Newest creation

What a fun art class last night! Met some wonderfully talented women and there was wine involved...need I say more!

Finished this one in the Studio today!
It's fun to see where it started and then how it was finished. Think I'll call this one Bird Man.

Is your Life a Bee or a Butterfly? You choose.

"Your imagination is like a canvas. You can paint on it any kind of picture you choose through your thoughts, attitudes and what you decide to focus on. Don't let doubt or fear paint on your canvas. Don't let "Impossible" or "can't be done" thoughts blur the colors on your canvas.

Instead, take out the paintbrush of faith, the paintbrush of hope, the paintbrush of expectancy and begin painting a bright future on the canvas of your heart. Understand: the kind of mental picture you paint is the goal toward which you will move. That image will set the limits for your life, you need to change the picture you are painting in your mind." Joel Osteen

Studios magazine

Just found out my backyard studio will be featured in the Studios magazine Spring issue! (Which by the way is one of my favorite publications.) This is so exciting because one year ago you couldn't even walk through the Studio because of all the junk and clutter. Then my friend Lottie Banner gave me the best birthday gift of all... the gift of organization! Read all about my organizing tips in Studios!

Look for it on Feb 23!

Green Art

At heart I am a green artist. I recycle, reuse and repurpose found objects. Here is a sample of an assemblage my "finds". This is titled Rhythm no. 24

Oh My a Blog...Now What??

I am new at blogging however I am very old when it comes to art. I was born with a crayon in my hand and finally after age 50 gave myself permission to create. Welcome to my blog. Stay tuned and check back often.
