My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


Going Postal!

No snow :( not even a speckle. Just rainy and cold.  I was hoping to make a snow man this week or maybe make even a snow angel but no!  
Guess what? I was finally productive towards the end of this week...granted I went to sleep around 4 am every night BUT I had a break through! I can hear the angels singing... lol :)  Here is a little painting that I painted for my friend Cindy in New York and it's finally dry and ready to be shipped.
I hope she likes it- she just loves beautiful botanicals.  She had a give away on her blog and I couldn't believe that I won! So I thought I should send her back something extra special.  I hope it makes it safely to New York.  Can you believe it? I am going to have a painting that has a home in New York!
Here is what she sent me.  Look how adorable everything is wrapped.  I am not the greatest wrapper but it's what's inside the package right?
Have a good weekend! My husband and I have a date planned for this weekend! Also I wanted to let you know I have something amazing planned for you on Monday.  I can't wait to tell you all about it but Monday Monday Monday. :)

Oil on Canvas 5X5 :) Just in case your curious.

wow, i feel like I'M the winner. the painting is wonderful! i love everything about it - the subject, the perspective, the colors and textures. i can't believe i will own an erika lee sears original and will be willing to lend it out to the museum of modern art, etc., someday :). thank you so much. enjoy your weekend!

Cindy said...

oh, i love the photo of you holding the painting with the paint on your fingers and all!

you can have our snow! I'm sick of wearing my ugly rubber boots everywhere! And to answer your question, I actually have not been to charm city cakes, but I'm planning on it once I move a little closer to the city!

I read this a couple of days ago but I was in a hurry and didn't take the time to comment. Just wanted to come back and say that I LOVE the little painting and think it is super sweet of you to send it to your friend. I agree with Cindy and love how you still have paint on your fingers in the photo.

Wow - what a lovely giveaway! :)

How exciting to send another of your lovely paintings to a wonderful new home ... such a shame about the snow, but just look at all those colours you've captured! :)
