MOOOORE ART (and a doggie) ~ Here's some things I've done over the last couple weeks but haven't posted them yet. The first is a drawing in black inkpen on the back of a paper that came from a box of air conditoner filters. I'm thinking of printing this and maybe adding some color to it. I had done this when I was out at my Mom's house for a couple of weeks. I should have listened to my sister Betsy and brought my art things when I stayed out there! Also more fantasy tree ACEO's and last, a larger work in progress on watercolor paper that is 9 x 12 inches. I hope everyone is having a creative and fun weekend! I just had to add that little pic of my doggie Toby right after his bath. He has the prettiest silky light reflecting hair (when it's clean that is!) He has to get baths often too!

INTO THE SUNRISE ~ Yes it's another little painting 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and acrylics on watercolor paper. I promise that I am currently painting something larger though but it's not done enough to post a picture yet. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

'MARSHMALLOW SPARKLE' and 'CELESTIAL WINDOW' ~ I painted these two little ones this weekend and for some reason that marshmallow is starting to look more like a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a huge strawberry...dessert anyone!? I guess I was in a scarlet/purple mood when I painted these. They are both acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper and they are ACEO size 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches and available on Ebay.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I ended up having a fight with my vacuum cleaner Saturday and I think I won since the vacuum makes this horrible loud noise now. It scared the bleep out of me and I was frantically trying to pull the plug out of the wall because it sounded like it was going to blow up LOL! I guess I'll be shopping for a new one now.

MOUNTAINFALLS 1, TREE OF FIRE AND ICE, and MOUNTAINFALLS 2 ~ I just did these little paintings and they are all acrylics on 140 lb. watercolor paper and they are tiny landscapes (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches ACEO size).

It's so good to be back home! I was away for almost 2 weeks to stay with my Mom out in Kentucky and I want to thank everyone for the kind thoughts and well wishes for her. We had to place her in the rehabilitation part of the nursing home which was really hard to do but hopefully they will help her heal enough to walk with a walker eventually. She is a fighter and pretty spunky at times but I'm afraid that she is just getting really tired.

If any of you have an elderly person at home, it's a good idea to get rid of all the throw rugs. There was only one of those in the house where my Mom was staying and she tripped over it and fell and broke her hip, and they couldn't move it because it was under a heavy piano!
oops, forgot to mention that I'll be listing these for auction on Ebay and I'll see what happens with it.
