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!!!

Meet "Meek"...

She can't believe they consider her to be meek.... Petals from collage paper of my zinnias outside..... I've been delaying my post because I had a fabulous teaching that I heard that I wanted to share and just can't seem to come up with the right words to portray the depth of meaning it had for me...so I will wait on it and may have some art to go with it at a later date.....BUT.....BUT....today I was encouraged to show Ms. Meek.....(meekness) and maybe I'll add Peacemaker to it. It was the result of just a fun class with Mystele and a response to an artist by the name of Jill Krasner with her wonderful collages. I just had a couple of small gessoed pieces to work quickly on and used only left over collage stuff on my table...and some bright colors as the base.....when I found or saw the faces I began and just added what was there to collage with on my table of scraps...they are the size of bookmarks....and they just make me smile or giggle. I hope you enjoy them..... I do love collage!! Blessings for a New Year! And sorry I have been sooo busy and not posting....but I did add the Valentine stuff in the shop photos to the left.....ENJOY!!
