A Silly Sunday.

Helloooooo out there!  I noticed recently that I have a lot of new readers.  I just wanted to say hi and welcome to you guys.  Thanks for visiting.  Maybe you already know this, but in case you don't- 'round here, anything goes.  Questions, comments and rude remarks are always welcome.  Don't hold back.

This morning I woke up in the goofiest mood. 
I feel sort of like this.

Did you know that Marilyn had to jump over 200 times to get this cover shot?  Just a little something I read in one of my favorite books, which contains the famous jumping photo by Philippe Halsman.  We picked this baby up at a thrift store for the always popular price of $4.

Sometimes I paint from a reference instead of real life.  If I had to choose one reference to use for the rest of my life, it would be this book.  Over 600 pages of classic photographic goodness.  I don't think it would ever get old.  Check it out if you ever get the chance.

Posts have been few and far between lately but watch out because that's all about to change.  I've been working on a ton of projects to share with you guys.  With the beginning of Spring came a resurgence in creativity.

I hope you enjoyed an artful and productive weekend.  See you again soon!

Well, of course I have the never ending quotes... but all of a sudden i'm on a needle-book kick. i've cut up a bunch of fabric and stuff so I'm about to stock my shop with 'em.

I also have a fun project I'm about to post about with felt flowers. I highly encourage joining in, so keep an eye out :)

anything in particular you are working on?
