So much for blogging more often again!


I really did have good intentions of getting and staying more regular in my blogging routine but I appear to be failing miserably :) Oh well, thought I'd share with you all what I've done in the past couple of weeks. Yesterday I purchased a 12 x 12 book of acrylic paper at Michaels and I played around with it today. I've been trying to decide if I should put some wording on this one or leave it as is. What say you???


This is just a little watercolor collage piece I did yesterday morning. Whimsical and fun!




This is scary, huh? Egads! I just got in the mood to do something oddly strange and colorful I guess :)

I've got a couple other pieces that I just haven't taken pictures of yet, but I will. I got a wonderful request to put some of my pieces in a shop in Watertown, SD called Fiddlestix. I've been trying to think of things to do that won't be so expensive and then have some other original pieces as well. I'm thinking of adhereing prints to wooden blocks. Or greeting cards? I don't know. Any suggestions?? What sells well for you at shows?

I think it's time to close my eyes a little and see if I can feel a little better. I feel a little sinus issue coming on. :( NO FUN!

Have a wonderful week everyone!!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your art--no matter what it is--the color choices are wonderful!
What sells the best for me are the prints on wood or even a thick canvas!

You now, I like all three..but my favorite it the houses..your calligraphy is wonderful! and they all look so welcoming and happy :-)

You know, blogging isn't about schedules or commitment, at least not to me. You needn't feel bad or guilty. Just blog when the spirit moves you and we'll all be here..loving your art and loving your heart :-)

Love each of these pieces! Your work is so colorful! The girl with the birdcage definitely has a look that indicates she has something to day. I say go with some words!!
