nearly there

finished "nearly there" just a moment ago.
It has been a busy few weeks and I keep telling myself that I am almost there.  Getting back into a good routine after summer always takes a little adjusting to.  I long for it and then when the day arrives, I honestly do not know where to start.   After walking around in circles and half finishing things, I take pleasure in knowing that part of the journey is not arriving but the joy of getting there.  That said, I plod onward, paintbrush in hand.

This house commission is nearly there.  I still have to water color the shrubs to the left, add color to the trees and to the house.  I thought I would share something that is almost finished. With each commission, I start, I give thanks to each of you for keeping me busy and always trying a new route while getting a little lost in my work in the midst of the daily routine of life.  I completed this one today.
It feels good to finish something.

Love the house! Trying to get into a routine too, reverting back to summer habits is easy!

The house looks so inviting and sweet! I've been thinking a lot about the routine, process and the joy of getting there...how wonderful to be able to get lost in your work along the way.
Hope you have a routinely lovely day! XO

Love hearing about the process and the journey, PVE! We thought that now that the boys are back in school we'd have more time but it just doesn't seem so...

So beautiful! The transition to fall is always bittersweet, but I welcome the cooler weather and the adventures that come with it. I know you will feel similarly inspired!

Such a cute house. They will cherish this painting forever.

Someday...when I move into a house, I'm hoping it's as pretty as this one so you can paint it for me ;)
