Good Morning!
What a beautiful day this is going to be! Just made breakfast for my man who is laid up on the recliner. He feel a week ago and had to have a plate and pins put in his leg. Feel a little helpless because I can't do much for him. :(
The exciting news is I was interviewed on CBC news this week! Nothing like deciding to share my art with my friends and now the whole community. Can't wait to see where this all goes.
Off to buy more paint for some pictures I am working on. A reminder that the show is next weekend in High River at the Culture Center from 6:30 - 9:30pm.
Looking forward to having a fun night and seeing all of you.

Sleepless in High River

Good Morning!
Two weeks until our little Art Show....getting very excited!

Yesterday my wonderful hubby slipped on some ice. He's at the hospital waiting for surgery right now. No wonder I couldn't sleep, he's not beside me!

Working on a Saskatchewan sunset this morning. Many thanks to Shelbie Goodsman for the beautiful picture that I am using for my inspiration! Enjoy your day everyone!

saying good bye!

Make sure the important people in your life know how important they are before its too late.

We will be saying goodbye to Grandpa McDougall tomorrow. My mother-in-law, Carol was by his side on monday morning and I have been thinking about this quote. Death is final. No more opportunities to let the ones we love know how much they mean to us. So here I am letting everyone know how thankful I feel this morning for my friends and family. I am completely surrounded by people who are such an encouragement and always there to pick me up when I am down. I am not perfect and have had lots of bumps along the way, but it's nice to know that I can be forgiven and loved in spite of my many imperfections. So I hope that if you are thinking about someone you love today, you will just give them a call or drop them an email while you have the chance to do it! Have a great weekend everyone!

Here I am in Medicine Hat for the weekend and loving every minute! Marissa and I have been having some long overdue 'girls' time! Some groceries were bought, cookies were made, a few chicken dishes were cooked and put into containers for future used and quality time together enjoyed! She is currently studying away for another mid-term tomorrow morning. All I can say is this....drawing is MY thing and she can have her nursing textbooks!!!! I spent the day yesterday finding some of the craziest, unique and colorful animals and insects I could. God is definately the most talented artist around!
Last week I finished another page and thought I would share it with you all! I'm almost finished!

The artful procrastinator!

Good morning guys!
So excited about today! Routes magazine is out and I am on the cover! I haven't seen it yet, but my good friend Lee-Anne just called to assure me it looks good. Neville I am sure did wonders with photoshop!!!!
Our art show is in a month.....
What can I say. Oh boy, lots of work to do. For some reason I still after all these years continue to feel that it isn't fun until the pressures on.
1.   I have almost completed another page for my froggie book
2 .  Trying to do some illustrating and painting for the show
3.  Pretending like I  am a great house keeper and wife......

 I have also started a facebook page, karon argue. I have to admit keeping up with social media is hard, so thanks for your continued patience with me. Have a great day everyone!
