My new website is, come visit and say Hi
In honor of Big Hats I’ve been doing a sketch-a-day and sharing daily on Instagram.
You probably already know how much I love horses.
However I am NOT a fan of The Kentucky Derby.
I am a firm believer that neither a horse nor any other creature of God should be used for monetary gain through gambling.
I wish large statement hats were worn regularly and not only as a symbol of good luck to the races.
Hats would be great for bad hair days…
A hat can turn any outfit from average to elegant,
And think of the benefit of protecting our skin from UV Rays.
What are your thoughts on hats?
I would love it if you follow me on Instagram to take a peek at more of my sketches and some of my Abstract and Figurative Art.
Thank You for visiting.
I’ve been MIA lately thanks to both technology and my ADD. So you may or may not know this but I recently got my own shopping cart because I wanted to get away from Etsy. As it turned out the Blog that is bundled with my new shop is cumbersome and any stats I may want I’ll have to pay for grrr!!!
So in the meantime some motivation for your week…
Thanks for visiting
I’m a day late again this week.
I had my photo-shoot this past weekend – happy dance here. I’ve started saving pics into their appropriate files on my laptop and I’m really looking forward to sharing them with you.
I came across the work of Isobelle Ouzman who also happens to be from my hometown of Seattle.
With a focus on Plants and Animals she creates her pieces of Art from old books that have been tossed into dumpsters or recycle bins.
with an X-Acto knife it appears she almost carves into the book to get that 3D illusion that I think is just Genius.
Not only has she developed this detailed and unique Art but she’s also very talented with her sketches.
Look at the face on this owl and the lush foliage she sketched.
The same with this deer…

What have you been up to lately.
Thanks for visiting.
BTW – I haven’t been on Instagram or Twitter much less Facebook lately we’re having some sort of “Black Hole” thing with our cell phones at work there is just no signal, just so you know…
This week has been so busy for me that I lost track of what day of the week we were in.
I don’t have anything to share today because I’ve been so focused on last minute touches for the photo shoot this Saturday – Yay!!!
In the meantime please take a peek at these beautiful brushes that have been recycled into pieces of Art…
Artisit Rebecca Szeto takes old brushes that have been thrown in the trash…
She whittles down the handle to get the shape she wants.
And re-purposes them into pieces of Artwork.
A project she started back in 1999.
You can check out her website here.
Do you think they’re fabulous like I do?
I’m so excited to share some of my new Artwork…
You never know what you’ll get with this process because with this process you don’t apply the paint onto the canvas using a brush instead you pour paint onto the canvas.
The color scheme here is yellow and pink the dark areas are a dark blue.
They remind me of colorful agates.
Because I pour the paint onto the canvas there is no way of duplicating the pattern it creates on the canvas.
And my favorite…
I added pink glitter to this painting which really added some “pop”.
What I love the most about this process is that each one of these paintings is an original. There is no way of duplicating a design, even with the same color scheme each painting will have it’s own pattern.
Originals and Prints will be up for sale on my website after their photo-shoot later this month at Marti Magna.com
Do you have a creative process you’ve tweaked or made your own in some way? If so what was it?
We’re slowly but surely approaching Friday !!!

And here we are… so here’s some motivation to get your week started.
Whenever I scratch something off my to do list this is how I feel.
Thanks for visiting.
Wishing you a successful week.
