My Year in Art – Part 3

….this is the last instalment for Daily Post Countdown to the Year 2014

September - back to school so lots of children’s art, especially Kindergarten art and a trip to the AGO to see the Alex Colville show

October – leaf art, colour bugs, friendly monsters, art at the farmers’ market and artistic pumpkins

November and December - more monsters, poppies, kindergarten art -‘drawing my body’ and Picasso portraits and another on-line course called ‘Table Top Drawing and Painting’

The Daily Post Photo Challenge – Yellow

…..amidst all the red, green, silver and gold of the season the challenge was to photograph something yellow Daily Post Photo Challenge

In setting up a still life composition for a recent art assignment I noticed that all the pieces of fruit had undertones of yellow. The lemon in the middle comes forward because of the bright yellow.

Share Your World 2014 – Week 49

…..toys, candy, drinks and cash….I’m detecting a Christmas theme here

What is your preferred hot drink: coffee, tea, water, hot chocolate, or other?

I’d have to say that coffee is my preferred hot drink. I like it strong and with real cream. As a child I would have said hot chocolate and then I drank tea for years before moving on to coffee in my 30s. IMG_0090

What was your favorite toy as a child . . . and now?

As a child I remember playing with dolls and I loved ‘paint with numbers’. I also liked board games. Today my favourite ‘toy’ is my camera but I still love to paint and play board games.

Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

I’m not a huge candy fan but I do like chocolate covered peanut M & Ms. If that doesn’t count as candy my next cholce is Licorice Allsorts. Funny because I don’t like plain licorice.

Would you want $100,000 right now or $120,000 in a year (tax Free)?

I think I’d like the $120 000 over a year. An extra $10 000 a month over 12 months would be something to look forward to and I couldn’t spend it all in one go if I took a lump sum.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week I attended a couple of Christmas parties with friends and neighbours. I’m also grateful for a very successful United Way Silent Auction. The staff really pulled together and we raised the most money ever in all the years that I’ve organized this event. It was a lot of fun and people really got into the spirit of it this year. Today I took the girls’ basketball team to the west conference finals. We won the first game and moved onto the next level. Unfortunately we were beaten in the next game but I was really proud of how well the girls played.

This week I’m looking forward to two more Christmas parties and the beginning of a two week Christmas break.

Share Your World with us and join the fun.
