My New Frida ~ Mi Frida Nuevo

Last Sunday I attended the Artists' Reception at the Art Center and was encouraged by some very nice compliments of my Frida. It was a blind buy so I don't know if the recipient of my Frida liked her or not. I feel like calling her and offering her the twenty dollars back if she doesn't want it. When I say this people often say well just paint another one. It isn't in my nature to be repetitive. I am always looking for new challenges. Anyway I decided to do a new Frida and this is what I came up with. the last picture is of my first Frida. This was a mosaic project and it was really a cool exhibit.
I feel bad I haven't been blogging. I guess I like reading better than I like writing. I've got to run to the school and help my fifth graders with math. Happy day to all!

Happy Easter!

Let's go for a ride!
Can you say sugar overload?

Hello blog friends! I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter! My kids have had such a great time with the egg hunts, Easter baskets and the nice weather! They were so appreciative of what the Easter Bunny brought them. It was such fun watching them opening up the plastic eggs with the dollar bills tucked inside. The golden egg had a five dollar bill in it! I know I will be picking up Easter grass and candy wrappers for the next month! Oh well, it was worth it to see their big grins when they went through their baskets.

Happy Easter to all!
