I heard someone ask what a handsome woman meant. They couldn't describe it. I think this is a handsome woman. My mom and dad ,when they see an actor that had a long good career-like Spencer Tracy,they say hes got rights......

well, that is what I think of this gal..she's got rights. I have to run back to the easel-I am on a roll!!

Yesterday I did something I have been longing to do but was thinking it was so stupid to have the impulse..I layed on the grass and closed my eyes and let the sun beat down on me. Somehow I needed to just feel the earth and the sun and just be-granted I took a book with me so that anyone passing by would think I has just taken a pause in my reading to contemplate.....and I went into that half drowsy sleep state where your mind just floats.....The dog next door kept barking until I had to reassure it that I was not having a heart attack (she is very concerned about me) It was the best 15 minutes I have spent in years.....I have been busy trying to slow down-think of what that sentence implies..sometimes things seem so stirred up-so many things tugging on you draining you, and suddenly you get a little clarity and you think how foolish it is to buy into it all. It may be only an instant but you GET it...I want to GET it all the minutes of the day..all the seconds of my life. So although I have been slowing down my creativity is at full throttle-only through enjoyment not through the thought more product or what would sell. I bet this lady got it. This is an 8 x 10 acrylic on paper.

Back to the fields. It is sunny and beautiful here and easy to find inspiration for all the greens and golds and blues in this picture. I went to my daughters band concet last night and could not believe how bigt these kids are-just reminded how fast it all goes!!

May 20 2008

This is what I long to do lately-lay my burdens down and sleep in a warm field, letting mother nature soothe and heal. Except I may look a little crazy as it is planting time and the farmers might get annoyed-still the feeling is so longed for. No one around no outside noises besides nature the heat of the sun lulling me to doze..I think I better go take a nap.

May 6th 2008

Did this for a friend of mine-it was great fun. I did it in about two and a half hours I knew I had a limited time so I just kept moving. I did it on this watercolor board stuff by Frederick's-but the water color didn't take to it. It sort of repelled instead of absorbing so I went on with acrylics and the two worked together well. I am a little disappointed in the board . I did some florals on little clay board yesterday in watercolor and that worked well-so well my husband suggested I do a ton of these little ones and use them like tiles around the kitchen, I think that's a really fun idea or coasters...of course the only time I use coasters is at someone elses house where I pretend I do it all the time..same with elbows on the table...and a few other mannerly things that fade away when I walk through my own front door.....
