Wednesday bits and bobs

This is my palette! Hard as a rock:) Fun to think about how many paintings are represented there. I've been so busy with other things lately not much of that getting done:(

Thursday night is the Mystery Art Night for Adsum House. Mystery Art is a swanky cocktail party at FRED. with sparkling wine, hors d'ouevres and live music, during which we sell the 5 x 7" art on the walls... the art will be up starting Monday Nov 23 at FRED. First in line at 6pm on Thursday Nov 26 gets their pick, all for $100. The sale lasts from 6-8, at which time we reveal the artists. Which artist did you buy? A Tom Forrestall, or a B list Hollywood actor? A Michael Martchenko, of Robert Munsch book fame, or is it a David Cowles (illustrator for Esquire, Entertainment Weekly and the New York Times)... or any number of beautiful local artists. I have a painting in there too:) I'm trying to decide whether or not to go. Tickets are $20.

My arm is a wee bit sore today but not bad really. I am just so glad I finally got the H1N1 shot. Picked up a chocolate lime cupcake at FRED on the way home to cheer myself up afterward. Cupcakes make everything better:)

Pop over and visit my friend Pat in New York, she is giving away a gorgeous Lenox china holiday teapot! She writes the most wonderful and informative posts about her city. A couple of my favourites were about the secret gardens in New York, absolutely fascinating. Three about Central Park had me wanting to jump on a plane immediately!

Also.......Thanks so much for purchasing my calendars!! They are sold out!!!!
I am wondering whether I should order any more. If you are interested, please let me know ASAP so I can get them ordered. I might get some to put on Etsy.

So glad I ordered calendars - it didn't even occur to me that you might sell out!

Do you paint with acrylics or oils? I know nothing about painting and always wonder that.

GO TO THE SHOW - it sounds like great fun!!

What an interesting concept for an art sale. I love a mystery! I'm not surprised the calendars sold out :-) Are there enough dog prints to do a dog themed one this time?

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Thank you Shelagh for spreading the word about my teapot give away!
I'm so glad you enjoy my blog.

I can't believe you sold out your calanders already! I hope you get more -- I'd like to buy one! It was just too busy this week to have time to order.

Oh that all sounds so fun and like everything is all poised to be a huge success!

I had completely intended on procuring myself one of your calendars so please let me know if you do order more :-)
