Cloud Nine...

I'm floating on cloud nine today and there is so much hopefull optimistic energy flowing throughout my veins that I almost feel drunk...its a very good feeling!
WELCOME 2010...

My new baby line.

Here is what I have been working on for the last two weeks.  I really like these.  My idea for this baby line is that I wanted to incorporate the attraction of black and white ( which has been studied and documented ) and a simpleness that is felt by the heart.  I thought the old fashioned look to these pieces would look whimsical and fun in any type of baby decor, girl or boy.  I think it could add an eclectic look and charm to any babies room.  I hope you like.  I've only done five so far, but I plan to make many more!

Each piece has the words I love you in tiny letters somewhere on the painting!

A new "Baby Line"

I've been working on an idea for a "baby line" of paintings.  I've done five so far, but think six would be better.  I will take some pics for you all to take a peek at.

We had a big snow storm last night, so glad we weren't out in it as people were stuck everywhere!  Yikes!

Christmas gift video...

Today is Sunday.  I will probably lay low and work on some art today.  Maybe a couple of loads of laundry could get done too.  This cold just will not loosen its grip on me.  Today is day 10.  Possibly the longest cold in history?...I think tomorrow I will go to the gym and try to work out, even it its only for 15 minutes.  I need to get back into my routine.  My mental health depends on it for sure.

My friend Jaquie sent me a video yesterday of her Mom and Dad (my friends also) opening their Christmas gift.  The gift was a painting that Jaquie and her two sisters commissioned me to paint for them.  It is of the three sisters and is surrounded by collage pieces and words.  It was really fun to make, and it turned out really great I think.  Anyway, the video is precious and there are tears and smiles and tenderness.  It melts my heart and brings me tears also.  It is a very special feeling to be able to touch someone with my art like that.  It makes it all worthwhile, and makes me want to continue and to grow and to make everything with a pure heart.  I will try to link that video here on my blog.  It makes me happy  :)
