Story Telling: What Happen Yesterday

Yesterday I woke up feeling OK but as the day progressed I came to realize how we as humans are programmed and mentally conditioned for these holidays. Even if you chose not to be involved there will always be someone who will wish you a “Happy” what ever the holiday is.

Why does everyone assume you spent time with family or friends. Why do they assume you attended a church service.

These holidays are man made and the only profit is retail sales with people feeling guilty so they buy gifts.

So as I asked the question “What happen yesterday” I respond with nothing happen it was just another day.

Artist Trading Cards

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.

Let me know your thoughts about these trading cards and take a visit to my gallery for other pieces  http://chinue.imagekind.com/Smallartseries

The Festivals Have Begun Part 3- Lemon Lily Festival

One of the most beautiful things about a road trip some where is the scenery you see along the way.   We went to the Lemon Lily Festival this weekend in Idylwild, California at an Environmental Conservation  The Lemon Lily is like many of our animals, it is a threatened native Lily.  This place is doing everything to educate the public about this beautiful plant.

Don’t depend on your GPS  for directions all the time because sometimes it will take you the back roads to a location.  We were at about 4,000 feet in these photos and still had about an hour left before we arrived.

One thing about being this elevation you can see the whole city beneath you.   It was a good day all in all.  Since I am not fond of heights  I’m not getting too close to the edge to take a photo.

Museum Day Part 2 The Lincoln Memorial

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…….

Flowers and Festivals

This was my first of many Festivals for 2015.   Today we went to the Wild Flower Festival.  It was  my first time going so I was excited to say the least.

I was amazed at all the wild flowers and the history behind them I even learned a lot of American Indian history of how the plants were used by some of the tribes

The Gardens are about 88 acres and it was just beautiful to see. WILD FLOWER FESTIVAL WILD FLOWER FESTIVAL WILD FLOWER FESTIVAL Wild Flower Festival WILD FLOWER FESTIVALIt was a good day.
