T Stands for Toooooo busy

Greetings! 

Wow, what a busy few days I have had.
I am making changes on my website and, (thank the selling gods) people are stocking up on what I have. Orders, orders, orders. I am very thankful.
Today though is T Stands for art class.
On Friday I took an art class on acrylic painting. I like the teacher, a pleasant Aussie accent, and I did learn some neat little tricks. However, the painting was a seascape, and well you all know how much I like working with blue. (NOT)
I went with it though. I got the sky in, the clouds and then he started on the sea. Now he had us put a purple hue and shadows to the clouds, but when going to the water he never put that purple color in for reflection. The painting looked off. So I waited a day to see if I would change my mind about it and before I could think I white washed the sea. I should have take a photo to show you what I meant. I will redo it this week.
 
 
Also T Stands for a new coffee maker. My old one finally bit the dust. This is and $18.00 coffee maker and I swear it makes the best coffee and it keeps it hot. I only drink 1 or 2 cups of coffee a month, if that, but this maker may change my mind. LOL
Just starting the brew.
 
I hope everyone is doing well. I will be around today to catch up on post. Have a great day!

  5. The coffee maker makes a huge difference in how the coffee tastes. I drink one cup each morning and don't use the big coffee maker for that. I do keep one for the times I need more than a coupla cups :) Happy T Tuesday! -and beware the Delta variant! I just wish people would get vaccinated :(

  6. Wow, you may not like blue but your beach scene is wonderful. You really know how to paint clouds. And I don't drink coffee but I have one of those inexpensive tiny coffee makers for company. Sometimes the less costly things work and last the longest. (And sometimes they don't) but I wish you good luck with this coffeemaker Nicole. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  13. I like the clouds you have and will be interested to see the sea. I read your previous post and laughed. As a Native Oregonian I miss that damp, windy, overcast beach weather. My family had beach property outside Yachats so I spent many summers being socked in with fog.

  18. I was sure I left you a comment earlier. I actually LOVE your clouds. The bit of lavender underneath brings out the fluffiness of the clouds. They are beautiful. I look forward to more as you draw the sea.

    What a fabulous new coffee maker. Great look and a beautiful black, too. Thanks for sharing your painting and your new coffee maker with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nicole.

  19. Your painting looks great; I couldn't do anything like that. It is funny, our coffee maker died the last day our family was here for a week. It was nice it only died the day they left. I went and got one at Walmart for 9.99, no clock or nothing and only one button. I make coffee for my hubby. I guess he likes it. :) I drink tea. Happy T Day!

  20. I'm glad to hear people are liking your stuff, Nicole. 👏🏻 While I don't drink coffee, it's nice that you treated yourself somethin' rather useful 🙂

    Oh, and I like the painting 💙 I don't mind the blue, actually 😜 Your painting is simple and realistic, at least to me 🤷‍♂️

  21. Wow, such a beautiful painting! I'm in awe of that sky, it looks like a photograph - amazing 😁. Enjoy your cuppa and Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  22. I love our sky, Nicole, so I know the rest of the painting will be awesome. Right now it looks like White Sands (where I was born). Hope you post your finished product. Glad you are getting lots of sales and have a new coffee maker better than your previous one. Happy late T-day!

  23. A coffee maker makes a lot of difference. I drink one cup of coffee a day. Hubby and I have different coffee makers, so we each do our own.
    Your painting is lovely. At the moment it looks like a very long beach in a tropical sea.
    How wonderful you are getting lots of sales. That can't be bad.
    Happy belated T-Day,
    Hugs,
    Lisca
