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. The copies of the original prints are much more affordable before making that investment… I have done this contest before. It is my way of promoting our store of the Artist’s original artwork and it’s a lot of fun too.

The contest will be a drawing that I will post on this blog. I think there will be only one rule which I have put on below. (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 !!!

We have one rule to be eligible for the contest. First click on any of the links below and to see all of his amazing original artwork. Then either leave a comment or simply a, “Like,”on any of the the post’s that feature his artwork on WordPress or our Instagram site… It’s that easy 😉 .Handmade by Amazon or our Instagram site.

Happy Summer and it’s Two for Tuesday

It’s Summertime again…Y A Y !!! The Artist i.e. the husband will start back to work this week. He’s happy and so am I. Time to get back to my life as a homemaker and the #painterswife ❤ …

Today I’m going to feature 2 of the Artist original oil painting’s. We have also been researching on how to market his original oil painting’s and have found a way to make prints of his original works which will make it much more affordable for you to own some of his beautius original oil painting’s…

The Artist ❤

Today the 1st piece of artwork is his finished piece of an original by Vincent Van Gogh. The title of this piece is the Potatoe Eater’s…

The Potatoe Eater /Vincent Van Gogh

This was his latest piece that he worked on during this past Spring.

The 2nd featured oil painting for today is an original piece. I thought it was kind of creepy but it really feels like the title. The title for this painting is, “Pandemic.”

Pandemic

If you are interested in any of this artwork, you can leave me a msg. in the comments section of my blog.

I am in the process of getting our Instagram set up and you can also see more of his painting’s by clicking on the, “Elan Creations” widget on the right side of the blog.

Happy Summer everyone, let’s make it the best one ever ❤ Blessings ❤ .

March’s Masterpiece…

Good Tuesday morning blogging family ❤ Hope everyone had a great weekend. Our Chicago Blackhawks split the games this weekend. Patrick Kane got his 400th goal so that was fun to watch. Still no Toews though… Wonder what’s up with the Captain.

My rose did not make it through the snowstorm 😦 The other one didn’t do much better either..

This was before the snowstorm and what it looked like through January …I think some music would fit nicely here…

My Yellow Rose

The painter finished his Potatoe Eater’s/Vincent Van Gogh’s…It turned out really well don’t you think 😉 ….

The Potatoe Eater’s/Vincent Van Gogh

He now has been officially published in the February Edition of Inspirations/Illinois Arts Council Agency…Galena Center for the Arts ❤ .

Inspirations

That’s all for today…Blessings ❤

Monday’s Masterpiece

Happy Monday, Blogging fam…Hoping everyone had the best weekend ever and that your team won yesterday. We had didn’t have a dog in the race so all we did was make fun food. I tried my hand at a, “Beautiful Board !!”

It was so good and sooo much fun to make. I added some Queso Dip w/Pretzel Bread and some little smoky’s with sauce, very delicious ❤ .

The husband has been working on on The Potato People, oops I mean the Potato Eater’s…Here is his progression.

Looking good

Finally today we are still freezing and yes it’s snowing again but I’m indoors with the love of my life, the husband and this morning when we went out to get coffee I remember why I fell in love with him. We had our singing moment, love the singing brings me back to when we were a couple of kids just loving life. Here’s the song we were singing too, we each know our parts 😉 Enjoy

thankful thursday

“Are You My Mother” is the title of this post’s featured picture…This was when we first got little Mz. Rosie and she thought our sweet Mz. Bella was her mom, awwww too cute !!! ❤ .

Good Thursday morning blogger’s, same song, second verse, blah, blah, blah…Winter Weather Advisory…yes more snow, wind, ice, and below zero temperatures !!! January in Chicago, but life is always so much better when you are thankful for a new day, no matter..

Just a few updates to share with my blogging fam…The Potato People is coming along…

The Potato Eater’s/Vincent

The artist will be working on his painting this weekend b/c I’m sure we will be inside. It’s payday this week. That’s always a good thing. I’m getting my hair done with my very best friend’s tomorrow so looking forward to that.

I think I’ll add some music today. Music soothes the soul and can heal. Singing and dancing is the fabric of my life. It gets me through the worst of times ❤ . This ones for you Connie ❤ .

