Sometimes it’s just a test

Sometimes I paint something just to see if I can. Bird’s nests are hard and I don’t know why it is. My friend recently painted a bird’s nest and I had to catch myself from touching the canvas it looked that real.

I had taken some pictures a few years back of a robin’s nest that was constructed on the railing of our deck. It allowed me some great photos. I decided I would try again to paint a bird’s nest. This one is small. 4″x4″. I am pleased. It does get better to paint it more than once. That doesn’t mean it is easier. New Life

Harry Potter

I love Harry Potter. I read all of the books and have seen all of the movies. What I love about the story line is the creativity. J.K. Rowling has such a create mind that I highly respect and envy.  There is a Harry Potter Festival October 20-22, 2017 in Jefferson, Wisconsin. I’m going with my youngest son. Neither of us have ever been 

So what to wear to a H.P. Festival?  If you know me it will require painting something. I painted a shirt that  I got from Goodwill. I hope you approve. 

I’m wearing my new shirt. It’s orange which is more fall than Harry Potter.   But the stenciling is all Harry!
