Yesterday was my daily painting two year mark. Obviously, I can't say much for my counting ability growing over the past two years, somewhere along the way I lost count because I haven't missed a day. Good Grief. And I didn't even realize it! 6x6in, acrylic, click here to purchase

Me and this salt go way back. Not the brand, this actual container of salt. While painting, I noticed the price tag which is from a town I lived in some time ago. This salt could be pushing vintage in age. I am going to look up the packaging design, that might offer a clue as to when I bought it. 6x6in, acrylic, click here to purchase

A painting frenzy OUTSIDE. Yes, you read that right - outdoors - NOT raining. Today was Painting with Page Day and we went to Damon's Point to paint. Such an unusual place, I loved painting the marsh and this house built on stilts. All the paintings are 4x4in, acrylic.

I do not know this lady, but someone does and she's in the garden in a winter coat, with blue fur cuffs and collar, someplace other than here. She probably doesn't have her own Brie, the antagonist, standing in her blooming strawberry patch winding up to cause, er, let's call it, trouble. Spring has sprung. 9x9, acrylic, click here to purchase

This posting was intended for May 12, but no one could post due to a little glitch w/blogger - but I've been using blogger for almost two years (can you believe it?) and I've never had a problem before. Rest assured, I painted yesterday, but couldn't blog about it. . . but wanted to!

There was only a 10% chance of rain, which meant a 90% chance of no rain - so Page's Tuesday Painting Group headed outside to WeirRiver Farm. They even put the bull away for us, so we could paint near the new piglets. And there was plenty of sheltered places away from the elements. 10% Chance is 4x4in, acrylic, click here to purchase

No, no, really, I will return this teapot, I promise. I was on my way out to take Brie, the dog, for her Sunday drive and to abandon said teapot on the doorstep, but I thought I'd have one last go-around. 6x6in, acrylic, $100, click here to purchase

rved indoors. Please call

The GJWP Challenge Yankee Prop Swap left me with many new things to paint today!
We were all civilized in our swapping and I wound up with TWO, no, THREE props because someone forgot their swapped prop and I got a fabulous hostess prop, plus the one I got traded for and well, that equals three. So, this morning, I painted the prop that was not really mine. And I'm going to paint it some more before I have to give it back. There's nothing wrong with that, right?
Other News: it's a discovery really. An experiment was held last night, Brie, the goat-dog, was first on leash, then off and surprisingly, she kept herself out of trouble off leash. Did her own thing including stealing a napkin and having her way with it. Her craft needs serious attention.

I finished this one up today, there is a glare across the bottom because I didn't scan this one in as I usually do because it's too big. GJWP tonight and we're having a Yankee Prop Swap - everyone is bringing a prop to, well, swap - bet you can't guess what mine is? hint; it's not the slice of pie.

SOLDThis month's GJWP painting challenge was to paint your interpretation of "Fluffy" (click here to see them all.) We have a month to pull this off and better yet, if you are the hostess of the challenge that month, you pick the theme!
So, there you have it, I picked Fluffy.
And at 7:05 this morning I still didn't have a painting and was off to the bakery to find something fluff worthy, Brie in tow.
For the last month, I've been encountering all things non fluffy - for instance, my glass bottles (about as unfluffy as you can get), apples (better not be fluffy), mushrooms, carrots, you get my drift. But WHAT ABOUT BRIE - she's fluffy? You're quietly asking yourself, but are too polite to mention - even she has been shorn (voluntarily) and looks a little like a small farm goat at the moment, very cute, but also, you guessed it, not so fluffy.
