Needless to say, it is very difficult to find art time when life gets complicated and you have a house guest. I have been trying to remember to get out the camera. Here is today's photo:
I call it "tree house". This is my screened porch, my place of refuge in the summertime. I am very fair skinned with light hair (with a bit of gray mixed in) and cannot be out in the sun much. This time of year the trees become so thick with greenery, I feel as though I am in a tree house and I love it! The birds flit around the feeders singing and playing and for those minutes all is right with the world and troubles disappear.
I also took a picture of some of my "art" work that hangs in the house. This one is an alphabet cross stitch that I completed many years ago and entered in the county fair. It received a blue ribbon that I was very proud to receive.
I just had a few minutes this morning to preview the next video in the Faces in Technicolor series and saw that Sharon was using a paper napkin as color inspiration, so I went through my stash of napkins and chose this one as my color choices. Once I get a chance to watch the video in its entirety, I will have a better idea how she is actually going to use it.
It is supposed to be very hot and humid today and I have the two little girls who will arrive around 10:30 and will be with us until around 10 this evening (my poor daughter is working 11 hours today). The hubster is going to the antique mall to put in his hours, so I will be entertaining his sister and the two little girls for most of the day. There will be no art today! Alas!
I am planning to take my MacBook with me to Saginaw and hopefully the hotel will have internet access so that I can watch Sharon's movies while I am there.
Gotta go - the treadmill calls!
