Way back then.....

I posted this photo of my husband, Bob and me, on my facebook profile and it got a huge response. It is at least from 35 years ago...... That is the Chevy, Camaro Z28 that he bought me for traveling to UMass when I did my grad studies. We later sold it to buy a station wagon because he started his home improvement business. What a let down for me. No more high fives and toots while passing other cool rides on the road!

Round Robin Altered Book Swap Page

Here is the artwork I created in the first round robin altered book swap page. I used the original image of the figure, leaving it untouched on the page. I painted around it and the remainder of the pages with white paint. After the paint dried, I used water color sticks to create the environment. I cut shells from magazines, gluing them on the page, placing some glitz on as well. I like using the Neocolor, as it lends itself to expression!

I am the Queen

This is June, our kitty. She is so pretty and strikes such a pretty pose sometimes. I couldn't resist taking this photo of her, and may paint it eventually.

Perfect Day

I had a great day today. Lolled around the house most of the day and played on FaceBook. My boys visited in the afternoon and we all sat down to eat dinner (that my son, Beau, made). Buddy brought the lilacs. Here is a photo of the Robin's nest under the light on the corner of the deck. The 2 babies are pretty big right now and will probably fly out of their nest by next week.

My little friend, Ella, stayed overnight and painted the next morning. She is quite a little artist, and painted so beautifully, moving her entire body in great gestures as she painted. I could see that she thoroughly enjoyed her painting. It was a joy to watch her.
