New Frida Cat Painting

Painting SOLD

Good Morning!

I just listed a new Frida Cat Painting on Etsy. This one has a painted border...so it looks like it's already been framed. I am in love with the gold paint that I discovered!!! It really adds life, I think, to the piece.

Yes, I finished this one at the espresso shop. That's why you see jars of Chocolate powder and yummy Chai in the background. Hmmmmmmmmmmm makes me hungry, think I'll go make something. That's one good thing about owning an espresso shop....so many good things to sip on. Ok, my favoites. Two shots of espresso in a cup, fill the cup with whipped cream and add a bit of steamed non-fat milk. So good... Love iced Americanos with cream too.

Have a great day!

Where I paint

I always find it interesting to see where artists spend their time painting, so I thought I would share my painting spots. Since we own an espresso shop, and I spend a lot of time there....this is where you will find me painting on most days.

The Coffee Shop Stray Finds A Home

Just popping in to post a picture of our new guy. He doesn't have a name yet...still working on that. He did an amazing job traveling to the vet today, and won the heart of everyone that met him. He's such a sweet guy. Hopefully the other six animals at our house will think so too. The vet recommended he stay at the coffee shop tonight, until the flea medication can take affect. Poor stray cats...they have to endure so much. He has a home now though. Just no name.....!!!

Frida Doll

I'm learning a lot with this first cloth and clay doll. I've started painting her face, but still have a little to finish. She's a folk art doll, so I've tried to control my obsessive ways and leave her a little rough. I need to find time to get to the fabric store...I'm really excited to start her dress!

More Frida Paintings!!!


I'm still having a wonderful time creating Frida inspired art! I have one new "Frida Catnap" painting on etsy, I'm listing a "Frida Blue Cat" on eBay in the morning, and I've been working on a Frida doll. This will be my first doll since completing Jane's Cloth and Clay doll making class. Which I highly recommend taking. See the link below, if you want to check it out.

I'll try to get a picture of my doll in progress tomorrow morning.

Take care!!!
