EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

A START....

Here is a peek of what was supposed to be a self portrait .... a journal page ... which quickly became a larger piece ..... and as usual I made it more than it was going to be! I'll explain some of the little details when I finish it. These pictures are the pieces and some of my art glued on a wrapped canvas, size 12x24 ... a little larger than a journal page. Doing part of it made me tear up ... it really struck a cord in me. I felt very thankful. I will now start to embellish it and add color and drawing on top... I think anyway ! There must be something in my personality that likes to take a mess or broken down house or something thrown away or of no visual value and try to make it into something special. We'll see if I can do it with this. Of course it may only be special to me....which is the driving force behind us artists! How we see... what we see. Hope you enjoy it... so far that is ....keep in touch to see the final results .... good or bad! Have a good week!!

Yep, a one line drawing does wonders, I discovered. "Don't go into detail...."...I said to myself....therefore, no wrinkles, no sallow color to the old skin, and no grey hair!....sherry

I just love your work in progress. The combination of colors, collage pieces, and line drawing inspire me. Yummy!

And yes, I, too, like to "rescue" discarded items that catch my eye because of color, texture, etc. Last summer, I made a journal from paper grocery bags, and other recyclables. I was so thrilled, you'd have thought I'd saved the world or found a million dollars...
:-) So glad to know I'm not the only one.
