Make a Mark March!

Image
This month I am participating in Make a Mark March.  Each day a special mark is featured when doing a mixed media piece.  Now you don't always have to use just one mark,  but the mark for that specific day must be included in your submission.

It is simply a challenge, not a contest so it's all for fun but I have been challenged by learning new ways to incorporate uniqueness in my backgrounds.  For example:


The dark crackly marks were achieved by wrapping a rubber band around a stick and rolling it in paint, then rolling it on the painting.  Each mark is different and lends a certain discord, which adds to the theme of the piece.

Spending Time with Charlie Daniels

Image
Last night I got to spend a little time with Charlie Daniels.....as an audience member...of course! I was up close and personal! It was a great show! He is a wonderful entertainer. My best friend purchased tickets awhile back but her friend couldn't go and I was up here in Ohio early so I was given the seat! I have not listened much to country music once I grew up, but I still enjoy it and enjoyed the show. He played a couple of cover songs, a tribute to Johnny Cash and Leonard Cohen. Also How Great Thou Art. He is a wonderful fiddle player! He didn't miss a note on the fiddle but missed a few words on the songs....he is 80 now and still touring full steam. The big hat and sunglasses onstage were probably the only thing I didn't like. I couldn't see his face. But all country stars wear their hats! The sunglasses probably were to protect his eyes from stage lights. Which actually I was not a fan of those audience lights! His light show flashed bright white on t…

Bessie's Annual Bath

Image
Bessie got her annual bath today. She had many patches of mossy green on her and her flowers had blown away some time ago, so she was ready! Of course I'm always a day late and a dollar short. The entire family was here last month but admired Bessie anyway in her mossy pathetic state with only her bell around her neck. She can be easily seen from the street now because I sold the truck last summer. It annoyed me that the best place, the only place really to park it was in an opening in the woods right in front of her. So you could glimpse her from the road briefly but only I saw her in all her glory from the carport. From my front window I occasionally see cars slowing down to get a better look or show the kids. She is worth her weight in gold! Since she is solid cement that would be quite a chunk. When I move back to Ohio she is going with me. She is quite the traveler. She Originally lived in Kentucky, then Ohio and now Florida.   She has logged quite a few miles on the r…
