Working title:  Rattman Road

Target Count:  1667
Actual Count:  2793

Opening day started off with a bang! I expected to struggle with the voice of one of the characters, but instead it turned out that she had a lot to tell me. It’s all pretty well organized and I was able to end the work Hemingway-style, leaving something unfinished so there’s an easy way into the next day’s work.

I need to get ahead, too, because one of these fine days I’m going to get another temp assignment, and it’s always a struggle to work full-time and keep up with NaNo’s pace.

Today I wanted to mention my sister, Elizabeth, the painter. You may have visited her art site before (hopefully, see Blog Favorites), but if not, check it out. And her new http://www.etsy.com/shop/esolomonart Etsy shop! Original paintings and drawings are for sale, along with prints of both photography and art.

We’ve both been drawing since we were kids, but she’s the one who really took off with painting and color. I draw people, but she is more inspired by Nature. She’s got a great eye for composition, but what I like best is the energy and dynamism in so many of her paintings. Her latest is my favorite–Narcissus.Narcissus

It may not look it here, but this painting is quite large. She’s versatile and brilliant and I hope you enjoy these two pieces enough to check her sites out yourself!
