Meet Elle, she just happened, she far from perfect
I had stuck a napkin with elephants in my
sketch book awhile ago, and had this circus looking
half frame, and stuck it in awhile ago, and then
last night I thought I needs a funky elephant,
so this is my version of funky (lol) the feet
are not right everything about her is just about
wrong, but she is my creation, so I think she
is funkalisous( is that even a word)

A little of this and that.

this is a picture I actually took when I was in Europe years ago
I think this was somewhere in Germany
so I saw somewhere you could draw on some of your old
pictures, so here is one.  I did this awhile ago, its an oldie.
Today I was out to lunch with my friend Gail who
I met on this blog, we went out for lunch then
to the art store, we both spent money and had
a good time I always enjoy going out with her.
Tonight the shopper is coming for dinner so
its Chicken Breast stuffed with crème cheese and broccoli
baked potatoes, and vegetables.  First time making
this new recipe so its either hit or miss.  I will
let you know the verdict tomorrow

Just a peek

as you can see above, I am working on a smallish canvas,
this is a gift for someone.  Well its really not a gift
until I see the finished product, if I don't like it
its not going anywhere.  I first started with gesso, then did
some underpainting with bright bold colours, toned it down with
  some white paint, then did some stencilling
with Modeling paste.  So that's as far as I got so far. Today
I will be drawing in the central focus of the piece.  I haven't
decided exactly what that is, I have a couple of ideas and will
have to see what comes out.

I wanted to show you a brilliant idea I had
I had this wire contrapitation and was going to
throw it out and decided to use it to hang some of
my small art on it, I have way more to put on, and a
couple more of those wires things, so I can hang
my art around my studio.

Its been a bad bad day...

somedays are just bad
today while walking devil dog I fell on the cement
face first, thought I was going to break my nose and teeth
so I turned my head just as my whole body toppled over,
landed on my side and my side of my face.  And then
proceeded to roll into a huge puddle of water, soaked
from head to toe.  To add to my humiliation a bus
full of people, had just rolled in, and they
all ran over to help me.  The bus driver
wanted to call an ambulance.  I managed
to gather my dignity (not a tear came to my eye)
and told them I was fine, and I could make
it home, as it was just around the corner.
So me and devil dog, soaking wet, managed to get home,
and of course this is the day the hubster is not home.
So I made into the house, stripped out of my wet
clothes, and had a good cry.  Got over it, and the injuries
are a sore hand and fingers, not painting hand.  A sore
bruised rib, and I am going to have a huge bruise on
the side of my face.  I could have been worse, so
all is well that ends well.

Where's Waldo

This is a cover page for the dlp project
the task for same colour pallet
the green really is a teal color
but doesn't show up on here very good
I made the birds to blend in, and try
and find them, hence the title.
If you don't know Where's Waldo ,
there usually is page full of people and
you have to find Waldo. I had
fun making this page.
Today I went out with my friend, who
is on her way home in B.C.  They
left there winter home in Phoenix,
so we did lunch with our other friend,
did a little shopping, and little visiting,
and some errands, all and all I had a great day

The boyfriend

Meet the boyfriend, the shoppers boyfriend
they have been together about 5 years
and I am waiting patiently for the wedding.
He is a hard worker and he sings on the side and
he is very good.  I must say he much better
looking in person.
