Rosa Offers Her Heart
16 x 20 x 1 gallery wrap
mixed media on canvas

Springtime and Rosa feels love in the air.

What is that song?? How does it go????
"Love Is In The Air"
I think it was from the old TV series "Love Boat"?
I never watched that show but for some
reason I'm remembering the theme song.

So anyway, back to Rosa. She is an angel, see her halo?
She keeps sheep and they graze about her house.
They don't need a corral since they love Rosa and they
never leave her yard.

Tulips ~ ~ ~ Rosa is a lot like me.
This girl loves her tulips !

I wonder if a shepherd looking for work will ever
wander by and offer to care for Rosa's sheep, and
her heart as well.
I bet she'd offer it up.

Feautred Artist !!!!

Kim at Kim-Creating Space really got me going this morning. She has included in her current post a project that I can hardly wait to run home and try out. I just love the effect she got with technique and can think of all kinds of ways to make this fun and different and my own. How about you? Ready for a little distraction? Try this out !!!!!

Wow! A new camera makes all the difference in the world ! A few weeks ago I took a photo of this cat and it was nice but this new camera makes it fantastic ! Want to look like a professional? Get a decent camera. I certainly didn't spend a lot of money but just a bit more sure does help.

Making a Mark on your life. Thinking about life and all those I come in touch with and the implications of making a mark. I like to think I am making a positive mark on the lives of those around me, my friends, family, co-workers, and especially my spouse and grandbaby.

Making a Mark is also about what my art says. The message I convey, I hope, makes a positive mark on those who view it.

Life is short, make a positive mark.

I have serious Spring fever.
It is beautiful here today but I know there are plenty of cold days ahead.
I'm so glad to have this photo of my flowers from last summer.......*sigh*.
Where do you live? When does Spring arrive for you????

I once had a great old cat named Rocky. He was a stray found by some friends and he came home with me. He was a great hunter. Pretty independent. Rocky was a good guy.

Thinking about art, like I do.........

All of life is art. There is the art of romance, the art of negotiation, the art of fine dining, the art of simply living.

This coming week I will manage a fairly large project (for me it is large). The company I work for is having new carpet installed in the office. Big project you say? Well it means moving 25+ employees out of their cubicles, taking down those cubicles, laying the carpet and then putting it all back but in a new configuration. Oh my gosh, electricians, data drop and phone technicians, movers, carpet layers, the guys who take care of the cubicle build. And then thee are the employees. Everyone has so much stuff and it all has to go in boxes. Just the computers, copiers, printers, phones, keyboards and incidental equipment is mind numbing. We are a 24/7 type business so our customers need product and service at all times................yes, life is an art.

So for the next week, or so, I'll be practicing a different kind of art from that which I post about here. I'm going to focus on this as art, I'm going to look at this in a different way than one might expect and see what bubbles up.

Yet another day with my friend, ART, no-no-no, that's "art mind", not some hunk of burning love guy. Though I did know a guy named Art once. I digress......................

So many ideas swimming around in my head and not enough time to get them all out. Funny how sometimes it seems like a game of creative feast or famine. My "art mind" is so afire with ideas that I have a hard time sleeping. That is the trouble with this day job....I'm sure I'm not the only one who suffers this disease.

I am fickle. I like change. Boy that old blog page template was getting on my nerves. Not that anyone would probably notice. I like this. Well, for now.

Hope all is well with you.
