These needlepoint canvases are finished and waiting to be framed. It's going to cost me a fortune. No wonder I keep putting it off.

Anyway, these are in my WOMAN series. I"ve done these over the past few years. There are a few more which I'll upload later.

I'm also working on two other canvases right now, A carribean scene and a kitchen saint.

I am feeling a little bit more motivated than last week. I'm beginning to get some ideas for art.
I also have a beading project I want to start.

It's been over a week since I've been back and I just can't get
myself to create new art.
I have been needlepointing. I guess in a way, it's creative.

I have been a little discouraged about the type of art i've been doing. I think I need to do some fine art to acknowledge the fact that I still enjoy it..
Since Art Unraveled, I've been having a problem with originality. Most of the mixed media art looks the same to me.

The picture on the left is Ann Grigh's paint pallette. I love her style and her original way of creating. She sure is an inspiration to me.

Getting back to real life, not much is happening. I had my grandaughter this week end. She is growing up so fast. She'll be 13 next month. It was fun shopping with her and I enjoyed watching her pick out clothes. She definitly has her own style.
Got together with Pam, Ann and Jean to do art on Saturday. There was more talking than creating. I accomplished nothing.
