So thankful our power stayed on during this winter storm. High wind and snow. Lost cable for HOURS!

Voted yes on amendment #2 and so did the rest of the people in Missouri! It'll take a while but we finally legalized medical marijuana. I am thankful for that!

In the studio

Miss Lucy spent some time in the dirt today. She loves it outside but the weather is changing. You cannot get her to step out the door if it is raining. Something tells me she was too wet for too long. So, she loves it out there if the conditions are perfect. 

To tell the truth I never feel like I am doing enough art, I had to gather all these "fails" to prove myself wrong. I should consider them practice pieces and not fails.

My husband tells me I do a lot of art so I guess I just can't get enough. Thankful for him and  for

providing me with the opportunity to art all day and all night!

I noticed these these images are similar and then saw the very same one on line yesterday. So strange!

betta water color

Putting off finishing my fish because watercolor makes me so nervous!

Gold layer before I remove the mask.

You can see I used many pictures to paint my fish.

This where I went wrong. Yellow and blue make green.

Not thrilled with it. I will look at it again tomorrow but I'm not liking the green at ALL!

Another fish.

Amazon haul

Thanks to Ms Paula Phillips I just had to buy those travel watercolors! Aren't they cute? I like them! Also ordered some expensive (for me) water color brushes. Not sure I will use those with the travel sets.

I'm most excited about the new 9x12 gelli arts plate! I'm going to experiment with oxide inks first! 

My Christmas cactus is blooming for Halloween? So pretty.
