Hanging by a thread

Do you ever feel like you are hanging by a thread? I do. I feel I am constantly multi-tasking. I wonder how I'll ever get everything done. Deadlines, time frames, no time for just me,,,,,,but hey, that's my life. And,,,, I wouldn't have it any other way!

Birthday Present

I made this painting for my friend Richard for his birthday. I have known him since the early 80's and he lives in California near Morro Bay. It is on an 8 x 10 inch gallery wrapped canvas.

I liked the painting so much that I had postcards made from the original. They turned out really nice and come with envelopes.

Emma has a secret

"Emma has a secret"
I created this mixed media piece on 12 x 24 inch gallery wrapped canvas. This is a large piece for me. I am getting more used to making larger pieces. I think one of the hardest things is to figure out how to ship larger pieces. Well, if I sell it that is. I really like this one so it will be hard to part with. But that's ok, I can make another one, right? The muslin background gives it depth and texture.

This is Sara. She pulls boys' hair on the playground! And,,, she especially likes boys with black hair!

Do you ever make a piece you don't want to part with. Well, I'm having a hard time parting with Sara. She is in my etsy shop (click on the left sidebar). There is something just so simple about her that I love. But I know she will end up in a good home. Perhaps there will be boys with black hair there! Ha!
