"The Three Bird Abodes" and other stuff...

"The Three Bird Abodes" acrylic on canvas  20" x 20"
Hello! What's been going on? It's been a great Summer so far! The above painting was done at  Jane Slivka's workshop at Cheap Joe's in Boone, NC. Great time and a lot of inspiration gained from that week! We painting two 16" by 20" paintings a day.... a day!  Thanks Jane! Thanks Joe!

I don't know how many of you know, I do love to play golf. I've had my challenges this season and a few of them, well, I've done okay. Below is a photo from last weekend's State Tournament in Indiana and I won Low Net Senior! Woo hoo! Sorry Myra... no money earned, just hardware, lol!

One last note for this post. I committed to the Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days September 2015. I've signed up in the past for this but didn't follow through.... this year I've decided to paint martini's because I should, so I will! ....and now I've said it out loud on this blog, this means... total commitment! 

With that, as my nephew Victor says, "Just remember, always smile".

Enjoy your day,

Nice painting! I like the warm underpainting peaking through. And congratulations on your golf award! We need to do lunch this month, since you will be busy daily in September. :)

This post makes me so happy. Nice to see your pretty, smiling, trophy-holding self JanettMarie! Your birdhouse painting is super charming...how wonderful you attended the workshop. I know I enjoyed the workshop I did this summer here my hometown with Julie Ford Oliver.

Best of luck with the 30 day challenge! Excited to see your martinis. You do series paintings so well and funly. Wait, funly isn't a word, but you know what I mean.

Love the birdhouse painting! Sounds like a great workshop.
Congratulations on the golf trophy. That's very cool
And I can't wait to see the martini series. Should be fun to paint ... and to drink! (Hmm, maybe I should do a chocolate series ....)

Congrats on the golf trophy!
And good luck on the 30 in 30. I did it last year and it was an amazing experience.
