My Creative Space

So here is where I create. It's actually...our dining room table! Maybe one day we'll have a place where I can have a studio to work in, but until then...this is it. It gets a little old cleaning up every time we need to eat!  Oh well.

I'm working on a series of girls, fairies, mermaids and the like. They've been inspired by a book of poetry my hubby wrote for our girls. Once I've done all the art we hope to self-publish it as a children's book. At the very least, it will be an amazing thing to give our daughters.  In the meantime, I'm posting each piece of art in my etsy shop.

Here's what the piece looked like when I finished... More are on the way. It's so great having something like the poetry to inspire me. Love it!

ABC...H is for Heart

Mondays here! Time for some ABC action. I play along with Tatterbeans....
Anyone can join in. Just post an image of something beginning with the letter of the week. It can be a photo, craft, or color.
So for me this week it's Heart. I have a lot of hearts in my artwork. I love the heart as a graphic symbol, and we can all use a little heart right?

Today I'm grateful for just being safe and alive!

Simply just being safe and the safety of my family. The Japan earthquake and Tsunami are a wake up call. I live on the Cali. coast, and we are under a not very serious Tsunami warning right now.
My prayers go out to the poor people in Tokyo. It's just unbelievable, the images of the destruction.
Life can change in an instant. I am grateful for peace and being safe right this minute!

ABC... . G is for girl.

This week on the ABC game its G. And that's pretty easy for me because I paint a lot of folk art style girls. Here she is...
Remember, anyone can play. Just post an image of your art, or photography, or craft that begins with the letter G. You can link it up here in my comments.
I play the game every week with Tatterbeans.
