This is the Santa box but it is not finished. I got a little further than this picture shows and hope to finish soon.

I have had a terrible time finding a shirt to paint on that didn't cost a fortune. This is just a cheapo shirt from WalMart and it was great to paint on but too big.
I just wanted a casual fun thing to wear and paint with the Folk Art Fabric paint. They are a dream to paint on fabric with but I still haven't developed that loose style I would like to have. I will keep trying.
Not the best shot of me. We were on our way back from San Marcos, TX and stopped at an outlook area to look at the scenery. It was a beautiful drive.

I have been working on another tray painted Heather Redick style with stroke roses. It is a much harder pattern so it may take awhile. I meant to take in progress pictures but I get so involved that doesn't get done.
Until next time Ya'll

The reason for this post is that they are having a sale. Just got the email today. Check them out for yourself.

I have been practicing and my stroke work is not bad but I still need lots more practice.
This tray will probably be for sale on Etsy in a day or so. I still need to put finish on the back and edges.

These are some little plant markers that I painted up one day.
Actually I was jealous of my friend, Susan Wymola. She had painted some cuties on big knives and things. So I had to try it too.
This is definitely re-purposing (I don't know how to spell that word if there is such a word) Anyway taking junk and making something useful or pretty from it. These are some little pie pans that I had hid away and some of the tops from the icing on canned cinnamon rolls. I save them to mix a little paint or medium that you want contained, Not running all over your palette.

I saw this on a blog that I follow. Just had to share this with a link to her etsy shop.. So cute it hurts. She is making 1000 pieces. They have vintage toy parts & other found items.
Very colorful. Makes you smile everytime and I like things that make you smile.
"Slim the Cowboy is another colorful carney and quite the sexy, suave cowboy. His body is a vintage xylophone and he's got vintage bowling pin legs and old ceramic boots. His head is an old red croquet ball and can be posed. He's tall and extremely thin. Slim measures 30 1/2" tall and 14" wide at the shoulders. He's named, signed, dated and number 88 in the series of 1000 Pieces. Thanks."

Michelle Brown has a wonderful Ning site. She has classes, and photos and videos.
She has couple of videos that you can look at and photos of students work. I think all of us need to loosen up some. I am always drawn to the artists that can work this way.
I would post a picture but don’t want to steal from her page. Just click on the link and take a look.

I have been trying to figure out how to combine all my interests in one blog. I love a lot of things but knew that I would never keep up with more than one blog. That's enough work for me. So there will be lots of pictures and a few words.
The things of greatest consistant interest are family, painting, airports, and all things Texas.
All of the others change frequently. You can just never tell......
