a guessing game

oh my .... i have some interesting things to tell you about .....i'm moving a bit outside of my artsy comfort zone TWICE ......considering my summer is meant to be artfully toned down, i don't know what to make of two BIG things .....

here's the first one .....
go ahead click .... it's a puzzle ... all be it, an easy one .....
didja look?
how 'bout that? i'm gonna do it.....would it be outside your comfort zone? eep! if i think about it too much i get nervous .... so i'm choosing not think about it too much ..... 
did ya figure out what i'm talking about?
wish me luck!!

and here's my second one .....
i've been asked to put two paintings into a show in september .... ok? that's easy, right?
here's the kicker.... the outside the comfort zone thing ... the BIG thing ..... the paintings are supposed to be bigger than 4 by 6 .... that's feet ... bigger than four by six feet .... wow ... that's big! and thus far my biggest canvases have been four by three ... fully half the size of what is expected of me .... twice .....
that's a lot of paint ..... i need to have started last week or something!

wanna hear about my non artsy life? the dog, the kids and i went on two walks today that were miles each (it was unseasonably cool today) ..... i played LIFE with the girls (i had four children in the orange car, and millions of dollars)..... i made a great dinner for my family (fun salads with chicken strips on top, i feel like i won a prize, it was the first time EVER that all three children ate salad and no one complained)..... and i bought my kids books at the bookstore (three of us adore the alex ryder series)......not in that order ..... and that's just the easy, happy highlights ....

happy day to you .... what was your fun?

be a guest? I love puzzles, but I'm not great at all of them. :) that's my guess and I'm sticking to it.

You can definitely handle those two 4X6 pieces. I just know it.

non artsy life sounds splendid!

today was officially my birthday, so honestly, too much fun to share - just know that it was way better than a great day. :)

oh! I almost forgot ... you're a winner!!! shoot me an email with your address. I should have everything ready to go before the weekend is over. :)

see you there! said...

Are you going to be a guest? Say yes!

I know you'll get those bigger paintings done with no problem. You've really accomplished so much lately.

Are you going to be a guest speaker??? Weeeeeee! =)

As far as the giant canvases - I don't think you will have any problem at all. I cannot WAIT to see what you end up painting on them! =)
