Monday's Fancy

My nine year old daughter, Claire, requested this painting so I guess we'll keep it. (Maybe I'll tell her I gave it away and wrap it up for her for Christmas...
6 months later... I'll have to make something else for Claire. Sold "Angel in Green Dress" right out from under her!

Favorite Kicks

These loafers must be immortalized. They're my fave's. Old, tattered, comfy and still hangin on to their bling. I don't even know how old they are or where they came from but if I ever see any again I'll snatch em up in a heart beat. (An assortment of colors would be groovy! ) I seem to make my way to them as soon as the weekend is approaching. It could also be that my poor achy feet are really ready for a hiatus from the tortuous heels they are forced into most of the week. These are not my usual, seemingly disposable kicks. They are special.... well worth the money spent. I think I'll hang on to these and pass them down to my dear daughter. Long after I'm gone, and the smell has dissapated maybe she'll enjoy adore them too! (just kidding, of course) ; )

My friend Gentry and her daughter Vivi.


Today is a great day!! Fall is definately in the air. It's the weekend, I get to make art, AND zumba for a cause! My friend Tina (Zumba instructor extordinaire) has coordinated an event to help raise money for Angela. She has cancer. This great community is gathering together for a 2 hour Zumba marathon. (SO much fun) Friends and relatives have been recruited. My prayer is that we raise enough to help take away some of the burden for a sweet young mom who is very sick. Pray with me!! (event pictures coming soon)

God's Eye Candy

Each year I anticipate the arrival of fall. I pass by this tree every day and I am always amazed at the magical metamorphosis that develops. It sheds it's leaves all to quickly each year and I always miss the opportunity to snap a picture. I'm finally starting to learn to never leave my camera behind...

Latest fancy

This is a mixed media painting. I painted this for my friends birthday. I hope she likes it... the love of art is definitely relative. The colors are a little more rich in real life. I'm gonna have to perfect my picture taking skills!

Here goes it!

The almost middle aged lady wasn't sure what she was doing...being new to blogging and all. She decided however to step out of her comfort zone, try it out, join in on the fun. Excitment ensued as it started to take shape. She's becoming a blogger! She thought to herself..."What's next? Is this right? Am I cut out for this???" She decided to continue her journey, knowing in the back of her brain that it wouldn't hurt to test the waters.
