Where will I be 5 years from now??

Where will I be 5 years from now??

Good question!!  I know where I’d like to be…..retired and spending as much time as I can at the cabin.  This evening on our Mixed Media Monday’s with Tracy she posed the question to us.  She’s recently purchased a book with the same title written by Dan Zadra. I’m not exactly sure what the book all entails, except I do know Tracy is going to be gearing up our December challenge around it and she called me out on the section that was titled ‘Choose Your Mission’ where you write out a mission statement for yourself.  YIKES!!  This could end up being an interesting month…..lol.

Anyway, our painting challenge for this evening was to paint a page and list your top 5 values.  I did my page based on what Tracy did this evening – I just changed up the color palette a bit. I kinda wish I’d followed her lead as I loved her page, but I thought I’d try something a little different and grab some colors I don’t usually paint with.  I don’t love the page…..but I don’t hate it either.  It’s okay….


I do REALLY love the red tag and how it turned out though!  Anyway, it was hard to narrow my list of important values down to just 5, but there they are.  Here’s a couple of close up views…


Not sure exactly what she’s going to come up with for a challenge, but I’m ready for it!!

Thanks so much for checking out my post today…..I so appreciate it.
