LAST DAY OF JANUARY, 2018...

 I am working on finishing "her"
today.
Then hopefully I will have time to post!




 This morning's capture.
So much better in person of course.
I just have a very plain
ordinary 
camera.




And then...
what a surprise this take was!
Almost looks like a 
lit from below
jack-o-lantern.

IT'S JANUARY IN 2018...

 In November of 2017,
I started this...




 Maybe it was even earlier than that.
I try not to keep track. I just found a pic
on my photo op's of it in that month?






 There is paint of course,






 cheese cloth, cardboard, own painted papers,
own repurposed art work, ink writings, and






 dried flowers, torn fabric.






 This is the title,
tucked in quietly 
within the painting.






 The true colors
I cannot capture, even in daylight.






My new little love,
our granddaughter,
Venna Sloane.
How could we not possibly adore this
little pixie!
xoxo

 The true colors are in between this one and the one above Jenna.

SISTERS and NIECES February mountain trip...

 Front cover 
of my art journal.
That I will take on my trip.
Everyone will write or draw on the 
following pages.
And then photographs will be added in later.




 This deli-paper,
painted page...





Collage and paint page...







 are some of the finished,




 and prepped pages,




 INSIDE
our journal of memories,
and silliness,
and love...




Never
to be
forgotten
and passed
down through the 
FAMILY
and possibly 
the 
ages!

HAPPY SUNDAY
EVERYONE

IT'S STILL JANUARY...

On Fridays
Annie
comes over to paint
and collage. 
I always give her some directions,
and maybe demonstrations.
Then I let her
"do her thing".
And she goes to town!




 Then she explores supplies and
asks many questions,
(I love that)
chooses what she might like to experiment with and 
jumps in.
Today I put a small canvas next to her first project and, 
she squealed with delight, learning more tricks with inks.
Pretty soon she piped up with,
"Wanda, I'm ending up doing everything on the canvas"
YAY ANNIE ...
GO ANNIE...
EXPERIMENT and LEARN and have FUN with it!
I treasure these days with Annie.
She's my next door neighbor about a 1/2 acre away.





 Gallery wrapped canvas
with
dyed and painted papers,
dyed and painted fabric and fibers,
old sheet music,
and acrylic paint.
It's one of those pieces that is hard to photograph so one can REALLY see
what it's like!









I am almost finished with her...
I have so many paintings waiting in the wings.
But happy they are there.
I am trying to have more balance in life activities.
This is NOT ALWAYS EASY
when all you want to do is paint.






This is the latest little varmit captured on our outdoor camera.
We crack up at this one.
The little red light probably blinked in the dark as he was passing by and was startled!
