And this is my bird which will be a pillow too!

"Orange Brick Road"

Taking Creative Jumpstart 2014 on line course and it rocks! You can find more about the class here: Http://

In this painting I used my Liquitex Heavy Body acrylics which are my favorite acrylics for fine art paintings or for using in my mixed media ptgs with stamps! The colors are brilliant and always creamy!

All MOVED in!

Thank Goodness!  All unpacked and moved in!  Studio is in working order and I am getting inspired to be there!  It is WAY smaller than my home...however this is temporary (one year...)  while we shop for our next home.

Hopefully, I will be able to post some good creative things soon!

Boxes Boxes Everywhere!  I had no idea how much STUFF we had accumulated in 22 years in the same home!  I have been in my studio sorting and boxes for almost a week now!  The hardest part is that we are only moving to a temporary rental residence for one year. So what to keep out for access in one year and what goes in Long term storage for when we get into our permanent residence.  Phew.....I am tired!  But oh so happy we have sold the big house and moving on to a much more manageable smaller home for our pre retirement!
