Random 5 Friday

Times flies when you're having fun...

Random 5 Friday is here again!

1.  Sleep can be overrated, yet I NEED it! This week I had another of those sleepless nights.  Is it because I'm older, much older.  I see those commercials and magazine articles saying that it's a real problem for OLD women!  Hey, I'm not OLD!

2.  Had a neat experience while in art class this week.  I was painting away on my 4'x 6' project "Sunrise" when some guy walked through and came around my easel saying he just had to see what was on the other side.  He gasped and started saying how much he loved it and the colors and that it would look perfect on his wall in his home in Dallas.  I had to to tell him that it was sold and he wanted to see some of my impressionist flowers I do.  He gave me his card and wants to possibly paint him another HUGE painting like this...(this is not finished yet).  The whole room, including my instructor became quiet listening to our exchange of cost and stuff.  WHAT!

3.  Think my tiller is going to get a workout tomorrow afternoon.  Paint in the morning and till in the afternoon!  

4.  Cuteness = Rio

5.  Thinking of finding a spa to go to again.  The Hubby is going to Australia in a few months and the last time he took a big trip (Africa) I went to Lake Austin Spa!  Spa time!

Congrats on the art admire-er. That's great. Wish someone with a wallet would admire my photographs.
Rio does = cute.

How cool that you have a new customer - no, wait - in the art world he would be a patron - even cooler. Too bad you can't go to Australia with your husband, but with that cute granddaughter to look after, might be more fun to stay here.

It's always exciting when someone notices your talent -- but when they want to buy it -- is such a boost! Congratulations!

That is a beautiful painting.
I can identify with the sleepless nights. Here lately I wake up just after midnight and stare at the ceiling for hours :(
