art and answers ....

i worked on these ten canvases today .....they are the rest of the set of 18 i started last week ..... the first 8 are done ..... these should be done soon ... then i'll do another set of 18, i suppose ... i think in another color scheme ..... 

on to the questions ...... 

28.... 3rdEyeMuse asks : chocolate, strawberry, or vanilla ..... and the answer is vanilla ... i don't like chocolate ice cream ... because it doesn't taste like chocolate to me! strawberry is ok ... but i love vanilla .... but never order it ..... i like cake batter icecream, mint choco chip icecream, cookies and cream icecream, keylimepie icecream .... and i love sherberts and sorbets too ..... i'm definitely an ice cream girl ... came by it genetically ...my parents both adore ice cream ... and i married an ice cream kinda guy too ..... 

29 ..... 3 asks: what scents make you think of summer ..... wind and water beach smell ..... chlorinated hair on my children's heads ..... grilling ....... 

30 .... 3, i did, and i do, play with legos ..... not as much as i did five years ago and 35 years ago .... but on occasion, yes .... and i sure do clean up lego a lot for not playing it every day ..... 

31....3, i believe, wherever carmen sandiego is, she's just there to hide from you ..... 

32.... 3, great questions, favorite card game? i play rat a tat cat the most ... and ruckus ..... and cheater .... and top trumps .... none of those are with a traditional deck of cards ..... but i do play them a TON .... the last card game i played with regular cards was crazy eights ..... the last card game was ruckus (two days ago, three kids, kitchen table)

33.... 3, do you know that my 2007 resolution was to play five hundred games in a year ... and i played 514 with my kids? i am a game guru ..... my favorite board game might be monopoly or life .... i love scrabble .... the last one i played (yesterday) was sequence .....and there is no board, but rummikub is maybe my really truly favorite game .....

34....mind games like i'm messing with you, 3, or my favorite mind game, like you have to think to play it? i'll go with thinking games .... scrabble, rummikub, whonuuu, hit or miss ...... yup .... i'm game for games ..... 

35... mom, cake batter ice cream is just that, ice cream that tastes for all the world like cake batter .... just like the beaters you used to let me lick .....

36  .... lynn asks Oh, did you graduate college with an art degree? And if not, what kind of formal training have you had? .... i graduated from college with a major in art history, a minor in french, and ....just to be overzealous, another minor in anthropology ..... then i got a master's degree and became a teacher .... somewhere in there i did post bac classes in drawing and painting at a local university ..... and i've taken art classes and workshops and such all along too .... i've had a smattering of formal training ... i've had loads of "hobbyist" classes .... and i read and read and read .... i've recently been reading on davinci, picasso, and richard scarry .... ha! do you know who richard scarry is?

37....chris asked a seed bead question .... here's my seed bead answer ... don't ever buy them too small .... they are too hard to deal with!! ... i always try to get ones that are easy to sew on to my canvases .... with tiny, glue is just not reliable ... but, if you need to glue, copious amounts of mat medium will hold anything down ... and e6000 is the strongest glue in the universe... i'm certain that alien visitors left the formula, cause it is certainly not of this world ..... 

38 .... 3rdEyeMuse, who really seems to have enjoyed this game!!!. ..... asked if i have a favorite piece of art .... and i used to ... but now i don't ... i have favorite new ones at the moment .... and some old ones that hold up to my scrutiny better than others ..... but, really, i have three types of paintings ... still LOVE it, still like it, and want to paint over it ......

39 ... 3rd, favorite piece by another? well ....   mona lisa ...   i actually find her lovely and inspiring ... 

whew ...i'm done!! 

tomorrow, i'll study my answers, and pick winners from the various categories ..... 
happy day ....

i LOVED richard scarry when i was a kid. had to beg my mom to read his books which she avoided like the plague because with all of those tiny tiny pictures and words. but that's what i loved about them; each page was a treasure hunt.
