Slowly moving towards winter



The weeks are flying by very quickly at my house. The days on the other hand get longer and longer. Is that possible? I notice that each day I think several times of how many weeks I still have left till the baby comes...And then before I know it-the whole week is over.

I am not posting any photos of myself at this stage, since I can barely stand the way I look and feel this time around. Getting bigger and slower day by day. The homeschooling is moving along better than I expected. Andrei being in 3d grade now, has much more work than last year. Anna is in Kindergarden and is the easier student to work with.
I am trying to paint and sketch daily, despite the fact that I am hardly inspired at all. At this point I think it is persistance that matters. That and just keeping myself in the habit of working daily. I have listed a few new small originals and ACEOs in my etsy shop. Struggling not to turn into a couch potato is the hardest part now. Will be meeting with my agent to discuss the possible book project that we have been working on next week. I wonder if it will turn into a book, and if it does, WHEN am I going to do it?

When you make that book it will sell like crazy! I for one would like a copy please and don't mind waiting a year or 3! These illos are as gorgeous as ever.

My dear Vita, it seems to be a quiet and calm expectation - both of the baby and Winter... You say you paint just to be occupied daily with art... I just wonder what your future paintings will be if you are feeling now "hardly inspired"!:)
It's nice that Andrei and Anna enjoy their studies - this promises good results!
I like your little new pictures and wish you good luck with the book project!
Are you fond of elephants? I read the beginning of the story... Maybe this special place is in the girl's room?:)
I always admire the way you work with watercolours!! I've never learned the technique at school...:-(
Take care, enjoy every day and take a rest, too! Kisses!
