My little fella has started stringing together a solid 4 hours of sleep at night. He tends to wake up every 2 hours after that, BUT... oh those 4 hours. Glorious I tell you.
He has also discovered that he can indeed survive without being glued to my body, and thus wailing like a banshee when I put him down is no longer necessary. In fact, there's even some smiling going on... Very good young grasshopper.
So that brings us to my first post-baby watercolor.
Ok, ok so obviously I still have baby on my brain, but what can I say? I'm completely starry eyed (that is, when I'm not bleary eyed) over my little guy. After he was born I was so proud of him I wanted to send out his birth announcements right away, but I had absolutely zero energy. A picture with a post-it note that read "We're tired. This is our baby." seemed like the only realistic option. Tempting as it was, I figured that might not be so well received, so I held out and waited for my inner artist to return.
Lo and behold, I mailed these out last week.
These past few weeks I've been filling wholesale orders (most recently for The Mississippi Gift Company, check 'em out!) and working on my own stockpile of note cards and such, but I just hadn't had the focus it takes to come up with a new painting until here lately. And now that I've got that first one out of the way, I feel like I'm off to the races!
More new works to share soon!
