Again used 7mini canvas but this time I used the wood background as part of the
over all design.

This is the inside . the butterfly a tiger swallowtail is a real butterfly. and the other side is a cool sticker saying I got out of something ????? LOLOLOL then i hinged them together just using small pieces of ribbon . The girl who got it really loved it .

Journal pages from my art journal

Some of my journal pages .
This is my journal cover

Some new paintings

I painted this painting for Valentines day . I called "MISS VALENTINE" I really like the shyness of her .Like she is shy of showing her love for that special someone but yet really loves him terribly . I hope you enjoy her . She is a little late So have a belated Valentines day !

This was painting I did a few weeks ago . The stress in my life right now is the pitts . We are moving to our farm in a few months . Hubby's job is just hanging there by a thread and to keep this house we need to rent it out . We also lost our med insurance . His boss decided without much warning he just didn't want to pay for it anymore . The deal was he would pay for private insurance for 1 year but ours was high and he refused . When Hubby took the job the deal was he would pay for med insurance for the both of us .I guess that has slipped his mind . He will miss Hubby when he is gone More than he will ever know . So I have been painting to kick the ass out of stress . It is helping.

Happy New Year 2009

Well Happy New Year to you all . The beginnings of a new year for me is a start, a fresh look at whats ahead . I like to think and plan out what I might like and want to do for the year . But this year in America, it is grim I must say . People are losing jobs , Med insurance ( us) , there homes. gessh! Its hard to look at this year as a new beginning when you have all this shit going on . But I will stay positive for now . Try to look on the bright side after all we have a new president who has promised a change . Lots of new art projects I want to try out . Maybe a move ............. more on that later . So Happy New year to everyone . I will get 2009 a chance .
