Just Been Busy...

Once again, it's been too long since I've posted anything...but that's because I've been busy! This past week was jam-packed with things we did. I went to a Mother's Day tea at the senior center and won a cute garden stone...


Then HB and I both did the monthly walk sponsored by one of the local medical groups. And of course, I went to the painting group yesterday. Here's a picture from a week ago...not everyone was there yet...

and many of us were up roaming around looking at everyone else's paintings. The instructor is on vacation this month so we're all on our own.

And finally, I've been working on some new Pixie Girls. This drawing took me quite awhile to finish.


I did two girls together...sisters or best friends. I may add some clothes later on but for now I'm ready to work on something else.


And that's just what I did...

She isn't completely finished yet but I'm going to show her anyway.

I like this half-face portion of the painting.

And I like this cropped version so maybe I'll do a little more work on her hair and see what happens. I was experimenting with some paint I got at Lowe's. I bought some small sample jars of paint because I loved the colors. And the sample jars were less expensive than buying tubes of paint at Michael's. When I took a few classes from Gary Reef he used house paint quite often. And if you keep your eye on the rejected paint at Lowe's or Home Depot you could get a gallon for about $5...that's very thrifty!

I'll try not to wait so long between posts next time. Next Tuesday we're taking a field trip to the fashion institute so that will be fun. I'll take lots of photos if it's allowed and I sure hope it is. Until next time... have a great weekend!!
