Private Blog Auction

Thought I'd give this a go, need to make room in the studio so this is my first private auction for this piece.

More about the piece: ARGGGH! This is a painting that just evolved! It was going to be something completely different but then this beautiful pirate came out from the canvas. She must have a message for someone. Dead men tell no tales but maybe women do! ;) She lost her eye in a vicious battle but was victorious and still drop dead gorgeous! Let her beauty grace your space or place and be the topic of lots of conversations! This beauty is a combo of mediums, it has vintage ephemera underneath all the layers and you can still see the postcard and stamp if you look closely in her neck, it was from 1910. There is also light molding paste in the background. This painting has lots of cool texture as well. The sides are painted black so it's good to go right on your wall.

Painting has been sprayed with an archival spray to keep colors looking their best for years to come. This painting is 20" x 16" and will come with a (COA) certificate of authenticity signed by me.

From now until Monday, Sept. 1st (LABOR DAY), I will take your bids for this original, The Beautiful Pirate. Bidding starts at $50.

Please send your highest bid offer to me at

On Tuesday, Sept. 2nd, I will announce the winner.

Dreamlike State

Life throws you curve balls and sometimes it affects you and sometimes it doesn't. Well lately around our house things have been kind of moody and down. Mostly the hubby, he's dealing with some stuff and trying to figure out what our next move is, professionally and location wise, it hasn't been an easy few weeks. My moods have been up and down and I've been affected by how he's feeling as well. We need some good vibes and prayers to get out of this funk! Anyways this newest piece of art is what came out of my gloomy state. I actually really like it though. Funny how your art changes with your moods. I hope you like it. It's a 5 x 7 and I think it would look great matted and framed. It also reminds me of Fall which is my all time FAVORITE season!!!

Hope things are well and easy going in your world!

Till later!

Busy Busy Summer

Hi all,

It's been awhile ...

we've been busy ...

just enjoyed a family trip to Cape Cod this past weekend ...

visited dear friends who we hadn't seen in 2 years ...

they finally met Lorelei and we finally met Adrian ...

the weather was perfect and gorgeous the whole time ...

didn't want to come home to our rainy summer we've been having here ...

life is good.


I have had absolutely no time for art lately and I hate it! I need to get on the ball and get some new stuff done, finish commissions and the painting I started for my class. There is just not enough time in the day to do everything I need to do. These next few weeks will be busy as well. My brother's fiance is flying in from Holland on Friday and will be here for a week visiting and meeting the family for the first time. Should be exciting, then wrapping up the summer with other festivities.

I PROMISE I'LL BE BACK SOON! Hopefully I'll be able to show you new art too. I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far!

Here's to warm nights, cold watermelon and fun swimming!!
