Getting Lost...

Happy Saturday!!
I'm up early, for a Saturday morning, and decided it was high time that I get away from it all.  With dishes and laundry and normal day to day house stuff pulling at me, I just want to run and hide.
How do you get away from it all??  You know, get lost??  
Sometimes for me, its a really good book, today, its coffee, music, and me in my studio with the door closed!
To get lost in some paint...
Sprays, inks, just stuff.
Seems its been way to long since I have given myself time to just create.
And just play around...
Do you ever have those kinds of days?  Where you need to just get lost??
I hope you have the greatest day ever.  I will be at Jerrys later today for a demo with Charvin Acrylics...where I will continue to lose myself!
I recently taught a journaling workshop at Jerrys, and while cleaning up after class, I found this...
Totally made me smile!
Until next time,
Ophelia

A Goal Worth Completing...

Hi blog friends, and happy Tuesday!
You may remember a few posts back I mentioned a goal that I set for myself that I promised to tell you more about...well...
It looks a bit like this so far.
Yes...there are lots and lots of canvas panels ready for some paint!
I originally set a goal to make 400 tiny paintings---yes, 448 to be exact, 1) so I could learn composition, and well, how to paint...and 2) just because I thought...why not...but I really, really just wanted to learn how to paint--outside of my journals.
A month or so ago, my daughter had to have some emergency dental wotk done, and, well, my sons tournament funds are now in her mouth!!  
So I took that same goal idea, and decided to create those paintings as a way to help raise money for him to travel with his team again this year---to Kentucky.
So, I have been playing in paint...with lots and lots of canvas boards in a variety of sizes.

I would love for you to have a look at the fundraising site and help me get this guy
to Kentucky to do what he loves...
I hope that you have the greatest day ever!
Until next time,
Ophelia

In The Midst of all the Craziness...

I find such comfort in paint...
Paint, inks, anything color...
Kind of a great escape...
And you know what?????
These little treasures ask absolutely nothing in return...
So, I continue to just play...for no other reason than the sheer joy it brings.
Until next time,
Ophelia
