QUEEN OF THE FLOCK

12 x 12 acrylic on 2" gallery wrap canvas w/found crown and beads
$125 + shipping


Just once in a blue moon
will you ever meet a
bird like this ?

HOLY MOLEY, OVER RULED BY MY HUSBAND WHO THINKS THIS SHOULD REALLY BE "QUEEN OF THE FLOCK" INSTEAD OF MEET BUSTER !

He's had a few too many holiday treats and with that crown it is evident he has an ego to match his bottom !!

Buster joins me in thanking everyone who stopped to comment on my little melt-down last week about being "cute". You know, I've decided my art is what it is and if someone thinks it is cute then more power to them. Art is something that only the viewer can assign meaning too. Either you like it or you don't, you think it is cute or gross or bland.

I tend to think that what you think of me is none of my business and on a personal level that is really quite true. I am who I am and so be it ~ the same goes for my art. Even if it does bring up scary stuff from time to time.

I am grateful for each and every comment I recieve no matter what the content. Your honest comments are what allow me to grow.

Jeez, isn't life great ??? !!!!

Being who we are and loving ourselves is the hardest and best gift we can give to ourselves! More power to you! Bravo for starting up a shop online!

If there is one thing I've learnt from going to art school it is that you have to follow your own path. Art is a hard path to follow - it's full of self doubt and harsh words from your own inner critic. Not to mention what other people think and say! It is the nature of being an artist I guess.

All that is just to say: Go your own way and bugger everyone else!

Hmmm-rather resembles my bottom, sad to say.

Paula! My heart literally skipped a beat when I spied your pink beauty with tiny crown! Well done for breaking through the crisis and for busting out of the jungle with this gorgeous, humorous and heartwarming bird flying close by you :) I LOVE THIS PAINTING!! and am going over to peek at your Etsy stuff. Congratulations, you are an inspiration ; )

Paula,
So happy to read that you have decided to live your life and not worry about what others say. I KNOW it's hard but as artists there isn't much else we can do. We just have to walk in our own truth and forget what others say. It's all just opinion anyway.

I LOVE this painting! So cool!