The “Vid” seems to be going away, imagine that. Who would have thunk that after President Trump was out of office, all of the sudden it’s gone. They really must thing we’re stupid, NOT…. I live in a blue state so for some reason they want us shut down still. I guess that fat old Pritzker wants to get as many of the fed’s dollar’s to waist as he can. I’m not going to think about him, I’m just going to focus getting out of here (Illinois) asap !!!! Move to a red state, and find some freedom and sanity while this is still America land of the free !!!!

Here’s a thought to think about. When your 20 years old, you have a heart ❤ . When your 40 years old, you now have a brain 😉 . Thank God, I’m in the latter category 🙂 …

Signing off for this morning, time for coffee with the husband and get my day going…He’s out on a walk with our new friend Mz. Rosie ❤ She’s a bundle of energy and has so much Rosie Love ❤ …

A Work in Progress…Monday’s Masterpiece

The Artist is still working on the Potato People i.e. Eater’s…Looking good so far. He keeps saying you have to remember this guy (Vincent) was a CooCoo Bird. I guess you might draw that conclusion from looking at this painting. I think you might have to dig a little deeper than that though. Here is how he’s progressing with Monday’s Masterpiece…

The Potato Eater’s
This is where he left off on Sunday Evening…

It’s coming along nicely don’t you think. We spent most of the weekend indoors b/c of all the snow. Binge watching, “Friends” of all things. That was Saturday night and then yesterday was, “The Dead Poets Society” and we watched the Chicago Blackhawk’s vs. CBJ win Y A Y…

A Work in Progress

Vincent Van Gough…One of his first painting’s…”The Potato Eater’s” I think, “The Potato People” is a better title, but shhhhh don’t tell the painter he’ll definitely give me that look. You know the look, “What are you thinking,” look. I’m calling it the The Potato People, 😉 …

The Artist begins the painting, “The Potato Eater’s.”
The Artist continues…
Getting a lot done, better than snow blowing 🙂

Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Song Lyric Sunday fellow blogger’s…Todays prompt from Mr. Jim is, “Chat/Laugh/Rant/Scream/Talk.” Oh brother, here we go again, if it’s not broken, stop fixing it. WordPress has changed things around again, ughhh. I suppose I’ll learn it, after all what choice do I have. I digress, sorry. WordPress has made creating a link different but I figured it out. This is my song for today. It makes me feel a little bit old, but I have decided that is kind of a good thing. I have learned so much this far and when I think of things people have said to me, it makes me smile b/c I think I’ve been there, done that 😉 and I’m glad I’m past that place in time. Because some of it wasn’t that great to begin with and they don’t even know the road they’re on is long and it’s not always an easy one. It’s fun watching, b/c I’m good and I already made it. Their tunnel is long and they can’t even see the light yet. Back to the Song Lyric Sunday…

Midnight Cowboy

Everybody’s Talkin’

Everybody’s talking at me
I don’t hear a word they’re saying
Only the echoes of my mindPeople stopping, staring
I can’t see their faces
Only the shadows of their eyesI’m going where the sun keeps shining
Through the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothesBanking off of the northeast winds
Sailing on a summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stoneI’m going where the sun keeps shining
Through the pouring rain
Going where the weather suits my clothesBanking off of the northeast winds
Sailing on a summer breeze
And skipping over the ocean like a stoneEverybody’s talking at me
Can’t hear a word they’re saying
Only the echoes of my mindI won’t let you leave my love behind
No, I won’t let you leave
I won’t let you leave my love behind

I admit I never watched the movie and the song came from the husband…He’s a couple of years older than me, 4 years to be exact. He knows a lot of different songs so he’s a big help. I’ll give you a peak at Monday’s Masterpiece. He’s working on another one of Vincent Van Gogh’s first paintings. I keep calling it, “The Potato People.” Of course that’s not right it’s the, “Potato Eater’s.” 😉 …

The Potato Eater’s

Well it’s suppose to be a stormy Monday and boy do I hope it goes south or north but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. Whatever, it’s January in Chicago so I’m really over it. Blessing blogger’s on your week. Stay safe out there and be well.
