soon-to-be postcards

So since I couldn't bring myself to cut up the piece in the previous post for post cards I made some is how they turned out.

Awakening Garden Study

I thought I was going to cut this up for postcards but fell in love with the final product and couldn't bring myself to do it.  At 14 x 17 I may mat and frame this.

What phase are you in?

I was out walking on my lunch break the other day and came across this.  Caused me to pause and ponder how life has it's many phases.  I tend to think perception is everything. What about you?

Another look.....

Cool Furniture????

We found these pieces this weekend.  I love the look but wonder if I'll grow tired of them soon?  What do you think?

Your Heart Is In The Right Place, I Know It

Today I've still been recovering from the total shock over the death of a friend and colleague, Greg Miller.  Brutally murdered is not how I want to remember this kind, and often cantankerous man who was my boss for 11.5 years. My head is still not around this. Painting hearts is just about all I had the energy for.

Wow, life is so, well, so real.

Still reeling.  Shock.  Roller-coaster emotions. 

In loving memory of Greg Miller. 

You will always have a space in my heart, dear friend and colleague.

Fresh and green,
slow and easy,
a day to remember
when I am stressed and 
feeling between a rock and 
a hard spot.

The New Year's Journal

I was over at Judy's and she's on a book making binge.  Well, that inspired me.  This was a lot of fun and a nice change of pace.

started out with wallpaper scraps and paper bags

the inside covers

i love the roughness of the page edges

vintage stuff from my friend Sandy and a medal

my first attempt with this stitch
2011 was quite the year.  A lot happened.  2012 looks to be every bit as fun filled and change-able.  I guess the important point to remain open and flexible.

I applied to a couple of art shows for 2012 and should soon learn whether I've been accepted or not.  My work has really changed and evolved over the past couple of years.  I hope I'm ready for the BIG art world of selling.  I'd sure like to.  Only that jury and those customers will tell the tale.  If I'm not ready, then I'm not ready.  We'll see.  Won't stop me from painting and challenging myself. 

Let me know how you are!!!!!
