Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th was always my mother's favorite day. She was born on April 13th and whenever if fell on a Friday we always had a big celebration.

I've taken the day off to paint. I will be displaying at our little local gallery next Thursday for their annual Artist's Reception and I'm trying to get some more pieces done for that. Here is one of the pieces I finished last week for it:

I really like the way it turned just need to get the wire on the back and ready to hang.

Below are some more of the black and white doodle things I've been obsessed with...
This first one I did for the lady I was sharing a cubicle with at work....I've changed jobs so moved to another area and she was really bummed because I took all my artwork with me...well duh...she already has one of my pieces but I went ahead and made this one for her. We've known each other for ever and she has always liked my artwork. Even the weird stuff...:)

This one was just done while watching TV. I have been doing a lot of these in my journal...around the edges, in the middle all over....someday I will need to scan those in and post them.

Well back to painting....

ta-ta for now

Batik rocks.........we had SO much fun yesterday at the batik class. Our instructor was very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, wonderful and so nice. Everyone seemed to have a great time. I know I did. Now I want to get a batik area set up ... but I sure don't have the room for it. Here are the piece's I did yesterday.

I am so glad that I joined the VAC (Visual Arts Committee), the artist's that make up the group are so amazing, helpful and friendly. And the chair person for the VAC is such a driving force for the group always pushing us to come up with ideas to help promote art for our small town. She has just started her own blog which can be viewed at:
