Do You Canoe

I ran outside with my "Tweety Bird" lounging pants on and a cropped tank top, hoping my neighbors would not see me taking these pictures! I know these are awful pics, but what the hey! Geezzz, my grass looks awful, not the best summer, weather wise.
So I received a phone call last week from someone that represented one of the associations in Marietta, OH, asking me if I would paint this oar that will be given as an award during their Catfish Festival in a few weeks. They wanted it to be like the work I did for the city last year! Of course, I immediately said yes...and knew there would be NO money involved...I do have that flaw, I have a tendency to take on work without profit involved...I like to get my name out there and help the community, and I know a girl still has to eat...but I can't help myself. They got it sanded and will put a sealer on it so I don't have to do that.
Notice how my my yard cherub is staring at this wondering what my imagination will bring to this old piece of very used wood. So, I have been staring at this all day, too, while I am working on other things, and haven't a clue as to what the hell I am going to paint, for no profit, once again...Pics will be posted as soon as it is completed!


  1. The best things in life are free :) I cant wait to see the finished piece

  3. Well, Suzi, I can't wait to see what you are going to do with this - for free... We all to that to an extend, don't we? It's part of the fun! :) Silke
