It's Wednesday again and time for another 1 $ deal. On Wednesdays I find one of my older paintings and list it on eBay at a starting bid of $1. This week I have "Cat Eye" available. It was originally painted on March 4, 2011.

I was a bad daughter and didn’t go visit my dad today for Father’s Day. Instead I painted. That’s me…always working!
My dad loves to eat his watermelon with salt. So, I think tomorrow I’ll add a little salt shaker to the composition and that one will be for him.

On Wednesdays I find one of my older paintings and list it on eBay at a starting bid of $1. I forgot One Dollar Wednesday last week. This week I have "Atomic Pink" available. This was originally painted on May 10, 2010. Just love that pink color!
Have you read any good books lately? I've been reading White Oleander by Janet Fitch. I highly recommend it, if you haven't already read it. It's about 12 years old by now. I'm a bit behind...
Anyway...today was a paint wiping day. Many tries, but nothing kept. Oh well...

Sorry for the bad photo. I’ll scan it in a few days.
The remainder of last week was a wiper. I didn’t like anything I put down. I kept trying all sorts of scenarios with this stripe fabric. Maybe I should have eliminated the fabric and went on with something else, but I didn’t. Finally yesterday I finished this.
I did have and encounter with an opossum. I was on my early morning walk and found this a opossum mother with babies on her back by my trail. I actually got a picture.
She was on the other side of the fence when I first saw her and crawled under the fence while I was watcher her. Which scrapped all her babies off her back. Now worries, they climbed right back on.
Here’s a cropped picture. I call here mini van mama.

Much anxiety went into this painting. I really challenged myself with the ellipse openings. Still needs some work, but I’m pretty please with the overall painting.
Thanks for stopping by!

Watermelon always reminds me of summer. Especially when I was about 6 or 7 hanging out in my best friend Tonya’s basement eating watermelon after spending the day at the swimming pool. We always thought that if you ate a seed, you were going to grow a watermelon in your stomach.
