I love this quote.  Change is coming as we close Delilah’s next weekend.  Sunday will be our final day.  It was great seeing so many friends this week doing their last shopping at our cute little shop.

And the something better is coming….

I love a BIG project.  I have been developing a few ideas of a BIG project to do as a follow-up to my Painted Diamonds-30 Parks in 30 Weeks that I did last year.

One project that I think would be great would be to paint in all 50 states.  Well there is an artist doing it right now…and doing it in a BIG way.  Tim Kenney, an Oklahoma painter, is now toward the end of his BIG project.  He is painting 50 Paintings, one in each of the 50 states, and here is the kicker…in 50 days!!!  Wow!

I have been following Kenney on his Facebook page during this project and it’s fascinating.  Check out this article about Tim Kenney and his work and if you are on Facebook follow him for the next 9 days as he completed this BIG project.

I had a few minutes to paint during art class last night so in honor of Picasso and finding his painting hidden under “The Blue Room”,  I painted over an old abstract painting I had done several years ago.

The Seagull is acrylic on 24″ x 24″ canvas and is available for $225.

I love stories about finding unknown paintings by famous artists or recovering stolen paintings.

Here is a really fascinating story.  A portrait of a man was found underneath Picasso’s “The Blue Room” painting.  Many artists “reuse” canvas especially if they are unhappy with a painting.

Since 1954 conservators suspected there was another painting underneath but didn’t have the technology to discover it without damaging “The Blue Room”.    Read more about this discovery here.

The second painting I did at the Nimrod Art weekend was a small paint and paper piece of a radish.  Working with paper collage is so different from just painting.  I am glad to get the opportunity to experience it with such a wonderful instructor.

Susannah Raine-Haddad was extremely generous in her teaching.   You can learn more about her and her work on her website ZouZou’s Basement.

One of her wonderful collage pieces made the cover of Cloth-Paper-Scissors magazine earlier this year.

Thanks Susannah for sharing your skill and knowledge with us.  It was great fun!
