bingo flowers ....

this is the collage that i finished today ... on one of the four backgrounds that i did last week ....
it is  12 inches square ..... i went a bit dotty spotty .... with yellow dots ... that i think are pollen or seeds or buds .... the red disks are poker chips ... their yellow circle centers are wooden bingo markers with the same yellow paint ..... and the bingo numbers are from a vintage bingo set ..... cheery flowers, eh?

this next pic is of the next painting that i'll probably finish tomorrow ... i did orange spots and got the first coat of orange paint on the bingo markers ..... so, it'll be similar to the first painting... but with orange pollen instead of yellow ...... 
i've been a happy blogger lately .... two blog posts ago i asked for website advice ... i got nine comments and LOADS of emails back and forth .... lots of advice and things to think about ..... that's why i blog .... well, one of the reasons ... the feedback ... the nice helpful things folks have to say .... the regulars! ... so ... if you are one of my regulars? thanks for that! 

this morning, we had two play dates over .... little.e.beck..artist had her best pal over...best pal painted a penguin with a purple spotty egg on a snowy plain under a sunshine and lavender clouds ...... while little.e.beck.artist finished this project as a gift for ME .....
she painted a lavender wooden box last week .... but my fluid acrylics didn't all fit in ..... so she painted another one ..... it is a work of art .... turquoisey green and orange with lots of drawings and messages on it .... 
this next drawing is my favorite ..... it is me after i get two more dogs ... apparently little.e.beck.artist thinks i need two more dogs .....
girl.beck.artist also had a pal over ... and they went to town on canvases ... acrylics and collage and lots of laughing .... so ... the studio was crowded .... and i didn't get too much accomplished ... but it sure was fun ..... 

what have you been doing for fun .....

diggin the dotty spotti-ness in both yellow and orange!

hmmm ... does reading "the Patriots Handbook" count as fun. No. shucks. I didn't think so ... at least it's informative (if not really, really dry) ... oh! I'll have a bowl of ice cream! that'll be fun. :)

loving the bingo flowers - reminded me to ask -- did my lovely fish with the little bottle cap fishies sell at the gallery -- the grass in this one made me think of that one??

oh I think little e.beck wants a dog for each kid -- and you do all the upkeep

I like the dots. I'm big on dots. You could probably say I am little dotty, myself. Just don't say it too loud.
Fun stuff happening out there!!
