Off to Little Rock today to see Ortho about hubby's broken wrist, and back tomorrow for a follow up with the Neurosurgeon. I just hope the weather is nice both days.

I have finally started a big project on two canvas' for a family member. I have put it off for long enough. I haven't ever drawn on canvas, so we will see how this goes.

Wishing you a safe drive to Little Rock.

I spent the weekend hanging out with my grandkids, and exploring the city (San Antonio) a bit for some urban photography shots.

Awesome. That's a pretty spectacular photo.

And that's great news Leighan! I've only painted on canvas a few times, but It was definitely enjoyable. I guess I don't do it often because I'm concerned that if I mess up, I'll ruin the canvas and have to buy a new one.
I'm sorry about your husband, though Prayers that he'll get better soon.

I'm back. We had a great vacation. Today was a bit stressful trying to catch up with everything. Sure hope I can start on some art tomorrow.

I'm not even going to try to catch up with all the posts, I'll just start fresh from now.

Sorry to hear about your husband's wrist LeighAnn. Is the neurosurgeon appointment for your headaches or is it also for your husband? Sending healing thoughts.

Welcome back Terry, did you have a great cruise?

I have been getting so many pics of so many birds! Some I have never seen before and some I have just never photographed before. Haven't been drawing much, really want to,... just having difficulty landing on a subject. With all my new pictures I have nothing to draw?

Safe and successful trips for you Leighann.

Great angle Cricket!

Have a blessed day!

Okay, I can do this,....I am an,....arrr, ....arrr,.....artist!

Thanks Susan. We had a fantastic cruise. It was all about eating and relaxing. I went on the scale this morning and I have gained 6 pounds and my blood glucose has been through the roof. So now it's time to get back to reality and on my diet again.

There was a wonderful art auction on the ship.
Spoiler!
The paintings were more gorgeous than I can describe. Way out of my price range.

I have decided I want to try to do more detail paintings, taking my time and not rushing the brush. I wasn't ready to make that commitment before this but now I am. I really want to strive for doing the best I can and forget about getting it done. I'm considering shutting down the flea market display. Since I raised my rates I haven't sold anything there. People go to flea markets for bargains, not good art. I'm putting some of my work on E-bay again.

Everyone have a wonderful day.

I don't like canvas!!! Drawing on canvas is horrible! I'm so used to a smooth surface, and this is driving me nuts.
I'm doing two 11x17 pieces that are somewhat of a mirror image, and just getting the outline down is taking forever. I also discovered, it's not easy to erase on canvas. All lessons learned I guess.
Once I get the outlines finished, I will post a pic.
Right now, I just want to get these pieces done!!

@TerryCurley ...so glad u had a good time. You were missed.

I am considering filling a swimming pool with coffee. I need it today.

@TerryCurley you sure were missed. Glad to have you back! Are you diabetic? I am an admin on forum community. Let me know if you would like the link.

@leighann I am looking forward to seeing your results. A new challenge is scary at first, but it is always good to learn new things.

@Susan Mulno I used to love to photograph birds. I need to put my bird feeder back up so I can take some new ones.

If the canvas is well primed it's easy to draw on it with graphite or carbon pencil, I've even used pastels for the outline. I put two layers of Gesso on my canvases and sand them down before and after each coating. It makes a world of difference.
