Apples & Blueberries ~


Had a fabulous painting class yesterday.
We painted apples & blueberries on a wooden recipe box.

Alice

Last month I held a drawing for students that took 6 or more classes in April and Lisa won the drawing. We spent today together ~ chatting, getting to know each other better, and PAINTING! We had so much fun. She knew immediately when she found out she won what she wanted to paint. We painted the seascape landscape we painted a couple of months ago in paint class and hibiscus.




















Here is the final project ~ didn't Lisa do an awesome job! The canvas is HUGE - 48x36 and she had the perfect place in her living room that is already framed out and waiting for this canvas.


Then we ate lunch and painted some more.
















We painted hibiscus on a 16x20 canvas and I just love the Cayman Blue background. Lisa painted this one ~


















and I painted this one that Lisa got to take home as well.











Well, it's Tuesday and that means I get to share another corner of my house with you.


We've been very fortunate to have travelled to many fabulous places ~ Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Thailand, China, Iceland, England, Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Scotland, Wales, Luxemborg, and Italy just to name a few -hehehe
and with each place we've gone, we purchased a small something that reminds us of visiting or living there (Japan, Iceland, England). We purchased this curio cabinet 16 years ago in Japan and it's filled with very sentimental momentos from special places and people. Each piece has a story and special place in our hearts. The bottom of it is filled with glass ornaments because I'm too afraid of putting them away with the other Christmas ornaments. I'm afraid they'll get broken.
Speaking of BROKEN ~ my middle son broke his wrist. He was stopping a ball from going into the goal at soccer practice last week and fell on it hard. It was swollen and red so we iced it and over the last week he let us know it hurt off and on. Well, I finally took him to the doctors office yesterday after a weekend of "trying" to play goalie for his soccer team and they found that it is broken. He gets his hard cast on tomorrow and is pretty much done for the season missing two tournaments the next two weekends.


Hope you are having a fabulous week.

As usual, your ladies did an awesome job on their apples and blueberries. I can't wait to take that class on Saturday. I know you and Lisa had a wonderful time today and her paintings are so gorgeous. I know she will be proud to hang them in her home and will remember her day with you each time she admires them! Take care and I'll see you Saturday! Hugs ~ Kim

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW PROUD I AM OF MY PAINTINGS. I WENT HOME AND MY HUSBAND HUNG MY CANVAS, ONCE HE GOT OVER THE SHOCK THAT I TRULY PAINTED IT! I HAD NO IDEA HOW BEAUTIFUL IT WOULD BE AND IT IS IN THE PERFECT PLACE IN MY NEW HOME. YESTERDAY WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE TO PAINT TOGETHER AND TO JUST BE FRIENDS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR ENCOUARGEMENT AND YOUR FRIENDSHIP, AND OF COURSE THE GREAT FOOD WE SHARED.I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE DAY.
P.S THE BUTT SHOT WAS REALLY MEAN!!
STILL LOVE YA THOUGH, LISA
