And Debra,

How did your show go in Leipers Fork - what a cool name!

Comment by Billie Wells 59 minutes ago

Wow, David, that is awesome! I am stunned that you did it in 15 minutes. It's amazing!

Eileen, your site is really good. I like the idea of the tours.

Thanks Court, I got the book!

I have been working a lot and navigating the rough waters of raising a teen and also working with her dyslexia - so I haven't been around a lot.

I am working on getting a mentor and putting together a mastermind group this spring. And here's a recent piece. I call it Sarah Sparkle. It's for a friend who's facing a surgery to figure out if she's got cancer.

My goal is to work on marketing - I haven't a clue for what works. But I am not discouraged. I spend everyday listening to positive material and setting goals and working toward them.

Here's a ted talk on telling others what you do that I love: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVsXO9brK7M&list=LLSkTMiVQsk4_r...

David, that was a cool idea! I too can't believe that it only took 15 minutes. Anointed hands they are! Court, great idea of saving items that you like and then having them for a future project just because it is something that you enjoy. Kent, I will have to take the time to look up that specific time period I think my interest in artists are from the fifties, I will get back. You are always doing something unusual and interesting. My new temporary job in Oregon has been keeping me busy, but today I am going to the Saturday market and there should be artist selling items today. It will be interesting to SE what people on this side of the country are doing. Have a great Easter !

May you each be blessed with a beautiful Easter! So thankful for the promise of new life and for each of you!

David, your painting is amazing. I cannot believe you did that in 15 minutes. Wow!

Feel free to post your creative projects. Especially what you've been working on this spring. Let's brighten up this forum!

Had the opportunity to paint in our Maundy Thursday service last night. I had about 15 minutes. http://amokarts.wordpress.com/2014/04/18/tonights-worship-painting/

Thank you for your encouraging words Kent!  It is a labor of love for sure!!  

Comment by Kent Sanders yesterday

Eileen, I'm sorry I'm so late to the discussion, but just wanted to congratulate you on your new site. It looks great and I hope you have tremendous success with the fine are gallery and your coaching. It all sounds really exciting, and all everyone in this 48 Days group would agree, art is a pretty important thing and well worth an investment of time. :) Keep up the great work!

Hi, Kent! The quotes in my book have been compiled over years of reading and researching. I am kind of addicted to quotes and I have multiple files where I save them. Quotes for this, quotes for that... So that when I am trying to remember them, I just pull up my word docs with quotes saved. I also use "good reads" to verify the source or cross-reference. Especially if it is something I wrote down a while ago, I'll double, triple, quadruple check it online to make certain I've got it the most accurate way possible.

Kent, I love old books and have several, but in truth I can't say as I have ever seen an old art info book. Are you looking for how to's or specific art image books?
By the way the weather will be nice Sunday so I will be in Liepers Fork just south of Franklin. Deby and anyone else, if you have the time, stop by I wood love to see you! I will be across from Joe's Naturals.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

By the way, Court: thanks for making your book available recently. It's very good. You have a ton of great quotes included in the text. Did you compile those over the years, or were there a few sources that were most helpful in finding those?
