Look what I got for my birthday!

Hi everyone!  I know, I haven’t been posting on my blog for almost a month!  Guess I have some catching up to do.  Today is my birthday.  For those of you who are interested, I am 69 today.  Thought I would share with you my wonderful present from my daughter, Cherrie.

Dressing table.

Isn’t it gorgeous!  Love it 🙂  OK now to sharing my art with you.

Week 3

What lies beneath

What lies beneath

I watched a video on u-tube by my friend Dawn Howell.  It is a two part video on painting a scene with a tree.  The first part is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuLCdMUe9x4  and you can find the second part from there.

Week 3

This was dedicated to my Mother.  I didn’t use Effy’s prompt, but made my own very personal page.

Thoughts of my Mom

Thoughts of my Mom

My Mother is in a nursing home and not doing well.  Struggling with Dementia and not eating the way she should be.

Week 4

Be aware of OPS (Other peoples stuff), but don’t let them take you over.  Be in the world, but not bombarded by it.

I am here

I am here

See the dot in the middle of my forehead.  When I was working on Week 5 on the other side of this page, I got paint on my face.

Week  5

What feeds your soul.  I completed this page using the same items that Effy used, because I related to those items so much.

What feeds your soul.

What feeds your soul.

I am thinking of doing another page about “What feeds your soul” before going on to week 6.  We will see.  This is how far I have gotten in my BOD.  On Monday, Effy will post week 8, so I really should start week 6.  🙂 ….However, it is my birthday, so I get to do whatever I want.  Right?

Week 3

You always make me smile

Our new house always makes me smile.  I am enjoying watching Cherrie fix it up and helping her decorate it.

Week 4

Create your own character

Create your own character

I know, I know, it just looks like another of my faces.  I am still working on painting a face with character.  It will come some day.

Patchouli, sage, pine needles and cheese cloth to make a hat.
