While Taking a Break

I had in my mind to make some new items for my Etsy shop. I put the materials aside, but they kept "calling" to me. So I decided, while I took a break from sewing and painting, to make some jewelry. I have been having fun, but I think tonight, I will try to get some sleep.
Oh, and my sister was here visiting from SanAntonio with our favorite athlete (Sammy, number 3; scratch that, age 3). We had fun visiting a few antique shops in Bethany, Oklahoma and found lots of great items. I am looking for brouches for the damas (the girls that accompany the QuinceaƱera during the ceremony, kind of like the maids-of-honor during a wedding).
I AM SORRY. I have not kept up with the art event happenings lately, or the artist wanted postings. I will get back on the ball come September. My goal is to showcase a different artist every Friday. If you want to be showcased, I would need an e-mail stating the fact, a couple of photos (I can download from your site, with your permission), and contact information. If you would like me to mention something specifically, please, let me know and I would gladly do it. Thank you to those who have already done that. I will try to get to them starting the first Friday of September --you know, the start of holiday shopping. Free advertising.

Labor of Love

Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase,   Oil on 5 "x7"   Linen Panel SOLD  Private Collection in San Saba, TX First, I must say that everything I paint is because I absolutely love. I don't like to paint things that I don't find to be attractive to me for one reason or another. Sometimes it's sentimental reasons and other times it's as simple as beautiful colors or the texture. Either way, it's something that I want to capture and stare at for long periods of time. I want to study it and how it affects the environment around it, as in the case of Sunflowers in Cobalt Blue Vase does. In that respect, I feel ALL my paintings are a labor of love.  More often than not, I have to create a painting, wipe it all down, and start all over again if something is just not working. Some never get completed and I just end up painting something totally different on that panel. Then there are some, that I just have to paint, no matter how much trouble they are giving

Roses, Chickens, and Bees

Thank you for the happy e-mails, the wonderful advice and sharing of resources, and your kindness and support all around. I've found that simplifying my life can be complicated and messy at first, but I am getting into the swing of things and finding my way around raising chickens, keeping bees, organic gardening and teaching art. During winter break, I started my coop plans--all the things coops had to have and the best way to build it so that that it would not be something my neighbors would mind seeing as they step outside their houses. I must add that I have the BEST neighbors in the world. I bought chickens in March and by April, they were ready to be outside of the broode
