Ahh thanks ladies!! Wanda, Cymry, Dee, Karen.. thanks bunches!
I'm filled with gratitude today.. do I really need to walk around for 5 min.. okay, I'll gaze around home and note my thanks.. the giant 'mess' left from preparations for the art show.. love the mess, and the reason it's here.. dc done,
Whew, home after trip to reception.. show was wonderful, an afternoon of smiles, visiting and I heard lots laughter coming from the 'card' area.. I'd written silly things in several of them. As of right now, 8 pieces art work and lots note cards have new homes.. that's like super for a small town Sunday afternoon relaxed special time! I feel so grateful and honored and tickled..
I met a couple of couples who I knew from my rodeo photo days.. when my daughter competed with their kids! So so fun..
and then!!… my daughter showed up with her sweet friend ( mom of my g'son's best friend) from Colorado.. surprised me.. my heart doing flips..10 min later.. my son walks in too! they surprised me and each other!! all smiles.. Some of my collectors drove over, lots of local people the museum has on their list.. yes.. a really nice time.. really sweet. :-)
and now, feet up, cold pack..(wet towel that's been in freezer a little while, it curves around perfect..) ankle, knee hurt, burn,sting bad.. but all in all.. life is great. :-)
pic.. some of 'the mess' before packed for show.. empty boxes are all that's here now except a few pieces I didn't take, boxes of envelopes and plastic sleeves and loose note cards and stuff.. a perfectly good mess.. :-)
ahhh yes, I've had a grateful day today!!!!
Wanda, Candace.. thanks so much for the E's! barely making it tonight..
Cleaned fridge crisper drawers out Thurs.. done!
Been getting last min things ready for show.. ankle of bad knee is size grapefruit.. no crisper drawer.. but need ice on it.. off to bed…
Ohh, looking forward to the reception,
yesterday I spoke to the lady who runs it .. she told me that a couple folks already asked her to put red tag on some.. reception is when they will be official on exhibit/sale.. but sure brought a smile to my soul!!
Pic is my recycled pony, will add some flowers under him tomorrow.. and pack him to go, set up early before show opens.. no crisper.. just flowers to add… :-)
No way to get around to ya'll… hope ya'll have wonderful Sunday!
Ahhh this one feels pretty good, my neck is tight!! Will do this one again!
pic--, a repeat but I would have a more limber neck if I had to walk through this doorway everyday! hehee
We've had terrible crazy wind, chilly now and wind a little better, light rain, much needed, and two more big fires last night nearby on ranches.. seems pretty weird.. way too many fires and no way to stop them in this wind. I've not heard if the rains helped but hope they did! Been busy painting on home portraits…
On trip to Dumas, delivering my art, one can see where two fires from those bad bad ones two weeks ago.. started on side of road… then blew miles and miles east as spread over the horizon… just so sad…
ohhh you E givers are smile makers and the best seasoning ever. :-)
Wanda, Vicki, Karen, Candace.. thaaaaank youuu!
okay, not counting salt & pepper… we enjoy fresh jalapeño, diced, as tonight in chicken spaghetti and I catch myself adding garlic quiet a bit too… so for only two.. that'll do, tonight at least. dc done!
pic is a photo I snapped this winter of frozen drop in a parsley pod.. I know I posted a pic of one of these I snapped that day, but think it was different than this photo .. I framed this one in a cool muted color Victorian frame, title "Parsley Chandelier" and it went to the show.
Today I got a few errands done, tomorrow I'll paint on the 3 home portraits for the real-estate guys.. they are due next week.. so I think I'll make it yea!
Need to put cards together with envelopes in plastic sleeves for show and some prints.. at least the wind down can begin! ahhhh… Wanda, knee swollen still, and turns purple as far as can spread my fingers out over it.. but it's behaving. :-)
hey look, 11:15!! and I'm going to call it a night! :-) hugs all
ahhh three folks with positive input for me, I have more than 3.… My folks, my hubby, my kids! several right here on dc.. friends… even my critters!!! Positive is good.. dc done.. I'll be seeing a friend at the art co-op today who always grins.. she's a wonderful positive shine. :-)
Pic, a big one I put in the show, these guys live near home. I was so tickled the two in front looked back at same time as one in back never took eyes from me.. while in velvet, they are good positive friends.
I've stretched arms, legs, back today, will do this one as soon as get off here. :-)
A long good day, all art work is now officially delivered except the recycled pony who goes Sunday afternoon, saves me 120 miles! The guys were there to hang it so I made list as they hung and got to see it ready.. not bad.. they did great job!
Everything from old, new, photos, paintings, one ceramic.. prints and giclee's..
2.1/2 inch x 3.1/2 inch tiny one to a couple around 48 inch tall.. and all sizes between. total of 73 for the show which will exhibit a month. fun fun!! With a small show I always try to have things similar.. with this one.. a wild mix-match of things! sighhhh… will feel good to slow down!
Bob, I raided two galleries and pulled lots out of the studio.. did not paint all these recent, around 10 new ones.. :-) and now I have 3 home portraits to paint by end of month.. I told the real-estate guy I'd make it.. and i will..
Yesterday after snapping pic of a small longhorn painting out in sunlight.. I walked back door and next thing I knew was headed down.. kept camera u, but chin hit a little table and knee got a rude awaking.. swollen like fat grapefruit now and turns purple-red and hot.. drats anyway.. well.. it will have to just keep going, silly knee.. I gave it a good talking to and told it I was going to trade it in if did that to me again! ha.. chin & cheek actually bled a little.. I thought about pouting, but then remembered… I needed to pack paintings so off i went.. tralalala.. :-) told hubby I am going to wait till feel better then pout! haha!
okay, I'm blabbering.. off here I go..
Wanda & Debbie, thanks so much sweet gals for the E!! much appreciation for sure!
Pic.. some of the mess before I put them in boxes to deliver.. painting and photos I think.. this is too little on side before I hit the post button.. off to raise my heels and some cane later.. hahaha
