a really nice neckwarmer- it is so soft and warm!I've also got some finished paintings, but I was too lazy to edit them right now, maybe tomorrow?

Is the Weekend Here Yet?

I've been having a pretty hectic week so far, and I'll be glad for this weekend to arrive. Nate and I are going to see Verona Grove tomorrow night, they have been friends of ours for a while now, and they are moving up in the world, and will hopefully be on MTV one of these days. Also, Johnny and Tabitha are coming up for a visit on Saturday, which we are excited about. Lastly, on Sunday the Packers play the Bears, which should be fun because all of the neighbors in our apartment are Bears fans, and we may have some of them over to watch the game in all of it's big screen HD glory.
Crafting is going pretty slowly this week, but I do have a skein of yarn to show you. This is some of my newly dyed merino yarn , and I've got two skeins of it. I think I will be keeping this one for myself seeing as it is so soft and squishy. I've also been starting a new(ish) series of paintings of the interiors of empty houses. I think I may transfer this series to oils though in effort to get more done. This is the first of the series, but it is only halfway done. I think this will be a good series for oils, I'm looking forward to working in the studio this weekend, hopefully I'll have some more finished paintings to show you soon.
