Blizzard! Yikes!

I'll be home for least that was what we were trying to do Christmas Eve. We left the Ft. Worth area around 7am Christmas Eve. What should have been a 4 hour drive ended up being a 6 hour drive! We thought we were doing so good to leave so early so that we could get home in time to finish our Christmas shopping, but NO, the snow started, and kept coming, and kept coming, and got worse by each mile we drove. The visibility also decreased mile by mile, then we got stuck on I-20 for about 30 mins b/c of a major 18 wheeler accident. There were cars in the ditch all the way. We were nearly hit my a double trailer Fed-Ex 18 wheeler going up Ranger Hill. What an exhausting and scary trip. I was so happy to make it home safe & sound. Hope you all have had a very Merry Christmas & a safe Christmas! Ours has been full of blessings. Hugs to you all *** Renea

Ft Worth Texas

Ft Worth Texas has a beauty all its own. I love the old houses, the rivers and the trees. I have driven around and have seen some awsome old neighborhoods. I wanted to share some of those old homes with you.

And have you ever been downtown to the hospital district? Well if you haven't, then you are missing out. If you ever get the chance, drive by the Cook's Children's Hospital. They have amazing works of art in the flower beds all around the entrance. These little animal sculptures remind me of the grounds at Disney World. Hopefully these little figures make the children feel more comfortable and at ease. They even have a playground for the children and it is equipt with picnic tables.
The hospital even has its own "Guardian Angel".

When you get the chance yall come on down to go ole' Ft Worth for a visit. And be sure to eat at Joe T Garcia's, Uncle Julio's, Pappasita's, Flying Fish, Yucatan and Tommy's Burger's! Yummo! Hugs to you all***Renea

Something Different

I have been in an art funk lately, no ideas, no creative energy, nothing. But last night I actually did a couple of things. I am taking Carmen Torbus' on line class "spill it", which has been lots of fun so far. Her class requires you to get your hands dirty. As you can see mine were pretty messy!However I ended up with a neat background. I love these colors.I can't wait to see what next weeks class will be! Carmen is very fun & energetic.
So this morning I decided to get busy in my art room. I had started a background sometime ago & decided to overhaul it. And that is exactly what I did, now I have a very fun, whimsical piece. I'm not quite finished but just had to post it anyway. I have had a great time putting her together!
She is very different than what I normally paint, but I love her. She screams "Look at me, I'm a Queen"!!! I still have to paint the sides, and I have a couple of ideas to add to her.
And last but not least is a couple of monkey's that I found this weekend. They are all dress up for a special occasion. I decided that they are me & my hubby, 2 little monkey's in love.

I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was really good and creative. Hugs to you all! And have a great week! Renea

No Time for ART

No time for art. I have been so busy the last 4-6 weeks. I started looking for a job. Found one. Started work August 17th. And just get home so late that I am too tired to work on art. My daily commute is anywhere from 1-1/2 hours to over 2 hours. So if I get home after 7:15-7:30pm I just want a bath and to check my email and go to bed. But on thursday my commute will significantly drop by at least 45mins-1 hour. I do have a couple of pieces to post, I did these back in July sometime. Both of these are journals. The journal of friends is very small, about 3x4 inches. The journal of the bird nest is 6x6, and this piece is also my first attempt at a transfer. I think it went well.
Hope you all had a great start to your week. Hugs***Renea

Family Reunion

Last weekend we had our family reunion on my husband's side. We had a lot of fun visiting with everyone. Our son wasn't able to be there, however he did visit everyone via skype and his computer camara. Everyone loved seeing him & visiting with him.
Even his daughter saw him & was excited to see him. : ) How precious is that?And my youngest Grandson was the BEST sitter I have ever seen. He tended to Miss K, played with her and kept her occupied. She loved her cousin who took such good care of her.
Here is our side of the family, yes there is alot of us.Here is our immediate family, minus our son. And this is our nephew with Miss K. Looks like she was having a grand ole time with Cody. : )

And here is my beautiful daughter in purple! Hope your weekend was as good as mine. Hugs***Renea
