Art Finally!



Some of you have been requesting that I post some of my artwork which I have not done in a long while so I picked this simple piece I did a few months back with Crayola paint markers in a journal I bought at TJ Maxx. It has water color type pages. Hope you like it, Paulie and Artilue!

Just today I was thinking how complicated my life is at times... which may be why I picked something simple. On Friday my car was running weird again. It was out of oil once more after only 5 days! I had to take my Aunt Pearl some corn meal after I got oil and gas. She seems to think we can afford a new car whereas we cannot.

My son is growing up on me... He went to the skating rink to meet a friend and I let him go without his momma.

I framed a collage on Saturday. I am gathering up my collages so keep your fingers crossed for me that I may be able to display my art and hopefully sell some of it. Even to just have it displayed somewhere would be something in my book; something to add to my art recume. Then I can tell all my friends to go look at it!

We had a fellowship tonight at church. I had to get stuff for finger foods at Walmart. I always take Vienna Fingers as a joke. I wish I had a cake mold to make finger cakes and frost them to they would look lifelike! LOL I know I am a sick person. I was hurring because hubby wanted to go hunting since it was the last day of hunting here.

My life is never without complications. I forgot to print out plant pics for Rhett's project due tomorrow so Rhett & I had to go back to Walmart. Of course there is a man there printing over 100 8x10's!!! This Walmart only has two printing machines. They need more! The other one was being used by a girl printing every pic on her memory card. Then there were two others behind her. I almost started to leave to go Wolf camera, but waited to use the one the man wasn't using. I helped the couple in front of me so they could hurry along. This wait for a machine took about an hour! I still had to come home to fix my cheese ball and sour cream/ranch cheese dip. I fell in love with the Walmart Great Value brand of sour cream today! I may never use another brand again. Try it if you can. It is a whole lot cheaper too.

On the way home from Walmart's I was thinking why can't I ever had an easy as pie day? But there would probably be a missing ingredient. LOL The song "MacArthur's Park" just came to mind... "Someone left the cake out in the rain/I don't think that I can take it/cause I'll never have that recipe again..."

Finishing up the science project has not been without complications either, but we have been able to fix them. I am thankful the computer is working well. Thankful it prints.

Tomorrow is another week. I hope it will be less complicated. I hope it will be artful.

Your artwork is nice - very delicate.

I was beginning to think you really didn't have these art things you keep describing and not showing on blog. Ü

Since your printer works, why not print out the photos for your son's project? You don't need photo paper to print a picture. . . just wondering.

Thanks, Paulie. I liked the fact that you thought it was delicate. I had never thought of it like that. You are funny thinking I was making my artwork up. LOL Well, I did end up printing some that night. We just though real photos would look best on it.
