Monday’s Masterpiece

Good Monday morning <3 Hoping everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July…The Artist and me had a wonderful weekend…Road Trip out to our fav places from back in the day 😉

Then on Sunday the 4th was a chill kind of day w/the Artist painting and me planning…Love, love, love to plan. Today will just be a reset kind of day where we keep wondering what day it is 😉 Does that happen to anyone else on these 3 day weekends ???

The other painting he just started yesterday, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a fav of mine !!! Don’t forget you can visit our Handmade by Amazon site and purchase any of his amazing artwork…Just follow the link <3

The weekend started out really great with me and the granddaughter getting our hair done, Chic Filet for lunch and then of course Starbucks to top off the fun day…

So much fun at the salon…Shout out to our forever beauty stylist…Mz. Lisa <3 Thank you so much for making us beautiful again <3 . Oh and I can’t forget the flower’s my wonderful husband bought for me <3 .

Back to business this week, a lot of irons in the fire. Starting a major remodel on the home but then by the end of this year it will all be done. I will update with pics of our beautius home. Let’s enjoy the rest of the summer. Busy, busy month w/birthday’s, anniversary (42nd <3 ) and vacation to New Smyrna Beach, Florida Y A Y !!!! Blessings Blogger’s on your Monday <3 … 😉

Write Anything Wednesday…Elan Creations/Contest Update

Hello Blogger’s…I don’t know where the time goes. I definitely need a plan, schedule, or anything that remotely looks like a, “TO DO/TODAY LIST”. I Think I need to blame it on the hus b/c for Father’s Day I updated him to the 21st century with his little techno gadgets, i.e. a new IPhone 11 and a new Apple Watch. Well OMG what a nightmare, but I digress. We got the new phone activated and now we are working on the watch !!! He really looks very cool with all of the stuff 😉 .

Happy Father’s Day

You definitely deserve it and you wear it well !!! It looks great on you <3 We love you dad <3

Elan Creations Summer Contest/Handmade by Amazon

It’s contest time !!!! Y A Y… We have a Handmade by Amazon acct. where we sell the Artist’s Original artwork. They aren’t the original’s but they are really great prints. There is also more information on The Artist and Elan Creations… The original’s are available for sale too, prices are negotiable if you are interested.

It is my way of promoting our store of the Artist’s original artwork and it’s a lot of fun too.

(keeping it simple) Then from that I assign a number in the order that I receive the entires and I pull the number from that. The number I assign to you, is the number that comes in the order of when you enter. You can enter as many times you want too. The more you enter, the better your chances and it’s free to enter !!!! Then the number you get, is put in the drawing. There is only 1 winner and the winner will receive a print of their choice from our store Handmade by Amazon…

I will film the drawing so you will be able to watch. All you have to do is basically look at all his amazing Artwork and comment on a post that features any of his amazing artwork. I hope you will enter the contest and start your collection of some beautius artwork. It’s really a lot of fun !!!

Hello Monday AtoZ Blogger’s

Today’s letter for the AtoZ Challenge is

My 3 choices today are Dance, Door and Death….

The first painting he did around this past Christmas. It is a painting of our son Matthew who had an amazing Dance career.

Matthew our 3rd son/The Ballet Dancer

For my next choice is a painting he did of a door. It’s a sweet door of cottage somewhere…

The Cottage Door

My final choice for today’s letter is a painting he worked on during the lockdown and all this Covid Pandemic … It really says it all…

Death/Pandemic

These are my choice for today. I hope you are enjoying all of his amazing artwork. Remember we have a site where all of this artwork can be purchased. Just use the link below to go to his Amazon site. Blessings AtoZ Bloggers’s <3 . I hope your Easter was great. Happy Monday, Happy Week <3 .

Happy Good Friday

AtoZ today is the letter

I have picked out 3 paintings for today’s post…I told you at the start I would have no trouble with finding an original painting for each letter in the AtoZ Challenge.

My first choice is the painting titled, “Boots” I really love this one because I see a passion in his work… He has always had an amazing work ethic and this painting has that certain feeling to it … He has always been an extremely hard worker, he just doesn‘t quit and quite frankly that is why he had me at, “Hello” <3 .

Boots

My second choice is one of the Artist’s favorite thing to paint and that is the Beach…I’m sure that is where his heart lives and breathes…

The Beach

The third choice for the letter “B” is going to be, “Boat”. I have named this boat, “The Tradewinds”…

The Tradewinds

As I revisit his paintings’s, I am reminded just what a talented artist he is <3 I hope you are enjoying his beautius artwork <3 Happy Friday, Happy Easter…

Remember you can check out his artwork for sale on the link below….Enjoy your weekend AtoZ blogger’s

Monday’s Masterpiece

I’m going topic off a bit. I usually concentrate on one of the Artist’s Masterpiece’s that he worked on over the weekend, but this weekend I took the Artist out for a treat. Actually it was his Christmas Present. For Christmas this past year I bought him tickets to Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Chicago.

