Rabbits and Wasps and Johnny Appleseed Skies ~

Well, Hello There ~ 

Oh my goodness.  I can't believe how crazy busy it's been in my neck of the woods lately.  Have you been busy?  Maybe it's something in the air....this constant fluttering about and busy-ness!  I crave the luxury of long days at home...working in the studio ~ 

In the last few days, I've been to 3 author panels and a writing workshop.  The workshop was fabulous and I learned oodles about the writing and publishing world!  Later today, I am off to another author panel in San Diego.  Like I said....busy!

In between the panels, I did manage to get my hair done.  Decided it was time to go purple. Plus, I needed some new photos for some arty events as well ~

A few evenings ago, we were blessed with Johnny Appleseed skies.  Those vibrant colors invite me to stop and just breathe.  Delicious!

Here's a funny little thing...we found some unexpected visitors right on our very front porch ~

These guys actually attached their nest right onto my hanging ivy plant...which is only about 4 feet from the front door.  I don't know how in the world we didn't notice this earlier in the season. Go figure!!

Ohhh...and, I did finish another rabbity piece.  This piece has super special meaning to me.  You see, over the course of the last few years, I have lost a lot of family.  Actually, I have very few aunts and uncles left on this Earth.  A few weeks ago, one of my mom's older sisters passed away, leaving only one sibling left out of 6 siblings.  She was my aunt Ola Jean.  

So....I created this piece in honor of, not only Ola Jean, but of all the recent losses within my extended family.

"A Serenade For Ola Jean"

If you're interested in this original, you can find it right here in my Zibbet Shop.  I think this piece can speak to people in many different ways.  For me, it's about loss, but also speaks about the freedom of going onward and escaping pain.  Plus....I just love rabbits!!  Sometimes, it's that simple.  Art can speak in serious tones, but it can also be fun.!

Well, I guess I am out of here.  Off to San Diego.

Until Next Time:

Have a safe trip to San Diego!

Your purple hair is AMAZING! I love it!

I am sorry to hear that you have lost family to the spirit world. I admire your ability to transform those feelings into art like this. Very beautiful!

Thank you Bobbypin. I think my art allows me to make sense of it least a little.

Thanks for liking my purple hair! It's so fun. Who wants to live in a world without purple hair anyway?
