It's a FRIDAY...

oops...I had to come back and edit this.
I am going to leave it this way for now.
THIS
is not the elephant I'm giving our daughter!
You may laugh, I am...
I kept looking at this thinking the color is off. What the heck and bingo. This is a second rendition of the first elephant.
I don't have a photo of the first and by husband has my camera in another country! darn!
so later I will post the real one.
YEAH...the joke is on me ;)
 
 
YEP!
Its that time of year,
OUTSIDE TIME!
Fresh air,
balmy winds,
the promise of a long hot summer...
 
so...
THIS IS IT
for now.
I matted and framed it for our daughter Erin to surprise her after she oohed and ahhed over it.
 
I am also getting ready for the art walk.
GOOD and BUSY times.
 
WONDERFUL TIMES!
happy weekends ALL
;)

INTRIGUING THURSDAY...

 I have been getting prepared for this summers art walk in a nearby town.
I started earlier this year and realized why I get so manic when the date nears (it takes me longer to figure things out than most humans)
And
this is the time when I want to just lay that paper and paint down and do nothing else.
So...I'm still a crazed person till June 3.
 
My husband Richard just smiles and shakes his head, lucky me ;)
 
16" x 20" x 1" gallery wrapped
 
 
 Richard and I read this old journal from cover to cover.
it was a year of a man's life that was helping engineer
railroads.
it was so intriguing and fun and that husband of mine explained just what they were talking about when I didn't understand.
I have already used some of these pages in my paintings...
ack!!! I know, but well...there it is.
 
 
 
this is a section of a large painting.
I just can't get a good photo of it.
you KNOW how that yellow can act!!!
 
the "smile" is from a full stamp I made and love so much.
again I have to hold myself back from putting it into all my paintings.
 
 Happy Thursday

ABSTRACT TUESDAY...

 Here
is where i've been!
Immersed
in paint, dots, stripes, circles and other designs.
 
 
 
 
 Another
LABOR OF LOVE!
 
i start out thinking (or not thinking)
what a different task/delight
a large painting involves.
 
 
 
 i have decided now on this journey...
that i enjoy both small and large works.
it's good to come to this place in my
artwork.
EVERY
PAINTING
teaches me much,
small or LARGE.
and the HIGH it leaves is most rewarding!
BUT
that goes on during the entire stint.
UP and DOWN...
 
The words in the MIDDLISH...
"We are mosaics,
pieces of
LIGHT
LOVE
STARS
Glued together with
MAGIC ~ MUSIC ~ & WORDS"
 
i could not find the person who said this, but it is a quote and it isn't mine ;)
 
24" x 36" x 2"
gallery wrapped canvas
 
i am making a new body of work for the Artwalk
in June.
 
TOTALLY TUESDAY !!!
