April 23rd Morning Art with me.
Well I did it. I'm afraid it might be a bit boring but here is my little bit of time with morning art today. I will probably just do this on weekdays and not the weekend.
Speaking of weekend, it is about here. Have a great one.

She is available in my Etsy.
I had great fun painting her today.
NING NETWORK NEWS
This morning I was been made aware of intentions of the Ning Network future. Part of their announcement states, " We will phase out our free service. Existing free networks will have the opportunity to either convert to paying for premium services, or transition off of Ning."
In the beginning, I set up the network so anyone could see the "Main" page and after buying a workshop, you would be able to navigate all the tabs. Wednesday morning, I decided to accept all member request thinking maybe if you were able to navigate the site, you might get a better idea of whether or not you would like to buy a workshop.
Unbeknown to me, the Ning announcement came that same evening. I do enjoy their "free service"; however, I may be OK with paying for the service as well. I will be thinking about the possible options. But in the meantime, I wanted to make you aware of the following:
Until I have more time to research options, here is what I have decided today:
1. In the beginning I said: "ABOUT CLASS DURATION ...there is no end date on the class. It is there for your indefinite use. If it is necessary to take the class down, you will be given ample notice."
So, I guess this message can be considered ample notice of the possibility of taking the class down.
2. I would like to give anyone that wants to take the workshop a last opportunity to do so. Since the "Faces: All Norah'S" workshop was set up as a four week session, there is time for another session beginning now.
To that end, I will leave the Paypal buttons active until further notice and guarantee that you will have four weeks for class participation after you buy the workshop.
I really do want to continue this site and at this point in time staying with Ning is my top option.
I will be interested to hear from you. Don't forget, if you want to go take a look I am "accepting" members. You will be able to navigate the whole sight, add photos, blog, have you own "my page". In other words everything except see the workshop groups. When you pay, you get to do that too.

Last night I had these sitting in front of me as they are in the above photo.
I thought it was pretty cool how the tent in the front was carried into the painting in the back.
Turns out, they are both performers.
Can you just imagine the bird act the young girl puts on?
And don't you know the older one must be a tight rope walker.
I can imagine that she runs toward center ring with this costume flowing from her outstretched arms.
She flings it off to be caught by her handsome assistant who joins her in the ring and up the rope ladder to the...........
..............oh my I enjoyed the circus theme.
And I enjoyed all your comments. They mean so much to me.
I just wish these were better pictures. The are both so much more beautiful in real life.
Think I will be painting more circus.
ps....did you see Project Runway last week? Their designs were to be inspired by the circus.

No matter, she is so stoic.
In my book that says "indifferent to pleasure or pain".
So then, I ask you, "what in the world is she doing at a circus?"
I am baffled.

I'm feeling like today is Friday as I will not be at this desk tomorrow. For me, a three day weekend is going to be a most wonderful event. I will finish this painting and get on with the next one.
Thank you all so very much for leaving me such nice comments. And please, I hope you are OK with me showing just a segment at a time of this painting. It seems like a way for me to blog which I realize I have become a bit lax about.
Wishing you all a great weekend.
