I haven't done a meme in such a long time so when I saw this one on Rowan's blog I decided to do it. Feel free to take it and play along if you want....you know me, I never tag.
What is your current obsession?
Art and more specifically, my art journal....could you tell?!
What is your weirdest obsession?
I'm not sure I have one!
What are you wearing today?
Black shorts and a purple tee (what other color is there!) and I'm barefoot!
What’s for dinner?
Don't know yet but maybe leftovers.
What would you eat for your last meal?
That seafood collage we had for our anniversary, followed by lots and lots of ice cream. If it's my last meal I'm gonna have something sweet!
What’s the last thing you bought?
Groceries and a couple of tee shirts....surprisingly it wasn't something art related!
What are you listening to right now?
Mostly beautiful silence with the occasional bird song.
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Probably somewhere along the central coast of California, overlooking the ocean.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Just an hour!! Whew! Maybe visit England and see where part of me came from.
Which language do you want to learn?
I've never been good at this but maybe French or Italian because they sound so beautiful.
What’s your favourite quote (for now)?
Not a quote but a prayer I recently saw on Lia's blog:
God grant me the serenity to accept the fact
that I can't make every room in this house a craft room:
Give me courage to clean the studio I have;
and wisdom to know the difference.
What is your favourite colour?
Hhmmn, let me think....wonder what it is? Oh, yes, PURPLE!
What is your favourite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
After my little tirade the other day I think you know me and clothes aren't on the same page. I don't think I have a favorite piece of clothing unless you count my favorite jeans.
What is your dream job?
The one where I get paid tons of money for staying home and making art!
Describe your personal style?
Casual, quirky, sometimes flamboyant
What’s your favourite tree?
Never thought about this! I like weeping willows and huge oak trees.
What are you going to do after this?
Spend the day in my studio.
What’s your favourite fruit?
I eat bananas every day but I think watermelon is high on my list right now....oh, and blueberries and blackberries and....heck, I love them all!
What inspires you?
Looking at wonderful art on the internet, birds singing, sometimes something I've read....and all of you!
Your favourite books?
I don't have a favorite. I just love books....all of them.
What are you currently reading?
"The Joy of Living" - Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche; "The Land of Mango Sunsets" - Dorothea Benton Frank; and "Celebrate Your Creative Self" - Mary Todd Beam
Go to your bookshelf, take down the first book with a red spine you see, turn to page 26 and type out the first line:
landmark style were immdiately recognized when Ward described him as the artist responsible for the immensely popular Coca-Cola advertisements and roadside highway billboards. This is from "Gil Elvgren" a book about glamorous pin-ups.
So after all that, here's my art journal page for today....
Have a safe and fun Fourth of July!!!!
