I played with your pictures and I am all done!

Looking at people who belong to us,
we see the past, present, and future.

Jammy Day and ...

... the beginning of a new creation!
A vintage ironing board destined
for the dump ...
I so want to find a new purpose for objects that have served their masters well. If only this ironing board could talk. Her legs had seen far better days, but as for her ... she is destined to become a work of art.
She could be turned into a tall thin Santa ... she is the perfect shape
and I love to paint Santas. Or ...
she could become the backdrop for the Holy Family.
Joseph, Mary and the infant Jesus fit nicely within her perimeter.

She was primed today and the sketching has begun.

What are your thoughts, Santa or Holy Family?
