Most evenings I try and get out for a walk with one of my friends or my dog! On some of these walks we happen upon some really interesting finds. Tonight one of my favourite chicks and I ventured out on this beautiful evening. Spring is in the air and the snow is beginning to melt. After dressing in layer upon layer throughout the winter to ward off the -20 degree weather we feel almost 10 pounds lighter dressed in our sweats and fleece sweaters. Not long after we started out on our venture we came across a damsel in distress. Her van was stuck in the melting snow and slush and with each push on the gas peddle she only sunk in deeper. The odd part about this scene was as she struggled to get her vehicle out she had two men standing at the top of her driveway with hands on hips watching her in disbelief. My girlfriend approached the vehicle and offered to give her a push. After seeing this, one of the men came waltzing up to the vehicle and offered to get in and drive while my girlfriend pushed (I would have offered my help as well but I have a pinched nerve and the thought of the pain seemed unbearable). To make matters worse, an old man came out of his house and started pushing as well. Within minutes, the van was out but I ask you, what is wrong with this picture? Makes me appreciate the husband I have, it would be a cold day in @#!! before he let a women do a mans job. Well I'm signing off for now. Until next time keep those driveways shoveled!

These are a few of my artsy friends. We are all members of an art Group called D.R.A.C. and we get together once a month to plan arts and crafts events. I'm so inspired by all of these women and what they create!
Come share your artiistic thoughts and creations! Hanging out with other artists is both inspiring and resourceful. We all work in much of the same mediums but our styles and work are very much different. I'm thankful for all of my artististic friends and I hope to give them as much inspiration as they have given me.

I'm hoping that starting this blog will inspire me to create and display more of my work! I've been busy painting my house as of late. We all know that with a new decor come the need for new art pieces. After painting my kitchen last month I decided that it was time I get busy creating some new art for the space. I wanted something with a bit of an Asian feel that creates a calming effect so I've incorporated the colour from the walls of my kitchen into this painting of cherry blossoms. I'll post my work along with the title as soon as I've completed it.
