Almost all of my cut floral pendants are gone, so I decided to work on a simple group of those. I enjoy wearing and get lots of compliments on my daisy with the lime green center, so I created three of those. I did a few other color variations and used some scraps to created a red and black piece. It was good to get back up and running!

It is good to have a day to stop and remember. We are so busy and life is often hectic. We take so much for granted. In this country, we have so much. We have virtually unlimited freedom to believe, to think, to speak our mind. Facebook and blogs like this are a living testament to our ability to say anything at anytime. It doesn't mean we have the right to be heard, or that what we say will be met with universal acceptance - but we can say it!Today, I am especially thankful for the men and women who stood up for our freedom. They sacrificed everything for people they knew and would never know. They fought and died far from home, compelled by the belief that what they were engaged in was right and true, and for the benefit of the greater good.

I am still enjoying playing around with the "Paper" app. Yesterday, I created the piece above. It's called "Time and Space."
I've also downloaded an app called "Sketchbook Pro" - it has a lot more functionality than "Paper." So, it also has a bigger learning curve - I'm anxious to experiment with it when time allows.

We stayed in a hotel that practically sits on the runway at Hartsfield International. It was pretty inside, kind of a late 70's early 80's style - big open atrium, stair stepped floors...reminded me of the Hyatt in DT Greenville. Fortunately, they soundproofed the inside, so we really didn't hear any of the airplanes taking off and landing.
It has worked out well, aside from the decrease in sales, that I don't have any shows scheduled for a while. I've been helping to paint murals in the newly renovated nursery wing at our church.
We have so many super talented people that attend, and one of them is a wonderful interior designer. She has done a great job planning the decor - including creation murals in each room.
I love what she has done with this...very clean designs with the corresponding verse of scripture included. So far, we have worked on only two of the four rooms, but they are coming along really nicely!

I did a few with glass in various shades of brown and orange. Then I decided to pull out my Glassline paints and do some painted ones.
