birds for imt

On my street we have a small flock of Sandhill Cranes. They often slowly parade down the road looking for all the world like the Grand marshals. Of course, all traffic stops and waits and smiles watching them stroll along. These are my lovelies after the parade.

picture titles can make a difference

The pictures below are the proof of that. I see what the commentors are saying seems true, until you know the tile of the piece is DooWhop. The young people entertaining their neighbors. Look again and tell me what you see.

light imt

Here's my light, in more ways than one.
Things are quiet on the home front. Big thrill is new lawn mower. When you have an acre of SAWGRASS and weeds you either mow or get goats.
I may yet resort to that.

happy day

Today is Our wedding anniversary 15 years married and 25 years together.
We couldn't split up no matter how hard we tried. Not bad for a "spite" wedding.
Any way I wanted my adoring husband to remember where every thing was when we met and before I found out how well gravity worked.

Time at the mall is always a visual turn on for me.
There is color and form and shape and texture and stories. I had an awful pen and the news paper but am pleased with result.

sloth for Studio Friday

Being my worst sin you'd think I could come up with thousands of images to represent this subject but no - just one.
Actually, last weeks greed also showed sloth.

These two pictures are the same chair.
One is the new chair,
the next is a few days later.
I used #2 for an
entry on greed earlier this week.
But now you have seen my lifestyle.

These images were done to illustrate a children's book that I

to my poet

I have, for years now, been madly in love with an older man.
He told me I was special and that I could be what I would be.
he made me laugh and cry and giggle like a child.
Alas, he is married..lives far away and loves his wife and that is as it is meant to be..
But I can revel in his words.
The Man is poet RIC MASTEN
and i recommend this site to every one
to Ric: you know the first to images refer to Let It Be A Dance,
the third is hoping you'll be tickled.

About Me

arcadia, florida, United States
My name is Sherrie and I hate computers!!! It has taken me all day to get this far in putting together a blog site so i can share my work in some of the challenges. I'm in my 50's and am from Fort Worth, Texas. I was a member of LRY (if you don't recognize the title ignore it) and many of the people I met there are major influences in my life. I am short and round and am feeling my years but not all in bad ways. I find I like mentoring young people and am finding my grooves in my art, finally! The women in my family tend to figure things out later in life. I live in a rural area in Florida and really enjoy it here. I'm trying to put together a studio in my shed out back but it is slooooow going.Out here in the sticks there has been a new surprise every month so far for 2 years. A new flower blooms, a crepe myrtle thought dead blooming, finding a passion flower vine, or the huge FAIRY HOLE in my great big live oak out back. We made it thru the eye wall of hurricane Charley in '04 and are getting it together finally. Now that I am not working at retail any more I am finally working with my creative side, which unfortunately hasn't paid as well, but is so much more satisfying.
