24 x 40
Mixed media
acrylic, ink, pastel, collage

Hurray, this one is finally finished and all framed up, as of today!

A very interesting thought....

In the New Somerset Apprentice magazine, Pam Carriker has these words that she shares.  I just thought it was so cool to think that we, as artists, are leaving a legacy.  How fun to think that possibly future generations will find our artwork; examine and study it; talk about it and treasure it as a piece of the past.  I love that thought-it feels so magical.

"Sharing techniques is not just something 'nice' to do, it's really our job
 as artists. Art is a movement, it doesn't just sit still but moves in new directions,
 constantly redefining itself , constantly moving. I heard
 somewhere that there are no new techniques, just the same things being used
 in new ways. That's an interesting way to look at things. It helps us to see
 that 'we' are just vessels that the techniques flow through and what comes
 out from our hand has its own unique look to it because we each bring our
 own muse to the table."  PAM CARRIKER

Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine Sept/Oct 2010

Today has been a really rewarding art filled day!  I just opened my mail and found this magazine sent to me from Interweave.  I had sent this piece in months ago for their calender contest.  It made it to the finalists but didn't make it into the calender, so I just thought that was the end of it-but surprise!  It got its little spot in this magazine!   I'm so excited!  So much fun to see!  My little "LOVE FOREVER" is on page 70.....


Someone sent me a message on my Etsy site this morning.  It was so kind that I wanted to share it here on my blog.  I am constantly amazed and touched by the wonderful people I am meeting through this creative world.  I'm feeling blessed right now-Thank you new friend.

I just wanted to let you know that I have continued to watch your shoppe since you started. I actually did contact you in the beginning. I am pleased to say it looks like my predictions were right on and you are doing very well. I am so pleased for you. I have really enjoyed watching your style and palette evolve through the short time your Etsy shoppe has been open. So....Congratulations and keep up the beautiful work! I hope you are enjoying your new phase of life. I am sure enjoying watching your skills continue to get just more delicious all the time. Will continue to watch you grow, and hope you continue your artistic ride with joy.

Best of luck,
