pictures!

this pic is from a couple days ago ... every fall the trees in the median in front of my house turn FLAME red .... lots of people stop and pick up leaves .. this year a family was taking posed photos with the trees ..... little.e.beck.artist asked if she could take a picture of me and the tree ... so there you go ... just by serendipity, i was wearing the groovy toovy scarf that jeannie knit for me .... was it last year? or two years ago ... i feel like i've had more than one winter of wearing it .... but i'm not sure ....
clearly, dixie the wonder dog was not cooperating and smiling for the camera ....

and .... because i was wearing cute shoes, i didn't crop them out .... again ... different shoes though ... 
those are orange lands end shoes ... new this winter .... cute, huh? or .. cute for a girl with a thing for orange shoes ... and those six canvases hadn't been photo'd yet ..... they were done to be teacher gifts .... but i've put these all in a second show... i'd just put price tags and such on them ... i currently have two art displays at two different events ... both run through sunday .... this one below, i set up today .... it is at the episcopal cathedral in atlanta ... about 100 artists i'd guess ..... the proceeds go to supporting work of our hands, an episcopal art ministry ...... 

.... i just took two grids for displaying .. and guessed the right amount to take to hang ... i'm getting pretty good at my estimating how much can hang .... 

below is a collage i did on commission ....the bible verse is from isaiah .... you can read about it on my flickr here ..... it's a sweet little story ... and i'm happier with the end result now that i've seen the buyer's reaction ... i was a titch worried about it ....not confident .... i liked it, but with such specific notions in the buyer's head, you just can't be sure that the art will match the idea .... 
so ... i've been busy ... painting for me .. painting for others .. trying (with so much effort) to be the organized artist who can do two shows at once ........

not sure what art tomorrow will bring ..... but i'm certain there will at least be a bit!

really love the commissioned piece!
Very neat!

I think you have had the scarf 2 years at least.
Need to get you an orange one -- and maybe matching clogs! :)

I like your sweet photo (good job little.e.beck.artist!) - the trees really are lovely ... and seriously love the way the comissioned verse piece turned out.

happy weekend!

I think you need to do more pieces like the commissioned one! bet they would sell if you picked your verses well! Maybe smaller ones like 12x12 or so. Do they make 15x15 canvasses? I think that would be a good size to work on.....

oh, e.beck, artist, you are doing good things. Isn't is great when our friends knit scarves for us? And those LEAVES!

you keep on putting your beauty out there. fun fun, uplifting fun.

love the doodle on your quote piece .. and the christmas tree balls are so cute. it must be so rewarding to do what you do. something new to capture your fancy? you get to follow that fancy to wherever it takes you.
