Friday!

Art Day! It began at 9am when I went to the Craig Srebnik demonstration (which was great). After that I went to lunch at Five Spice Seafood with my art friend Jim King. (Guess what?......... we talked about ART!) In the evening I went to the Jacobsen Family Show at Art on the Boulevard. I did paint something myself today ....but I didn't get very far with it, so I'll work on it again tomorrow. Meanwhile.......

This is Olivia Jacobsen. She is standing with her beautiful orange tree/green house painting....(and see the red dot on the label? I am the lucky new owner !)

(L to R) Back row: Christine, Max and Eric  Front row: Owen, (baby Stella) and Olivia Jacobsen 

So yes, this was a great art day....how was your Friday?

I like to paint because I want to be an artist when I grow up, too! Owen's quote is great. Olivia's painting is great. What a great art day you had. I'm going to say great one more time so I can get 5 great's in the same comment...

My Friday was good but it sure wasn't like that:) What a fantastic Friday! And I love that the whole family seems to be painting. How great is that? Enjoy the painting too.

I'll bet Olivia is inspired to think about what she'll paint next!

And I'll bet she will!

I'm amazed by the whole Jacobsen family. Oh, how lucky they all are! Sharing his love of art with his kids may be the finest work Eric ever does.

Yes, you're good to encourage them with your purchase, but as far as I'm concerned, you got the best of the bunch. Olivia is a phenom.

A day filled with art is a great day indeed..... Sounds like we just missed you last night at The Jacobsen Family Show, which was amazing. The kids turned out some wonderful, art. You certainly picked out a great, expressive painting. Eric's work is off the chart, definitely a MUST-SEE show.

So much fun to have a family art show! Eric knows how to make us happy. Glad you had a good day. I was feeling a little "off" and stayed home. Now, I really want to see it.

Hi Celeste,
Olivia looks so proud and happy!!!! That's great Celeste congratulation to You, it may just turn out the best investment of your life. The Jacobson's are great thanks for sharing.

I've often seen families who share music, but this is the first one I've seen who share painting. They are inspiring!

I wish I was in the Jacobsen Family!

I will be copying the JF idea, because my family are talented 2D people, if I say so myself.

You are one rich lady with that beautiful Olivia painting - it has more energy than 5 paintings put together and is pure wonderful.
