The Good Side

First came the storm and then the snow and then the sunlight.

The reflections in the duck pond were spectacular.

I'm now in love with photographing water.

This little guy walked right on up to me and posed for a photo.
He didn't even have to think about which side was
his "good" side.

Fluttering By

Spotted this sunflower, claw-footed tub on the way to my
studio this morning.  It's over-flowing with Autumn leaves,
and flowers.  So happy I had my camera with me.

On the studio front, I've added a few more
beautiful, big, butterfly magnets to my line.

I think these would make wonderful, little gifts.
They're available in a variety of different decorative images
words to inspire.

In addition, just want to share my two brand
new painting/collages that I finished

happy weekend to you

Magnetic Attraction

I have magnets.
Yup, lots and lots of magnets!!!
Above and below are a sampling of my new
line of funky and inspirational art for your
fridge, filing cabinets, magnetic boards,
or even as a small piece of art to prop-up
on a shelf or little easel.

I'm loving the butterflies with their wing-span
of six inches--available in many inspirational collages.

 My prints mounted on 4"x5" canvas boards
come in almost all of my designs!
All of my magnets are signed on the back
and sealed with a nice thick, glossy

Come on over and check them out.
Ooooh, they would make easy gifts, too.
Just slip into an envelope along with a
greeting card.  Perfect.

Introducing My New Pendants

So here are some of my most recent collages that I turned into
fantastic, glass pendants.  Each pendant comes with a
silver ball chain and packaged in a little organza bag.
Great for the holidays, don't you think?
I have many more of these in my shop.
Come on over and take a look.

Drawn to Butterflies

you, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe
deserve your love and affection

I just love this quote and created the artwork which features it.
I've been so drawn to butterflies and feathers and
trees lately.   Funny how some things just strike us
at certain times in our lives and hit that chord
which resonates inside of us.  For whatever the reason
and whatever the timing, I'm happily loving the creative
energy that I have going on right now.
I'm offering this artwork in my shop Etsy shop now in both
print form and woodblock form.

Loving Layers

Listen to the Music 

Little Bird

Owl Love

Listen to the Whispers

Wow.  I've been doing lots and lots of
collaging lately and loving it.
Really.  I can barely stop.  No time for
laundry, cooking, all cleaning in general 
(just ask my husband)
has come to an abrupt pause.
I'm having an amazing time 
layering paints, and papers,
colored pencils, pens, fabric, and even little 
All of my new work is available now 
through my
Etsy shop which by the way has a 
new look
to it with a brand new header and icon.
Stop by and check it out when you
have the chance.

Mum's The Word

Just noticing how my most recent collage
reflects the color palette of the season.
I took the photo of the mums
yesterday and completed my
"Deer in the Woods"
yesterday as well.
I'm having so much fun
experimenting with different
color combinations!

happy weekend

Elephants, Butterflies, Birds, and a Mermaid!

I've been working on a new collection which I
mentioned here on my blog yesterday.
Whimsical and funky collages with a new
twist that have been mounted
on woodblocks.  The woodblocks have 
deep sides which I've painted a neutral,
metallic gold.  You can easily prop these pieces
up on a shelf or mantel place or of course,
hang on the wall.
Below is a peek at the collection.
If you would like to see them in more
detail, hop on over here.
