Optimistic,  6 x 6" ©2012 Kim Hambric

This is not my most optimistic time of the year.

Optimism runs low when it is cold and cloudy.

So I made this in what I consider cheery colors.

Originally, I was going to showcase a different piece for this post.  I pulled a few photos off of my camera of a piece I had photographed step by step.  Yep, there's the very beginning, the next step, and then another coming close to the end.  All were photoshopped this morning.  But  .  .  .  where the heck is the final photograph???!!!???

I checked all of the computer directories.  I went through all of the studio drawers.  I cannot find a trace of this piece.  Did I paint over it?  Did I finish it and take it to the artisan boutique?  Perhaps I would know the answer to that if I could find the folder that holds the inventory list.  That is gone, too.  And so is my favorite scarf.  I've looked everywhere for that.

I feel as if I'm losing my mind along with everything else.

I'm not optimistic about finding any of these.

This piece is available in my Etsy Shop.

Thanks for stopping by my blog Kim!

I haven't visited your blog in awhile, and it looks wonderful. I love the art you are working on. Your colors, the maps... beautiful.

Love the colors in this piece, they definitely picked me up. I know what you mean about not being able to find things . . . some days are just like that.
