Cherish the LOVE...

All new "wood" style art is being listed in my ETSY shop this week. These are adorable 8x8 wood  squares. They look great on the bedside table or in a group on the wall. I have added a variety of styles including more angels and faith based creations.

I went back to my old style with these pieces. Each has been collaged with print paper, The "dolls" , as I like to call them, are painted on canvas and cut out. I then add them to my collage painting and paint again. Time consuming, but I love the result. This group has washi taped sides! I think this really gives them a signature look-

 I am in the process of preparing for my fall art shows, but I will add more to my shop. Keep checking back. Thank you for all your support, I cherish every sale, and feel so grateful to live everyday creating my dream.

"Cherish Love"

Birds of a feather....

I wanted to share with you all, a little bit of my art inspiration. I love birds, and of course my favorite, is the majestic peacock. I did a painting a while back of a girl with a peacock dress and after seeing so many "peacock" inspired things this month, I decided to add another peacock dress to my collection. Today, I wanted to let you in on what inspires me daily. I never really know what I'm going to paint, but sometimes I will see something unique and want to use the color or concept myself. Here is one example of how I develop my concept or just get an idea. I came across this photo on my facebook feed..... A fabulous inspiration find- A GORGEOUS re- created dresser. This beauty is from one of my favorite facebook friends Jennifer Wyatt. She loves to share her artistic designs and this one took my breathe away.... 

From there, I gather colors and sketch..... With this design, I wanted to stay with more blues and teal. I put my  focus on her hat and hair, rather than the dress. I'm in Kentucky, its derby time, why not focus on hats?? 

I added the text and twinkle to my finished image. 

"Why be ordinary when you can be EXTRAORDINARY"

Also, all purchases this week will get a FREE gift! Set of three no snag pony tail holders! I made big batch for myself and thought I would share them with you!

I am listing all new art this week and I have launched a new website. I am super busy! You will see my new designs, and find coupon codes there!

Inspired by the violet eyes of Elizabeth Taylor and those fabulous turban hats from the 60's, I created this gal and added a French proverb. We are binge watching Mad Men, so don't be surprised if more hats show up in my work this month!
