Our weather is turning. This plant isn't long for this world if I don't get it out of that pot and planted. But it is hanging on like a trooper, blooming away! EDM #136 was to draw something that was living. As of today, it's living! Tomorrow.....????
.......this is probably tempting the snow gods, as I post this.
On my way home from school, I pass a field with my favorite snack. Well....maybe not exactly! These cows are affectionately known as "oreos' because of their similar coloring. I had never seen them until I moved to New England, and still marvel each time I do. They are actually Belted Galloways, a hardy Scottish breed of beef cows. Real cattle fanciers refer to them as 'belties', and they were imported to the USA around the 1950's. To be a true beltie, they have to be solid black with the single white band around their middles....no other white spots anywhere.
The cool thing is, these oreos come with their own milk!
It was the final farewell concert being held in Giant's Stadium before being demolished later this year. Springsteen first performed here in 1985, with his then-new tour 'Born In The USA". In honor of this being the last concert here, he did the Born In The USA album in its entirety....to the THRILL of his home state, Jersey crowd! He opened with "Wrecking Ball", a new tune written just for this event. The 60,000 seat stadium was packed to the gills, including the entire floor. Many highlights to this 3 hour performance, including fireworks above the open air stadium, to wrap up. SO glad we went!
This is for EDM#147 challenge...draw something made of wood. This is an oak armoire purchased when living in New Mexico. I have it filled with quilts that I made. Guess I should have colorized...may save that for another post!
I spent 9 1/2 hours, today, working on this...so all of you are going to see it! Our church is building a cafe area, and this is the coffee-shop-style chalkboard I did for the effort. Several unknowns, for me, in this project. It is the first time I worked on anything this big (4' X 6'), the board was painted directly on the wall (chalkboard paint) and also my intial run at using chalk inks.
