Art Day

Barn in Winter
8 x 10
Yesterday I hosted a group of friends for a day of painting.  Such fun.  We enjoyed a yummy pot luck lunch, and painted and laughed and created.
Kelly, Dorothy and I worked on a barn painting, Brenda did a red Cardinal in a pine tree, and Frankie finished up her wings she started in my September class. Beccy couldn't come for the entire day, so she came for coffee.
We will be meeting again next week on Wednesday.
This is Brenda's painting.

Nest and Eggs

10 x 10
As you may have noticed, I am a little addictied to painting nests and eggs.
I am also in love with this colour.
The chair in the middle is one I picked up at an antique sale and painted robin's egg blue,
and the blue chairs on either side were my grandparents.  They received them as a wedding gift, one from his family and one from hers.  I am so thankful to have their chairs.
This painting is available for sale in my Etsy shop.
There is a link below. Check out my ETSY store

Addi's Third Birthday

Our granddaughter, Addisen, turned three years old on Saturday. I had the honor of making her a birthday cake. I was suggesting all kinds of cakes to her for weeks! Barbie, ladybugs, Patchy-Patch(from Toopy and Bino) etc. she never seemed to have much of an opinion except she kept saying she wanted a bike. She was here the other day so she helped me bake the cakes. I have fun baking with her and she loves licking the bowl. So this is her cake.
