Do you remember that song? Or the movie it is from? A play on words. Made me laugh. I know, I know. I’m a geek. I recently watched The Movies that Made Us and it was in my head.
This design was recently posted on They Draw dot com. Scroll down on the first page to see it featured with the new designs. WOW! The artists are so amazing. The recipes always make me hungry. Haha. Or go to the design page and leave me some ❤️ and let me know your favorite way to enjoy limes. Thank you. 🥰
This design is available in fabrics, on pillows and finished textiles in my Spoonflower shop. You can also find it on mugs, bags, towels and more at Society6. I really love the Backpack. (click any image for a better view.)

I’m late, so late. For a very important date! The Art on 45 online Auction is up and running. Bids are coming in fast. Christiane would love for you to stop by and check it out. Who knows, you might just find a piece of art you love, to bid on. All the details are on the card above. (Yes, slightly blurry, sorry.)
You will have to sign in on the site if you want to vote for favorites, but you do not have to give your information to do so. Show your support for all of the amazing artists. 🙂
It’s awesome that the show is taking place live this year. A very good sign. Here’s to an awesome, successful event for Christiane, and the Louisiana Center for the Blind!
Thanks for clicking through. Have a super weekend everyone!
This will be my third year participating in the Art on 45 Art Show and Auction. It is a juried event. My first idea was to do an Arizona inspired pour. Shades of Sedona and sky. I found a few intriguing pouring videos that had me wanting to try. It’s been years since I have done pours. And I only did a few. So I thought it might be risky to try a technique that is so hard to predict. I ordered the supplies, so I have them at the ready now. Haha.
I lost count of how many layers are on this. I am guessing a dozen. And the back has almost as many. For some reason the muted aqua was drying two-toned. Maybe I didn’t mix the paint well enough. I did a few color studies, and sketched different compositions. As you can see I came back to my standard, slightly to the right, and Indigo blue. Haha. I was very tempted to center the vase. To highlight the Knock-out center of the record.
The 2021/22 ART ON 45™ auction is scheduled for March 17-19, 2022. The raised funds from this auction will benefit the Louisiana Center for the Blind (LCB), Located in Ruston, Louisiana. According to their motto “Changing What It Means to Be Blind”, the LCB offers a wide range of innovative programs and services to blind people of all ages to guide and assist them on their journeys towards leading independent and self-sufficient as well as fun and exciting lives.
I will share more as the event nears. You can also follow the event Facebook page, for introductions to the artists and their work.
What we do see depends mainly on what we look for… In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the coloring, sportsmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them. JOHN LUBBOCK
