Designing Rugs Leopards and Goldfish

Designing large rugs 30" X 40" and one 40" X 48" with the Crowned Jewels of Birds in the center panel.  I also drew up a Leopard on a 13ct Zweigart canvas and painted it yesterday.  I also painted 4 Goldfish, but finished only three.  I need to finish the last one.  I went out and bought myself an airbrush compressor this morning so that I could easily blow out the holes and keep the canvas clean on these large rugs.  Just using my lung power is beginning to make me a little light headed and dizzy.  MY Sciatic Nerve is still giving me problems so getting dizzy on top of pain medication, sharp pains, and falling to the floor, dizzy is not an option.  This was my first day out in a month, and I of course over did it, and my leg is behaving like Quasimoto or the Hunch Back of Notre Dame for those who don't remember.  I used to be the lovely Esmerelda, and now I bend over and limp like a wicked old witch.  Oh well, this too shall pass.  Once I bring in the rest of the groceries using my mothers handy dandy Hugo walker on wheels.  I will get back to painting and finishing art.
Here are the canvases I completed yesterday, and if you see anything in my gallery you want as a needlepoint canvas just email me or call Jelly Bean Stock at their 1 800 number and talk to Lynzee our Super Duper Saleswoman who is as charming as she is cute.  She will take very good care of you, and make sure you get what you want.  Yesterdays work:

Hope you like my happy little fishies, and be sure to write when I get more work.  Remember the more work you give me, the more I stay home and out of trouble.  Even at my age, I can still get into a great deal of keep an old lady out of trouble and on the straight and narrow.  Idle hands are the Devils workshop, so I'd better go get busy in the Studio and paint some more canvases.  Have a good day, and be sure to stop and smell the roses!!
