July Give Away X 2 …And Me, As Homework

Well, you may have noticed that I did not do the give away last month. The Postal Strike/Lock Out had me a little on edge and by the time it ended, well, it was July so, this month I am going to have two winners.   TWO  WINNERS!

I decided to pick “Water Lilies Keep Me Cool” because this is the time for long hot summer days, when a cool dip in the lake would be more than a little inviting, right? You would think! But this year, it has been long rainy days, flooding basements and mosquitoes in swarms!  So maybe I am not thinking about water lilies to keep me cool but I wouldn’t mind if the dragon-fly featured in this painting gathered up several hundred of his best buds and ate all the mosquitoes that buzz around me daily as I make a bee line from the  house to  the car.

So, you know the drill. Write me a comment about your long lazy summer days. Go ahead make me jealous, I don’t care. Maybe I will live vicariously through your posts, maybe your weather is worse than mine (but I doubt that is possible). And at the end of the month, I will  draw TWO winners for a 3″x4″ fine at reproduction of  the above image. (These blocks are available on Etsy and at The Art Gallery Of Albert gift shop.)

Next…

So, guess what? I am homework. Yes, HOMEWORK. Several times now, over the last couple of years, I have had requests for my ‘bio’ from school children in the UK. They have told me that they are doing a report on me (I know, ha,ha, it just makes me giggle). Anyway, it is awesome and I thought I would share  the image that Nicole did for her school report. I am sure that you will agree it is very well executed and is a very beautiful piece of art in its own right.

Thanks so much, Nicole, you did a great job! If I was your teacher, I would give you an A+. Keep drawing!

Sometimes, we need a reminder to see the beauty that surrounds us

I am not sure what my reminder was this week

I think that it was a combination of things

Anyway, I am smothered with the beauty that surrounds me on a daily basis

Thank you for that

Thank you for giving me all of this beauty

All you ask of me is to see it

Not too much to ask really

I’ll try to keep my eyes open
