(You are in the right place! I changed my banner and my background - tell me what you think!)

I always look for signs and the more you look, the more you see...

I have been wanting to meet more art minded people up here and getting discouraged since I am so far away from anyone and not sure where to start. A couple weeks ago I found a town sorta close (1hour!) that has a whole art community and this week in the local paper was this...

THis is a workshop pretty close to me that I am going to now on Tuesday! YAY! It is funded by the ON govt up here to promote artist and marketing. It includes a notebook, lunch and an all day workshop for 20 bucks!

Hopefully I can meet some people and learn some marketing tips at the same time. I'll let you know how it went.

Saturday, I was going to go on a tour shopping and flea marketing and it was gonna be my artist date, but it was so miserable outside that I decided to stay home.

I decided to have an artist date at home! I got out all my supplies and had a brain wave in the morning that I really liked the silkscreen type posters of Obama and it would be neat to try to make one. Sarah is right into Obama and I thought I could do this for her.

I had a lot of fun. It was really neat doing all these colors - like a paint by number that I made myself.

I know, this is the fat version of Obama. lol!

After I got it laid out, I realized too late that his face was too fat... still cool though!

I'd like to do some more faces this way.

Even though we are in Canada, we get a lot of US tv and media and we see more of this election than our own! We are excited to see what happens Nov 4 and it's so cool to watch history in the making.


  1. Yeah for you!! This post is fun to read and it looks like you had some fun, too!

  2. Hi Cheryl! I love the new look of your blog! Your Obama is fabulous and that workshop sounds great!!! Very cool. Have fun!
