This piece is available!!




This piece is available!!

DOING COMMISSIONS ARE TRICKY AND SOMETIMES COMPLICATED ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU DEAL WITH A BUYER WHO IS PICKY FULL OF COMPLICATED DETAILS.

And in all honesty it can be a bit frustrating and the flow isn't quite right - kinda like being in a bad relationship with these high expectations - the trying hard - the requiring sooooo much work that in all truth it ends up not being quite enough for other person - meaning that it was never meant to be in the first place.

I must say I had a lot of fun fun creating this piece while I was singing to Ani Difranco 's music - such an inspiration - eloquently bold straight out raw babe!! I love Ani

I feel better!! I do apologies for my little out burst on the issue!! The fish king sends me a message - Giving you another sweet colorful dream. So dream another dream for me sweet heart and let the fun begin!!!

A splash of colors


feeling the Groove!

I just had to take a picture of this. He's so adorable!! He's on the couch napping away while brook goes for a long long walk. You see Brook likes to take over the couch and Sammy gets real upset then he naps on my chair then I move him to another chair and George picks him up and lay's him on the floor then Brook wakes up and starts chasing him around no no Sammy doesn't like this. So he goes upstairs to the bedroom and sleeps. Now he's napping peacefully while Brook is on play time outside.

Older paintings I wanted to share




These are my older paintings from 2008 and I love them! I change so much since then. While I was playing around with collage this morning on wood block it reminded me of the medium I used for these old paintings which was a lot of fun and I decided to pick it up again. I used hand made decorative thin indian rice paper for this- using mod podge. Then I figure out - that instead of using mod podge, a friend of mine who is an amazing artist suggested I use elmer's glue - saves me a lot of money. And it worked just perfectly - just diluted with a bit of water and bam! You have all the glue you want. And when it dries it gives you that brilliant finish. So here are the paintings I did and I want to share it with you in case you have not sen them before.

Life as we see it

Through all the chaos, the tragedies, the tears, the loss of love ones and all the confusion we all must see life in a different light through everything we must continue to move forward and embrace everything! Life is as we see it - changing your perspective and see how the dark transforms into light.
