new art in the shop

it seems that it's taking me forever to get anything done right now. i finally got some new art in the shop (along with some older work). i have more new pieces waiting to be photographed and listed.  and then there's the bunch waiting to be sealed so that they can be then be photographed and listed.  this is a good problem. yes? i think it just might be! it means that i'm managing to do what i love even if it takes a while to share it with you to gift and/or collect!

here's a look at some of the new additions.

check out the rest here.

a little time to catch my breath

so far in january i've...

  • completed a commissioned painting for a dental technician at our dentist's office

  • launched Soul Food with jeanette, heather and 36 other wonderful peeps!

  • began the road to pulmonary rehabilitation thanks to my new super smart pulmonologist!

  • lost a couple more fat pounds thanks to a hubby who is shopping "clean-er" for my body!

  • began a crazy room rearrange upstairs giving me a studio with a door again and the family a second family room again...everything (except my studio) is still a mess, but we'll get there.

  • made it through the lowest temps these lungs have ever experienced in my lifetime and that this area has seen in 20 years!

  • found some time to experiment in my art journal

  • started reading through this challenging little book as a pre-cursor to the book we'll be reading in our young adult ministry at church- i just love anything that deals with American Christianity (or cultural Christianity) versus biblical Christianity. reading for change in me!

i'd say that's a pretty good start to a new year. thank you, God!!

merry 2014!!

a new year begins...thank you so much for collecting and gifting my art, joining me in my online classes, and keeping me going with words of wisdom and encouragement.

some new expression is burgeoning in me and has been for some time. i look forward to pursuing it until i can realize it on the "canvas".  stay tuned!!
