Creature Comforts

Check out this really cool flyer

tea time

time to make some tea cups...
they had fun,
and even the boys were good sports.
they got a little kooky,
but such is art!

150 feet of art

and 1 foot is mine...
artEast is having their annual fundraiser.  
You can view the pieces here.
There are some beauties that would love to come live with you.
The final bidding frenzy takes place this Saturday evening.
Yesterday I went to check on mine 
to see if anyone had bid on it yet,
and lo and behold,
mine has already sold.
Oh me of little faith again.
I am doing the happy dance,
yes I am...

are you my mother #2

I just can't help myself...
the iPad sits there and calls me,
and then I get goofy.  
I think I am getting better at the skin tones.
Having fun not 'over thinking'
and just playing.
Shouldn't we all do that?
I am winding down the school year
and hope to paint tons this summer 
as I am entering a juried show in October
and hope to have my own booth.
Yikes more on that later.
So for now you just have to settle for my doodling.

a Sunday blessing : the bluebird of happiness

let the fields be jubilant
and eveything in them.
Then all the trees of the forest 
will sing for joy...
Psalm 96:12

Have a wonderful joy-filled week!
