...comes in all forms and from all over! Our older children are artistic so it doesn't surprise me that the younger ones are. However, I am surprised at how much attention they pay me even when I don't think they're looking. Hence life's lessons and why we should 'mind our manners' when the kids are around!
Their inspiration: my current work. Based in acrylics just because I'm in unknown territory; meaning drawing/painting the dolphins. Plus, I like the ease of acrylics and less mess!

Anna's (was the pink a dead giveaway??!!!)
Tate's (of course, it HAS to be blue even if the water wasn't!)
Their masterpieces: my encouragement and inspiration to continue to paint and improve. See? You never know where it's going to come from!

It Just WON'T Go Away!

And, realistically, I really don't want it to...except....my house is falling apart because of it!
My art, people; I'm talking about my NEED for my art!
I don't have a seperate studio like some very fortunate people do so I have to bring my materials out when I'm ready to work and put them back when I'm finished...meaning when I need the full use of my dining table!

I learned this technique back in 2000 and took the certification course in 2002...and passed it. The technique is quick and FUN and you can find out more about 'One Stroke' on Donna's website.
Now, back to some of that house cleaning...

I Am Missing Something...

...in my inventory. Something I totally bypassed and yet something I love and have loved since childhood.
What's that, you ask?
A nice delivery from Hobby Lobby's the other day has my table bustling and ready to put some together. Now, if I could just keep my eyes open long enough....

What is She Thinking Here???

Something a little different for me. Something I've been wanting to try. Giving the brushes a break from my land and sea scapes...although this still involves water. It will almost, ALWAYS involve water somehow!! Now, to add the fish!

Summertime GIVEAWAY!! (CLOSED)

Summertime is here in case you didn't know! It's also that time of year when the colors of red,white, and blue are displayed! I've had alot of fun finding a few designs from my books and making up some new ones to help celebrate the summer months.
Here's a few of them...
Some Summertime Garland
A pair of Melons...'cause we all need  a pair, right?!
Some of that Patriotism to display
A Patriotic Welcome!
An Angel to bless our USA!
A yummy Welcome!
Those ants love watermelon!
And, of course, Uncle Sammy!
( I don't like the flag on the garland; it's too heavy so I'm going to change it and use some red hearts along with the speckled white stars. What do you think?)
To participate in this GIVEAWAY, just leave me a comment telling me which one(s) you like. Come back on Saturday after 7:00 p.m. to see if you've won. Then, if I don't have your contact information, email me at VicWeave@aol.com with GIVEAWAY in the subject line (or I'll think you're spam...and who wants to be known as potted meat?!).
Thanks for coming by and
have a Happy 4th!!
