Thursday July 5 through August 15
I will be back at The Glenwood to have a few large pieces on display

I'm back with an update

Here it is in the sunlight 
the white petals still need color
the yellow background needs a tint of some sort
and the most important part being the center needs some sort of something
not sure yet & am hoping it will come after the petals and the background is done.
 Here it is in the shade
this painting is my tribute to the Custer Street Fair that I will be selling at June 16 & 17
These last 3 paintings are the ones I sent in to be accepted as a seller in the fair

I think they give a good idea of what my art is.
I hope to be 100% finished by Friday on my Custer painting
I'd say I'm about 60% through now
 Cya Friday

The progress I've made so far! Still so much more to go. 
A smaller canvas

My newest Jackson Pollock book arrived today
 More pictures in this one, which I needed. I haven't seen much of Pollocks work
I'm after his wild abandonment approach 
Off for a girls get together

A day in my life

While I was waiting for my Jackson Pollock book to arrive I started reading this
Then today! My Jackson Pollock book arrived!
 All 775 pages of it!
 Once I start reading it, Mike may come home and find me looking like this
 I think Little Ms. Coco thinks I'm her mother and wants to be sitting in my chair always!
 Here is a photo of todays progress on my flower painting for the Custer Street Fair
Many petals to go!
We'll see what happens tomorrow

May is here already!

The house has been a bit turned upside down these last few weeks and I'm sure it will be another few weeks before we have settled some and then summer travelers will soon be arriving I'm sure. 
I have 5 more weeks before my first summer fair!
Every day by 8 am, I am in here ready to paint, unfortunately, I'm not always ready to paint.

 This is a way crazy background
 Usual daily garb...overalls and my scarf
 My Mr. Pe Joe is starting to grey around his eyes...old man Joe we've been calling him
 Another angle from the art room

 Mike finished painting the dining room...bye bye yellow stripes!
 Love when my tools look like this
 I finally finished the painting on the left and it is now hanging in the dining room for a few weeks
 The boys napping
 I decided to put a huge flower on this crazy canvas
I'll be back at it in the morning
