Edible Art - Plum Jam

I have been neglecting my blog terribly.  I also haven't been painting much at all.  This summer has been unbelievably busy, taking all sorts of unexpected twists and turns.  Some good, some bad.....but mostly good.   There is a hint of fall in the evening air.  Days are getting shorter.  So much to do, so little time to do it.

 My neighbor brought over a grocery bag full of plump juicy plums.  I haven't made jam in years, but couldn't let them go to waste so put up some jars this afternoon.  Pretty as a picture, so I couldn't resist taking a few photos for some "edible art"!

Can't post on anyone's blog.....:(

Hi my talented blogging friends.  I have only been able to post on friends blogs sporadically for a couple of weeks now.  I have tried to research the problem, but there is really nothing I can do.  I have read on the blogger forums that other people are having the same problem.  Please know that although I don't post on your blog, that I visit regularly and love everything I see on your blogs.......Leola

People's Choice - August Theme Week - Sky - ACEO

                                        Hello Fellow Bloggers.  I have to say that I really haven't painted much this summer.  We have been so busy it seems that painting really had to go on the back burner. 

I decided to enter this month's theme week "SKY" over at the big ACEO group on EBAY.  The subject was right down my alley and a subject I hold very dear.  I painted this one and two others.  Really the only painting I've done this summer.

I was thrilled to find out that not only had this piece sold, but that it had won "People's Choice" for the theme!  Hopefully this will get the creative juices flowing and I can get down to painting in earnest!

Weekend Shadow party Aug 12, 2011

My blogger friend "Crafty Sue" is hosting her first ever Weekend Shadow Party. I love her shadows that she presents so was thrilled to be able to take part. This is my shadow. It is my chandelier over my diningroom table but you can also see my lamp upstairs in the strong late afternoon sun. You can see Crafty Sue and the other participants over at her blog here:
