monday excitement (in more ways than one...)

This morning started off with ice cream for breakfast to celebrate Theo's 14th birthday (a billups' birthday tradition) and then it was off to school for all three kiddos.  I had planned to spend the morning working on a new collection of paintings for a local shop that will be carrying my work starting May 1st. I am really excited about having work shown locally but I need to have a group of 8-12 paintings completed, signed and ready to hang by next week.  You know I'm a girl who likes a deadline and so I'm going to pull a few pieces from etsy as a starting point and round it out with paintings in a variety of shapes and sizes. I have already sketched out the images and have a pretty clear vision of what I want to do but  my plans for getting started have been changed by a chicken with a limp.  Yes,  now my morning includes getting  a chicken to the vet which is sure to be exciting in more ways than one...wish me luck!
