This and a barn-that's what I have been painting today. Two totally opposite ways of dealing with my art and it kept my brain really sharp. I think moving from one to another keeps my eye from tricking itself-each time I see in a different way. It was really fun and really made my whole day fly by-and yes the laundry isn't folded and the kitchen table is full of paint again and I am HAPPY

What inspires me? Cheap little frames found at the antique store. I just hated the magazine pic of flowers that someone had stuffed in the frame-I needed to honor that little metal gem. It was way too fun to paint this and I think it really works in the frame. I just can't seem to do one thing-at the same time I was making fun little Halloween pins, full of glitter and beads and all sweet and colorful.... wonder how many personalities I may have.....

I could be bolder with shadow that is what I have learned from this-I may go back in and work on that but I do like the feeling it gives me and thats what I wanted to get over. The picture isn't very good-I am using my husbands camera as I put mine in a safe place two weeks ago.....and may find it if we move someday. I wonder what else I have put in a safe place? I may have a whole separate life in a safe place that I know nothing about....

An Old favorite-I love the peace of this. I sometimes wish that the world would just stop and we could all just be still for a while. Everything seems to be going so fast and we are all running around like crazy people trying to get somewhere. And there is no somewhere-we are trying to be thinner, richer, more successful and we are completely living through our texting and-oh, heres a funny! our blogspots etc. I think today I will just enjoy this moment and the next...

YIPEE!!! My Fav Season is coming upon us. It has been a long not great summer and I think the back to school week will be good for all of us!!! I am selling on etsy now-ebay is really quite expensive compared to them and etsy is a store not an auction-really simple to post and sell. We'll see-I do miss the excitement of auctions, and if the Halloween stuff doesn't fly off the shelves I may go back and forth and use both!!!!
