Who Are You?

That's  the  name  of  my  new  online  class  that  I'm  taking  with  Jodi  Ohl  over  at  the  Artful  Gathering  ning  site.    It's  all  about  whimsical  owls--something  new  for  me.   I've  been  liking  all  of  these  owls  popping  up  everywhere,  so  I  decided  to  give  them  a  try.   But  what  I  also  like  about  this  class  are  the  background  techniques  that  we  start  out  with--



---great  texture  and  very  quick  to  accomplish.     I  really  like  the  layers  that  you  start out  with  because  they   always  come  peeking  through  the  finished  piece,  and   I've  now  fallen  in  love  with painting  owls--   
                                    





And  I  did  what  I  always  do  with  my  favorite  pieces---


 : )

So  I'm  making  this  short---I'm  getting  ready  to  leave  for  the  rest  of  the  week.    I'm  so  excited--I'm  going  to  the  Highway  127  sale--700  miles  of  flea  markets  and  garage  sales  starting  on  Thursday  until  Sunday  from  dawn  to  dusk--it's  awesome!    This  will  be  the  third  time  that  we've  gone  there,  and  the  state  of  Tennessee  is  our  favorite  place  to  find  good  sales.   We're  ending  with  a  side  trip  to  Nashville--looking  forward  to  that  too!

I  hope  I  find  this  booth  when  I'm  there--


--because  we  love  to  haggle too! (what  a  fun  word...)
