Girls Just Gotta Have Fun!!


This is what happens when two friends get together for a play date. We have been friends for over 50 years...unbelievable. Here we are making Christmas Planners. How did we ever find anything in that mess.
We were celebrating Cathy's Birthday...
So this is a photo of two Kathys (Cathys).

Starting early....or am I ?


Showed my students how I do my Christmas cards.
I do about 6 at a time and then I will be cutting them out and mounting them onto colored stock. We all had fun doing them and snow was flying everywhere. Let's see...how many should I make??

Today's Demo


One of my students wanted to learn how to do some snow so this is what I did as a demo. Now, I will not take responsibilty if it should snow tomorrow. Hope you like it.

Break Time



Now it is time to take a break. Thought I would try these glasses of beer...no, I tried to paint them, not drink them. The election is now over. It was exciting to watch all the people in Chicago on TV. I hate crowds.

Flowers are done.


Well, I stayed up till 4 am today to finish this painting. I do love to stay up late. This way no one will bother me when I am working. Now for my client to pick out the mat. I already have the frame for it.

Working on a Commission


Didn't paint this weekend. Instead, I took a card making class on Saturday and I have been making cards all weekend. I made some for Fall/Thanksgiving Day cards and then some for Christmas. Now that I have that out of my system for a little while, I decided to work on a commission that I need to get done. The gal has the frame already and these flowers are actually flowers from her centerpiece. I hope this is what she has in her mind. This is about 1/2 way completed.
