Dust Storm

Absolutely blows me away. I have never seen anything like it over the city before, well not this bad. It is oppressive. The red dust have blown up from Western Australia. I have to wear my mask, as I am wheezing.. :-(

Hey up everyone..

It is far too quiet around here.... :)

What have you been painting? Drawing? Doing??

Okay...I am no good at this!

There once was a fellow name Hugh
Who went to town on a mule
But it started raining and
The sky started falling so
He had to go home on a boat!

Me and my bright ideas...

I can't think of a thing out of my limerick to paint. Help!

I can see one thing in Anne's and one thing in Ree's I would paint.

My feelings last ....

I love the color yellow and how it makes me feel so I had a quick search about it on the internet and found out a little more about it .....

Yellow symbolizes: wisdom, joy, happiness and intellectual energy.
Put some yellow in your life when you want clarity for decision-making, relief from 'burnout', panic, nervousness, exhaustion. It also aids sharper memory and concentration skills and gives protection from lethargy and depression during dull weather.
On the downside ......people lose their tempers more often in yellow rooms, and babies will cry more. It is the most difficult color for the eye to take in, so it can be overpowering if overused..... so I won't be painting a whole room yellow!!!

I saw a big yellow lily painting on Wetcanvas and I decided to paint myself a big yellow flower .....
30" X 28"

Here it is above my computer ....


You must choose one word from the limerick you wrote and make a painting out of it.

Oh, and, I don't mean paint the word literally..:p

Post the painting Monday 14th.

Horrible Timing

I'm so sorry I'm late on my limerick, ladies. It's been busy here. If it's not drunk friends taking my attention, it's packing up the house and taking care of dogs. I haven't really even been able to touch a pencil the last couple of days. I think I may have to take some time away to get things done here at the house. We're still waiting to find out when we're moving, and our kids are missing us like crazy (I'm missing them much more though). Once we get a date, it's probably only going to be about 2 weeks from the day we get hubby's orders. So, basically, we're trying to get everything packed and ready that we're not using or is not a necessity before we get the date. Plus, I"m looking to go back to college, so that's yet another thing I'm dealing with here (online since I don't have time to go to a traditional university). So, until everything slows down some, I think I need some time. Once we get moved and settled in our new house (halfway across the country), I can join back in, if you ladies are still happy to have me. :) Until then, I'm going to miss you all. If you need to chat, or just want to, JJ has my messenger info and I'd be happy to hear from you. :D

JJ's Limerick

There was a lady named Anne

She was watching Ree climb a span

When Ree's pants split

Anne had a fit

and Ree's face went dead pan

My Limerick

There once was a young man called Eddie
For fun ....he was ever ready!
He slipped on some ice
It didn't feel nice
Now Eddie isn't so steady!
