100th post!

Wow! This is my 100th post! I cannot believe it! I started this blog back in June but only really started writing on it in August. This blog actually started as a class project for one of my Technology in Education classes I took this summer. Apparently blogging is all the rage in education now!

I originally was going to use this blog with my students but ended up having too much fun writing about my own art and life...oops! I still am going to start a class blog someday!

Anyways today I had a lazy day...I am hoping I get a second wind tonight. I feel so blah if I don't get things accomplished!

Today I went grocery shopping and bought lots of healthy food for the husband and I! We are trying to be healthy now and having only "good for you" food in the house is key! I bought myself a little treat though at the store...those of you who are vegetarians or vegans I am sorry...

But I bought my favorite

SUSHI!



I think it is so pretty...the husband thought I was a weirdo for taking pictures of it! Sushi is my absolute favorite food and I rarely buy it at the store because it is so expensive! Oh well...treat for me:) The husband hates it! What is your favorite food?



I also worked on some new collages. Here is a work in progress...nothing is glued down yet.



I'm still going to paint some details after everything is collaged down. I will post the finished product!

I also have been playing around with masking fluid and watercolors. Here is a design I am working on:




Masking fluid works as a resist so wherever you put it on your paper, it will stay white even after you paint on top of it. I just love it!

Well have a happy Monday...I am off to do more art!

happy 100th post! i love reading about you and your work. i often feel self-conscious taking photos of food in a restaurant and if i see someone else doing it i'm sure they have a blog. here's to healthy eating.

happy new year to you both! c

ps my word verification this time is 'cheating' - interesting.
