Life's speed bumps

My husband and I have had the good fortune to be able to help out some family members and take care of their little boy for a while.  His addition to our home almost six weeks ago has pretty much taken over our free time and I haven't painted for fun since.  I have done some more practical painting-our bedroom is now edamame green and his is grass sprout.  I also painted some shelves for his room.  But I have felt the twinge (it's pretty much a constant hum these days) to do something creative.

On that note, I finally have a painting in the works for Adam's (Roof Beam Reader) blog to accompany one of his upcoming book giveaways.  I am so excited about this one.  It is a subject I haven't attempted but am really interested in and the colors will (hopefully) be fantastic.  I'll post pictures as soon as it is finished-hopefully a week or so.  Thanks for continuing to follow during this absence!

Here is a picture of the little boy we are taking care of.  Brennan and I have both fallen in love with him.

This is the color of the bedroom we just painted, edamame, from Sherwin Williams.  I'll take a picture of the room once all the furniture is set up again because it ended up looking really nice.

I did the shelves in sky blue but I think I need to change them to dark blue.
