hi everyone. I can't believe Christmas is only a few days away!! I've been busy painting little ACEOs, lots of them! the ideas keep coming. I find that around this time of year, for some reason I enjoy working small. I've done snowmen, whimsical owls, crows, but not a single girl. In fact, I need to make an angel before Christmas, and I am stuck. It's almost like I forgot how to paint girls. I see some of my favorite artists coming up with new stuff almost daily, and I feel like I'm wandering in a desert with no direction. It's not the first time this has happened, and it may have happened to you. How do you get your mojo back?
I was hoping to create a magical piece for the season, but time is ticking, and I don't know if I can pull it off. This is very disappointing, to have all these great ideas and grand plans, and to fail.
On a positive note, I am happy with the ACEOs I've been creating, an am having lots of fun with them.
On to the movie talk.....Last night, I turned on all my Christmas lights, made a nice big mug of coffee, sat under a warm blanket and watched 'The Christmas Shoes'. I love that movie! I know I mentioned it last year in a post, but it is one of my favorite new holiday movies. It is well done, not a cheap production. Very sad too, but hopeful. I would highly recommend it to anyone, but have your kleenex handy, lol!
Another great movie is a comedy called 'Call me Claus' starring Whoopi Goldberg. Hilarious, fun for the family, it is about a grumpy woman, who is told that she is to become the new Santa. I haven't watched it this year, but will be doing so before the holidays.
A newer movie I discovered last year is 'The Christmas Card', and it is about soldier in Afghanistan who is touched by a card sent by a stranger, and on his return, decides to meet her. It is a cozy film, with gorgeous scenery, a nice enjoyable treat.
There are lots of other movies I really want to see. One is 'The Christmas Choir' which I saw a preview of...unfortunately it's a Hallmark movie, and is not playing on any channels I can find. I want the DVD, but it may have to wait until next year. If anyone has seen it, I would love to hear your thoughts.
Welcome to my little blog! My name is Betty,(or Pink, as people like to call me...) here you will find musings on art, life, and anything else that may come up. I hope to inspire, and encourage people to live out their best life!
