I started my art journey painting houses, barns and trees. My daughters once asked me if that was all I knew how to paint! At that time YES it was because I was taking lessons from a local artist that painted landscapes but hopefully I have extended my artistic ability. I wanted to share my last attempt to paint trees which was plein air. I haven't as of yet tried to paint a landscape using my colored pencils but that is for another day.


Would like to invite you to share your TREES and join the fun! See you next Tuesday!

In Found Round and About's challenge this week is TEMPTING!!! Boy have I got a good explaination for what is tempting for me; EVERYTHING to do with art! I even will stay at home so I will not stop by Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Sometimes I even stay off the computer because Amozon, Dick Blick, and Jerry's Artaroma becon me to see what I NEED! If you were to look in the closet beside my work area you would ask what dosen't she have in there and what could she possibly NEED?

This is just part of my lastest result of TEMPTING things. For Christmas I gave into temptation and bought myself some more (different brand) colored pencils, pastel pencils, water soluable pencils and paper to try them out on! Then I borrowed a book from the library and decided I needed that for my library of art books. So you can see what is TEMPTING is for me.


So this is what I do with my TEMPTING things. Enjoy and share your TEMPTING things. Until next Tuesday!

Tuesday's TICKLE

This week in the FoundRoundandAbout Challenge the word was TICKLE. It really does not take much to tickle me so for this challenge I will share a story and picture of our two Jack Russel Terriers, Jackson and Abbye.

As you can see our Abbye is on the sofa with not a care in the world for what her little brother was up to. Jackson was in Daddy's lap having a licking good time with Daddy's neck! This was enough to tickle me but was even better when the further Daddy reclined his recliner the more Jackson would lick Daddy's neck making the situation funnier!

Well  that is my TICKLE episode for this week can't wait to see what next Tuesday the "T" word will be! Join the fun and share your perspective of TICKLE! Check out the challenges at FoundRoundandAbout.
