Today I am joining Kim Smith for her EGGSTRAVAGANZA Painting Party on Instagram! #kimsmithfriends if you would like to see more. If you haven’t seen Kims work before, treat yourself to a few minutes on her site. I love her flowers, her birds… everything!
Last night we had a spectacular sunset. We ooo’d and aww’d. Haha.
There is one case of the virus in Prescott, our neighbor city. Two reported in Sedona, an hour east of Mingus. Just over 100 in Arizona. Our county had been virus-free. Stay safe! 🙏
Let us greet with a song of hope each day Though the moments be cloudy or fair Let us trust in our Savior always To keep us, everyone, in His care
Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side Keep on the sunny side of life It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way If we’ll keep on the sunny side of life
My good friend Christiane Drieling has done it once again. Her Art On 45 art show and auction are underway. The show is now on display, and the auction takes place on the 14th. Next Saturday. Oh man, I am later than I thought, getting this post out.
This is the fifth year, and the show includes a retrospective of the previous artworks. I wanted to share a few photos with you, and I will share some from the auction as well. If you are in the area be sure to check it out. It’s a one-of-a-kind art event!
Thank you Christiane Drieling, and Markus Wobisch! Congratulations on another fantastic year!

We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone. Dr. Loretta Scott
This is a small collection of the work that was created during the gathering. The group has grown to 132 members. In the past month, there were over 19 thousand posts, comments, and reactions shared within the group. That’s a lotta sharin’, talkin’, and cheerin’!
700 pieces were posted in the daily albums. 119 images were posted elsewhere. The day 1 album had the most posts, 31. The remaining daily album posts ranged between 17 and 30. This count is incomplete, however, due to misclassified posts.
The group was started as a continuation of the 30-Day challenge tradition. Many of the artists involved have been doing a bi-annual painting challenge for over 7 years. I am thrilled that so many choose to keep the challenge alive!
I am so honored to be among this group of creative talents. Your work is amazing! I applaud your learning and experimenting. Your desire for growth. Your generosity and graciousness with fellow group members. Congratulations everyone on our second fabulous event!
Thank you all for granting permission to share your work here and on the group Pinterest board. There are just over 100 images on the board. It is a fabulous gallery!
The art is shown in no particular order. You can click on the galleries (side by side images) to view the work without the title along the bottom. It will not, however, increase the size of the image. There is more art on the board from artists who write blogs. (They are directly pinable.)
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. Albert Einstein
Creativity gives hope that there can be a worthwhile idea. Edward de Bono
You don’t take a photograph, you make it. Ansel Adams
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Scott Adams
Don’t be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends. Richard Bach
