New Art and Give Away

“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.”  -Barbara Bush

What a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday we had!! Time spent with family...visiting, eating, playing, watching movies and shopping. It was pure bliss:) I hope each of you had the very best holiday as well.

Girls, I can't believe it!! I am coming up on my 600th post!! To celebrate I am having a GIVE AWAY!! Whoo Hoo!! More on that later this week.

It's been awhile since I've shown you my latest work. Here are just a few pieces I've finished in the past few weeks.

5x7 canvas

6x6 wood block

8x10 canvas

I am so inspired lately by yellows, aquas, pinks and bright greens. Adding more and more of those colors to my art and loving the results.
I work as the Elementary Art teacher Monday through Wednesday this week and then on Thursday at The Art Experience. Tuesday after school I've invited the 8-11 year old girls over for a Brave jammie party. We are watching Brave, wearing our jammies and munching on treats:)
Friday night is game night with friends and by Saturday I hope to decorate our home for Christmas. Any free time I have this week will be spent working on my Studio. In case you missed it on facebook I am in the process of moving it from downstairs to our top floor. I LOVE it!! There are big windows and a window seat!!! I am taking photos of the entire process process and will share when I am done. It's quite an undertaking but I want to create more and get serious about doing shows...this move will be awesome for my creativity!!!
One more thing...I am soooo excited!! My Mom bought me an early Christmas present this year...the Life Book class!!! I am BEYOND excited!!! Check this amazing class out here.
Girls...have a GREAT week! And stay tuned for my 600th post GIVE AWAY later in the week!!!
What colors keep showing up in your work lately???

And I love that you are taking that Life class. I would LOVE to take part in it, and this might be the push I need. Thinking of you, my friend. Hugs.

  3. So excited for you! Ya gonna love ya new creative space,everything will be inspiring. Just make sure ya have a journal ready, for all those ideas which float in ya head as ya setting up ya new room. Than ya can get to them once ya settled. Believe me ya'll forget them if ya don't write them down. lol
    I've been using alot of Blue, Pink, Yellows in my work. Could be because I'm doing a series of Mary's lately. She's been my muse since 2010. I finally decided to go with it & have given some of my work to the Sisters at work. Have to say they loved them & have been showing them off, which makes me feel so good. Hope ya having a nice day. Can't wait to see the pics.
    Hugs, Poe

  4. Leslie..I'm so happy that your life is moving in the same direction as your dreams. I know that creating, writing and painting are a passion of yours....anyone that reads your words can tell that these are things along with your family (of course) that make you happy. It's exciting to see a dream happen!

    Gorgeous pieces of work too, love the canvas and the colors you are using!
