Its here the count down for the new year has started. People are heading to different places to be ready for the celebration of the new year. Have you ever thought that maybe you are the celebration. You and your creative energy are a celebration every time you step into a room.
2017 has been a great year, and as we close it out with the last blog of the year we want to thank everyone for their support of this blog. You have followed, you have liked and shared and we are so grateful for your presents.
We are looking forward to what 2018 will manifest.
My new project is the Artist Trading Cards. Each one of these small pieces is 2.5 X 3.5 . I bought the Canvas Paper for oils but they also have the ones for Pastels, Charcoal, and Water Color. You get about 10 cards per pack and since they are already treated you can just paint, glue, stamp or whatever you want. I have seen some very creative cards online.
I love to paint small as you know by my Small Art Series Paintings which start at 8 X 10 but I must admit painting on this small-scale 2.5 X 3.5 is really a challenge. It will be interesting to see where this leads me.
I heard these birds in a tree and they were really loud and intense. I was a good distance from them but was able to zoom in very well to capture this photo of them there is something about nature that always makes us know life is good no matter what is going on.
I really like how I was able to capture the red on the plant in detail. I recently joined a photography group so I can do more photography this summer.
For some reason I always thought the only way I would ever see the Lincoln Memorial was to travel to Washington DC. Image how surprised I was when I found out in the City of Redlands, California there is a Lincoln Memorial. One day I will travel to Washington to see the main memorial, but for now I was glad to see this one.
This was the second museum we went to on the Museum Crawl Day. It was like stepping back in history, I even saw the first submarine ship used by the Navy. There were letters, there were medical instruments used on the soldiers to cut their limbs off, there was history that is not taught in the school system.
Little did we know that if Lincoln had not been killed, he had planned to come to California. That part of history we never knew. It is a beautiful example of what is right and what is still wrong and needs improvement.
We have one more museum to share with you on the next writing, which you will be very surprised about. Thanks for following and please leave a comment and like our page…….
Recently went on museum visit which was called a “Crawl”. You had admission to three museums that day at no charge, they gave you a passport that you would have stamped at each location. At the last location they would put your passport into a drawing for tickets at a later date.
The weather was perfect for this outing so off we went to the first location First stop was the Historical Glass Museum. Ok, did you know there was any such thing as a Glass Museum, I sure did not. This museum is truly for the collector in you with items from the 1800’s, 1900’s and more. If you can even image glass ware from the 1920’s then you have come to the right place. I was very impressed with all the history of glass at this location and the care that has been given in preserving this museum for public view. It was a good day for learning about glass…………….:)
Thanks for following us, and if you haven’t already like us we have more to come. We will tell you about the next museum in our next blog, until then keep preserving history.
