You sneak downstairs. You think about what favorite music/movie you want playing while you have your time. My choice was an old black and white...surely AMC or TMC would deliver. Nope. The best I could get was Cleopatra...the Elizabeth Taylor one. I'll take it!
Maddie is so excited that she can't sleep. I lay with her and hubby in our bed, hoping they both fall asleep before I do so I can sneak back downstairs to play.
Well friends...I made it! I will pay for it tomorrow I am sure. At first I was just going to paint until midnight, but I only got to start at 11pm instead of 10, so when I saw that it was 5 minutes past my deadline, I shrugged it off. How much longer would I be, anyway?
Yeah...okay, so now it is 2:15am!! I got lost...never looked up at the clock after that. I painted feathers...why would anyone ever think to look at the clock when they are painting feathers?! :)
I knew YOU would understand. And that is why I am staying up even later to share the result of that quiet place I snuck away to. Because you get it!
A while back, I posted this sketch on my facebook...I couldn't wait to paint her. She is a wallflower. A young woman at a ball in a Victorian Village who is too shy to dance. But oh, does she love to watch the taffeta and lace twirl this way and that. She is a Victorian Villager. More on that to come! Oh! And you must know...that after I took the photos, I realized that she didn't quite match my sketch. The girl in the sketch had hair more appropriate for a ball...a bit high. I like her better know...these people I create live in my "world," and in my world, no one has to have flat hair! Plus, it makes me want to go out and buy a bump-it!
That's all for now...when you are reading this, I will probably be sleeping in. That is, unless Madeline still wants to paint!
Thank you for your visit and sweet dreams!
