Just wanted to show you my newest piece, just finished today!!! I just love it!!! It makes me happy and we could all use a little happy in the world today! I am calling this LARGE piece "Stand Out In Your Field" - a double entendre. It's 24" x 36" on thick gallery wrapped canvas. The bird was a lot of fun to do because I used Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas and also some of her new paints. VERY FUN!! I highly recommend it. It was great doing the bird that way because it made for easy placement, I didn't mess up the canvas by putting the bird in the wrong spot and I could try it out ahead of time to see where I wanted to put it.
I also used some oil paint markers which was awesome for detail!!! New for me and I won't be painting in black all the time now that I found these markers. So this guy is pretty much finished, just need to beeswax it and paint the sides. Hope you like it!! I really do and I'm so proud of it!!! I will be listing this soon on Etsy. I need to restock my shop with originals and this is the first!! Enjoy!

Just wanted to write a little about the art walk I had been posting about earlier. Well it was this weekend and it was the first really nice weather we've had which I thought would bring the crowds, um no. Not up here! Everyone was busy doing things outside, why not it was the first gorgeous day in a really long time up in the cold north country! Anyways we had spurts of people come in. Nobody really buying anything but I got lots of great feedback. My art will be up for a few more weeks at the Lily Pond so if you're nearby go check it out, it's much better in person! I did sell the sweet little piece above named "Create" to a sweet young lady named Ella. She was 8 and 3/4 years old and came in with her mother Dena who also purchased my new piece Happy Happy for her office. Ella is very creative and just loved this and the colors were her favorite. They were my sales for the day which was great because they were so appreciative of my art and gave me great feedback! It was nice to be so appreciated. I was displaying next to my friends from the Lily Pond who do amazing bead work that I would have no patience for! I was honored they asked me to be a part of it!! All in all it was a good day!!!
Thanks to all who came and especially Devin and Pauline from the Lily Pond.

Wanted to show you my latest piece that was listed today on Etsy!
Welcome home with this piece of original art on birch wood! This is a joyful day complete with a singing girl, her cat, a random pretty balloon, hearts, fluffy clouds cute birdies and flowers. This piece was woodburned a few times after laying on layers of acrylics and different items like glitter, color pencil, crackle paint, paper, ephemera, pencil and a cute button for a door knob. It is 12" x 24" on birch wood and is wired for immediate hanging on your wall. If you need a cheery piece this is it!! I needed some cheer and ended up creating this whimsical piece which made me smile and I hope it makes you smile too!! The back is titled and signed by me. It has been coated with a varnish spray as well to keep it looking fresh for many years!
Here are some more photos for your enjoyment!
Have a joyful day!
