Another day of trying to get my studio cleaned out so I can start to paint again. I have been sketching so that is good at least. I am getting all the ideas out and on paper before they fade away. I did finish one piece a last year which is hanging in my living room and I love it. I know eventually it will have to move on so I am enjoying it while I can. The good thing about being an artist is that you don't have to live with anything too long. In my case...that works for me. So here it is....

This one took on a life of it's own once I started it and turned out a bit differently than I expected really. I have been dealing with issues of good and evil...heaven and hell...a lot lately and I think it is coming out in my work. I am trying to figure out the connection between who we profess to be and who we really are inside.

Since I have little new work, I am going to post a bunch of old stuff on here just to get a base started and then I can add new work. I will be listing much of this work on Ebay in the coming months so look for that!

I am off to try to get organized. Wish me luck!!

Well...I finally get through figuring out what I want this thing to look like and how to make it look the way I envisioned and now I sit down to write and can't think of a thing to say. Go figure!

I really wanted to have something to tie into my art and Ebay sales and to give a little bit more information to anyone interested in taking the time to read this. My last attempt at journaling anything besides my sketchbooks was back in the preteen years with my "dear diary" book that had the little lock. I guess the idea back then was that no one was supposed to get in. Maybe that is why it seems so strange to be letting it all hang out on here for everyone to read. But everyone says it is time to move into the new age so here I am.

I am finally starting to paint again after my long baby hiatus. She just turned 1 a few weeks ago so that tells you how long it has been. I feel like I have has so many ideas bumping around in my head lately just dying to get out so I suppose it really is time. In the is my little angel enjoying her birthday cake. YUMMY!!
