More Art and Girls' Weekend

This 9x12 pencil on bristol was completed a week ago and I need to get it framed by next Wednesday. It is the most detailed pencil drawing I have ever done other than the snowmen. Really, it looks better in person, (in person? in paper?) you know what I mean. Also have another Easter picture in progress in pencil now but will finish it in color pencil. I really will try to stop by some sites tonight perhaps, after packing and probably after a movie the hub wants to see. My attempt at keeping up failed, duh, obviously. So here I go again! Let me say that all are well here, Apollo, aka, His Royal Hindness, Dudley, the insatiable appetite for canned food now, VolleyGirl, in college now, living at home, BigBoy, wow...has a great job and enjoying it, wedding is May 12 and Mr. Unplugged, just started a new job and busier. Me, still washing 18 loads a week, cooking most nights, dog watcher, JUST WENT BACK TO THE GYM, swimming and walking in the pool....unsure how the bod will handle it yet, reading to read a book, (okay, I realize this sounds as if I'm an idiot, I read alot but it's the newspaper, cooking, decorating, junk magazines, the internet but now a real book!) creating art and entering more exhibits. I have to have a couple of pieces ready by next Wednesday. VolleyGirl and I are going off tomorrow Saturday morning for shopping, fun, girl stuff so this post will have to do until I get back! It's always funny when we go off cause I can't find my way anywhere, not fond of driving in a town I am unfamiliar with....doesn't matter that this will be the third time we have went to this area to shop. I always get lost trying to get back to the hotel. Fortunately and unfortunately, VG enjoys it cause she just likes to ride around looking, which means she isn't always a great help finding the way back while I quietly panic on the inside thinking we will end up in a different state. We stayed at the same hotel the first two times but this time we got the best rate somewhere else soooooo, so much for being accustom to getting to and fro. We have a lot of laughs though and unlike our trips to volleyball tournaments of past, there is no set time or place to be so it is much, much less stress.....aside from thinking I will end up on the interstate with zero exits leading me two states away as I try to find the mall!





Today, I am catching up on the clothes, making some calls, working on an art piece, watching for storms. Here is a recent piece completed. This snowmen piece is 11x14, was a commissioned piece for a grandmother of her grandkids. She was a very dear friend of my mother though quite a bit younger than my mom. I know, it looks really odd to see the guns, but both these grandsons are hunters. Also, the MF on the bottom, middle one's camo cap does NOT stand for what may first come to mind! It is a place near the gulf called Mo' Fishin'. These grandchildren range in age from high school to college age.

  1. Your work is amazing. How you have the patience to do all that with the schedule you keep I dont know. Yes we are all well here. Back doing much better. it laps now and then into the pain but thankfully the chiro helps. Annie was limping again till we figured out it was taking her off the Dasuquin with MSM chews I got at the vets for very expensive and putting her on some cheaper people version. NOT THE SAME. Shes back on the dog ones and amazing how well she snapped out of limping and being in pain. Have a great weekend.

  7. Again, great work, and your snowmen-so cute! Your shopping trip sounded like it could be a fun time- hope it went well. It made me think of a particular trip I was on with my daughter's basketball team. The girls were 12, we were in New Orleans for the Nationals, I was driving a rental car with 4 girls, 2 of which (whom?) had to go to the bathroom, from downtown, back to our hotel. It was a little tricky getting back to the hotel, as you could only approach it from one road, off the highway, and around one way streets. Talk about a quiet panic!
    You asked if I changed my site. I didn't really, I just retitled it on the blog.
    May 12...gonna be here before you know it!
