PPF and mermaids....

It has been non-stop busy here and NO time to really paint.  Still behind in Natasha's Cotton Candy Girl class and have two ATC trades due...ugh!  Need more time!  So, I decided to make my lesson 4 CCG a mermaid to help me out with getting ready to do 3 atc's due for Sirens of the Sea!!!  Here's where I am at in the process:

Sorry this pic is so blurry but in a hurry!!!  anyway she is supposed to be a rainbow CCG, I've decided to do a rainbow of blues behind her and that counts for two projects completed.  But now the challenge of doing the ATC's to finish.

CHECK HER OUT AT http://cripplepencil.blogspot.com/
I was also lucky enough to receive a BEAUTIFUL atc that I commented on.   Minniemie had posted this elephant that I just loved.  On her blog it looked incredible, in person it is even more so!!!  Then, added bonus, she sent it in a card that is another amazing piece of art!!!  When I inquired about the elephant she just offered to send it, I suggested a trade.  Now I am all intimidated at producing something that will be good enough.  It is like a rookie cook sending the chef a pastry!!!  I will work on that next week when the nuts schedule here settles a bit. 
(g-kids - one dance recital last night, one tonight, open house saturday and a baseball game on monday - see what I mean)
I won't even mention how far behind I am in Lisa's WrightBrain course,  I really can only work on her assignments when I am calm and settled to freely think about what she has asked or shared with us...it is a mind/eye opening experience!
Last but not least - two very important events:  (well, in my world anyways!)
Sue Bleiweiss's book comes out on the 26th!  I have a dozen copies on order because I have a sketch on page 27!!!!  Guess what all our kids are getting for christmas????  please check it out and visit Sue's site - amazing artist!!!
AND PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT - CLICK ON THE TOP SIDEBAR TO VOTE FOR MY FRIEND JOY!!!!!!!!!  A wonderful quilt artist that is stepping out of her comfort zone and sharing her amazing work.  This is her first competition effort!

Amish Wind by Joy Tallman!!!!
GOOD LUCK JOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Be sure to stop by all the Paint Party Friday artists...not only is there incredible art but sooooooooo much inspiration. Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting and please help the featured artist make her dream come true, Jenny Wentworth!

Oh my what an array of wonderful art here today, yours and your friends! As a textile art quilter myself (doing more drawing lately) I really liked the art quilt your friend made. And I love minnimae's work too. It's all great yours included so don't be shy about sending yours off as gifts!
HPPF!

OH no! Please do not be intimidated OR feel pressured to get the ATC done! You are not officially released of any of that:-) I am just old fashioned and find ATC's a fun way to connect in a different way with friends in cyber space - like you are really real - flesh and blood and art I can hold and touch - kind of real:-) Your work is great and it is so YOU!

Your output leaves me breathless, I don' t know how you do it all - and produce such lovely things. Also love the quilted wall hanging. Having done a lot of textile art in the past I can appreciate all the work and artistry that goes in to it, and such an original subject.
