Ever wonder why I don't post more artwork? Why I'm too tired to have a coherant conversation before I turn in at 9:00PM? It's the UNFINISHED SYMPHONY of the needs of testing, retesting, tracking, corraling, herding, and sometimes even teaching 20 first graders who would rather be going to see some musical about cute high schoolers!

Found this overall stencil at a craft store...and glory hallelujah! LOW ODOR paint!!! I'm back on with trying the stencils. (The smell of regular spray paint made me want to barf and shortened my graffeti artist career.) So I got a little excited and sprayed several pages which stuck together...they really do mean quick drying.... so I lost several journal pages to The Stencil Learning Curve for Slow Learners.
Found this one at a craft store and added it to a journal page. I'll like it even more when I can get it to not stick to the previous page. HELLO! Slow down impatient stenciller.

It's hot and windy so taking a few shadow pictures seemed the right thing.

Who woulda' thought the shy, tall girl I met 23 years ago would turn into a beauty who would take me to tea on a super Saturday outing...and say wonderful things about how I helped raise her...and buy me 1ooo Artist Journal Pages???!!! Lucky me...
We tried on several hat/ boa combos to get the right look.
Table rose in apricot color...who could resist taking so many pictures their new camera flashed "Memory Full" in red? Not me...a "friend of mine".
All tables had different china, hats, boas, gloves, vintage photos... It should say "NO BOYS ALLOWED" on front door.

The Infant of Prague must have blessed Room 3 today. For a Monday, things went well. No one threw rocks or threatened mayhem on others. No talk that wasn't "school talk". No one wound up in the principal's office. Only 7 names on the board for the minor infractions of fooling around during reading and shouting out.

Clouds with the suggestion of RAIN! Be still my heart. Lady Lemonade never gets enuf of the wet stuff when she's at home in The Little Yellow House On the Hill.

I made this for you, teacher, he said as he carefully extracted this from a backpack. I love the tree I told him. But it's a mushroom! How could I have seen that beauty as a tree? Silly me. And my favorite sunflower right next to the mushroom. What a loving gift of true art from the heart. How many people are gifted with lovingly done artwork first thing in the morning?
