Here are another two shots from last weekend's "Dress up and Act out" session at Nana's House. I'm not sure who has the most fun, my grand daughter's or myself. You never know what is going to happen next when you have willing kids and an artsy Nana! lol

I love that my Grand Daughter's love to dress up! To me there is nothing "funner" than to dress up and step into the imagination of young children. The girls were at the house last weekend and they decided to dress up, choosing the dress themselves and I suggested instead of just taking photos they act out little stories. We had so much fun! I promised them that this week I would put backgrounds to their photos to match some of the stories they had. The backgrounds are taken from the internet but they were posted as free and I'm not reselling these photos or anything so I think it's ok just for this purpose.

Not really sure why I decided to do this. Perhaps it was encouragement from friends and fellow artists that have done it. Perhaps it was seeing the self portrait show at the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh! For me the question was should I wait until I become a better painter or do it now before I get wrinkles! Ha! I'm not finished yet but thought I'd share with you. Of course I had to be in silk my favorite thing to paint!

Sorry, I have been busy and not updated my blog like I should.
Above is a photo of me and the band Clanadonia in Glasgow
that I took when I was home in October. Tu Bardh is not wearing
his hat but I think you will recognize him from the painting.
Back from my trip home to Scotland and busy
sanding panels for painting this winter.
This underwater painting is for Sale!
I took photos of me with the painting to
show the scale of the painting.
This is a photo taken from our house.
Life on the lake!
This painting of Tu Bardh is for Sale!
This painting of the Tupelo Civic Ballet is for Sale!

I love creative quotes. The top photo is one I took in Glasgow
at the Gallery of Modern Art. I love art of all kinds but
I also found it humerous that the only photo I took was one of
their window. Art indeed is everywhere.
The bottom quote applies to Canvas too!
