Good Morning

 Good morning! Happy Friday/

First I would like to send my thank you to each and everyone of you who leave comments for me. I truly appreciate all of your kind words. Art was never in my wheel house, but I am slowly feeling like it is something I can do. I even am starting to, dare I say, enjoy it. 

This week I was inspired by and totally replicated a painting by a fellow Michigander Mary Bryant Lutzke. I asked her permission and showed her my results. I am actually going to frame this and keep it for me. That is progress:):)

The art sale is tomorrow and I have approximately 48 cards and 10 original paintings about 9 x 12 to sell. The weather is looking amazing  and our town is having a harvest festival so it should be filled with people.

Today I am off to sub at school. Will be helping the little developmental kindergarteners as well as enjoying sunshine outdoors during recess, 

Have a wonderful weekend. Stay safe and healthy!

It has been a busy week as our schools began in person learning and I  was called to help sub on the playground and for delivering lunches to classes. Those couple of hours in the middle of the day really throw my schedule off:) And, I wasn't certain how I would feel about the concerns for health and safety. I have been impressed with our school and feel they are doing everything single thing possible.

I have the art sale next weekend so have been finishing getting cards and pieces ready. Here a couple of the ones I have ready. I do hope the weather cooperates and people come out. 

I also have a larger piece around 9 x 12. This fox still needs a little work. I am bringing some pieces that people can purchase to frame themselves.

Wishing you a safe and fun weekend! Stay healthy.

It's the weekend!

 It is the weekend and we are at the cottage enjoying a couple of days with friends. 

This week I did accomplish a layout as well as some painting. 

My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter loves "going to school". She set up an area in her mom's walk in closet. She has a shelf for her shoes, lunchbox, toys, etc. She sits on a step stool and does her "work" She also loves playtime and pretend nap. I had to get her a new backback because the lunch box I got her was too big for her backpacks. She is working on writing her name, knows her alphabet and is counting to almost 30. She will be ready when the day does come to go to school:)

I also worked on more cards and paintings. I like the way this blue/green one came out. 

I bought black paper so I could try these metallic paints on it. Here is my vase of flowers. 

I also played with spooky trees on very wet paper.

And I made a birthday card for a friend who lives on a lake. 


I guess I have been busier than I thought:) Adding this to PaintPartyFriday. Please visit all of the artists who post every week over there. 

Thank you for sharing your weekend with me. I appreciate your kind words. Stay safe.

Happy September

 Welcome to September! I cannot wait for the cooler temps and changing colors of fall. IT is one of my favorite times of the year. 

I tried something new this week and was happy with most of the results. I watched a Youtube from CreationsCeeCee. She does these very loose flowers with doodles. Hers are so lovely and i gave it a go. The first 3 are 9 x 12. On the last one I grabbed a sharpie instead of the Micron so my lines were much darker.  I turned a smaller one into a card. I do like the first one a lot. I need to work on color combos and doodling:):)

It is fun to try something and feel that you are getting the hang of it. What did you try this week?

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words! I truly appreciate them. Have a wonderful and safe weekend!

I am Back but will be Leaving:):)
