My latest Mandala

Last week I found some sizable wooden plates at Goodwill.  I brought them home and painted this one.... I think it's rather pretty.  The iridescent paint is working quite well.  I've decided I'll be doing these as a series for a while.  This mandala drawing I did last week is currently up on eBay...


In other news:
My kids are busy with school....

A long time ago, there was no such thing as school, and children spent their days learning a trade, a phrase which here means "standing around doing tedious tasks under the instruction of a bossy adult." In time, however, people realized that the children could be allowed to sit, and the first school was invented.”-Lemony Snicket


They are adjusting quite well to their new schools at this point.  It's actually a struggle for me because for the first time ever they are in three different schools.  Which makes me feel like I'm being pulled in three different directions (which they literally are from my house, no one's school is really "on the way" to the other).  The schools here have an "activity fee" which was $50 we had to pay at enrollment to cover field trips and other events.  This is actually quite awesome, because since they started they have ALL been on field trips and had numerous special assemblies.  In California they NEEDED to do this but instead of asking parents for money they simply hardly did much in the way of outings or events.  It's nice to see them getting out of the classroom so much.

And on a final note I came in second place on this hand turkey contest!  This is the turkey that won...

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
