The paintings are hung which I guess means they are done. I wish I had more time to work on them but time ran out. I'll post individual pics of them once the show comes down. I don't think they are my best work but it's work which will hopefully lead to more work. You can see them for yourself at Fabricate through August 8th.

17 weeks! I feel like time is passing much faster now. The first 12 weeks felt SO LONG. I bought a body pillow this week to help me sleep and that was the best $31.95 I've ever spent in my life. P.S. I found skinny maternity jeans and the waistline is up to my boobs. I feel so sexy. Not really.

Painting! I'm feeling quite rusty but they are coming along slowly. I've got to figure out how to make myself do this more often. I always love it when I get in the middle of several paintings at once, it just doesn't happen that often these days. Read more about the show here opening this Saturday! This one that I'm holding is a pic of my mom when she was in high school I think. She has the cutest single dimple!

A Pile of Paintings

They are ready for paint! This will be what I spend every waking minute on this next week that isn't spent at work. I'm SO behind but I like a tight deadline and a good challenge. I hate how I let my hands get so rusty though, the drawings are all so crude in comparison to how they work out when I've been drawing a lot. I had a little scare this morning, I slipped coming down the stairs from the attic and fell pretty hard. I was really freaked out so I went to the doctor to make sure everything was okay with the baby and it was. When I heard the heartbeat, which I've heard several times now, I burst into tears; so relieved that it was still there. I think today was the first moment that my everything registered love for this little life that's growing.
