Today Ruth Ann and I found some Tuesday Treasures at our local Goodwill!
I forgot to take a pic of Ruth Ann's basket but she found quite a few things as well!!
This was my favorite!!
A tea chest!
I love signs and these two are already hanging in the gazebo!
That wine cork frame will hold a simple painting soon.
I have never found a purse that really works for me - but I keep trying!
Perhaps that's what Mother is doing with all those house shoes she buys......
Our movie of choice was The Monuments Men - perfect since it involved ART and this is ART DAY!
We started a bluebonnet painting tonight. This afternoon I gathered up the bluebonnet pictures I have painted in years past to refresh my memory! One of the special things about spring in Texas is the bluebonnets!
We gathered around the table about 6:30. The first session of a new project involves the tedious process of laying the palette. Since I freeze it between classes - we only have to do it once!
Ruth Ann is really coming into her own in art!
Sabrina has so much talent! She is a pretty amazing artist!
My daughter in law joined us tonight!
She is a natural!! She has an artist's eye for composition and color.
I knew she would be great!!!
We had the best time tonight!
I put out a plate of sliced brisket, smoked cheese (made by my DIL!) and crackers to snack on along with a pitcher of strawberry mint tea.
Sherry's sister, Cindy, was our cheerleader!!
Tonight we laid the palette, put on our pattern and based in the entire canvas.
After we finished everyone pitched in and put the dining room back to rights!
Except for the lingering smell of the oils and turpentine, you would never know we had been there!!
It's been a wonderful Tuesday!
Louis Dean has rested a good bit. He did the odd and end jobs around here- taking out the trash, unloading the last things in the truck, picked up prescriptions at the pharmacy, watched a little TV.
I like looking at the dining room pic!
Come Easter Sunday I will have all my children sitting around that table!!
It will be the first time for them all to be together in years!!
