They are really a lot of fun. I decided I wanted to paint the pattern of the socks, not the socks. And, it was exciting because they have sparklies and it gave me an opportunity to paint sparklies. I didn't capture the intensity of the magenta. They are truly something that "shows" when I where them. Thanks, Carrie, for giving me something to celebrate the fun side.

Well, it can never be too often. Just in time for my holiday festivities. I got this beautiful candlelit arrangement from Virginia. It really added to the warmth of a great time with a houseful of daughters, grandchildren, my brother, sons in law, and a Japanese exchange student. It was a lot of fun and, as readers of this blog know, we also assembled a family art show.
Virginia also gave a "little extra" to help with art supplies. Well, she always says it's for whatever I want, but I know I will spend it on art supplies! I already bought a dvd that goes with a book I already had about Expressive Figure Painting. Very inspirational!!! Having fresh flowers always is, too. I did this a week or so ago, but am behind on my blogposts. I'll send this card to her with a thank you note.
