Just in case....

Yeah, so ALL of my creative juices have been sucked right outta me the last few weeks. I am getting ready for girls camp. Somehow I am in charge of the crafts....that one fits really well, but being in charge of the FOOD...well that is another ship to sail.

Making menus and planning stuff is just not in my DNA. Even my mother says she doesn't like to make lists because what if she wakes up and wants to do something else that day!!! LOVE THAT!!

SOOOO, I thought I needed to put something here new so you would keep coming to visit...all those of you that come and peek without a comment, and those that follow me...my sweet 10 peeps...love you!!!

I am in the middle of a painting for my oldest boy. He was a lover of space from the day he could point. He has the coolest blog entry about the latest and last shuttle mission...check his blog http://www.denver-life.com/. Anyway, I am pretty happy with the way it is going so far so I will give you a peek. So, you can see something new....Here is the beginning of the work...lots of pencil work and then a liquid mask that goes over the white or lightest areas...it works like rubber cement. It saves the whites so I can uncover them later and paint them like I want!!Then I paint a warm pink over the whole sky and some in the lower water ....after that I begin to layer the blues and purples that I want to be the underlayer of sky and clouds. I also drop some water right on the cloud areas so they will blossom on purpose and look like clouds. The warm colors also go in behind the white-hot shaft to look like the hot spots . So, now I am off to camp and crafting and cooking...whew. I am worn out before I even get started. So stay tuned....there is more to come. Always more to come...and I have decided what my new mantra is that I saw today.

Create something beautiful today even though no one might care. Isn't that cool?
