Pics Pics Pics

Another busy week down and it's finally Friday...Yay!  I have been working all week and finally (ahem) got my camera back.

So, I would love to share with you all some pics from the last couple of weeks.  Remember Stacy from Magic Love Crow?  Here's the awesome painting I won from her blog giveaway a few weeks back.  I am a bit late posting this, Stacy...So Sorry!  But here it is and I hope you enjoy.  I have it in my front entranceway with my other 2 favorite pictures.

I also received in the mail a gorgeous poster that I will have to frame!  I participated in a fundraiser by doing a painting a on  6x6 inch tile for the Mosaic for Mental Health.  It was hard to get a really good picture so I took several.

Every little square is a different painting from a different artist.

Aren't these fabulous?  I love how there is so much color!

So much great art here.

If you look closely you can see my grapes in the middle of this one :)

There is everything here from abstract to realistic, anime to impressionist style.

   There is so much amazing work here.  I would have loved to have been there.  Maybe next year :)

Every year at my workplace, we raise funds to "adopt" a less fortunate family for Christmas.  This year we are selling tickets on a huge basket of goodies.  Everyone was asked to bring something in for the basket, so I hand painted  some wine glasses... I tried to make them funky and fun.  
I hope everyone has a great week! Next I'll be posting a pic of my work in progress...It is still a work in progress but slowly coming along :)

Excuses and I'm Lost Without My Camera!

Did everyone turn their clocks back?  I don't think Daylight Savings time is buying me any time...It's been quite a while since I posted!  I am, in fact, shocked at how fast the time has been passing, even with our clocks turned back :)  Seems there is always something crazy going on these days.  

So what's been going on that's been keeping me so busy?

First, I have to tell you about this wonderful little item I received in the mail....I can't even tell you how thrilled I was to open up  this happy painting by Stacy at Magic Love Crow.  Stacy is always so upbeat and her blog always has something fun and new going on.  She also has the best giveaways, too!

So before Halloween, Stacy had a giveaway for Magaly's All Hallows Grim Party, and guess who won...I did!

This happy little 6x6 inch painting is going right in my hallway so everyone can see it.  Isn't it adorable?

I should have a photo of it on my wall but...Part of the reason why I haven't posted lately is because my camera is on the missing list.  Well not really missing, I just left it in my locker at work.  

I've been working on a painting.  I was planning on doing a step by step of the painting process, but *sigh* my camera is at work.  Yeah, I know I already said that, right?  Okay, I can't post the work in progress, but I will show you the original photo that I'm working from...

Is that an incredible photo, or what?  My grandfather came from Poland around 1910.  He worked at the steel plant for most of his life.  Before you could get on in the plant, you had to "earn your dues" in the rail is my Papa earning his dues.  He is sitting in the front row, furthest to the right.  He is looking down.  They look like such hard workers, don't they?  But check out that guy in the looks like he has a shovel in his hand and he's about to bop the guy in front!
