Playing before bed with Phthalo and Water helped me sleep like a baby 🙂
From up here in Patriots Nation GO PATS! 🙂
Feb. 1st’s Splash of Color
Instagram is Follsommill and my Wix Blog is functional at Folsom Mill Studio man this creativity is hard work never mind Zazzle at Eunice356 and RedBubble etc. I work hard to make pretty art worthy of a print or a simple card and with 5 sales this week I am so blessed.
We are covered with snow and ice I mean rock hard and slippery ice so I stay in and keep my bones safe as well as my dogs and I paint then upload images onto products you have all seen, as you have followed me from the start.
Today out of the blue someone from Boston bought a B&W photos I took of sailboats moored here on the coast of New England. I love that photo but adore Boston.
By now you all know we will once again play in the Super Bowl. From what I hear 60 % of those who watch football or say they do hate our team and want to see us lose. I get it I do, same old same old right, lol NO! Who wins games like our team we either make it look like the other team never showed up or they come back in the last quarter and make the others cry as they leave the field.
Our team is fired up they want it bad who knows maybe Philly will this year but my heart is with the GOAT. Yes I am a rabid fan.
Here is a few new pieces I have been playing with as I watch them boys come from behind.
It has been hot and very humid but not like our poor west has been enduring.
I have lots of dragonflies here in the yard all posing for me and watching my every move. Maybe I am blessed with so many beautiful things wild included, because I spend time watching out for them. I pick up and move turtles from roadways I also throw on my hazards(4 way flashes) when a mother bird is walking her babies across a roadway yes I do it for humans too 🙂 even in my rig for endless mile after mile I tried to always look out for others. Being aware is all I know are you that way do you really see?
Cooler temps. are on their way they say for 2 days with periods of rain so I will continue to work at the pile of dirt with my hoe and shovel and yes a wheelbarrow we need muscles bad. I get so out of shape painting but making new friends in the art world now and have even said I will join in on a local “Wet Paint Out” this month and yesterday I taught 17 others at my local library a few things about Watercolor, all fun but I need to put my yard first 4 days a week. My hope is to offer a place for visiting artists to come and teach. We have a motel 10 miles away for the students and the instructor could stay here and I would provide meals and bed and bath. It is early in the process but it is my desire to leave my place for the arts. I will need an attorney and a business plan to set it in motion but it is the way I intend to leave this space if I can. So time to continue planting pretty spots for them to find inspiration while visiting.
Growing these in a pot. Cardinal Flowers grow along my river here now they will have new ones in a place where they will make an impact on my lower yard.
My Yucca blooms each year around the 4th of July
I always have loads of Annuals for splashes of bold color close to the house with my veggies.
Have a wonderful day. After I am done outside I shall paint after all it is #WorldWatercolorMonth #watercolorchallenge
I have set up a new blog where those who I follow and who follow me can post what they make. Handcrafted items made by YOU.
Do a blog post and add it here and I will promote it in my stores and get the word out as well.
I know it has my bracelet on header but ideally once a week to have one of your photos run there would be fun too!
Email me at Eunice356@gmail and let me know if you make something you would like to have showcased and generate some sales on. Once I add you as a contributor you can post or I can re-blog if you do a post on your blog.
A re-visit to my man made from muscles
Time to put the mower away
Snow is coming to our area
Have a Great Weekend!
My Mom has decorated cakes since I was a baby. In fact I never had a store bought one, nor did my three brothers. She only stopped making cakes when her hands crippled with arthritis and no longer could produce beautiful displays of her artwork., I think they were still beautiful but she was so hard on herself, really her cakes and frosting were so good and me being a kid, I hate to tell her it could have been messy and still yummy.
When she had orders for huge wedding cakes or say Big Bird for a Boston show, I always helped wash all the bowls, as each color on the cake had a separate one. She made the best frosting. I can not explain how good our cakes were at home. When I was a Brownie she made a Brownie Cake and when I was a Rainbow Girl she made my doll cake in beautiful white gown just like the one she made me to attend weekly meetings in, as well as a rainbow cape on her shoulders.
Mom was so talented in all she ever set her mind to teach herself. I never wanted to follow in her footsteps. I wanted to cut hair like my Dad’s Mom. Guess I could never see myself as good as Mom was so I never pushed myself to try, ah now I know why I loved driving truck!
I will scan her cake photos someday and do a blog on her. The photos that will be attached to this blog are ones I took her to see in Boston at the Boston Flower Show
Every year the Boston Flower show has a theme and then a display of talented people and what they make as related to flowers. Hope you enjoy these photos once again I am using and Kodak Easy Share, in a crowded room.
I can hardly wait to share what my Mom did with a pastry bag and a rose tip!
She bought a book back in the 50’s and ended up in shows as these artists did.
Hope you enjoyed the photos sorry it went so long
I was attending a local fair , an agricultural fair .
They had rides set up for children to climb upon.
Many farm animals were being shown by their handlers
with hopes of receiving a Blue Ribbon.
The smells of Fried Dough, and Cotton Candy and Carmel Apples
were down each and every row.
There were tall men well men on stilts.
I was drawn to just one.
This pretty one with her WINGS
She walked beside this artistic little dwelling.
I loved the color and everything going on with it but
when she turned and I saw her wings I knew I needed
to somehow catch up and snap two photos.
You probably had to be there to understand but this was so not
what you would normally see walking about at a fair, where they sheared sheep and milked cows.
Do you like fairs? What’s your favorite part? Got a photo of it? SHARE! lol
It was being hauled by a Yellow Turtle.
