*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Saturday, January 27, 2018

Hi Everyone
Hope you're doing well.
Remember, depending where you are, there is a very powerful full moon coming up January 30-31st. It comes with a lunar eclipse. Because it's the second full moon of the month, it's called a "Blue Moon", and it's also a Super Moon!

I've been working on a painting. It's not finished yet.
This is where I'm at now.
Close up.
Some of you mentioned about my mom's Christmas Cactus. It's about 30 years old. It's an inside plant. My mom takes a large kitchen knife to it, around every other year and replants it, other wise it would get root bound. If no one wants the part of the plant she has cut out (usually half the plant), unfortunately it gets thrown out. She does fertilize it with a special cactus juice. Mom is the inside plant girl and I'm the outside one! LOL!
Big Hugs ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. About 30 years ago, I used Christmas cactuses for a science experiment thing I was doing at school. I never asked my mom what she did with them afterwards.

    A few weeks ago, my aunt posted a picture on facebook where she was standing next to a HUGE potted Christmas cactus. Apparently, it's one of the plants I used for my experiment 30 years ago!

    Crazy.

  10. Love this painting! Your mom sounds like my grandma .. she'd break off pieces of plants and just push them in the dirt. She had things growing all over the place

  12. You are very talented! The crow is def you totem animal. There is beauty in that. I am hoping the sky will cooperate this week to view the moon, but i know I will feel it's magnetic pull.

    Sounds like you two are a perfect plant duo. :)

  15. Seeing how your paintings progress is always kind of amazing. Whenever I do work, you can normally tell EXACTLY what it's going to be from the get-go, but your's always seems to just flow and build.

  16. Love when you post your paintings in stages. It's interesting how you go about it. I'm hoping for a clear night sky for the super blue moon. Lately it's been cloudy.

  19. Love how your painting is shaping up. My mom had a green thumb for indoor plants, too. Her specialty was African violets.

  20. I do like how your painting is coming along, and interesting to see the different pictures showing the work in progress.

    I thought your Moms Christmas Cactus was spectacular.
    My dear mum used to be good with indoor plants ...
    I like to see flowers around the house.

    Have a lovely week

    All the best Jan

  21. I always like to see your work in progress.

    It's very early on Wednesday morning that we can see the lunar eclipse, but I don't think we're going to miss it.

  25. HAHA We were coveting that cactus TOO! We have one that is much younger and we marveled at how lush and gorgeous her's is! Good to know it's been around so long and that we might get ours to that point eventually. Thanks for passing along some of her care tips too.

    We are also casting a little spell of hope for clear skies since we are in prime viewing territory here for the full/super/blood moon! I'd hate to step outside and look up and know its right up there. . . behind the clouds. lol

    Love seeing the progress of your work Stacy! Can't wait to see where it ends up.

    Here's to clear skies ahead!

    BIG CROW HUGS! XX

  30. Our sky is overcast today, but I hope we'll get to see the moon tomorrow. Snow on the ground and a super moon in the sky, it would be quite cool. Really love the background colors of the painting, and not just the red. :-D

  31. I tried taking s picture of the moon tonight, but it didn’t come out. It looks amazing. :)

  33. that is one cool painting!! I have a Christmas cactus and it needs to be separated and rooted - my aloe vera plants are going wild and i can probably get five more plants from separating .

  35. This painting is awesomely cool. What a crowlicious imagination you have.

  36. I'm working backwards, so I know the finished result of your compelling painting, Stacy. Thanks for telling us more about the Christmas cactus that you Mom has cared for for so long. I was replying to you earlier, but got shut down from working on my computer. One of the Canadian residents at the hotel, Nelson, is from York Factory (he's Mรฉtis). He invited a well-known Hawaiian steel guitarist Greg ? in to play along with him on the piano. Partway through, some nondescript, shy man came up and took over the steel guitar (another Hawaiian steel guitarist) while Greg started playing the ukulele. It was amazing, and a few feet away the rain lashed down. Some of the female guests in the hotel had made Valentine cookies and cupcakes and fudge, and laid them out on the computer table. It was a fun time. Greg, the steel guitarist had to drive from Kailua and had been delayed 40 minutes because of the torrential rain and lanes closed on the freeway. I love staying at the Royal Grove. It's such a real place. I hope that you had a great day! Hugs to you!
