Dancing Queen ~ Stetson ~ Journal Pages

"Dancing Queen"
Acrylic 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 on paper
This was painted in the Robert Burridge workshop in Cloudcroft and was titled after our Canvas by Canvas group saw Mamma Mia. See previous post.
Here is the link to Bob's ArtsyFartsy Newsletter. It is informative and great reading if you've interested in painting. Thanks Bob and Kate for mentioning my blog in the August issue.

For a CBC project
I painted this Monday at the gallery for a project for Karen, one of our CBC members. Watch our sneak peak at the CBC website as soon as our webmistress, Betty, returns from a fabulous vacation. We have several projects going for our Petroleum show in October and the Fort Worth Community Arts Center Show in September.

Two CBC commissioned paintings were delivered to Doug Chestnut of Gables Villa Rosa on July 29. One of the largest art stores, Asels, in Dallas is across the street and then we had to check out Sam Moon's and it was cause for a whole page of a journal entry. Doug

I have been enjoying getting back to writing and drawing in my journal each day. I don't know how long it will last this time but it's been about a month now and I will post some of the entries. These are 4 pages during the Cloudcroft workshop. I am using the Canson Montval All Media 9 x 12 journal and using pen and watercolor and some collage.

I found you through Art Journaling and really like the way you compose your journal pages. I've subscribed to your blog and will visit often.

Thanks Jo. It's always a struggle to find time to journal but I love to do it and love it better to look back on previous entries and recall sweet times.
