hey there Delilah

This is Delilah...I thought I would include her in my quick little post. My family and I will be taking a little vacation to South Carolina for about 10 days. I don't know if I will have a chance to post when I am gone...but will surely miss my daily addictions to all my fav blogs out there!

feels great to share it

I was thrilled to find out that my submission to the Art Auction was well received! Bidding ended at twelve noon today .... shortly after a bidding war over my piece! I was happy to contribute all the proceeds to the cause...which is the renovation of a local theatre house that is in dire need of repair.

The sweet lady who won the bidding war drove 45 minutes and waited for 2 hours to get her bid in last. It feels good.

For some reason I have trouble parting with my art. Is it because I have an emotional connection? Who knows...but it felt great today.

before and after

I was happy...
But now....I'm happier!

I wanted to submit this piece in a local silent auction ...so I reworked it ...added a word and some rosy cheeks and then some. I am happy with the results. It is great to see the before and after. I am getting better at taking photos of my artwork, I was so happy when I found the "before" saved on my computer. This is a perfect example of why it is a great idea to take those photos and organize them.
She looks like a Matilda...don't you think?

falling off the wagon

Time seems to slip by so quickly....here is some new artwork...

my photos definately need some work, that is on my long list. Learning how to use my new Canon XSI...I love it...but I want to take full advantage of all it offers...not just point and shoot. I will post my to-do list shortly....It makes me feel accountable some how. funny.
