Booth2013 Starfish, beachworks and birds boothleft boothrightWow. Funny, but we seem tailor made for each other – and I was OVERWHELMED by the beauty, creativity and sheer fun of the other ladies works.  I am hoping to be lucky enough to exhibit this fall in Pfafftown, for Whimsical Women on November 23rd. More to come.

Body of work- Beachlife and Freshfish

In an effort to grow the body of work that I call Beachlife , this little pair finished yesterday will be added to the pile. I will never tire of giving fish , crabs and other sea creatures their own character marks- they just make me happy. Hope you all have a great PPF and weekend.

You are my inspiration

Every once in a while I will get addicted to another artist’s work. At first I stare, then I try to do it justice by imitation (something some art teacher taught me in school), and then I try to adapt the learning to my own style. If you take classes in a certain style or technique, it eventually makes its appearance in your own work. As one of my current teachers says    ‘ practice, practice, practice’ …(like I didn’t hear that enough growing up with piano lessons once a week for what felt like eternity).

Valentines, in progress

I almost hate to admit this – I BUY valentines. (Um I have also proudly purchased everyone of my children’s birthday cakes – Auntie Sue disapproves…) So I thought for kicks, I would make them this year.

Sneak Peak at the ‘pieces’.
