Farmer Couple

Sorry I forgot to post last week. Days are going so quickly, I keep forgeting to post. Granted, when the kid is at home and not in daycare, I tend to not know which day of the week it is.
Randomness:
  • the kid was back in daycare this week but got the sniffles today and stayed at home.
  • we went clothes shopping and I spent way too much money. Now I need to lose weight to fit into them because they're all strechy and my fat rolls show too much. :)
  • cue in the juice fast I'm on since yesterday because I just have to do something to restart my metabolism.
  • my grandma is coming for a visit tomorrow. It was funny, because she's hard of hearing, she can't talk on the phone, so she sent a letter saying she's bored to death. :))) We're driving tomorrow to her place to bring her here.
  • we have new neighbors. We haven't met them yet because the weather has been foggy and rainy and I haven't seen them outside.
  • I have 3 photobooks to catch up on. Luckily, I already selected the photos, now I need to put it all in the program to make a photo book.

Witches with familiars

The latest stunt my kid pulled was swallowing a pebble. As a toddler he didn't have a habit of putting stuff in his mouth but now at 3 and a half years, he keeps chewing things. And as it was bound to happen, he accidentally swallowed a pebble while we were on the playground. Of course there's nothing to do but wait until he poops it out. Not that I'll be checking.

How was your week?

Witch's Cauldron RR

Round Robin is a set of 3 cards which one artist starts, send to another to add something to the set and then sends to the third artist to finish everything. Each artist keeps a card that's why there are 3 in a set.

MissM started this one with the cauldron, DeniseMDupree added the spider and gravel and I finished with the hand holding the eyeball and the kitty.

Hey guys! Guess what? My kid's got chickenpox. I bet you envy me, right?! That's sarcasm, if anyone is confused.

Kid's going to be home for the rest of the month. That makes is 4 (FOUR) days in total he spent in daycare this MONTH. And it's only October. I can't even phantom what will happen in winter months. Why am I even paying daycare, if he's home sick all the time?

Anyway, hope you're having fun wherever you are.

Catz and Mice Round Robin

Round Robin is a set of 3 cards which one artist starts, send to another to add something to the set and then sends to the third artist to finish everything. Each artist keeps a card that's why there are 3 in a set.

MissM started this one with the cats, I added the mice and BexMadeMe finished with the cheese.

I'm having some skin moles removed today. Wish me luck all goes well.

With flowers in their hair

Well, these girls might have fabulous hair but I don't since my kid decided to play a hairdresser with me.

I was sanding down a fence and the kid decided to play with scissors. I didn't even notice him cutting my hair. He told me himself really casual, mom I cut your hair. And I didn't even believe him until I pulled hair out of my pony tail.

Yeah, this is his pout when I told him off.

Acrylic pour painting #12 - double ring pour


Randomness:
  • This is one of my earliest acrylic pour paintings. I really like it, so I thought I'd share with you.
  • My little pooch got a haircut and she's happy about it.
  • Kid is addapting to daycare. He still has a bit of anxiety but he's happy when he's there. And he finally started eating there. 
  • Unfortunately he caught a cold again and has been home since yesterday.
  • I took a work out class yesterday and I'm so out of shape it's not even funny. 
  • In other news, one of my mom's cats died this week.

Foxes

Randomness:
  • Last week my computer broke. I think it was a virus and I had to get it fixed, that's why there was not post last week. 
  • The kid went back to daycare after being ill for a week and it was an all around disaster. I'm just so frustrated with this whole thing. If it's this hard getting him to daycare now, I don't even want to think about teenage years.  
  • To top it all, the first day he ate breakfast at daycare, he got a rash on his chest. He has a dairy allergy and I checked with the cook about his breakfast but it was the same thing he eats at home, so I have no idea where the reaction came from. 
  • I have to take my little pooch for a haircut and I have to schedule an appointement for myself to get some birthmarks removed but I have to sort out this daycare fiasco with my kid first.
  • I'm just emotionally exhausted.

