Almost September...

I really really really am going to return here. It will be when I can figure out how to post my photos from my new camera to the same place I always have. FRUSTRATED BEYOND BELIEF I AM. So in the meantime, here is a picture of our only little grandchild, Venna, in her bathing suit and hat. We are happy grandparents.

MISSING IN ACTION...(this art action) far too long in June...

 Oh my goodness,
apology for missing in action.
So much going on this summer.
I hope your time is going well.
Now that I am back...
I am still in the pink (chuckling).
I am almost finished with this piece, 
(frame is drying) 
and then off to the gallery.
happy!




 I am working on 2 of these,
and am much further along and
promise to show you the finish!




 While swimming, playing, and good laughs
at Folsom Lake with my sisters...
these darling little butterflies came and landed off and on all day.
They were pink and blue
and only about an inch
so I couldn't get very good pics.
They were unbelievably beautiful.




 Close up's here and the next ones.
This, of one of the two I showed here in the beginning.




 I am having so much fun with some products,
it's unbelievable!
Using tissue paper, deli papers
and a gelli print pad
(oh my)




When i am finished and show you...
i will gladly let you know the products
and how some processes are done.
Simply leave me a note (i only know english)
and will gladly tell you anything!

It's been a good summer so far!

IT'S SPRING! HAVE YOU BEEN BUSY?...

 This is how




 paint went on





 barrel staves.




 They lend 
themselves 
to such
earthy
delight!




 Using:










Paint,
paper and words...




 Leaving spots 
in their natural state 
(yet sealed for preservation)




 A few deep and meaningful words,
thoughts,
like;
'JUST BE'




 Sparse amount of
personal altered photos



Ready to hang, wires on the backs (which are painted solid black)
Some of their words:
'inside the heartbeat of creation'
'simple things you already know'
'daydreaming'
and
'nowhere else matters'

"THE LAYERS OF OUR LIVES"...(probably)

 Here's the 
BIG ONE
smiling I am!

I haven't kept track of how long
it has taken to finish...
and I like it that way.

I showed many starts
and now...




I need to
paint the sides...
and off to the
gallery at the end of this month.

HAPPY FRIDAY FRIENDS

THE BEGINNING OF MARCH...

 Started 
with
some



 wine barrel
staves 
the 
other day




 This is where they
are at
tonight...




Unfinished,
but getting there
(smiling)

There is plaster, acrylics, own altered photos, and painted fabric.

Wahoo,
can't wait to see them finished!

HAVE A BEAUTY OF A WEEKEND
MY FRIENDS

LEAVING THE PAST BEHIND...

 They had to leave their 
place behind.
The house and out buildings,
they improved.
They all grew.
And most saddest of all,
they had to leave
the barn they built 
from the ground up. 
And of course the 
BEAUTIFUL LAND.




They took a little trip
back to see what it
looked like later.
It looked so different.
And their flowers still grew,
even though the land wasn't
beautiful anymore.

ARE YOU MY CREATION...?

Here's what I was thinking. I am in a Co-op gallery right now. I can't show any of my faces, it might conflict with another artist. Soooo...I can NEVER stop doing my faces and this I did today. I am going to make a series along these lines (pun intended) of FACES...BIG FAT FACES. They are in my system and will probably never leave! Ergo...NUMERO UNO

TITLE: "Some days we are put together with glue, ready to rip apart at any moment" (but we somehow manage to carry on) 

HAPPY SNOW SUNDAY MY FRIENDS!

SHEESH! IT'S ALREADY FEBRUARY...

 These spilled over
while working on the painting
at the very bottom
of this post.



 The colors are
far and away
from that large one.




 I have to
divert my ideas
relaxing over getting that
larger painting moving
along.




 I'm going to call 
these 3...
Sidewalk Graffiti
or
Soft Graffiti
or 
who knows...




 Aside from the acrylic paint;
fabric, papers, writing with paint.
And very fun working in 3 colors only!




This is a portion
of a
24" x 36" canvas.
Going to return to it soon,
nice and fresh,
with new ideas!

HAPPY PAINTING EVERYONE!
