Spinny Leaf ~ I haven't posted in a while, but good grief blogger has changed so much since the last time I created a post! I just wanted to share a little treasure of nature, a leaf caught in a piece of spider web in the crape myrtle tree in the front yard, that I captured this week on video. It was spinning like crazy! Yes, fall is here and winter is not far behind. I hope everyone is doing great!

Yeaa!! ~ I'm almost done with Chris's 'duck room' mural! I still have one more half wall to paint in a snow scene. This is the biggest painting project I've ever taken on. Chris and my daughter Kristie have been living together for going on 7 years and they bought the cutest house just up the road from us almost a year ago.

"BEEP BEEP" ~ I have really missed entering the monthly Nibblefest art contest in Ebay. I'm thrilled I finally have one to list tonight. This is an aceo size painted in acrylics. I had already painted the desert background, but always found it was somehow unfinished. The theme in the NFAC contest this month is 'feathered friends'. That gave me an idea of how to finish this desert scene! TGIF I hope everyone has a great weekend!

More Progress Pics on Chris's Duck Wall ~ 

There isn't much to see here but I have made more progress after I took these pics. I've painted some fall trees on the wall to the right. I'll get more pics the next time I work some more on this. I also added some warm colors into the big tree to suggest heading into fall. Next up, a winter scene on the wall by the closet door and the last wall will have a big field.  I'll get it finished one of these days!

More Crescent Moons, Big Blue Skies and Red Barns ~ I'm still alive, I just took a break from my blog and from painting (or rather my muse must have taken a break from me!) I finally decided to paint a couple of small aceo size paintings of my favorite subject, the countryside. I hope everyone is doing great and having lots of creative fun!!
