Fall ART

Everyone always teased Mama about "talking with your hands."
Daddy used to say, "If I tied your hands behind your back you couldn't say a word."
She used her hands for everything.
She loved digging in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, and painting.

I've recently been dabbling around with this art stuff. 
As I said before, I like to "dabble."  That's about what my art is.

My daughter-in-love gets ready for Fall early, so I decided to start practicing early so I could it get right in time for her decorating.

I combined some of the art from my classes to make a tiled chalk/art board to hang in my kitchen. 
I decapauged my favorite photo in the middle.
Don't you love the abstract tile???
It was supposed to be flowers. I couldn't get them right so I just took the brush and went at it!
In case you don't know, the top, middle tile is a pear.

This was fun, but not perfect enough for my DIL's new house.
I'll keep trying.

Looks easy, huh?  NOT! 
I finally quit after two hours.  Will add some more later.