Rainbow colors

Randomness:
  • It was kid's first week in daycare. It went well. Only he woke up with fever and a runny nose today, so we're staying home.
  • I'm still learning guitar.
  • I'm also doing acrylic pours but I'm not happy how they're turning out lately. It's discouraging to waste paint.
  • Grandma is visiting and we celebrated her 89th birthday last weekend.

Big hair ladies & a guitar

Guess what I'm doing these days. ... I'm learning how to play a guitar at 40 years old. LOL

I always wanted to learn how to play instruments but found it hard because I thought you have to go through theory first and that was tedious.

However, I recently found an online course that had some free videos to check out before purchase, and I found it interesting and easy the way they were teaching.

Of course that got me excited, and I had to buy a guitar so I could learn how to play it. It's been over a week and I love it.

Oh, and I just recently realized that I'm considered a middle aged woman now. That's a whole melt down of its own. How are you doing these days?

Acrylic fluid art painting - blow painting technique w/ straw

I really liked how wispy this painting turned out until I went to photograph it after it dried and I found that a fruit fly landed in the wet paint. It made little circles behind when it tried to save itself. I zoomed in on the trail in the video below. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Frida Kahlo ATCs

Randomness:
  • I'm struggling with creativity lately. I'm not satisfied with the way my art turns out. Luckily I have some old ATCs on the back burner that I can whip out for a blog post. Although, I'm not sure about the third Frida.
  • I'm slowly preparing the kid for daycare in September. He's still not keen on it but hopefully we'll do better than last year's fiasco.
  • It's hot. But I love summers because of salads and fruit. Luckily, my kid agrees.
  • I need to go out more. I feel like a hermit. I don't think I can afford another vacation but I sure would like to go on one again.
  • What are your plans for the rest of summer?

Acrylic pour painting - slanted / tilted pour w/ ribbon pour (wing pour fail)

I attempted another wing pour but I over-tilted and lost the wings, so I did a ribbon pour with a contrasting color to make up for it.

Hope everyone is keeping cool in this hot weather and having a great weekend. :)

Orange Catz & R.I.P. Roadie

Another one of my pets died. My very first and the oldest cat Roadie. She was 17 years old and she had kidney failure, the same as Bolha who died in February. She was the alpha cat and my favorite. I'll miss her.

Rainbow cards

Randomness:
  • Tonight, Friday 27th of July, is the full moon total lunar eclipse in Aquarius. If you're into astrology you probably already looked it up what it means for you. I'm Aquarius sun, so I'll be feeling it for sure. 
  • We've been slowly painting the walls downstairs and redecorating. It looks fresh and it changes up the energy. We need some of that fresh energy.
  • Consequently, while mom and I were otherwise occupied, the kid decided to paint paving stones in the front. He got this idea when the other day I tried to occupy him by "drawing" roads with water and a painting roller. Luckily it rained not long after and we managed to get most of it off but not all.
  • We're dog-sitting one of the neighbor's dogs over the weekend. She doesn't want to stay the night here with us, so we only bring her here during the day and she sleeps at her own home. It's next door's, so it's no big deal.
  • How are you these days? What are your plans for this weekend?

Feather for our Kato R.I.P.

Our family dog Kato died last Saturday. He was 12,5 years old Karst Shepherd. This year is just full of death in our family. First my husband dies and then one of our cats, Bolha, on the day of husband's funeral. My dad died two months ago and now our dog Kato.

I know it's all part of life but it's hard all at once. And the hardest part is explaining all of these deaths to my 3 year old. He didn't understand what death is when his dad died. When his grandfather died he understood he's not coming back and was sad and even cried at the funeral.

It's hard to explain to him when he asks "why?".

Mermaids RR

I started this Round Robin with the mermaid's tail, Linda4atc completed the mermaid and BexMadeMe finished it all with the background.

I'm back from vacation and the kid and I had a great time. We went to Zakynthos, Greece. This was his first flight and I didn't know how he's going to react but he did just fine. The only thing was on the return flight when he fell asleep, because it was 10 p.m., his ears hurt when we were descending. On the way there he was awake and he was talking the whole time so the pressure in his ears didn't bother him as much.

