turquoise dog noses and fond fare-thee-wells ....

i am so fortunate! i rarely get to paint on a saturday .... but the smallest e.beck.artist went to a birthday party instead of a soccer game ..... so i was freed up .... then mr.e.beck.artist took the twins out for the morning ..... leaving me home alone ..... well ...with the dog, who dutifully followed me around and nuzzled this turquoise paint:
so, i finished this painting .... it is similar to others i have done ... but all those other tall, thin, turqoisey heart string paintings have sold .... so it seems sensible to make another .... particularly considering i have a show in may .... and in fact, i've done this one for the gallery owner, kristy, to consider for the postcard invitation .... i mostly do squares ... but wanted her to have a non-square alternative ..... it is on flickr .... with a titch of a story that you might like to read .... 

then, you also must know, that i am a blog hopper .... surfing the net, artsy blog to artsy blog .... i was surfing by very mary design and left a comment on a contest .... best comment wins! and i won .... teeheeeee .... so she will be sending me groovy this and thats to include in my art ... you know i'm all into that...... so, go visit very mary ...... 

and last, and maybe least, i'm off .... again .... this time i can tell you before my long blog absence! ..... because i am not leaving an empty home for you to come and burgle ...... (burglars burgle, right? ) .... anyhoo .... i am leaving mr.e.beck.artist at home to tend the three e.beck.artist progeny and dixie the wonder dog ....... where am i going? oh, you remember from when i wrote about it here? perfect ... i won't repeat myself ... i leave tomorrow, sunday ... and return friday, early ...... so expect a post friday, since i'll be arting away all week long in the lovely mountains ..... what could be cooler than art camp ... um ... i mean professional development classes ..... 
tata and tra la la ..... 
miss me!

this and that's indeed! I found some great old cookbook pages and I think they'll be quirky backgrounds for your gorgeous work!

I return and find you away? You'd better be having a blast and return with some new inspiration to share with us! Or, at least some funny stories!
