Chillaxing!

With the heat in Phoenix (yes, I am complaining) I would love for a little shade and an outdoor cup to sit in...make that a big cup.   Speaking of cups this one was fun to color and add a little dimension too.  Just by simple placing the colors down with highlight an shadows in each area gives the flat object a more round appearance.  Give it a try!  Pick up the stamp from Stampendous called Whisper Bath and color her up!

....this image reminds me of home.  So I couldn't finish this post without sharing some of my family.  My mom and dad live in Northern California.  They have build a wonderful oasis amongst the redwood trees of which they call home.  After building the house they built a deck that is built around the trees and an outdoor bathhouse right by moms art studios.  Dad always has a project going which is one of the reasons he remains so spry.  So here are a few peeks into a place I love.

Cousins in the mini pool...tub (love you CUZ)

One of Dads many gifts is to see beauty in junk and make it into something.  Creating a calming peaceful surrounding that you never want to leave.  My dad is a dreamer that can turn a dream into reality.  Of course he isn't alone in this artistic expression...my mom takes it all to a totally new level. They make an amazing team now for a total of 47 years!  Much admiration!
