It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 01): 04/01/19
It was a weird week. My daughter and I took turns being sick. Except on Wednesday when we were both sick. It made for a slower week for reading and pushed my painting to the weekend.
Today both my children are home from school for Cesar Chavez day. My daughter has an orthodontist appointment; so I'll be offline for most of the afternoon. My son meanwhile has a biology study session but he's still in the process of planning it and I'm frustrated since I'm often his source of a ride.
Although I have more of the folding canvases and more ideas for the climate change series, I'm going to set them aside for now to work on some miniature paintings. I have ten 4x4 inch canvases which I will be painting nature pieces: flowers, bees, butterflies, and so forth. These I plan to sell at this year's holiday boutique at the gallery I work at.

Sorry to hear you've both been sick. I pray you're now on the mend. Love seeing the artwork as you post it.
So many of these on your list sound great. Love mysteries and Finding Dorothy is in my pile somewhere waiting for me.
Enjoy your week.

It was a couple of miserable days but we're fine now. Thank you for your concern. I'll have more art to share next Monday. I'm now working with tiny canvases (4x4 inches). I'll be diving into Finding Dorothy tonight.

Those paintings look great and your plans for the smaller ones sound wonderful.
Comment #4: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:03:00
Thanks. I'm almost done with my first small one and it's been challenging.

I had to Google Cesar Chavez day, I’d never heard of it.
Have a great reading week:)

Cesar Chavez day is a recent California holiday and not even universally so. Hayward has a strong farming history as well as a multigenerational hispanic population. So it makes sense for the district / city government to celebrate his work.

You've been productive despite being sick. The Brie book looks like a fun cozy.

I mostly needed to get new brushes for the mini project. After three failed attempts, I finally managed to get over to the store to pick some up. The Cheese Shop Mysteries are fun.

Awesome paintings. I hope you and your daughter feel better soon. Have a great week!

We're fine. It was basically a day and a half of misery for both of us. Thanks for asking.

Great sketches! I am curious about Finding Dorothy.
Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #12: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:12:00
Thank you. I will be diving into Finding Dorothy tonight.

I think I have read that Bird and Moon comic before! I will have to look for the book.
Comics Will Break Your Heart and Tiny Infinities both look great. And I am excited to see your nature paintings as they evolve!
Have a great week, glad you are feeling better.
Comment #14: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:15:00
I've read the comic too but I like to support authors when they go from webcomic to print comic. Comics Will Break Your Heart and Tiny Infinities are both good. I'll have a new painting to share on Monday. My daughter and I are well, thanks.

Oh no sorry to hear you were sick! I love your art though- those all look really nice!
Comment #16: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:19:00
Illness is part of living with other people, especially children. We're both fine now. I'll have a new painting to share on Monday.
Comment #17: Monday, April 01, 2019 at 21:26:27
The 6 paintings look wonderful together. I hope you and your daughter are feeling better.
Comment #18: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:19:00
Thank you. Although I admit, I'm happy to be working on a new series. My daughter and I are fine.
Comment #19: Monday, April 01, 2019 at 22:38:15
I keep seeing Finding Dorothy...I hope it is good.
ENJOY your week, and thanks for coming by my blog.
Comment #20: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:23:00
Thank you. I hope to finish Finding Dorothy this week.
Comment #21: Monday, April 01, 2019 at 23:14:27
I really like those bottom, middle and right paintings. It's really neat how the sunrises/sunsets set off the utility poles. I think it's great how your son does study sessions. I can understand your frustration with being on call as the mommy chauffeur.
Comment #22: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:26:00
Thank you for the kind comments on my paintings. My son and his friends are good students. I don't mind driving my children places, although sometimes it can interfere with my own schedule.
Comment #23: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 23:01:43
Sorry you and your daughter were sick. I like the climate change series and look forward to you sharing your miniatures. Lots of good titles as usual. I like the title of Murders and Metaphors. Happy painting and Reading!
Comment #24: Tuesday, April 02, 2019 at 22:26:00
We're fine now. Thanks for your concern. I'll have my first miniature to share on Monday. Murders and Metaphors is the third book and I'm looking forward to reading it.
