Let's go out for a little walk

I finally finished a painting...
I was beginning to worry it was not going to happen. 
It's so easy not to get to the studio even though it is in the next room.
Why is that?  
Life just takes over and before you know it,
weeks or months have passed-just not right.
This one is going to the 150' of Art Auction 
Hope the two birds find a new home.
Come and bid and they could go out for a little walk on sunny days with you!

The Princess and the Pea

The iPadders are learning Fairy Tales this trimester.
We started off with The Princess and the Pea
and even the boys had fun I think. 
Notice the pea in each...
I didn't get as many giggles as I thought I would every time I said 'pea'. ;)
Next week we will climb beanstalks...

a Sunday blessing

I have not posted a Sunday blessing in ages.
Here is Doug walking through the tunnel under Pacific Coast Highway
which comes out onto one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
from darkness into light...
The world around you seems to spin faster and faster, till everything is a blur.  
Yet there is a cushion of calm at the center of your life, 
where you live in union with Me.  
Return to this soothing Center as often as you can, 
for this is where you are energized:  filled with my Love, Joy, and Peace.
Sarah Young

oh to be a kite...

I wish I was a kite dancing in the clear blue sky.
This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago at Crystal Cove by Laguna Beach...
82 degrees,
 slight breeze, 
waves cascading in the background,
children laughing, 
sand between the toes,
date shake in hand...
Ahh I think I will just close my eyes and let it flow over me
before the rain begins here ;(

hot chocolate?

The iPadders made mugs...
I don't usually plug companies but I seriously have to give a shout-out to Costco.
I ordered these Tuesday at 9 AM.  
I ordered ground UPS mail.
They came from South Carolina all the way to Seattle 
and do you know when they were delivered?
Wednesday 5PM.
How is that even possible?
I am always pleased with their products and quickness.
Of course it helps to start with some adorable art.
 Please note the above one is a fish drinking hot chocolate 
while he has a tube to breathe water also.
Now how clever is that?
Oh from the hands and minds of babes...
I seem to only be posting my students' art lately as
I am quite enamored with their wit and talent.
As for me it has been a tough winter and not too much art made by my hands.
Hopefully spring will be better and all those ideas winterizing in my head
 will finally make it to fruition.
