Are two eyed women pretty.

My version of Picasso's (Woman in a blue hat). I am sure he had a thing for women with two heads or two eyes. Maybe all the women he dated were not good looking.....after all he was no stud..Did he wake up one morning after a night of drinking and say cheez I think I will paint a two eyed woman. These are my theories (lol). Well today is another day and I am going to try to get to the studio and do something instead of work in my journal, so I am outta of here and talk to you later.

flower power...

Well this is a journal entry that I made in Victoria...I think that was the only one I made. No time for art when you are about and about all day and night. Now it is back to drawing table, I am having a block right now, so I need to get down to the studio and try to create, or read art books something.

Let the bells ring, I am back...

Well I am back, and into the whole housewife groove again. Had a great time, eat some great food, drink some great drinks, had an amazing time with my gal pals and generally just had a relaxing time. Now I am back and eager to get into some art. More pics of the trip later.

Last minute photos of the presents for the trip

Well here a few pictures of the travel journal I created for the girls. I have one for myself already. As part of there gift also I am giving scissors, glue etc. And of course I am taking my art on the go box, with needed supplies. Also included an original piece of art by me,
We are planning (trying) to go to Salt Spring Island on Saturday morning for the annual Saturday Art Market. Salt Spring Island is an artist community (robert bateman lives there for example) and they have an amazing amount of artists that live there. You have to take a ferry from Victoria there it is about 30 minutes away. Going to take alot of pics so be prepared.
I decided that I could post these now as I am sure they will not be looking at the blog.

Flower Power

Hello Wednesday....half the week gone. Was very busy yesterday went to the emergency vet's , the puppy eat a pill off the floor that I had dropped. So we rushed off, they made her vomit, and she had to stay 3 hours there. When we came home we had to give her liquid charcoal. Lets just say I would not want it in my mouth. Well the daughter and I are not nurse material. The daughter had Sofie between her legs, we had to pry open her mouth she knew what was coming and was crying and hiding her head. And I had a syringe they gave me, and I had to shoot it in her mouth about 4 times. Sofie was crying, I missed her mouth got the daughter, got the cement,got me me, but Sofie finally got it all and seems recovered today. So here is hoping for a better day today.

blue on blue finished canvases

These two canvases are now completed. Done with stencils and spray paint. The texture was done with tile putty, evelopes, bubble wrap etc. Just a little more paint needed on the edges I just noticed that. If you click on the picture with both canvases you will get a better idea of how they turned out.

show and tell

Here is one of my little watercolours I have been doing, I like doing them they are fast and easy.
Now this is something I have been working on for awhile. Lots of texture and colour. The lips are not quite right yet, he looks like he has Mick Jagger lips, need to fix that. Sorry about the mess around the picture..

Whale Bubbles...

I used some of my new "school supplies" on the whale. I wanted to get some Derwent Intense Watercolour Pencils, and here they are. I love how they stay the colours. I did a bunch of work in the studio yesterday. I finished two abstracts, worked on this Indian dream sequence, and finished the paper bag picture that I was working on. Plus a bunch of watercolour pictures done on postcard size watercolour paper. This is one of them.

Dream Car

I have a pretty new car, a Honda Civic and I am happy with it. I got it when it was brand new, my first new car. I went practical, good gas mileage, good resale value. The car I really wanted was a Volkswagan Convertible. My friend Sandy has it, in Pearl with leather seats. When I dirve with her with the top down I am in heaven. But the practical me says you cant drive with the top down when its -40 degrees out. So I made a good choice...Oh by the way the dream car is candy apple red and I am one hot thin looking mama in it. Thats why its a can see yourself anyway you want.
