Lakeview Alternative Holiday Bazaar

I'm so excited to be doing this once again.
When I first started painting, my church asked me to sell some of my stuff at the annual bazaar. Once a year I would pack up the car and take it all church. I think I'm just as excited this year as I was the first  :  )

A day at our house

This is one of my favorite corners in my house :  ) 
Two of my favorite paintings high up on the wall.
Then, a small amount of my large collection of art blocks that I started collecting when I was first  introduced to art (7yrs ago) as a way of self teaching myself to become a painter. I own over 40 paintings from my dear Purple potatoe lady friend in Canada! over 40! lol I am a nut when I'm moved by something. I have several of Danita's pieces, Tasha's, Wendy Ryan, Priti Lisa, Dan from Spain and some of my own all in this little corner :  )  It makes me smile when I look over there.

 Today I had my girl Eleanor over, here she is when I painted here 5 years ago!
I love to see the progress of doing art every day of my life for at least 5 to 9 hours a day.
I have gotten better at so many things and I am proud.
and thinking about it, you all have really helped along the way. Thank you
I have been having trouble with photographing what I've been making...sorry...I want to show you all, I just rather be doing art then trying to photograph things.
Michael is still without work, but I have to tell you like I told my Mother in law...our marriage has never been better. Funny how things work sometimes.
I am proud of Mike for going to all these interviews and daily keeping up with looking and finding a company to work for. I've always banned him from reading my blog, because of my punctuations and grammer :  ) Maybe I'll forward him this one.
Zackery will be home tonight...he turned 21 in September
I may have liked him better at 4 :  )
Happy Thanksgiving everyone

A few things I've been working on

While I painted the trees I listened to a lot of music, but I found in the last week of the painting I watched Amadeus over and over at least six times...while Mozart played in the background I felt this exhilaration while finishing the painting. Since the painting has left I've watched my Jackson Pollack movie twice...Beatrix Potter and now I'm on my third viewing this week of Fried Green Tomatoes :  )
 Since coming back into the studio with the trees not being in there, I've been making things for trades and for the bazaar at my church. My mind was on those trees for over a month!and now I feel like my brain is on full force at lighting speed.
                                                                  I love paper bag art!
Hannah and her friend Ann on Halloween
Great chili Hank!

Sunday Mike & I attended The Glenwood Market Fundraiser.
What fun we had...we really needed an evening out.
Thanks Sheree & Maria!

I hope Autumn is finding you all well.
