Blue Ridge Parkway Artist would add Humor…


Please click on my Youtube! I am hoping to post my demonstration video if I can figure out the software.  If not, I will make another one on my artwork soon!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Today in church the minister was talking about how doctors consider love to be the best medicine and if it is not enough then we should increase the dosage.

I agree but let’s not forget humor!  I have always heard that Laughter is a great medicine and I work on finding it every day.  I don’t have to look far!  There is always something to laugh about!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Looking Forward to Line Dancing Tonight!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  Trying to get to a new one.  Maybe today.

Looking forward to Line Dancing Class tonight!  Our great teacher had an accident last week and dislocated her shoulder so class was cancelled.  That is always bad news.  I live to paint but Line Dance is the greatest exercise next to skating. 

I am so sorry the rink closed a while back.  I thought they were doing well but they had to close.  I don’t have time to drive to Roanoke and I don’t like skating on other surfaces.  Too easy to hit a rock and fly through the air and land on my knees.

Anyway, come on out to Memorial Baptist Church in Pulaski VA at 6:00 tonight!  Beginners are always welcome!

Between illness and the weather, it has been a long time since I have been in the pool.  Today, not only am I going swimming, but I am swimming with a friend!  Yes!  Laps are great when you do the breast stroke and chat with a friend at the same time!

Coming Along!


Please click on my latest Youtube!

 

I can’t believe that I am not having a lot of problems with my current Blue Ridge Parkway painting.  It has been coming along nicely from the first layer!  I wish they were all like that but I would probably change my mind. 

The battle is just part of the process and I think I would lose interest if they were all  like this one.  Still, it is nice to not be arm wrestling with it.

Not done, so maybe the struggle will be in the last layer.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

I have two sisters and they have let me make portraits of them which is something artists often do.  Models are expensive and it is a great experience to paint family members.  This first one is of Nan when she was ten with the only dog she had growing up.  My mother decided I needed a dog and we got this adorable poodle that we all loved.  We liked to let the hair grow out rather then trim it. 

Beau was a very sweet dog and Nan was devoted to him.

Nan was quite athletic and became a Ice Skating instructor.  I love to tell people that since it certainly isn’t a run of the mill occupation.  She excels at skating and teaching the sport.

I am glad I was able to paint her as a child and adult.  She is an interesting subject and I am especially pleased with the expressive look in her eyes in this portrait.

 

My new painting is coming along but I think it is going into the arm wrestling stage.  I guess if they didn’t start out well I would never pick up a brush. 

I love to paint but it is always a battle!

The Ballet was Great!


Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

 

The ballet was great!  How wonderful to be able to see a live transmission from Russia!  Legends of Love was beautiful and I enjoyed the interviews during the intermissions.  One of the principal dancers said he wanted to dance this ballet since he was a child!  Ambition fulfilled!

Be Careful what you are Thinking when Walking…


Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

My title is more of a joke than anything else.  A friend recently broke her ankle by falling in an awkward way and it reminded me of a strange fall I had a number of years ago.

I was walking with my husband on a sidewalk and thinking about how I probably should give up skating since it is rather dangerous and I am not getting any younger.

Then I thought I didn’t need to quit since I am so careful when I skate.

Right as that thought was going through my head my foot caught something and down I went on the cement.  Fortunately I only scratched up an arm and my head. 

Have I given up skating?  No.
