tree atc and doodle

A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made it safely to his van. However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, "Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh." (I wasn't sure if I had De Gaulle to write this, But, I figured I had nothing Toulouse.)

Words that struck me this morning

Pay attention to maintaining beauty.
Allow events to change you….. Do not allow circumstances determine your joy.
He who wants milk should not sit himself in the middle of a pasture
waiting for a cow to back up to him. (Anonymous)
...the moods of sadness that come over anyone who takes up art... these dismal moods have very little compensation. (Edgar Degas)
Joys as winged dreams fly fast,
Why should sadness longer last?
Grief is but a wound to woe;
/ Gentlest fair, mourn, mourn no moe. (John Fletcher)

And then there were three

Camp Sparky rules:
1.) Know yourself (Socrates)
2. Control yourself (Cicero)
3. Give of yourself (Jesus)
4. Forgive everybody everything everyday (Nancy)
I love it! this is from
One of the wonderful folks at EDM. I want to commit to a summer of art everyday... I am getting some unbelivable atcs from folks all over. I am really enjoying the atcs.

Funky hair

This is one of my favorites of the funky hair cards. i am learning a lot on these little canvases ... I hope to get some supplies and try some things I am itching to do.... For now I need to make examples for an art class (:
I am finding myself overextended and not focusing on what needs done...