It was amazing !!! Just take a look and see for yourself 🙂 Much better live !!!

I got to take a few souvenirs home with me so that too was kind of exciting !!!

Vincent Van Gough

I just had to put up some music with this too. One of my Favorite songs of all time…

The artist had a really great time and so did I. I even saw a lot of Vincent Van Gogh Painting’s that looked a little familiar…Definitely a very deep, complex man.

The Potato Eater’s
Sunflowers

Okay I’ll share one more…He’s been a very busy painter !!!

Okay just one more b/c this was definitely at the show !!!

Looking forward to AtoZ which starts in a couple of days…April 1st to be exact. I got worried that I didn’t have enough art to make it through the AtoZ…Well I have plenty of art and then some. Really looking forward to sharing it with you. Check back on Wednesday where I’l have a bio on the Artist 😉 (Husband) . He really is very talented !!!

Monday’s Masterpiece

Happy Monday fellow blogger’s. I hope everyone had a great weekend. They do go by so fast though. Mine was really busy which is a good thing and the weather was really good !!!

Monday’s Masterpiece will always be the featured picture of the blog post, unless I change it. In that case, I will let you know… 😉 Today’s Monday’s Masterpiece is one of my favorites. The Artist (Husband) painted this one for me and had it framed. It is hanging in my Kitchen and I just love it. The title of it is, “Basket of Apples”.

The Artist was painting a lot this weekend. Here are a few of the images he is currently working on…

I bought myself some flowers this weekend and that always bring a smile to my face 🙂

Pretty Weekend Flowers

One more picture to share. I found the cousin picture that I was looking for. I did a post on St. Patrick’s Day of the 1st Cousin’s picture, then I found the later one where we are older <3 There were a lot of us…

1st Cousin Picture

I am one of four sister’s…We are on the end, stage left. Sister Liz is in the green dress, I’m down in front of Sister Liz, with my hand in my mouth…Sister Kay is to the left of me and Mary the oldest Sister has her hand around Sister Kay’s shoulder. We were close in age, only 4 years separating all of us from oldest Mary, to the youngest me…Let’s just say, high school was interesting for our dad.

2nd Cousin Picture/At the Farm/Family Reunioun

It was kind of fun this weekend b/c we were all trying to figure out who was who and what year it was. Kind of a, “Where’s Waldo,” game… The years do fly by. I’m in the middle with the pig tails and red/white/blue striped shirt and the girl directly in back of me is my oldest sister Mary, and the one right next to Mary (stage right) is my older sister Liz. Another one of my sister’s is all the way on the end (stage left) I guess you might think I was a theater mom 😉 and you’d be right. Kay was all in blue with kind of a wonky look on her face. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t smiling. When the cousin’s get together, we all talk about this picture and how glad we were that Aunt Patti made us take the picture..Two more cousins were born after the picture but we never got another one taken with all the cousins.

This week looks to be warmer and wetter and then maybe even some snow… I really hate March but I’ll take the couple of warmer days. At least we are getting closer to April <3 . I’m going to be setting up my new planner which I don’t have a name for her yet. I’ll probably be posting a lot about that. Also I am working on getting our site for #Elan Creations up and running again, definitely stay tuned for that.

Have a Happy Monday and a great week !!! Blessings Blogger’s <3 …

Masterpiece Monday/AtoZ Theme Reveal

A new challenge and this is one of my fav’s of all time, AtoZ Theme Reveal I’m pretty sure I haven’t done this one before. I have chose the Artistst’s Artwork. Having been pretty much home for the last year, thank you Covid19, not…The husband has been able to do a lot of paintings. I’m pretty sure I have A to Z in the paintings. Will be looking forward to this challenge. Here is the latest one he is now working on…

Old Port/Portland, ME

We lived in Portland, ME for a short time and hopefully we will be able to get back their. It is a beautiful place and we both want to live their again…I know the weather and winter’s are quite the challenge but we are born and raised Chicagoan’s so we know the drill. I have most of his painting’s named so it should probably work out well. I’ve kept the names rather simple. I might add that all of his work is for sale (a bit of self promotion) which I hope is allowed. I also have a widget on the right of his artwork, “Elan Creations” which will bring you to Amazon Handmade.

I hope you will enjoy the artwork. He is a very talented artist. Never took a lesson at all, The Artist Wife <3 .
