Getting busy


I spent a bit of time last week prepping some canvases and some wood so that
I'd be able to just grab one and start painting when the spirit move me.


And I did just that.  Yesterday I made the above,
with Mother's DAy in mind.  


And today, in honor of Earth Day I
painted this quickly little girl who pick the "green carpet"
over the red any day.


Both are in my shop with a few other originals that have been hanging out there for quite awhile.
If you see something you like, but the price tag is too painful, feel free to message
me on Etsy.  I'd be happy to set up a payment plan in order  to
get art to the hands of someone who really loves it.

I'll be working on a request that I've put off for far too long over the next day
or two. But after that I'll grab another canvas off the stack and get busy.
I'll meet you back her. :)

My Home Sweet Home


This patriotic angel is hanging out in my Etsy shop.



I painted her for a group of volunteers
who are going to be recognized at an upcoming military event.
I customized them and printed 53 prints!
They are on their way and I really hope they love them.

Once the original sells, I will make prints available that
you can customize as well. 
Her sash and the banner at the bottom can say whatever you like.

Life is but a dream..


Just dropping in to let you know what's happening around here.
First I wanted to show my new original canvas.
"Life is but a Dream"


Here's a close-up of the little row boat floating
gently down the stream/her scarf.
Fish are a-jumping through the air beneath
the paper sun.


It's like a dream, right?
Anyway, the original is here.
I think it would be very sweet in a boy's or girl's nursery.


Or you can buy the print here.


I've also listed the above print,
Sorry the original sold before I could blog about it.



Midnight Blue - Angel T-Shirt
Midnight Blue - Angel T-Shirt by DudaDaze

I added this little "Midnight Blue" angel
to a t-shirt over at Zazzle.

And that may be about it, art wise.
Other than printing, packing, and mounting lots of prints.


In other news, Josie McQueen has gone ahead and
release their second EP, "Grody Noise".
You can go listen to all six new songs
(plus the old ones)
on soundcloud.com/josiemcqueen
You can buy a single track or the whole EP
at josiemcqueen.bandcamp.com

Either way, they just want ya'll to hear 'em.

That's it for now.

Find the Good


Sure winter is cold and the snow gets old after a while,
but hot chocolate wouldn't taste nearly as good in the summertime.




original matted piece of cereal box art.
It's in my shop now.



Enjoy your weekend!

Spring will Follow


I went ahead and painted my little sketch from the other day.


She lost a bit of her softness,



but gained a bunch of pretty tulips.

Queen of the Cottage


We are still in a deep freeze here in PA.
That means all 3 of our cats are spending a majority of their time
in the house. 
Two of them usually live outside on the back porch/yard.
They have a little house that Mike built for them with a heated bed inside.
But with these temperatures, that's not quite good enough.

Anyway, what I'm getting at is that Cookie is
being challenged daily and is barely hanging on.
Even with her extra toes she struggles to keep the crown.
I exaggerate. It's mostly fine. :)


Original on wood in my Etsy shop.

Stay warm people!  And pets!!!

Let's catch up


Sorry for my blog absence.
Here's a quick recap of what's been going on since last I posted.

Let's see:
On the last Friday in January, Mike and I got to watch Eli
graduate from DEC.

He earned his Associate Degree in Graphic Design and
started his new job with Joe Sestak the next day.
We are very proud!


Aaron and Jesse were back in the studio last
weekend recording the second Josie McQueen EP.
He's been pretty stingy about it this time, not wanting us to get sick of it
before it is released.  Can't wait to hear ALL of the new songs.


Josh and Jess made the trip with us last weekend to Columbus
to see McGuffey Lane. We used to make the same trip every New Year's
(and more) when we were much younger… too young to be in the bars they played in
but somehow we always got in.  
Anyway it was big fun even if it was quite crowded.  Once I got in that seat there was no getting out again until the crowd dispersed.

We even got to talk to John at the after party.


And speaking of revisiting things from our pasts, 
I finally got to see Pippin live!
Gah!  I loved it so much and I'm still walking around singing


So yep…. all of that. 
Fun!

And here's my "art" catch-up:

I did some sketching…



And some painting...



Original is sold, but prints are in my shop.


"The Crowned Princess"
(prints coming soon)


 And this one that I just listed today…



I also took some time to add a few images to my
other shops…




I added some cards over at Zazzle.


I don't think I added the actual crowned princess to Society6 yet,
but I did play around with some patterns and words that go with her.
The heart with the words "You are beautiful inside and out" can be found there.






It came from this card that I did add to Zazzle.


Well, that's no all really, but this is getting long.
So if you are interested head on over to my shops to see what's new. 
And have a great day!
