Honey, Spiders and Chicks! Oh my!

I'm back at it this week. Joe is running errands and picking up some of the new Skecher's walking shoes for me. I'm sitting WAY too much! House is quiet. Started painting this JUST BEE thing. Will show you the results soon.
This was pretty spectacular. A big iron sculpture at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham. We went to watch APR www.goapr.com/race/ race last Saturday. Click the pic and you'll see the baby spiders ready to attack the army of Porsches!
Andrew has a VW TDI cup race in Chicago this weekend. I sewed on this big patch which sewed up the zipper on one side. Decided this wouldn't work too well. Wish him luck! Race #5!
I painted this for the APR team last week! It was fun to do and I even added a screw! A bit of Checkered flag stuff on the side you can't see here.
Got the living room painted too. What a chore. Like moving. But it's done and looks GREAT!
Amazingly enough, I got this done while they were here. It's in the Etsy shop. JOe likes this one.
Thanks for all the great advice and sweet comments for me this week. I was tearing my hair out for a while! Have a great weekend y'all! I plan to.
Love,
Ronnie

I always like you posts & your artwork but I see marketing problems ahead for a product named "Big Chick Sunscreen".

I love that a couple of the beach towels look like bacon! If I had a beach house, that painting would be in it!

Your art is great! "Big Chicks Sunscreen" cracked me up:)
I can see how painting that room might have been tricky!

Hey Ronnie - Just drove halfway thru your home state yesterday - Geez, y'all have one big giant speed trap set up here. I was shocked to see that Georgia also has the state shrub of Pennsylvania growing everywhere. (That would be those orange barrels that line the highways.) 6 hrs & 30 minutes - St Augustine to Atlanta. Wanted to check out Macon but I was running outta daylight.
