Catching up......

Here is a page I did as a prompt for the Roses on my Table ning group that I found... My Big 3...3 things to describe you or that you like about yourself...




Now, on to the ArtaThon at Jerry's on Saturday...

Here is Christina, getting ready for some serious painting fun...she made the most awesome painting...too bad I was so busy doing um thinking about what I was going to do that I didn't get pictures of it...


And, Sharon, rocking as usual!



Dawn here, making an uber cool book that I won.....which inspired me to try doing some of my own! Thanks Dawn!! We spent so much time talking and catching up with each other which made the day so much more fun!!


And here I am, playing along....trying to come up with something to do!!!




Now for the special part....I'm totally unorganized, and in my packing, I completely forgot one of my canvases...my husband gracious agreed to bring it along, and when he came along with the kids. After grabbing some lunch, my daughter wanted to stay and paint for a bit, so I gave it and oh my!!!!!


She jumped right in started her colors going....I just stood there totally amazed!!!


The special part was that Carissa allowed her to hang her piece in the show for bidding!!!



I was so inspired by her true...well, play. She just jumped right in without a care in the world, and painted. She didn't care what colors she was using or what it might look like in the end...or that yellow and purple could potentially make brown...she just painted away...
Kinda made me wonder why I don't paint that way...you know, with no cares or worries about it...just get in there and do it because I love it....ya know!
Enjoy your day,
Until next time,
Ophelia

Thank you for sharing your weekend, and giving us a glimpse of your precious daughter. Tell her she did a marvelous job on her painting!!!! I know you are proud of her - and yes, we would do well to live by her example of just playing with the paint!!!!!

Hope lots of money was raised. You look great in your pic - wonder who took it??
By the way, I didn't know you were doing a demo this weekend. I'll have to come along with my daughter, if I can.

Nice post Ophelia, I had lot of fun talking to you and Maria. Do you have the email id of Maria (I think I have her name correct. She was the nice lady sitting next to you talking about how she started Watercoloring at the age of 47. Also she told me that you and her are part of the Artists guild of NC. Can you please send me info on that as well. Thanks !
I am so...o glad I found you !

Kids just know how to do it don't they?! (And your little girl is super-cute!)

I just love the piece your daughter made. She's quite an artist already! I so wish I could be as free as she was with her paints and not worry so much about turning things brown and ugly, and making mistakes in general.

This inspires me to go into my studio and pretend I'm a kid and just paint without thought. I'm totally going to do that and see what happens.
