"A Constant Presence"...

Hello Again!

Just wanted to pop in and show you my newest little watercolor.  This piece is entitled:  "A Constant Presence".  The image size is 5" x 7" with a border large enough to allow for framing.   It's listed in my new shop category called ~  "Affordable, Original Watercolors".

I am having so much fun creating characters with watercolor again.  You see, once upon a time, my dream was to write and illustrate children's books.  I would spend hours creating characters and illustrating these "books".  This is really taking me back to where it all began and I am loving it!

If you're interested in this can view it in my shop right  HERE.

Keep in mind...these watercolors are not masterpieces.  They are not perfect.  However, they are fun and affordable.  This is a great way to own affordable, original, one of a kind art.  I am offering these at the same price as my art prints!!  AND...I'm hoping to offer 5 a week.  This will challenge me to create almost daily!

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look!

Oh the Craziness...

Hello There:

 It's you forgot about me, didn't you?

It's been crazy busy these last few weeks...months really.  I want to share a few things with you, but I don't want this blog post to be 100 pages long, so I'm going to try and sum up my busy-ness with few words and some photos.

Over the course of the last few weeks, I've been preparing for another art show.  This show, entitled: "Down the Rabbit Hole" is a group show inspired by the art of "Alice in Wonderland" ~

I'm super duper happy with my new piece for the show...

"Mi Corazon por Alicia" ~

...and, here's the piece all framed up and ready for delivery ~

Because this is an "Alice" themed show, this piece is going in as well.

I'm so happy to be included in this show and I'm looking forward to the opening reception this Saturday.  Should be a lot of fun!

In March, I was honored to be invited to a private preview of the new show, "I Want to Be First", at Kat Von D's Wonderland Gallery ~  (Sorry about this blurry photo.  My husband secretly snapped it behind my back while I was talking to Ms. Von D).

It was also the delivery day for Ms. Von D's custom piece  ~ 

"Piaf Sings the Blues"  ~ 

Kat's cat, Piaf, is so photogenic.  Really fun to work with his image ~  

So, in between the comings and goings of my Everydays, I've also decided to add a new category in my Online Shop... "Affordable, Original Watercolors".  I just think it's so important to offer small, affordable pieces of original art in this terrible economy.  How nice to find something colorful and fun in your mailbox....along with all the bills.  When people are struggling to pay their mortgage and put food on the table, it's very easy for luxuries like expensive pieces of art to be put on the back burner. hope is that I can help to bring art into your home at an affordable price.  

The images are 5" x 7" with a border large enough to allow for framing.  They are $14.00 each....which is the same price as an art print!  So, for $14.00, you can get an original, one of a kind, numbered watercolor.  I'm hoping to offer 5 a week.  This is also a way to help me create almost everyday! 

Here is the first piece created for the series (sold) ~

"Little Tangles"'s the second piece in this affordable series  (currently available) ~

In between the art and my gardening and my other daily "stuff", I took time out for a new profile picture, which I need for a new art adventure.

And...just for fun, here's a picture of some of our Easter eggs ~ 

I guess this brings me to a somewhat current point in my crazy life!

Also, let me say that I am not sure what the heck is going on with the font in this post.  Blogger must be doing some, just overlook the weirdness of today's changing font!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Hope to see you super soon!

Until Next Time:
