Apple Slices II

How often do you say, "We should get together sometime to... (fill in the blank) ?

I've painted this little still life a couple of times before, but I never had as much fun doing it as I did this time.  So often we've said, "We should get together and paint sometime,"  so I decided to just set a date.  

We were excited for two weeks!  "After the next faculty meeting! I can't wait!"  We laughed and we painted and we talked and we ate a little pizza and the time flew by.  Most importantly, we set a day for our next paint party... just two faculty meeting days away... 

I loved the spirit of 
lifting up...
But, we actually did face our canvases and concentrate... (a little).

And EVERYBODY left with a finished masterpiece
That's me, Julie, Holley, and Jolene.
Fourth grade teacher, third grade teacher, art teacher, and tech teacher by day...
Artists for an evening!

First Recital II

When is one just not enough?

When Mama wants it on her wall and Memaw wants it on her wall!

I've had giclees made of several of my paintings.  The place that does the imaging and creates the giclees is really good.  The product looks great, but it's expensive.

I'm getting better and faster as a painter, I had left over paint, and it I had fun doing it the first time. So... I decided to do a do-over.

They're not identical, but they're pretty close.

Click "First Recital" if you'd like to purchase this little one for your wall.

:) Ozark Mountains of Arkansas

What's the best advice you ever got?

My mom always said, "Every stage is the best stage. Enjoy each one."  From taking care of toddlers... to mini-van driver for lessons and teams... to high school activities and games... to college kids in and out of the house... and to an empty nest... 

Yeah, every stage is the best stage.

So, this isn't a painting, but it's beautiful.  We took a Labor Day ride down Old Hwy 71... gorgeous... We are blessed to live in a beautiful piece of the world.
