EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

PLAY, PLAY...

Just some PLAY I learned in DJ Pettit's class with a beautiful Iris in my yard that I photographed in May or June....I really love these colors....flowers for me are a must!! I deheaded my zinnias today in 99 degree weather...HOT August and not much else blooms in this heat except zinnias....but they are struggling. The bees were all over a native white flower vine and the zinnias getting what they could of nectar...lots of very busy bees! This art looks pale here...it is darker in person. I may print it on vellum and put it on an off white card stock for a card...ENJOY....I DID....Blessings!

These colors are so beautiful together. I heard on the news yesterday that Texas is one of only about four states that has had normal or cooler than normal temperatures this summer. All the other states are setting record highs. I'm sure that 99 degrees didn't feel cooler than usual.

Yes, actually we have had a decent summer until the last few weeks which have been very hot and dry...forget about wearing any makeup!! But still love Texas....and the rest of the good ole USA....hot or cold!

You learned your lessons from DJ very well. The iris collage is wonderful.