He also didn't want to go into water. He preferred throwing rocks in the sea. He said the water was too cold for him. We'll see next year how he feels about it. He's definitely not a mermaid material. :)

Fluid art string pull flowers and poppy

I decided on a spur of the moment to go on vacation with my kid. He's 3 years old and I've never gone on vacation with him alone. It was scary to think about it but I figured I'll need to do it eventually unless we're staying at home until he grows up. My mom can't join us as she has to take care of our dogs and cats and chickens.

I got this idea on Friday really late at night and on Saturday I made reservations and gone through myriad of obstacles to pay for it. I succeeded after an hour and a half and we're boarding the plane on Monday afternoon.

This is a pre-scheduled post and we're hopefully enjoying the sun as you read this. I'll report how it all went when I get back. In the meantime enjoy this video of making the above painting with my kid's help. I had to edit a bit because I widened the camera angle and there was a lot of crotch shots. :)

Purple hair girl

Hello lovelies! How did the full moon treat you this week? I had trouble sleeping on the full moon. First I couldn't fall asleep, then my kid woke me up and then my dogs. It was like I wasn't sleeping at all with all the interruptions.

I had a job interview yesterday and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I mean, I need a job but I don't know, if this is the one. The timing is a bit off as well. I'm enrolling my kid in daycare in September and I'll need a couple of weeks to ease him into it. I'm pretty sure the new boss won't be happy about me taking time off after just starting a job. But, we'll see where this takes me.

Wishing you all a happy weekend. Let me know what you're up to. :)

P.S. I opened a SHOP here on my blog. I'm selling some of my "big hair ladies" paintings. Go and check them out! :) Also check out my YouTube channel for art videos.

Acrylic Pour Swipe gone wrong and saved by String Fluid Art Flowers

This painting started out as gold swipe over black and red but I still need to figure out how to get a good result with that. I decided to try a new technique on it since I already messed up and I like how the string flowers turned out.

Watch the video below to see what went on.

Geisha

This story has nothing to do with Geishas but it's cute and I wanted to share it with you.

The neighbor's pet hens got loose and I bumped into one on the street coming back from the playground with my kid. I started talking to her like a freaking lunatic and asked her if she mind me picking her up because I didn't want her to get run over by a car. She was so cute and tame, I picked her up and carried her back to her home. When there, another one came out of the bushes straight towards me as if she wanted to be put back in, too, so I talked to her as well, of course, and returned her to the fenced in makeshift henhouse they were staying at.

The hens are not this neighbor's but she’s babysitting them for her son who went on vacation. The reason I know that is because the other night another neighbor brought 3 hens to his next door neighbor thinking they were hers but she counted them and they weren’t. Then they proceeded to come to our place to check if they’re ours since we also have hens and they weren’t. That’s when my mom remembered that this neighbor must be babysitting her son’s pet hens. 

Randomness:
  • I have plenty of acrylic pouring videos but I thought I'd sneak in some geishas
  • I'm learning Tarot reading for real this time. I've done it before but it didn't feel quite right so I stopped doing it.
  • My pooch Karma has allergies and needs to be treated because her hot spots are so bad she ended up on antibiotics again. It's been two months. When will this mess end?

Acrylic pour painting #2 tree rings and art video

This technique is called tree ring acrylic pouring because of the lines that look like tree rings. I must say this is my favorite technique so far. Btw, that's my 14 year old cat Charlie, who is deaf and a menace. Out of all of my cats, he's the troublemaker.

The thing with acrylic pouring is that you might love the painting as it is in the beginning but because there's so much paint, you have to redistribute it all over or even pour it off canvas so the paint is not on too thick. If that happens, the paint will crack and we don't want that.
Here's the making of this painting video. Please check it out and give it a like.

Acrylic pour paintings and New beginnings


I haven't posted last week because sadly my father passed away on Tuesday of last week. We had the funeral on Monday. I must say that this year has been challenging for me.

I do find comfort in making art and I ventured to a new challenge. It's called acrylic pouring and I started making videos of the process again. Check out my YouTube for that.

Hope you are all doing ok.
