|Slices and Stripes by Polly Jones|
I tend to have a subconscious that's embarrassingly easy to decipher. I must have chosen three slices of limes to symbolize our family of three reunited...our daughter is back home after study abroad for a semester!!!

|Carnival Glass by Polly Jones|
I promise, this is the last time I invite you to our reception tonight! It's from 5:30 - 8:30 at The ACU Downtown Gallery, 1133 N 2nd Street, Abilene, Texas during ArtWalk. The painting above will be in the show. It's my favorite one lately. In fact, I'm about to go pick up some postcards with that image on it for handing out tonight. Just a little bit last minute.

|Punch by Polly Jones|
My mother gave me this punch bowl that she's had for a very long time. Does anyone out there remember S&H Green Stamps? This was bought with green stamps back in the day. I had been meaning to paint the bowl for some time, but it seemed overwhelming. It was just humming in the background until the day I noticed at the grocery store that a pineapple has a similar pattern to the cut glass pattern of the bowl.

|Daffodils, Faltering Light by Polly Jones|
I'm not a terribly brave person. I've never been sky diving or physically adventurous in that way. Sometimes, however, something happens while painting that, for me, requires a lot of courage. I get a huge thrill when I feel like I'm in over my head trying to capture an image or attempt something that's out of my skills range. It doesn't always end well but it's exciting to try. I've been having ups and downs lately, looming art show etc. Originally, I planned to show process shots of the work for the show but have been too busy some times and feeling too vulnerable at other times. Thanks for looking at my work and please stay tuned.

|Granny on Stripes by Polly Jones|
The stripes got built up a bit since I kept changing my mind about the colors. I'm trying to use other colors than the blues that I tend to rely on. However it still crops up in the map parts.
Thanks for the pinterest follows! I have enjoyed seeing what you guys are pinning. Now, for tips on how not to spend entire days looking at everything over there.

|Monster Arilla by Eden|
Nowadays, there's a boys and girls club after school program at our church where I facilitate an art or craft time each week. It can get a little crazy because of the wide age range and the come and go structure. Last week, we did paper bag puppets. My projects don't always go as planned. A lot of times it goes far better. For instance, the monster pictured above was made instead of the traditional paper bag puppet. I would love to have such confident abandon with materials....no worrying about too many googly eyes!
Here's my pinterest board for project ideas. Please let me know if you have a board for that too. I'm always on the lookout for ideas.

|Raspberries, Not Local by Polly Jones|
|detail of Raspberries, Not Local|
Hope your Christmas was wonderful! Ours was. There's always that let down afterwards, so nothing gets me out of the blues like painting. I really wanted to capture the glow that raspberries have in sunlight. I didn't quite do it, so you must promise me that you'll really look at yours before you eat them next time.
