Inspired by all the sewing and thrifting blogs I have been reading lately, I went on a little thrift binge a weekend or so ago. When I can spend $10 on new blouse, skirt and pair of shoes, I'm a pretty happy camper. I love these shoes. They are going to be perfect for an art reception this summer. I just need to tighten up the heel in the right foot. I am also looking for the fabulous jewel tone tights so many people are wearing.
I must get out and do some plein aire paintings this summer. I always say I will and the summer always zips by before I do it. I even have a companion for painting if I can just remember to pick up the phone and call. I really like the pink icing on the mountains when the sun is setting. And this year we still have LOTS of snow!
I wanted to put some chickens in the DTSS greenhouse for the seed sale that was happening this weekend. Turns out chickens are harder to paint than you might guess, plus I am still busy with computer classes (urk, but they are not bad....I'm learning lots).
Invermere's high school has a geo-thermally heated greenhouse where students from all over the town come to learn about horticulture. The school then uses their produce in the chef's training course. They serve wonderful meals at the High School (no bunsteads [tuna salad grilled on old hotdog buns] like I had to suffer through in my school years. Jamie Oliver would be impressed by this lot.
"To make a movie, you got to hope that millions of people will want to see your movie. To make a record album, wouldn't it be nice if a million people liked it and bought it. A novel you need 100,000 to make it worthwhile. A painting, you only need one person to buy it."
These are my Easter eggs. I dyed them then covered them with strips of my collage paper and foils. I think they are beautiful. However, next time I may just cover styrofoam eggs because they would be less fragile and Bruce and I won't bust a gut blowing them out!
I don't know why some people who click on the facebook page are directed right to it and others are not. I don't know if it is my boo-boo or theirs. I will ask my teachers on Monday, but today, I am enjoying a day out of school and trying to tackle one of two dozen things I want to accomplish today!
I am an acrylic painter exploring color and texture. I like horses, Canadian wildlife, old trucks, bold women, kind men, tequila and cashews. Most paintings are for sale. Contact me for prices and shipping if you are interested in purchasing a painting. And thanks for viewing my blog!
