Well, i feel like i've hit the pick 3 the other day. i was on CL looking for a wheeled chair so i could more easily get around my art space and a bookcase for my son's growing collection of books and toys. Little did i know i would find a junk yard angel, in my back yard no less.
i got all of these panels and frames for a big fat ZERO! I can't believe it. y'all know how expensive supplies can be so it's a double wammy when i can save some dough and re-use old items. Oh yeah, i found the bomb executive chair on wheels for 20 buckaroos and a bookcase for $35.
|They say there's nothing new under the sun. These prints mounted on woods seem like predecessors to today's mixed media. I think they are so cool. But they will be re-purposed with some 2011 prints.|
|and this mamma-jamma is a whoppin 35x40. My biggest canvas to date. Yippee!|
|this has that baroque type frame. i almost don't wanna paint over it. The title is "The Coqueta" and she is working that vase!|
|i've been looking everywhere for a really ornate frame to paint with a pop of color. i found it!|
|SHE is sooooo comfy.|
And it's really just hitting me how hard i am on myself. i hadn't acknowledged how much i've grown as an artist. I was only April of '10 that i picked my brushes up after a verrrrry long break. It was Kelly's book that just spoke to that part of me that said she was too broke and too busy to paint.
I focus so much on what i want to improve on that i have neglected to tell my inner girly how proud i am that she is doing something she loves and is so committed to it. Well, here's to you darling...and to all of us. SMOOCHES!
|i like the text to....ode to all of us with weight loss plans for the new year.|
