One last thought when I should be sleeping. It's amazing when you travel, and return home, how you start to notice the beauty of everything in your own world. The trees are starting to turn here and driving home I noticed the beautiful lit up church steeple by my house.

I even got a few while landing in Portland of the nighttime skyline. I thought of the picture that Alli now has...the one above labeled "City Lights." I may paint another one of those.
I will leave you with a picture of Portland (not of mine since I don't have my cable).

This is MY NEW FAVORITE TOY. And thanks to Hobby Lobby it was $14 WITH tax. (Yes, I have been visiting daily this week with my 40% off coupon in tow.) I've heard these existed before but I had no idea they were in the isle NEXT to my canvasses.
I know. It could be considered as cheating but I like to think of it as clever. This is one of the little things in life that makes me happy!

After today I don't think I am in the right line of work. Lets just say that I may need to start training to be a PLUMBER! I paid one a fortune today. Let's just say I could have bought well over 10 of these canvasses!

They helped me research in preparation for next year's show and offered great ideas/advice. It made for a fabulous day. (Speaking of, you could not have asked for a better day.) For those of you that are confused, this time last year I went to the Bluff Park Art show for the first time and decided I would make it a goal to exhibit. I missed the '08 cutoff so I plan to do it in '09.
I'll be honest. I was a bit intimidated. The crowds this year didn't help. (It's good to have a lot of traffic, right?) Well, they have to accept me first. I don't want to look like a beginner. I was told to look into Moss Rock Festival. That weekend is already pretty booked for me this year. I NEED to do subsequent "research." I WILL find a way to make it back...at least for a little while...I hope.
More to come. I got motivated after the show (big surprise) and bought a few more canvases today. Oh, and my art room is taking shape. I keep waiting to post pics. This afternoon I recovered cushions and finished Carol's calligraphy to college football. Yes, I watched football. FOR MANY HOURS. Maybe I should go take my temperature...
