this week... friday already

time is flying as always...Happy paintparty friday! This week I finished my spread in the wonderful sketchbook of http://artbrat.blogspot.com/. It's so much fun to have them arrive in the mail and to slowly look over the few pages that are already done. I can't wait till they're almost full when they arrive. It will be that much harder to pass them along at the end of the month...


This spread is for June and I meant to go for a lady falling thru chaos with sharp landings, as I really hated the thought of June during each of my daughter's senior years. I hated the whole year actually, too much worrying and such. But once graduation came around I was fine and so were they. Anyway, this doesn't really represent my  thoughts so I tried again with the second picture. They just always come out cuter than I expect. Not the best photo this week...

and for the fiberart friday people... again I have to post my daughter's work, not mine...

Very Cheery! Her etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/barefootbananas?ref=ss_profile
won the nonteamchallenge this week, and everyone is using her snails: Gazpacho and Alfred, that I showed a few weeks ago, for the challenge. Hundreds of treasuries with those two little guys. So much fun! If you want to join here's the link to the rules:

  3. Your falling ladies are just a delight and yes they are always cute and that's not a bad thing! I love how they are falling towards the roof tops but still look serene and unfazed!

  10. The falling ladies are so much fun. The June lady makes me cringe a little. I want to move her away from the spire!!!
    It appears your daughter has inherited your talent.

  18. This is the first time I've seen a dark theme in one of your falling ladies ... a bit unsettling after all the happy ribbons and sunshine!

  19. Brava Andrea! I am more excited each month as the books fill up...can't wait to see your painting in my book...I don't think I will be able to see your artwork any other way, so I thank you for posting it. You are so completely yourself with your art and your talent. I really admire that. ♥♥♥

  22. It's the slo-mo that I love: making you feel that all will be ok by the time you get down there .
    Know what? This is the kind of wall decoration for things like gynecologists's waiting rooms. Ever thought of producing it as wall paper?

  29. I have been trying to leave you a comment for a few days and have been having issues with blogger. I simply adore your entry in my sketchbook. As usual, your work is stellar and it makes me smile. I cant wait to get my book back and see it in person. Thank you!!!!

  30. The cloudy sun is sweet! Gotta jump over and check out that Etsy shop, thank you for the linky. As always, your falling lady is great.

  31. Gorgeous, gorgeous work! I always love your ladies, and this painting is especially wonderful to me with the meaning written out. My oldest daughter is a senior this year, and I'm dreading the process of letting her go :)
    On a side note, I think I finally know where I'm going with my July entry for your book.....July (and December) are both hard for me 'cause it feels so hard to stay away from cliches.....more later ;)
