#Art Galore #Handmade #Folksy

Here we are again and many of you are cheering because the weekend is here. What will you do? Housework, relaxing, go away, lots of sports, crafting or will you be like me and off to work. I don`t work all weekend, just today, but it`s funny how it doesn`t feel like a weekend even when you only work half of it.
I remember when a weekend was a time to relax, spend time with the children and even lay in. Now lay-ins are a distant memory and the children are all grown up, the eldest is married with four children of her own. The eldest grandchild is 14 yrs old now, but it doesn`t seem five minutes since she was born. Come to that it doesn`t seem five minutes since my daughters were born. Where does the time go? Always so busy, busy, rushing here and there from the time we open our eyes. Although I can`t talk really as I would rather be busy than doing nothing.
Hopefully I will do some painting tomorrow. Will have to see how it goes. I have also got to do some photography as I have some things waiting to be listed. I was reading a thread on the forum about photographing items, most were saying what a chore it is to do. Getting the light right and the background, then making sure the colours are true. Often it looks fine on the camers and then once on the computer just doesn`t look right. Very often I get comments in the feedback saying how much better something is, whether crocheted, knitted or a painting, in reality, so much better than the picture. I seriously need to improve my photography skills.
The art on Folksy seems to be getting better and better as you will see when you scroll down and look at the delectable art on offer. There are so many wonderful talented artists in all sorts of mediums.
As ever, to see a larger picture or a description just click on the picture to go directly to that item in the shop.
ENJOY!

I haven`t painted for a while
I haven`t found a real style.
I play with this and that
sometimes ending up with tat.
I really do love to paint.
I think my hubby is a saint.
He puts up with yarn everywhere
and pictures and paint here and there.
I lose time till he plaintively asks,
are we eating? Then I get to my tasks.
He doesn`t cook at all you see
if we want edible, it`s left to me.
Since I rediscovered my creative side
I let so much else, like housework, slide.
Cooking is something that has to be done,
it`s become a chore no longer any fun.
I used to read a lot, 8 books a week,
but now it`s creating fun I seek.
You can tell Folksy folk love their art
from their creativity they wouldn`t part.
They do what they love and love what they do
making wonderful creations for all of you.
