The Entertainer...(Sold)

"The Entertainer" is my latest creation to make it out of my sketchbook and into a painting on a 16 x 20 canvas panel....The idea was to do a black and white effect, with slight coloration in her hair and eyes. A lowbrow Gothic cutie and her Skully,ready to entertain you! I'm not sure where she will show up for sale, either Ebay or Etsy, but she will be available tonight at one of the two :)

Painting, printing, listing, blogging....

Wow, I can't believe how the days have flown by since my last post! I've been very busy away from the computer. We had a small tornado come through last Tuesday morning, and we were without power for two days, then discovered a water line was broken underground when one of our huge Walnut trees uprooted and fell on it! My daughter had a couple of friends staying the night when the tornado hit, and we had to wake everyone up and pile in the car and fly over to my father-in-law's house to get to the basement. It was an interesting journey to say the least!
Luckily we had no damage to our house, just big trees down all around us,and the usual grass, leaves, and dirt stuck all over the siding.
So, I'm looking forward to getting back to painting, printing, listing,and blogging! I've added some new prints to my Etsy shop with FREE Shipping in the U.S., and a few original paintings are on Ebay, and end tonight! Just click the links at the upper right of my blog to get there...well, I quess I should get busy, just wanted to check in with you all......take care!

The Steampunk Girls....( SOLD )

I posted a few days ago about going back to the art I love creating....I've always had a passion for the unique, eerie, and unusual....dark even, keeping with my true love of creating,here are my two newest creations! I know the pic might not be the best quality, but you can get the general idea. These were so much fun to create, the dresses are actually ink blots! (Well, paint blots), they are holding vintage styled keys,surrounded by various gears and whatnot. I am loving going back to my passion of "The Quirky"....I will be listing both of these on Ebay tonight!

Happy June!

I thought it would never come! I'm so glad to be out of the cold... I love Spring, Summer and Fall- I have to have color around me. I always get a little depressed in I just wanted to post and run today and say "Happy June" to everyone! (Today is our 18th wedding anniversary, I can't believe it, where does the time go?)
Anyway, I am busy creating new art pieces that will be up on Ebay soon, and new art prints I will be adding to my Etsy shop. I will try to post some pics soon!

Tuesday, May 26, 2009


Well, I'm finally back! After a time away due to computer problems,etc., I am refreshed and ready to jump into creating once again! While I was missing in action, I've had a chance to think about what direction I want my artwork to go,and to grow my little "creative" business. So, you will notice some changes to my blog, Ebay auctions and Etsy shop,not to forget my artwork....although it may be more of going back to what I love doing, rather than changing to something else...I'll be seeing you soon! (And just a quick note: Everyone who purchased something just before and during my computer fritz, your items have all been shipped! So sorry for the delay!)

Midnight Valley...

Here is my new landscape Abstract painting available on Ebay now....

The Sky is Beautiful.....

After the thunderstorm this afternoon, my little boy looked out the window and said "Look outside Mom, the sky is Beautiful!!", and this is what we saw...if you look real close, you can see one of our miniature horses on the bottom left. My son went outside to try to find the end of the rainbow, of course no luck :)

Sidewalk Chalk....

My kids were having fun with sidewalk chalk yesterday, before the rain....funny that my "Rocker" 16 yr. old was covered in chalk, and my "All business" 6 yr. old hardly had any on him! They crack me up! Here is a small sample of their work....the entire sidewalk was covered in murals all the way out to the drive, but I thought the colored stone path was pretty!

The Artists....

15th. Century Inspiration....

I have always loved 15th. century paintings, so I wanted to incorporate some of the aspects that interest me into some of my own creations. This piece has the texture of frescoes, deep "glowing" color, antique style face,and the wings are going straight up! It's hard to tell in the photo, but I have lightly dry-brushed metallic gold over the texture, and when the light hits just right, it shimmers! She is wearing a crown of greens, and is titled "Angel Of The Forest", available on Ebay now.....

Can I do it?

Okay, I love this family room! It looks so cozy and casual,rustic but light and airy...I really would like to try to do our living room like this,and I think I could come close....maybe....kind of...., anyway, IF I get ambitious enough this summer,I will keep you posted with before and afters, and updates along the way....Now I just need to convince my husband we can do it!

New Paintings!

I thought I would show you a couple of paintings I've been working on...exploring some new textures, techniques and color. Both are available right now on Ebay, just click the Ebay link at the right of my Blog....

"GiRL On StAgE"...SOLD!

I will be listing this altered collage painting on Ebay tonight!


For The Love Of Paper....

Okay, I confess... I am a paper addict! I love the patterns, colors, & textures...I can't stop buying/collecting it! I certainly don't "need" any more, so I am really trying to go through my paper collection (and it's large, believe me!) I've re-discovered some wonderful patterns and colors,that somehow made their way to the bottom of the stack, the back of the shelf, and I'm so glad I did...For a while it seemed my artwork was lacking in the color and pattern department,and I'm not sure why because I love mixing all colors and patterns together! I guess it was just the winter blahs....but now I feel refreshed, and have been working away in my studio putting together layouts for new pieces...I will post them as they are finished.

It was such a beautiful day here! So warm for this time of year....but now it is a little stormy, and there were even a couple of tornado warnings north of us...yes, it's almost Spring, indeed....This is a short post, because I really should be creating and working. I've been enjoying everyone's blogs all day,and didn't get much else done :)

Here is a new PRINT of my original Mixed Media, Altered Collage Painting, "WONKY CAKE", on Etsy now...

Ready For Spring!

Every year around the month of Feb., I always feel a little, well, dull.....I get in somewhat of a slump, which of course leads to Artist's Block. I've had this blog since Jan., and have never posted anything until now. (So , Welcome and Thank You for being among the first viewers of my blog!) Winter just seems to zap me (after Christmas and New Year's, anyway). But, this week I've noticed the tiny little buds on the trees, some bulbs are starting to come up, and if I look hard enough, I can see the green grass of Spring under the dead brown growth from last year.....So now I am feeling a little more energized, awaking from the dullness. I have some wonderful new Artist's papers that I've been looking through and planning what their future will hold....a new dress for an Angel or Fairy, or as interesting backdrops for my paintings and collages....Anyway, my upcoming pieces are going to reflect my anticipation for Spring with fresh colors and patterns. Of course, I will still have some truly Primitive pieces in the mix! And, new this year.....Art Prints! I am so excited to be offering Archival Prints of my past works....You can find them on Ebay and Etsy.

This Original Collage Painting is listed on Ebay right now....SOLD!


And this one....SOLD!
