Halfway through, I dropped some teal blue in a corner and was horrified that I ruined it! I pushed on and when I was finished I loved it and I sold it in minutes after I posted it on Facebook! Gloriously Sunflowers! View
He is a beauty! I was a bit of a clothes horse when I was younger and working. Now that I can’t walk, or lift my legs by myself, I have become a minimalist. Every day I slip on a colorful pullover dress with pockets. Easy peasy! The season dictates sleeve length. And the dresses are cheap. So more art supplies with the leftover money!
That is an excellent Big Ben, considering no tools were used. I might need to practice straight lines. I’m not this good.
Boy, it was a hot one here today, 92 degrees and humid! Then the storms came ripping through and it was cool enough for the neighbors to cut up and haul away the tree that fell in their yard due to the wind. We just lost a…[Read more]
I learned a few magic tricks just well enough to impress children and a few gullible adults. Lol! My dad sailed on the great lakes and he learned magic when he was doing that. I think when you’re transporting iron ore across Lake Superior, you spend a lot of time being bored and learning stuff. Of course there is that frenetic half hour coming…[Read more]

I love your cow. A year or two ago I decided I was going to teach myself how to draw and paint a cow. I have models all around me, so that was the easy part. The hard part was to convince my eyes to see the truth of a cow face. They look sooo long, but in truth, face on, the face is foreshortened and is really only about as long as the ears are…[Read more]
I was a 70s teen! 😁 We had disco! Yay! But preteen was my very favorite little transistor radio. I could put it on my pillow and go to sleep with music in my ear. Plus, it had th e little oblong battery in it and if you touched both poles to your tongue, you got a little buzzy shock, that was both pleasure and pain.
I grew up by Lake Michigan and thought I had seen it all birdwise when it came to water fowl. Then about twelve years ago I saw these huge black and white birds that turned out to be pelicans! I researched and found out that pelicans hadn’t been in Wisconsin for 100 years! So cool!
Yay to kids getting art supplies! When I was in school once a year we had a pancake dinner with sausages and bacon. Upstairs in the big gymnasium there was a student art show. I may not have been an athlete, but I took art classes, and I always had something in the art show! Yes, kids need art supplies as much as footballs!
I do love kittens! When we first moved here, there was a farm next door and people would drop off unwanted cats all the time. So cruel! But since they mostly weren’t fixed, we often had kittens around here in the spring. We rescued some for ourselves, and then some that we gave away, and then we trapped all the adults we could and had them…[Read more]
If I had a week where I was able bodied and could travel on a vacation, I think I would spend the entire time on beaches on Lake Superior. Rent a cabin so I could cook quick stuff and not waste time in restaurants. A fire pit for nights outside stargazing. My camera to preserve memories to paint later, and a bucket for rocks that I just have to…[Read more]
