May 1st, next Saturday starts our SATURDAY THROUGH THE LENS project. Post your favorite picture, taken on Saturday and send me your blog link so I can post it on Sunday for people to go check it out. This isn't a competition of best photographs, it's a chance to give us a glimpse of what goes on in your world on a Saturday. Maybe, you feel your best shot of the day is your bowl of cereal, it's up to you. Most of the people that check into my blog have a camera strapped around their necks or in their pockets. Taking at least ONE photo on a Saturday probably isn't going to be that difficult. I know I'm looking forward to see what you post.
And, this is a gentle reminder that you are NOT locked into playing the entire year. Play as often as you can.

Monday, I'll be posting links to anybody that has a FULL MOON art doll or mixed media project for the month of April.

I've started a storyboard for Hanging Out The Laundry challenge. I had to actually cut 3' of clothesline (found it at the grocery store) to see exactly how many things I could possibly hang on it. Quite a bit, I was surprised. I also made laser copies at the local copy shop of sheet music for the time period. I'm going to gel med. transfer some of all of them to the first layer of my cloth that I will be hanging out, on the line.

I'll be over in the studio working on finishing up the first of our Abstract Art challenge pieces.
Then on Monday we move on to a little discussion about our pieces and the next part of our challenge. I know, for me, just working on different color combinations of my same three colors has been interesting. And, for once I probably really KNOW my particular Split Complementary colors. That's a first.

Zeus and I drove up to Sauk City, this morning, for breakfast. Misty, moisty morning, it was.
The restaurant was packed with farmers in blue jean bib overalls and their wives. Every one seemed pleased that they had gotten their fields plowed and seed planted before the rain last night. The air was humming with happy talk and the smell of cinnamon buns, as big as your head.

On the way home, Zeus read me a short story from the Atlantic. A very enjoyable morning.

:)Bea Off to the studio to create, how about you?


  1. Bea do you sleep? I am just jealous of your everlasting energies. I did rest and now I am trying to make hay while the sun...well rain comes down. Have a great weekend! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  2. LOL Most nights, but not as much as I probably need. I just keep trying to remember to stay in the moment and make it count, you know. :)Bea

  3. Wow Bea, you'll meet yourself coming back one day!! What a lovely day you had and those cinnamon buns sound just wonderful. I can smell them from here. Aha, so the clothes line one is different from the abstract art one? Gosh, so many different things you're doing! Hugs. Have a good Sunday. xxx

  4. So many fun things....that's what I like, no getting bored here!!!LOL
