Painting Finished


I posted three, 'Work In Progress', paintings a while ago. They are paintings inspired by my imaginary flower doodles. I've finally finished one... I call it, "FIRST DATE". She's all dressed up...waiting for her handsome guy to arrive. This painting is going in my Etsy shop tonight.

I haven't had a lot of new paintings to share lately, because I've been busy painting for an Artists' Reception and show... I think there will be 5 or 6 local Artists. It sounds like a lot of fun, and I will be sure to post pictures.

Have a great evening...

Happy Easter!!!

I have one Easter decoration on display this's my favorite. A little bunny made of Spun Cotton that I bought on Etsy. I saw the artist, Crystal, on the Martha Stewart show; fell in love with her creations, and had to have this bunny. Martha has the directions on her site to make one of Crystal's bunnies; which I plan to do in the future! Here are both links. Enjoy!

I wish everyone a wonderful Easter full of family and love!

Sudoku = Meditation=Art Journal

I've enjoyed Sudoku for a while now. I call it my meditation. So when I feel stressed...I grab my little book, the time flies by, I feel relaxed and I usually don't remember what I was stressed about after several puzzles. Very similar to creating Art, so I guess that is how my Sudoku books gradually became my Art journals. I started, rather unconsciously, using the finished pages of my sudoku books to experiment with ideas for art projects. It's fun and seems to help me with that dreaded artists' block.

Here are a few of my Sudoku pages and three Works in Progress that were inspired from these pages.

Rudy And The Scratching Box


I have been very busy, and have a lot to post about, but I've decided to make one post at a time. Rudy and his new scratching box are first! He was so excited about this new box, loaded with catnip! He scratched it, licked it and laid by it; until, I'm guessing, the catnip was gone. He's a very funny guy!

We have a glass table in our kitchen, and I couldn't resist taking pictures of Rudy laying in the sun, under the table. I then played with one of the pictures on my computer, and I really like the way it turned out. I'm going to play around with it at cafepress next...and see what happens.

Well, it's early, on a Saturday night, but I'm thinking bed and my Sudoku puzzles sound pretty good. Tomorrow I think I'll post about my obsession with Sudoku, and how it's turned into one of my all time favorite Art projects and inspirations.

Have a wonderful evening!!!
