bad news, good news ...

the bad news? 
my tennis team lost today ... playoffs .... eliminated .... season over ... done .... wah! 

the good news? 
back to art as my primary daytime focus ... whew! .... i've been feeling guilt about doing art enough ... and i don't generally DO guilt ... such a waste of energy .....

so ... i even got home from tennis early today .... that's what happens when the pummeling is swift and decisive .... so ... i spent the afternoon puttering in my art studio ... the best thing i did was write a list of the grand things i'm going to do, artistically speaking, tomorrow .....

the other thing i did was work on my cow.... mostly with purple, of all things .... it was too light and bright so dark purple changed it a bit .... i need to work on the face and the pasture tomorrow ...they are both on my list .... 

if you go over to my flickr site, you can see this cow there with all sorts of notes on it when you run your mouse over it ..... 

expect grand art in tomorrow's post .... 
i'll do a grand blog tour tomorrow, as well ... i've been remiss in keeping up with everyone else's art ... go make something fab for me to see .... leave me a message if i need to start my blog hop at your house ...

"I never saw a purple cow........ I never hope to see one...." At least now we see a partial purple cow! "but this I do know anyhow, I'd rather see than eat one" that is a very old saying that my mom used to use - I never really knew why! love her! ooxx

WHY am I too dumb to find your Flickr!? And Why didn't we talk about Project Runway, and WHAT happened on Top Design this week! And WHAT is wrong with Heidi? Does she have a constitutional inability to dump Spencer?

I want to see your cow, and I need a big picture. Help, mommy!

(I'm older than you, but not in behavior.)

OH my friend the cow made it on the blog today -- it is a good day.

I think it looks great -- does he need a home (barn)?

I am trying to think of a good cow name....
