It has been a few days.....trying to find a balance with everything I have going on. Making progress in some areas....some still need to find there place in my schedule. All I can say is I am glad last week is over....my kids are better.....the weekend was gorgeous and I have my to do list made for the week. Yesterday was in the upper 70's and Steve asked to go over to Jekyll Island....you know me anything to get me over to the beach.
We parked in the historic district and took a leisurely walk around....going in and out of shops....last week I took some of my Paper Books over to one of the shops....he knew this as I told him about it....as we made our way through shop and after....I wanted to say something.....but I thought no.....he is going to have to remember and find them. Just when I thought he was going to say are you ready to head over to the beach for a while....he surprised me....he wanted to know if we were going to visit Just by Hand....YES, he was listening the night I told him! His next test was to actually go into the shop with rooms filled with wonderful hand crafted items and lots of shoppers. It took a few minutes but he circled around and said your books like nice!
Thought I better throw in a little artwork as someone recently asked me why I never posted my artwork on my blog.....well I do....I just don't post everything I do....so here's a 6x12 canvas I did while experimenting with different paints and techniques. This piece has several coats of black gesso, antique sheet music snippets and lots of Golden Acrylics under and over the snippets. The reason for so many coats of black gesso....I would use a color and didn't like it....so I would cover it with the gesso and go at it again.
This week is going to be busy....Tuesday I deliver the pieces I will be exhibiting in the Jekyll Island Arts Association Art Festival this coming weekend. Wed or Thurs I need to take a few pieces over I will have in the Festival Shop for sale and Friday I go to Savannah to meet Colby's plane. He is flying in to spend a few days with us. Steve and I are excited...all three kids will be here....home from college.....Colby will fly back Tuesday afternoon and KC will leave the following Sunday. Seth is already complaining about the other two coming home for so many days....he likes being home with just us....and it is just Seth and I usually for several days at a time....now the middle child will have to share us with someone else!
Thanks for stopping by!
