Art & Soul Retreat in Virginia Beach this weekend to paint and play with my own personal, modern-day Master... Mindy Murphy Lacefield! Yippee! I'll be taking her Play Journal workshop where she'll coax students to let out their inner child and play and get lost in the process of painting, writing, and journaling.
Paint Your Story online workshop...
True Free Spirit class online...
Now that's what I call a Master!

I was loving the brightly neon, obnoxious color combinations and so I tied them into a few favorite themes of mine... the circus and candy. I added a tent in the clouds and a pinwheel lollipop garden... and this dreamy canvas was born. You can't really go wrong when you paint what you love.

Eh, maybe they're out of my price range for not knowing what I'll do with them.
Maybe I'll just buy one. Yeah, that would make sense and probably fit my budget. But how could I leave one head behind? Which one would I choose? Ugh.
Maybe I can use Lincoln's head as a part of hybrid animal assemblage?
Or maybe I'll make a really, really tall rag doll.
Perhaps I can gather up some of my tin items and have a Tin Man Lincoln?
Ooooh! Maybe I can use their heads on a carnival style assemblage.... like some weird ride or something... with giant Lincoln heads on top of the "building"... and teeny arms beckoning the children to come inside! Yeah, that's it!
And, you know what? When I trepidatiously brought them to the counter and asked their price... the kind-hearted gentleman behind the counter said...
I said, "each?"
Nope, $5 for both.
So I walked out with my twin Lincoln heads, smiling all the way home. Now to just find some time to bring my wild idea to life!
