The Creepers Carnival --and-- An Internet Break??


Well...I got the first four paintings in my new series...
"The Creepers Carnival"
painted and listed in my Etsy Shop.

They are...
Top Left -- Conjoined Twins
Top Right -- Fortune Teller
Bottom Left -- The Tatooed Lady
Bottom Right -- The FeeJee Mermaid

'Fortune Teller' sold to the lovely Bree...
thirty minutes after listing
(a 'record' for me.)

I am so very happy with the paintings thus far...
and will be starting on 4 more in the series.

I'm also working on a
'Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum'
for my
Alice in Wonderland Series,
a framed Phoenix,
and a new 
Whimsical Creeper painting.

I'm playing around with a couple of
Moleskin Journals...hoping they will turn out...

*Quick note..
I may...or may not...be without Internet..
as of today.
I got a call on Monday, from the cable company...
(I've had so many problems related to wiring..etc..)
They told me I would be without cable
(and I'm assuming internet)
anywhere from an hour...upwards of a week..
depending on what needs to be done.

I'll be able to watch the local TV channels...so I'll have TV..
and while I'm 'down'...
I plan on getting a lot of new pieces done...
and
I really..really...really need to clean my computer.
It's bad enough that I lose connectivity on a semi-regular basis...
now I've loaded it up with so many pictures that it has slowed to a snail's pace.

So...being without Internet...may end up being
"a blessing in disguise."

If I can't get into my shop to take off my
72 hour SALE...
I forgot that the cable was going to be affected
when I put the Sale in my Shop...
and I didn't want to end it early...
so not sure how many hours over it might run...
again...I am at the 'mercy' of  TWC.

I am doing a few 'scheduled posts'...so it won't seem like I am
M.I.A....
it's just going to throw off my usual 'me' day activities
if it is not back up by then.

They're so completely wonderful...I really can't pick a fav...I hope you don't have to do without your internet too long...I'd go into withdrawal...and probably have a cleaner house! Um, a framed phoenix?

As of 4:30 CDT...the cable company hadn't yet begun work. So, I'm trying very hard to get some 'Creeper Carnival' prints listed.
Don't usually offer prints until originals have sold..but making an exception in this case.
Of course, it does delay my painting a bit...still expecting internet to go down any time,so I'm working feverishly to get computer work done.
