Thankfull the week is over.

 I love barns and old buildings.
The week was busy with getting the outside back in shape
cleaning out two storage areas in the basement.
Making my supplies more accessible
and hanging a new show in the local library.
 The geese are headed back north.
the birds are busy building nest.
Everyone is  a week early.
I love seeing green all over again.
Even though we did not have much of a winter.
It was brown. yuck.
Looking forward to a quiet week-end.
Than Monday I will be making some quilt cards for
LaLa's in Lafayette.
stay safe my friends and have
yourself a peaceful week-end/

Heartland Gallery

Painted today.
I need to produce 3 - 12 by 12 inch paintings for a show.
Water and trees seem nice today.
I also started a flower painting.
Hollyhocks, white picket fence and a barn.
That show more promise.
I used Jasper red gesso for the background and
it really makes the flowers pop.
I will show you that  Wednesday.
The show is called small things.
Good name

Art Mix

 I had a nice quiet week-end.
Church, Minnesota fish for lunch, read a book
cleaned my stash closet and watched a movie with my husband.
This painting is a combination of painting and a piece
of encaustic art attached to it.
It is called XYZ.
Love the colors.
If you are near Lafayette, Indiana you can see it at
Art Mix March 30 at the Wells Cultural Center.

There's a Purple Rooster in my Garden.

I delivered my finished art quilts and a painting
to the Wells Center in Lafayette Indiana yesterday
for Art Mix.
A kick off event to start the spring season in art.
The yard was too wet to try and finish the spring
clean up so I decided to take my entries down
I-65 to Lafayette so I could have Sunday to myself.
The road was full of fast driving teenagers intent
on reaching Florida for spring break .
Caravans of cars weaving in and out of traffic.
It is amazing they all make it safely.
Met Rebbecca Brody at the Wells center.
She is an awesome watercolor artist.
If you are near to Lafayette check out the Art Mix event.
Friday the 30th is the kick-off. Tickets required.
The show will be up  until May 5th.
