~I'm Gettin' Chunky~

In The Past I've Only Created...
On Flat Canvas Boards...
Lately I've Been Creatin'...
On Chunky Canvases...
I Find That I Enjoy Them!

The 6" x 6" Size ...
So Far Is My Favorite...
Not Too Big...
Not Too Little...
Bein' So Chunky...
They Look Great Sitting Or Hanging!


If You've Not Tried...
Chunky Canvases...
You Really Should!

Enjoy!

~Things Change~

If Ya Have Watched Any Of My YouTube Videos...
Ya'll Notice Many Times...
I Start Workin' On A Canvas...
Sayin' What It's Gonna Be...
For Instance...
A Couple Of Times...
I Said I Was Workin' On Creatin'...
A "Cow Head"...
Both Times Those Canvases...
Ended Up Being...
Florals...

I Normally Have An Idea...
Of What I'd Like To Try...
But, More Than Not...
The Backgrounds...Lead The Way...

My Latest 2 Canvases...
Proved All The Above To Be True..
I Had Recently Done A...
"Boston Terrier" Canvas...
And Was Gonna Create...
A Couple Of Small "Boston Terrier" Canvases...

After Buildin' Up The Backgrounds...
I Walked Away From 'em While They Dried...
When I Returned...
I Saw THE TWINS!

Definitely NOT Boston Terriers...
LOL

I Have Realized...
Over The Past Year Since...
I Have Started This Journey Into...
Mixed Media...
Just Goin' With The Flow...
Is The Way To Go!!

Enjoy!

~At This Age~

I'll Be 60 This Year...
When I Started Hickety Pickety...
I Was 29...
Back Then All My Business Was Done...
On The Phone Or By Snail Mail...

I Marveled Over When Gals...
Would Call And Order From Me...
And Share That They Were 60 And Older...

I Thought Of Those 60 And Older...
Only Interested In Quilting...
Or Crocheting Doilies...
eeeeeks!

Why I Thought There Was An Age Limit...
On Crafting...
I Guess Because My Own Mother...
Never Had An Interest...
In Fact She Found What I Created...
Really Quite Strange...She Didn't Understand It...
Why Folks Would Want To Clutter Up Their Homes...
With Dolls & Such...
 Dolls That Were Made To Look...
Old & Dirty No Less...lol
 
And Here I Am At 60...
The Age When I Marveled At Those...
Interested In Creating....
And I'm Understanding The Freedom Age Gives One...
In Creating And Other Aspects Of Life...
 
When Folks See My...
I Wonder If  They Would Be Surprised To Find...
That A 60 Yr. Old Gray Haired Gal...
Is Creating It?
 

Enjoy!
