Standing Under The Plum Tree




My friend the organization Guru can't come for the plum harvest so I'm sending her a box in the mail. I just could not resist yesterday, WOW, I remember it was one of those days when you have inspiration flashing before you and trying to bounce from one thing to another. I stayed cool with it and with the fact that I could not do it all. But I did manage to go out early and pick some plums and take some pictures to send to my friend. She won't be coming to stand under the tree and eat so I mailed some to her. I am suppose to visit her next and I can't seem to have a free weekend to do that.



We are going to paint on cardboard when I go and she is waiting for her lesson. So, when I got to the office and looked for a plum shipping box. I found the most perfect tall skinny box and then had to just jump in and paint a plum tree on it. My other friend Susan had just the day before left me some Folk Art paints that she didn't want....she is organizing and they were ...not new and she told me they would need stirring. They did but they were the perfect colors to paint a plum shipping box.
I am thrilled with all the comment sign ups for a free spot in my next class. I spent some time yesterday between painting the box and taking care of clients getting the videos edited. Still have a ways to go.
If you haven't left your comment for the drawing, it is not too late. Just go to the next post to do that.
Thank you all, I love hearing from you and have such good intentions of making it around to all of your blogs. That is on my weekend list of fun things to do.

Faces in Thechnicolor







"Faces in Technicolor"
That's what it is. My new online workshop.
A lot of stuff jumbling through my head at the moment as I try to balance all ART in my life. Life is not in the way. The rope is tight and I'm up there with my arms out just trying to balance it all.
Workshop Give-away.
...short and to the point... leave me a comment with your favorite technicolor and I will have a drawing for a free pass to this new workshop. I will be ready to give you all the workshop details at the same time I announce the winner.

OK
Go for it!

The Cloth Side of Me

...is a Family tradition.

Both of my Grandmothers pieced and hand quilted quilts. And I have many memories of watching in awe. And so, it is a part of me.
Both gave me a quilt as a wedding gift. One grandmother we called Big Mama and one was Grannie. My Grannie gave each child a quilt and each grandchild received a quilt or two. That is the tradition that I so wish and hope that I can follow.
I have added another page tab at the top where I intend to journal about my cloth side.
Hope your weekend was great. I'm now looking forward to a long weekend ahead.

Push Through

I wanted to stay in bed this morning.

But I wasn't tired.

Just a lot of "thinking" I guess.

I did push through it.

Got ready for this desk.

I knew it would be best if I just slung paint.

So I did.

just click on it to watch

Practice makes me happy

I'm having a wonderful Mother's Day. One reason is that I "dared" to paint in this little journal. And I "dared" to use brush strokes and try to not blend. I love to practice like that.

Another reason is because my sweet daughter will be here for lunch. He is doing the steaks; I am doing the salad; she is doing the bread and baked beans. We will have a great afternoon.

And another reason is I ask my random number generator to give me a number between 1 and 41 and He said 36. So Happy Mother's Day Pat who said...

"Well, now, Sharon...there's another book I MUST go and buy!!! You know I don't want to miss 'the story.' And, a giveaway..wow...two good things!! Can't wait to read all about you...take care, pat
May 07, 2010 10:14 PM"
I'm wishing for all of you the best day ever. And from the bottom of my heart, I'm thanking all of you for your visits and comments. I wish I could send you all something. Sharon
