express yourself ....


i finished this collage today ... on a sunday! ... my week was so crazy that i didn't get a full week's worth of painting done ...so i felt compelled to get in some time today .....  girl.beck.artist was sick for nine days ... i think it's done NOW though .... i guess i'll know for sure tomorrow! .... that was a long fever, huh? 
this piece has been in my studio for months (dare i say more than a year? i don't know) ... and finally today i felt able to finish it ..... rah ... and i'm quite pleased with the happy sentiment ... 

i brought it up to put in the fireplace so i can study it for a bit ... and mr.e.beck.artist (who is forever assigning meaning to my art .. frequently incorrectly) said ... so, we live in that yellow house, huh? ....
me: yes we do, honey! .....  
he: why are our shrubs orange? 

so sometimes he gets it .. but just a titch .... or maybe he's just yanking my chain .... 

my kiddos don't have school monday .... good for the sick one to have one more day off ... not so good for artistic productivity .... 

hope you had a happy weekend ... the weather here was gorgeous fabulous lovely .... and it is a four day weekend for the kids and me ... can't beat that!
