This one....  sharing my thoughts through my art.  

New art pictures completed

Yesterday, my new photo scanner arrived.  My first official equipment to use to upload my art prints.  I was using the standard all-in-one, but I think my new scanner is going to allow me to share better pictures.
Woo Hoo!!

So, adding a few pictures I've waited to scan in...

Love who you are. You were made with love.  Wonderfully and Perfectly.

No matter how big or small, every moment matters.

Growing and changing.

Peace be with you.

Have a Beautiful Day !!!!

If you get a moment to listen.  It just lifts you up.

This song I heard this morning on Good Morning America by India Arie and Robin Roberts.

I admire Robin Roberts with her battle through cancer.  I watched her come back and words she spoke sticks with me.  "Left foot, Right foot Breathe", through challenges you face.  Take one moment at a time.

Mermaid girl

Mystical creature from the sea.

Lazy Summer Afternoon

The family spent this Sunday afternoon taking a nap and all was quiet.  So, I enjoyed the time in my creative space.

The season of splashing in a pool, playing in the sprinklers and walking by the lake.  It's all about finding a way to cool ourselves off from the heat of the summer.

One afternoon I was watching my friend's daughter swimming in the pool.   She was swimming with fins on her feet and was so graceful under the water.  My friend said she has had a love of mermaids, lately.  I admire those that are comfortable in the water.  I don't fear the water, but it's not a favorite place for me.  I don't swim very well.

The mermaid is such a graceful and mysterious creature.   I was inspired to create a mermaid on canvas.
I still need to finish her up, but she's coming along nicely.  Come back to see her finished up.

My Creating Space

My space to create.

Everywhere I go in my house, there are toys.  My work space is no different.  My family and I have lived in our house for almost 2 years.  I don't have a finished working space, but it's my own.  I work in the basement.  Not too bad because it is a lookout. Still getting organized and I am able to work in the organized mess.  Someday, we hope to finish off our basement and then I will have a great place.

I just recently got a new table.  I was using a folding table that wobbled quite a bit.  I liked it because I could work sitting in barstool or standing.  I, like most creative minds, surf pinterest and I found a great table that I had to go get it. .

My husband was going to make me a table with this concept: sawhorse leg base and use a door for a tabletop, it was on the to do list.  This works much better because I didn't have to wait anymore.  He stained the tabletop a very dark brown and then poly'd it.  I told him not to worry, it was going to get paint on it.

So, I was saying, about toys.  I do share the basement with my children and their toys.  They run around while I create, so it can get quite noisy.  They enjoy being creative at times with me.

My family and I just got back from a vacation in Branson, Mo.  On the last day there, the girls did a little shopping in the downtown area.  There were antique shops that I browsed through.  The last one had a cutest tractor seat chair.  I have been looking for a tractor seat for a while now, to make into a chair.  This was a perfect find.  It is comfortable and just the right size.  My son said he wanted it, I told him this is mom's fun chair.
