Waking Up is Hard to Do!

It really is, especially today.  So I felt the urge to create an Etsy treasury full of bright colors, vibrant fragrances, and stimulating things!

All that glitters is not gold...

... antique brass, silver, bronze, and glass glitter too!  I have a new obsession... turning my artwork into jewelry!

I was stunned to see these prints of huge paintings in miniature under glass!  Now I keep ordering supplies and it seems like I have purchased more glue in the past month than I have purchased the last 10 years.

Forests or Trees

Lately I am into forests.  Of course, I have always been into forests, but I seem to be painting more forests now than just... trees.
Forest paintings seem to take over the canvas... I never know exactly where we (the painting and I) will end up and sometimes it could take weeks to get where we are going!

I have also gotten into altering my forest photographs to give them a dreamier effect (they are already dreamy... but it is not my nature to stop at mild or even slightly moderate levels of dreamy).
