I still love to blog, it just seems that I don't do it as much as in years past. People change, things change, yada, yada, yada.
One of the things I promised myself I would do this year is frame and hang my own art. I have finally gotten around to doing this.
Here you see a copy of a Monet that I did in acrylic...
Here is a still life that I did in soft pastel...
Here is the final version of the view of the stormy sky from my sister's driveway, done in pastels.

And last, but certainly not least here is a quick shot of where I have
been doing my mat cutting and framing. After spending almost $300.00
having two pieces framed professionally, I decided to save some dough
and do it myself. Maybe not exactly as precise, but sometimes it really is all about the
Benjamins. If I can make my are look presentable for half the price, you know I'm going to do it. That leaves more money for art supplies...I'm just sayin'.
Sorry if some of the pictures are hard to see because of the glare. I'm way too trifling to take them off the wall to get a professional looking shot of each one. My house is finally looking like my own personal art gallery. I still have lots of wall space and that means there will be more art to come.
In the meantime, I may be taking a break from art and setting up the sewing machine or making some funky jewelry. Who knows, with me? I keep my needlepoint station set up to work on and I've always got at least one book that I'm reading and I'm learning to do Sudoku puzzles. I stay busy and hopefully soon, Sister Peri will soon be visiting so I'm looking forward to that. I'll try not to wait so long between posts, but I can't promise.
Love you bunches and we'll talk soon.
