New Orleans

Got to go to New Orleans on my birthday!  Girl TRIP!  We shopped until we dropped and took in all the great culture.  I have enough inspiration and supplies to last me a year.

Birthday card

I enjoyed trying to paint a birthday card my sister in law Kate sent me.  The original artist is Rose Eddington.  Hers is much better.

My sweet husband made this for me last weekend.  The handle comes off for easy access.  I can put it on when I want to journal out back.  LOVE IT!

I think we will hang this tomorrow. Will post pictures. Going to attach to fence in six places so it will stay this time.

Can get in the way of art. I vow for at least the next three month to art instead of worrying about life. Art is life to me. I'm not going to talk about anything but art and gardening. I'm not going to think about anything but art and gardening.

I have intrusive thoughts. For now on, when one jumps in my head I will replace it with a new idea for my next project.

So if it isn't art related. I don't even want to hear it.

I worked on this a little bit this morning to take my mind off my afternoon appointments. Dentist and mammogram. Figured I would just get it all done on one day! Ugh. I see my color choices were affected my my anxiety. So glad my sweet husband took a day off to be my chauffeur and hold my hand.

no diving

If you check out the middle photo you will see how far off I was. I was really concentrating and thought I had it! Camera never lies. Wishing now that I started the d one row over. But I will have to make it work.

Worked on this page believe it or not before I heard the news of the big solar flares this week. Gave me a perfect title.

More dragonfly

Got that GIANT bottle of clear gesso for 6.95 at my local freight store. Really excited about that find. Worked on my blue background today. I like how it turned out. That tissue I got for cheap is just perfect for collage. Melts right into the page. Used Pitt india ink pens directly on the tissue then matt medium to glue it down.
