I'm skipping November & moving right to December

I have my idea for November. I've had it for a while, but it will take me longer to finish than December, so I'm skipping it. :)

This month, I have been all about music. My mp3 player has been glued to my ears. I actually bought a new one that's easier to operate. I bought a cord to hook up my good speakers to my laptop and I've been downloading music like it's going out of style. There's a song out there for almost every mood. Almost. And even though I can't sing a lick, I've been singing all month, even out in public. One of my good friends acted like I was embarrassing her when I was singing and dancing by myself at the studio where we paint. I wasn't bothering anyone (unless my singing voice was hurting someone), but she kept shushing me. I was having a good time! So I'm started on December and may actually finish before the month is out. I hope to have a slow January so I can do November and January together.

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season! Happy New Year!

Finished October

I finally finished October a few weeks ago. I went simple with the abstract part. Every time I filled in a section, it looked too heavy. So I ended up just outlining the leaf pattern on the fabric to complete it. I like it. I hope you guys do, too!

I can get back to the BJP!

This is the finished piece for the challenge I was working on. It's the largest piece I've ever finished, and I'm pretty happy with it. When it comes off display, I already have a place ready for it at home! Between working overtime, working on this, and working on hand-painted Christmas gifts, I haven't worked on BJP in a while. But I'm ready to get back into it now! Below are some pics of the lightswitch plates I painted for family this Christmas.
