Working in Chaos

I'm working on some new landscapes, but...

our house has been in an uproar since May, with 2 bathrooms being renovated, a complete kitchen re-do, and, now, wall and woodwork painting being done in the main parts of the house. My husband and I were always do-it-yourselfers, but, as he travels more for work and we hit our mid sixties, we've decided to do everything that needed to be done in one fell swoop. Fortunate? Yes. Privacy? No!

This past weekend, we did tackle one project - refurbishing our kitchen table. It had a dark green pedestal and the chairs were falling apart, so we repainted the pedestal and bought new chairs - voila!

It's a bit disconcerting to work on artwork with so much commotion in the house, but I'm trying to get a few pieces done before the October show and our Arts Collaborative's exhibit on the same weekend!
I'm really not worrying about selling work so much as having a nice presentation.

Hope your week is going well!

Love, love, love your table and chairs! When can I pop in for a culpa???
You must be so PLEASED with it all!

that should say cuppa but in my rush to post I didn't catch that spell check changed it for me. Isn't technology grand?
Let's see, culpa ... doesn't that mean fault or blame??? Neither of us needs that now, do we?
