Movement of music

 Hallo,
   A dreary, cloudy, muggy day here....I ran 2 paintings over to Pensacola to Artel gallery for their new show - theme is 'Music to your eyes"
   Well in my mind music for the eyes is color so this abstract is one of my entries - the orange is more of a coral pinkish orange  IRL instead of the more orangey that it looks here but no matter how I edited it,  it wouldn't look just right....
   It is 12 inches wide and 24 inches tall and I finished the edges with orange and the stray dripping of white, purple and blue....
  Busy weekend with not much accomplished except for my time in the studio.....had planned for a lot more but....ah well....
   Have a great week!!!

Farm pics

 Hallo,
   One last post with pics from our Graduation trip to Nebraska.
  The farm where my Hubby grew up (and I spent a fair amount of time at as a kid too when our familys got together) is being taken over by the state to build a highway right through the house and yard - sometime in the next year - ish, but as we don't get home very often we spent a bit of time wandering around and in some of the sheds and such and I took a bunch of pictures.
 The last 2 pics are taken behind the house where the 'cave' is - storage for canned food and the tornado shelter....
   All for today - off to work....

Halloween Kitty





Hallo,
   A sweet Halloween card for you today.
  The digital image is by Olga Gre and I colored her with polychrome pencils onto cryogen white cardstock from Paper Temptress.
   I cut the kitty out and layered her to 'classic linen-antique gray' also from Paper Temptress. A really pretty gray with a bit of soft texture.
  Then I added the 'Happy Halloween phrase, the sticker mouse and mask for kitty, and lastly some yellow and orange rhinestones.
  Getting a head start on Halloween this year :)
    Have a great week!!!

Misc family pics....


 Hallo,
   A bunch of  misc photos from our trip home for graduation.....I took about 150 pictures, and as usual I wish I would have taken more - didn't really take any out at my Moms or at the gathering at Tom's sister Joyces.....so some are from grad/commissioning and some from lunch at Mistys, one from brunch at 'The egg and I' and some from playing mini golf with my Mom and sister(no pics of my sister as the one I did get she would probably be angry with me for showing you...)
   All for today - Take Care

Paula's graduation and commisioning .....

 Hallo,
   Well my daughter Paula is now a college graduate and a 2nd Lt. in the ARMY.....it was a busy week full of family, food, walking and more family....
   The first pics are from in front of the big coliseum in Lincoln and on the pedestrian bridge right beside it that over looks Husker stadium.
   The next batch of pics is from the Commissioning ceremony - Paula's friend Eathon swore her in. Then she chose me and her brother Jack to have the privilege of pinning on her rank, and last but the one that brought me to tears was her Dad giving her her first salute !!!!
   We are very proud of this hard working, smart, woman of ours!!!!
    Have a Happy Mothers Day everyone!!!
     Take Care

Cinnamon toast

Hallo,
   I finished this painting last weekend but just got around to taking pictures of it today....Encaustic wax with the addition of some ground cinnamon - boy did it smell good when I added it to the hot wax and when fusing it!!! Like a honey cinnamon!!!!
  Another cool thing about the way this one turned out is the figures I am finding as I look at it more - like the brown panda bear in the upper right corner and the owls face in the bottom right side and across the middle is the nose, eye and head of a dog and now that I look again maybe a tooth near the dogs nose too.....
  I just love the designs that the wax made with this one!!!
  Busy Saturday here - did about 2 hours of yard work(totally soaked in sweat by the time I was done - summer has arrived in NW Florida) Then I was off to the studio to put hardware on a painting- this one - and take pics and turn it in for the next show at ADSO. I also dropped off 2 paintings and a couple boxes of cards over at 'Stone Soup' where I have some more of my art for sale - I took over 2 of the alcohol inks ones - an elephant one and the turtles with the resin covering the whole thing and the gals seemed very enthused over them .
  I sold a painting at HH Arts this week - one of my favorites 'Fire Nebula' - I almost wish I would have kept him for myself..... but I see more art supplies in my future!!!
  Getting a bit of computer work done before going to a get together with the hubby....
  Tomorrow means more yard work and some painting time .....
   All for today - Take Care
