Once again my Paint Pals showed up last Tuesday, for some paint fun. This month we chose a picture of a cross from Pinterest, and we thought we would tackle our inspiration with pallet knives. Through the photos, I remembered to take, are various containers of water.....we are all on a quest to drink more water.
Maybe not the best photo, the easel closest to the camera has a copy of the cross taped to it.
Lea was trying to figure out what to do about her grass......she didn't like it. Between the two of us we figured out a better way of doing it.......she was happy with what she took home.
Patty struggled and in the end hated her painting, so I gave her one of my spare canvases and she painted a beautiful abstract tulip........sorry I didn't get a photo of it.
Cheryl had an idea already formed, sat down and whipped this cross out, all in pallet knife. She loves abstract and working with the pallet knife............Patty does not......LOL!
We took a break and had lunch here at the house. I had made some ground beef soup with fresh veggies and some noodles, Cheryl brought some very fresh rolls and Patty had made a cream cheese brownies......oh yummmmm. It was all so good. But we were all talking and laughing about our paintings, and slurping soup and I completely forgot to take any photos. You will just have to take my word for it, the soup turned out fantastic, or maybe it was just getting to share it with great friends. So that is my T-day post. We are gathering quite a wonderful group of people that get toegether once a week for drinks, eats and festivities. Everybody is welcome to share a drink retlated post HERE, at The Altered Book Lover. (The photo of my cross is found down the blog aways)
This Weeks Journal/ Diary
I had already written in it about the afternoon spent with the GDs
With the flap open
I found this planner cover, from about two years ago, and I had painted it blue. It was originally a mauve color with gray decorations. My Journal just fit inside, as it has a flap inside the front cover to slide that first page in. I was doing the "Happy Dance" when I discovered the cover and that it FIT!
This is the beginnings for
next week I guess that would be THIS week already!!
This is it opened, I did manage to get more on these pages and even some dates. Not my favorite layout......
SHAFTER COLOURS CELEBRATION
Once again it is time for all the hoopla of the colours celebration.
Front cover of the program.......I really like this photo.
Here is the back cover with all the events and times.
The past two years I have went down to the Veteran's Hall and help set up the Art Gallery, and the tables for the wine tasting.........but this year my friends urged me to enter my art........so I DID!
This page is all about the wine tasting and meeting the artists......One place says Sunday and an other says Saturday.......who proof read this????? LOL!! It was Sunday afternoon 3:30 to 5:00. It is always a fun event and a chance to meet up with people I rarely see anymore.
This is one panel of my work. There on the far left is the cross I painted Tuesday ( and it sold). The two mixed media on the right drew the most attention....but they were not for sale.
I think everybody has seen these, I did paint a second truck.
A CLOSER LOOK
It really was a crazy busy week, between all the above was a back adjustment, a morning at GD Hannah's room to hear her President's Day speech, She was president Polk.......each student was a different president, and each stood at the podium to give their speech. There was music to walk in by and the room was all decorated red, white and blue........most of the students dressed ( as best they could) for their parts. Their teacher, Mrs. Bangle really did a good job with her students, and she just took photos and videos of each of them. THEY ran the whole performance. It was just great!!
So how busy is crazy busy???? Here is my journal diary, almost ran out of room....LOL! You can see the inside of the cover as to the original mauve color.
Well, if ya made it this far May the Saints Be With YOU!"
