Every Day in June: Day 3 "Music"

Many years ago this was music to my ears. I miss hearing it.

Yesterday I worked on a window scene.  All the figures turned out nice...but then I tried to paint the window itself and it was just terrible!  Today I carefully cut out the figures and glued them onto a new window.  I like the overall effect because now the figures look like they are sitting on the sill...which they are. Unfortunately, it has been washed out with the scanning process.

Just for fun

This is a quick sketch from my sketch journal that I did of my colored pencil box-a tupperware box that I've kept colored pencils in since high school. I was in high school in the 1980's...so it has been a while.

Haven't posted in a while, but I have done some artwork. Just thought I'd finally take the time to upload them to the blog.

Game Boards for Haiti

At church we were given a sermon on the parable of the mina. Remember when Jesus told the story of a man who gave three of his servants an amount of money and then he went away on a journey? When he came back, he found that two of the servants had increased their amount, but the third had not. You can find the parable in Matthew 25:14-30.
Anyway, at the close of the sermon, two missionaries spoke about their experience down in Haiti. Then we as a congregation were given a challenge. Each adult in the room was given an envelope with an amount of money in it. We were asked to go and invest it in some way to try and increase it. We will be bringing all of the money back to church to give as a gift for Haiti Relief. I took my money and Jamie's money (total amount of $30) and bought supplies to make 2 game boards. I have decided to raffle at least one of the game boards off. I may raffle off both of them if there is enough interest.
So: if you are interested, read on!
Each game board is double sided. On one side of the game board is the game "Aggravation" and on the other is "Chinese Checkers."They are each hand-painted by me. Here are a few pictures of the detail that I put into it.

Each game board also comes with a draw string bag that I sewed that holds all of the pieces needed for the game and also instructions on how to play.
Raffle tickets are each $5.00. All proceeds will go to the relief fund for Haiti. You can buy as many tickets as you want. Please put "Mina Project" in the subject line so I know that I can open it.
