Day 19 of 30 in 30 Days


 OK SO I DO NOT HAVE PEOPLE down yet...
I have picked a very awkward view as well...
I have more work to do on it, but for now.....
Anyway... I am trying not to be disappointed in this painting
I have not put in shading or background, so we shall see...
I am very excited to go help with a class at U.S.F. today,
The students are painting a mural,adventures with color...
Should be great fun... Something new for me.....
I sure hope this next storm spares lives, and heads back out into the ocean...

That Time Again



 I am going to start the 30 in 30 days by working on my people skills...
Painting Aidan and his friends splashing in the waves....
.As my first, I am pleased even though it does not look a lot like Aidan...
 I am using acrylic paints on canvas pad ...
No more room on the walls.....
I am aware that this is day 18 but it took me this long to figure out how to get the pictures onto the blog page....
Now that I know how  Look Out  Here it comes....
Have a great day all....

Holiday Weekend









How did summer get here so quickly?
Our next door neighbors have left to go back north, and on the way out, cut and brought to me these beautiful flowers..
Thank You.. Thank You.. Thank You!!!!
It has been a busy few weeks ,and I have been trying to get my yard into some kind of shape, and work and, and,......
 what with so very little rain that we have had to deal with ,I am still having fun potting and repotting all my favorite plants...
In the next few weeks family will be here from out of state and I can not wait to see them  Seems like way to long a time between visits...
I am working this weekend ,so must get on the stick
Hope everyone one has a very pleasent holiday weekend.....

Long Time Coming








             

It has been a year since we have been able to get up here to the mountains, and I can feel myself starting to relax a bit... not there all the way yet, but hopefully it won't take much longer... I love that life is at a little slower pace here....
We are going to Asheville tonight to see Holly Bowling, and having seen her before, I am so looking forward to it... 
It is still acting like winter here, with the temperature of 42 as we speak,but yesterday afternoon it went to 72 so we opened up all the windows and doors ...man was that nice... 
I had so much fun on spring break, surprising Jenn, by showing up to help celebrate her 40th....
Amy and I had a ball spending time with family in Seattle...
Went to a Sip,Dip and Doodle for Jenn's birthday party and I got to see Becky there...
So much fun to get to paint with everyone....
Thank You to all Jenn's friends for coming to celebrate, and helping us to get it all together for a big surprise....
I painted 40 rocks for Jenn ....{ and it does}
It went by so fast, but we made good memories to last....
 I did not mean to go on and on, but it has been a while, so, to much to fit in to one entry.... closing for now, but I will be back...
Love Ya'll...

 I have lots more pictures to share ,but I will not be able to until the old one comes back on Tuesday... I have to many tubs of slaw for all this right now, but will be back to it real soon.... Hope you all have a great weekend and stay safe....

Days 9 and 10


                                 Cuppa


                                     Molly

Not only was I a day behind but now they loaded sideways....
Anyway I used colored pencil and a blending tool to do both of these....
Molly was all covered up under her new blanket and finally warm and snuggled....
The cuppa is a cup I like with my permanent chalk markers in it.....
We are at 69 degrees today and a bit cloudy, all the doors and windows open and a light breeze is blowing through....
Hope your week is going well.....

Day 8 of 30 in 30 Days


                 Little Buddy
                  16x20
              Acrylic on Canvas

I just finished this one and am happy to have done so...
 I did the sketch for it last year, and wanted to get it on canvas before the season is gone again...
It is the first one I have painted for the January challenge,but glad to have it....
It is so cool today I could almost say cold....
Nice to have one day of winter....
Seems a good idea to have painted snowmen... I have painted two pre-paints today also, for classes coming up....
Hope everyone is able to keep warm and safe....
