I am almost completely out of watercolor paper too, and really wanting to try hot pressed. Can't find it anywhere around here. Guess I will have to order it from Dick Blick or ???? Any suggestions? Anyhow, these drawings are what I have been creating. They are Micron pen and w/c, titled Mother Earth and Mother Bird Celebrate New Life - heehee do you think I'm pushing Spring? --and Dance of the Sea Nymph - inspired by LisaO's dream.
Noooo, I haven't put my Christmas stuff away yet; been procrastinating. I just.....sort of.....don't look at it. Tomorrow for sure! ;)
This was my gift. I went to the front yard Christmas Eve for fresh air. Ms. Bunny was there resting peacefully. Ms. Bunny had babies in my back yard 3 times, until she moved on. I was so happy to see her here, even if it's really one of her many children. Thank you Bunny, for visiting.
..I am going to go to my drawing table and get busy because I have been long lagging with my creativity.
Oh, hey, wow, have you heard about Nicci? Check out her blog www.brushedwithmagic.com/blog/ ...This artist has been working hard and it is beginning to come together for her. She got a commission to put her art in a designer house! CONGRATS NICCI!!! ...And...I'll be watching for you with that little cutie, Howie Mandel. I have a feeling you are going to get in!
SIX WIERD THINGS ABOUT ME. (Besides being a Hermit AND spelling wEIrd wierd. How weird)
1. I asked dh and he said I'm a Freaky Ol' Lady
2. I have a soft heart for birds. I like birds better than a lot of people. BIRDS RULE!
3. I am legally blind in one eye, but you would never have known if I didn't tell you. (I do find it difficult to draw a straight, horizontal line without a ruler). Well, even WITH a ruler some times! The ruler must be crooked. I was cross-eyed as a kid and teased a lot by other kids until it was fixed. Children can be cruel.
4. I am fascinated by streetsweepers. (Where does the dirt go?)
5. I believe that money CAN buy happiness! Give me yours, I'll prove it! You may not be happy but I will!
6. I'm thinking....I'm thinking.....I'll have to get back to you...
If you are reading this and have not done this, YOU ARE TAGGED! LOL See how wierd I am? :)
As to FRESH BLOOD, there was some on the sidewalk this morning alongside the garage. We have an owl in the neighborhood; sometimes you can hear him hoot after it gets dark. He spends quite a bit of time in our huge camphor tree. Occasionally we find fresh blood on the sidewalk, and it's right below a large knob in the tree. Guess that's his "plate".
Feel Peace in your soul. See you Tuesday, if the good Lord is willing and the creek don't rise! :)
Right now I'm weaving a basket. If I get it finished, I'll post it tomorrow.
Gee, did you get invited to the wedding? I didn't! :) Have a great, creative weekend everyone. Peace and love.
Lately, there have been really nice people touching my life. I feel really lucky, so I'm sharing some pictures relating to these nice people. THE POTTERY was hand-made just for me by the instructor, Jane, where I work part time. She was soooo sweet to do this. One is a pinch pot that holds essential oils and a tea candle. Sure makes my house smell wonderful. The other she gave me yesterday. Story behind it.......Some time ago I found this HUGE leaf in my yard. It must have blown there from somewhere, because my yard only has a variety of palms and a huge camphor tree (small leaves). The leaf was so big I had to save it, and I put it between two books and dried it. One day I took it to Jane, thinking she could use it for a pattern on some of her pottery. Yesterday, she brought this leaf pottery to me as a gift, made from a pattern of that very leaf I found in my yard. The back of it has a container that can hold water and fresh greenery, or silk. It can hang on the wall. I LOVE it, thank you Jane!! You are a "nice" person! THE EARRINGS....well, there is this sweet lady who works at the grocery store we use, and she knows I love Macaws. She was wearing these yesterday when my dh was at the store, he admired her earrings, and she took them off and sent them to me! (Some time ago I gave her a pair of earrings I had because she really likes BIG dangly earrings). So, this has come back to me, thru another "nice" person. I now have a small collection (of 3) Macaw earrings. One given to me some time ago by GPS Pamalatomatohead (grin), and another pair of Macaws that are wearing purple sombreros. I love my Macaws! And now THE HEART ... This is on the front of a hand made card sent to me by our own GPS GEMMA! The heart is woven of paper, fabric, trim, and a shiny, glittery thing in the middle. It's beautiful, and I've added this wonderful piece of art to my journal. Thanks Gemma, another "nice" person. And one more thing.....I received a "thank you" card in the mail recently (not pictured) by another sweet little Greek lady "Anastasia". She loved my Halloween spider errings, so I took them off and gave them to her. How could I not? She is adorable! So you can see that lately I have been surrounded by "nice", and I am truly grateful. Lucky me! Maybe I should check the stars???
