getting ready

tonight, grammy brought us dinner. thank you! and the kids think it is funny that the "grammy's" are on. they don't get it...and they certainly thought Pink's outfit was "inappropriate." yes, my kids are watching tv on sunday night at 8:30....all you waldorf parents. guess i cannot blog and get away with anything anymore!
the art above is my first draft of a painting i plan on doing this month. the church, St. Marks, next to the kids school hosted a masquerade ball this past friday and the tables had beautiful peacock feathers shooting into the heights of the old gorgeous church. then jamie gave me a card to wish me luck and inspire me on this journey...peacock feathers were on the card. and also, on our way home friday night...we stopped by the century ballroom (the place that hosts the beyonce class for next month) so i could show dina...and there was a masquerade ball going on. so many connections. if you are looking for them!
i am picking up a hand carved mahogany easel tomorrow from craigslist. and i didn't know how i was going to be able to buy paints. but pete, my teenage neighbor (an Oliver...they rock!) gave me all these paints and a few canvases. thanks pete!!!!!!! everything comes together when you go toward your life's mission. trust in the process.

Good Luck With That said...

oh and easel..that is a good idea. I think I will stick with the table for now but will think about that. I like your feather..seems peaceful. I have no idea what I am going to do but what I do know is that I am looking forward to opening up those paints tomorrow and just going for it. That makes me happy! XXOO-Dina
