GIVEAWAY DRAWING ~

As soon as the boys got off the bus they ran in and helped me do the drawing for the two pieces of ART I wanted to share and giveaway.
Holland mixed all the comments up in the jar and Kendall picked them out ~ and
THE WINNERS ARE ~



VIOLETS PAINTING ~














DAFFODILS







I want to thank all of you that left comments and participated! You know what they say....It isn't yours until you give it away! Now, these two pieces of ART will be coming your way ~ Oma and Jeannie.


I've been a bit busy painting as usual. My brother in law got these cupboard doors from somewhere and I encouraged him to make them either into chalkboards or trays ~ he got them painted up to be chalkboards. He put these great vintage hinges on them to attach to the wall. I added a bit of my painting on them with sunflowers and a rooster.
















Taught a class on Monday ~ we painted pansies - one of my all time favorite flowers to look at and paint! The ladies all commented that they thought this was one of the hardest they've done so far but they all did so well!
We painted on these really cute letter boxes that had a lazy susan type spinner on the bottom! They were a pain to basecoat but fun to paint on.

Then Wednesday evening I taught another class and we painted TULIPS! I had my first male student in class and he did so well as did everyone. Ray was the lucky winner of the drawing - my project piece that I painted in class.

ELLEN -
she didn't want to be in the picture but I did want to share how well she did on her tulips. She actually asked me to do a class on tulips last month so I did this class just cause she asked for it!

I faux finished all of the canvas before class time as it wouldn't have finished drying in time to get our piece done in two hours. Can you believe that that is all the time these students have and they paint these amazing projects.Never ceases to amaze or delight me!

Haven't been keeping you updated - lost 3.2 lbs last week at WW. So, I'm just under 10lbs. Didn't get to go today but hope next weeks weigh in is just as good as last!

Have a great weekend! I've got 3 painting classes next week I have to get ready for. I did manage to get some pictures sent off to be developed so that I can get back to scrapbooking!

I absolutely LOVE the chalk boards. What a great idea. You NEVER cease to amaze me. I think you need to rename your blog ...
DREAM, CREATE, INSPIRE, AMAZE! Pansy is my very favorite flower too because it means "thinking of you". About 10 years ago a family member was diagnosed with cancer and as I was looking for something to send her for encouragement I came across the meaning of sending someone pansies. So, it's been my favorite ever since. Can't wait to see what you do next and I'm REALLY excited about painting the birdhouse on Monday. Have a great weekend.
