Working Weekend

So the weather has turned back to it's alternate personality which is cold for today and Sunday is suppose to be warmer.  The Painter has started on some new paintings for the weekend.   He is repurposing some of his old canvases, which I think is pretty cool... I'm still really liking this one.  This is my sell something Saturday one.  I posted it on eBay too. Enjoy the weekend all of you artist out there.  Remember it's always good to create something beautiful.  Blessings...

Monday’s Masterpieces

Good Monday morning to everyone.  Wow, what a Super Bowl Sunday that was.  Oh yes we watched it from kickoff to entire game into a crazy OT !!!  OMG I can't believe that's how it turned out.  The lesson from that is never, never quit.  It ain't over, til it's over...  Anything is possible.  Okay enough already.  I was busy getting ready for the big game this weekend, planning menu's, grocery shopping and then cooking on Super Bowl Sunday.  Really...

Monday’s Masterpiece

Woo Hoo the sun is out !!!  OMG I got up to see the sun because it hasn't been out for 8 days straight.  It was so pretty, but alas the afternoon comes and I guess that's when the clouds are suppose to arrive and they did.  I'm not going to complain because the sun will come back I have faith it will... The weekend went by so quickly as usual, but the Painter was hard at work on his...

Monday’s Masterpiece

Good Monday afternoon.  I know Monday's it just takes a bit to get me going...Besides it's a cloudy, damp & foggy, winter day in the Midwest...Can we get a little bit of sun maybe.  I have a new picture from the painter this weekend and he finished up with his one from last week.  A few changes and he gave it a new name which is huge for him because he doesn't like to name them, I don't know why.  Here's last...

Another Weekend/Another Masterpiece

Yes this is what he does on his weekends.  I don't even mind because he does it with such a passion.  He is a suit all week long, his day job.  That keeps a roof over our head, a kitchen full of food and a car with a full tank of gas.  Plus we can go out to the movies, or a nice dinner. I'm so glad though he can still pursue his passion.  I love watching the progression.  Here's...

Shake it Off Sunday

Good Sunday Morning to all of the Art Lover's out in the world.  I've been away for a bit, really just keeping on life and wouldn't you know it I look up and it's the Holidays, OMG.  So me and the Artist have been working on some fun things for the Holidays. The painting, "Shake it Off" is hanging up at our Vet's office, VCA.  We also have been doing some holiday painting's that can be turned into Christmas...

Pumpkins

Yes dear performer's it's fall.  When September started, I was told to "Put the Pumpkins down, move away from the pumpkins :) "  But today it is definitely okay to buy some pumpkins...It's cloudy with rain and chilly.   This is my favorite time of year.  This is when I wish I lived in New England.  We love, love, love all of the fall colors.  It is beautius, that's my made up word for beautiful.  There is a calmness,...

Metal Music & The Painter’s Wife

I do wear many hats.  I am a wife, mother, grandmama and so on.  Homemaker, Chef, Housecleaner and yes a Blogger who is also a Metal Momma !!  I love my life.  I have made it exactly how I want it.  A lot of it is great, sometimes life gets in the way.  When that happens, you just push it aside.   Time is too important to waste on the life's little aggravations.   Did I tell you we sold 2...
