18 x 24 Divided By 4

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Aiiiiiiii!! I just spent half an hour on this post and blogger had "troubles"  and it's gone - please, why have the save button if it isn't anywhere to be found?!? 
Ok, that off my chest.  
I am swapping art papers, you paint or alter a large piece of paper, I used an 18 x 24  then cut it into 4 pieces for 4 different people, none are to be smaller than 7 x 10. Well, after some gesso and pieces for texture, more gesso, more texture, some paint (and more gesso)  I even broke out the shoe polish and got.................mud? I keep looking at them thinking maybe it's ok. I mean if I got this piece of paper I think I could rip it up to be used for something cool - eh?  Perhaps I'll work on them yet. Whats worse is I have 3 more to do. I think I'll stick with my acrylics for the rest.
So upon feeling a bit defeated in the art department my husband placed a request for a trip to the local farm & fleet (Tractor Supply...whatever it's called in your neck of the woods) and I went simply because I decided I needed to step away from the art supplies.
As some know who have been here in the last weeks it's been warm enough to get into my garden for a bit of work. Well, I prefer to be sans shoes almost all the time if I can get away with it - not good for digging in the dirt.
So on our trip to this farmers haven (we do not live on a farm and I have no idea why my husband likes to visit this store) I found these pink rubber clogs! On SALE! Yes, some days can turn out perfectly.
So to honor my sweet pink goodies that slip off with a flick of the ankle might I entertain you with a bit of other pink - Pink Floyd perhaps??
Tickled pink and wishing you were here.................at the Shores

Hi Andrea! Thanks for stopping by! I was looking at these pictures and thought they were some aerial photographs or some interpretations of them. Definitely something landscape-ish. I like them :)

And thanks for the Pink Floyd, it was nice!

(dear Blogger, I had to rewrite this comment, too)

I like them! Great for backgrounds.

Love the clogs! I wear Crocs when I garden.

Someone had trouble posting on my blog yesterday too. I don't know what's going on!

Andrea - LOVE your new blog design!
I would rather be barefoot too. Anywhere, anytime!! However, I do love your pink shoes.
Happy gardening!
