In honor of my mother in law.

My mother-in-law, who is 93 and in a nursing home gave me an old scroll with several scriptures on it that she had hanging in her kitchen for many, many years.  She lived in this same home for over 60 years and I wanted to do something special with the scroll. So, I  decided I would separate each text out and incorporate them into some new and smaller Crosses of Hope. I'm going to make a series of these paintings in honor of her.

Marketing office organization

It's a rainy day today! Time to clean out that marketing office!

Here's a little look into my art office. This is a different room far from my art studio where I can work online, dream, and promote my art. If you haven't considered this for yourself as an artist, well, you can start today. :)
I get the best ideas for art making and marketing when I clean. I haven't quite understood the connection of cleaning and inspiration, but at this point, I don't really care! I listen to some great music, listen to some interesting websites, (see my other blog today for that really cool link!), get rid of stuff that has cluttered my office-and my mind-and just take the day to prepare for something new! Have a great day today!

Morning Visions.

I love chipmunks. And squirrels. All kinds of animals. This little guy has taken over the birdfeeder just outside my studio window. I see him eating his breakfast every morning while I am painting. I am having to replenish the bird feeder every 2-3 days! He's such a spastic, hungry little thing.

What should I name him?
