PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 12/8

Hi Everyone!
Wow what a couple of weeks.  Holidays and then a surgical procedure that has left me not 100%. I am doing much better today. Still waiting for biopsies. Enough of that for now. Big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday. Here are a few things I have been working on.  I really love doing the colorful silhouettes and I have sold a few too.



This Wolf now lives in Texas.



This is acrylics on the new paper I bought that I don't like. I really like how this turned out.



Have a great weekend!

SHE

Hi Everyone!

"She" is finished. She makes no apologies for her life, needs no validations. Her soul is seen on her face wrinkled with time and life. She embraces the goodness in all people and fights against the abuses. She sometimes stands alone, speaking out and loud, and then, her energy draws in others, and the loud becomes clear. "She" is the spirit of all women, beautiful, strong, intelligent, and standing together. "She"

PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 11/17

Hi Everyone!

First I need to apologize for not getting to all of you this last week. Lots of medical stuff going on out of town. I always leave a comment for everyone and I just couldn't get it done this week.  A big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting 
Paint Party Friday.  I have two drawings this week. Like I said lots of out of town traveling. 
Thank you to everyone who comments on my blog. I appreciate it so very much.
 Now for art.
This was a difficult study. Hiding the forefingers and thumbs and trying to make this look realist. It is all a lesson. 
To see the detail click on the picture.


I bought new paper last week and I DO NOT LIKE IT! 
It is Strathmore
drawing paper but not what I normally buy. It is lighter weight, a different tooth, and it folds or rolls. Shading is much different as well.  Next time I go to town I will get my regular paper.


Have a great weekend everyone!

PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 11/10

Hi Everyone!

My week, again, has been a whirl wind. I am happy to say that I am handling it well on a lupus scale. Tonight I will be attending our monthly bead meeting. I know I have said it before, but I  can't express how much fun we all have. So I look forward to the night. Tomorrow morning a friend and I are driving into Eugene for an Art and Craft show. I can't remember the name of it but it is at the Willakenzie Grange, if any of my Oregon friends are interested. The weekend off and then it all starts again. LOL  Let me know how your week has been. I look forward to seeing all of your art. A big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting  
Now for art.
A few drawings


Silhouette painting

 I like how these two work well together on the wall.

and a bit of abstract.

Hi Everyone!

I have had such an enjoyable week. The sun was out with no wind. We have never had as long of and Indian summer as this year and I am loving every minute of it. It is raining now but I feel OK with it. I also got my machines up and running for Nicole's BeadBacking. Thanks to all of you for being patient. Colors are coming in and I do have Midnight Black, Snow White, Dove Grey, and Mocha Cream in stock. Ya know at Beadwright I was able to draw a bit this week and finished a leather piece. 
Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting 

Here is "StoneWalled"





 Drawing for this week




Now, this isn't something I normally do but this is my great granddaughter for Halloween. Isn't she a cutie?

HATS

Hi Everyone!

It is a chilly Sunday morning and for some reason my search today made its way to hats. I have not done a blog post on hats in awhile. These are the hats that looked pretty, made me laugh or are just crazy. Enjoy

PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 10/27

Hi Everyone!

Wow another week gone. So much going on in my life, (and thank the gods most of it good) that when PPF comes along I am scrambling to get something made up to show. I need to take some time for quiet, easy going art. LOL We took a drive to Bandon, OR. yesterday. It is one of our favorite towns here on the Oregon coast. People are so friendly, the art shops are pretty amazing and we just have a nice time. We do it at this time of the year because during summer the tourist make it impossible to enjoy the town. Haaa even my own town.  Then for what ever reason I have been sleeping in. I am normally up by 5AM 4:30 is better for me. I didn't get up until 8AM today. OMG!!!! I haven't done that since....... well I don't think I have ever slept in that late. It makes me feel like 1/2 my day is gone.  I guess I needed the sleep.  So a big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting 
Paint Party Friday. I am anxious to see what all of you have created this week. 

I did get this drawn early in the week.


This is something I have wanted to try for some time.  I did learn that lighter colors are better than the darker for detail. 

I used a canvas that has been repainted on many times. That did lead to some nice texture.

PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 10/20/17

Hi Everyone!

I have to tell you that last Friday the 13th, I had the BEST day. My friend, Deb and I started at 9:30AM and ended the day at 5:00PM. We laughed the whole day and at one place we were cutting up so much we got the cashiers in on it. One of the ladies ask if we were sisters, Deb and I put our heads together and both said, YES. I love sister friends. The rest of my week has been fast, furious and outstanding. I was invited to an art show for next month in Eugene and I can hardly wait. I could only hope that all of this happy goodness continues. Last Saturday was DemArts and our FAB bead group always attends. Another day of just fun. The winner of my Sparkle Cab Contest is Karan Parker be sure to scroll all the way down to see some amazing bead art.  Sooo with that I don't really have any finished art this week. Every piece is a WIP.  A big thanks to Eva and Kristen 
for hosting Paint Party Friday.
