A busy creative day...

I woke up this morning burning with ambition.....

First I made this lampshade for the new light....



Then hung these cloth pieces that I sewed onto the canvases yesterday. The man got involved here, cause it just seemed like fun to roust him out of his peaceful perusal of a book and have him do this with me....



Then I found this abandoned drawing by youngest...she had sketched the bather but didn't like it, I added to it, and we both quite like it now....



This one...meh....not finished. Most of it I really like, but the chair....it so sucks. Sucks even worse without the collaged coloured section. Needs massive revision, but bits are, in my humble opinion pretty good....



This is what the table looked like for most of the day....



This one I like a lot...if you are an avid reader, you may recognise the blue section as a part of an older painting I had written off as hopeless....I like it quite a lot now...touched it up then collaged it onto this....



Now I am off with the man to the local policia to report a stray dog...the three who attacked Chuck the other day showed up, one I know, one has a collar and one, the female, is stray. The policia alert the protectora...or dog catcher, and then she will hopefully eventually find a home, and stop attacking my dog.

Movie night tonight...here comes popcorn and cocoa. mmmmmmmm

Oreneta...You are sooo talented. I love all of your work. I bet your girls just THRIVE in that atmosphere....

What a great way to spend a weekend. And I love the idea of framing swatches of pretty fabric for hanging on the wall.

More great art!
And that's what a table should look like with such a creative family!

Beth: Thank you so much...they did some painting and drawing too, although they also played Polly Pockets and tooled around on Webkinz...

Trish: Nicer than a root canal. How are you doing?

Beth: Kind of you....I like a table that looks like that too. Until dinner time, then it's a hassle.

C,

I have to admit that that lampshade looks more tasteful than the olive oil container. Although D's coloring of it did wonders.

M&P

BTW made it to Philly
