BE PREPARED TO BE AMAZED, TO GAWK IN WONDER, TO SCRATCH YOUR HEAD IN CONFUSION, OVER WHAT YOU WILL FIND HERE…..:))
Let the Randomness Begin:
Newest favorite fall weather treat?
Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter. Served on toast (spread with real butter) and hot tea
Get on the Ball:
Guess what I rec’d at my last workshop?
Half a tennis ball.
I didn’t know what to make of it either—not that I would have been any more impressed with an entire tennis ball, seeing’s how I am not exactly a fitness nut .
(FYI– when it comes to sports, I was always one of the last one’s chosen for teams in school….the groans were audible from the side that got stuck with me….somehow the eye/hand coordination that helps me paint did NOT translate to anything that involved a ball…)
Valee (the gifter) informed me that the half tennis ball was to be placed in my palm and used to scrub my brushes in so that my skin wouldn’t be the recipient of paint/turps.
I am proud to say….it works like a charm!
- Dip my brush into my medium or vegetable oil
- Work out excess paint on glass palette
- Wipe with paper towel (this usually takes several passes to get the heavy stuff out)
- Murphy’s Oil Soap
- Winsor and Newton Brush Cleaner (this stuff is great for getting older paint out)
- Dawn Dishwashing Liquid
What’s cool is now I can go to THE BIG SPORTING GOODS STORE and fake like I am a serious tennis player deciding which ball is going to serve up my best game;))
Brief and to the point–chain smoking as applied to your creative side is a good thing!

And yes, the headstone below is real. Obviously they have/had a sense of humor like you and me…a bit off the beaten path;)
And before you ask, it’s in Kentucky and that’s all I have to say about that;)
The Beauty of Simplicity:
What I love about this, besides the good vibes and awesome song—is the proof that simply being ourselves connects and produces things that touch the heart.
