Bob Ross

Julie Fillo Does anyone besides me find Bob Ross's voice and the way he talks to be incredibly sexy? I don't really watch him, I just listen to him. His afro sort of puts me off if I look at him. Just close your eyes and listen. You will get all shivery. I think it's because he whispers. He whispers about painting. Jeesh!

An old painting

I sold this painting recently, and I'm sad about it. Hopefully it will be as loved in it's new home as I have loved it.
I keep telling myself I can paint something new that I will love as much
but I don't know.
I don't know how to start without her.

Week 41 - 52 week project 5x7 print Whale with a Wicked Grin

I have been rather busy this week, not much time for painting, There is one more in this whale series, the whale with the moon, and I am not sure which size that will print to. I am going to leave all the whales at $2 so you can buy the set if you like. As soon as I can, I will list the larger whale moon print.

Week 40 - 52 Week Project Julie Fillo Whale With Wistful Grimace 5x7 print

So here is this weeks print, I can't believe I am at week 40. Only 12 weeks to go!
I want to post some beautiful pillows I got from Jenny Elkins, but I was so busy painting today that I did not get a picture in daylight, and they deserve daylight, people.
I am watching the grandsons tomorrow, so it will probably be tuesday or wednesday before I get to it.
I am watching them at a hotel because their condo caught fire on Jan 31. Everyone is ok. But boy has our family been through it in the last few weeks. Really wondering if we will survive.
I know I also need to post photos of the redecorating. I hung paintings today, so when I take pics of Jenny's pillows, I will try to do that too.
