here are some backgrounds I painted and loved. So I scanned them in and kept them for future use.

Lately, I have had some deep thoughts. Thoughts that will pull me into another more uplifting place. A grounded place. It has impacted my Artistic style. Isn't it amazing how as we grow in life and learn. we also grow in our talent. When I look at my work ten years ago. I realise I was creating on a different level. A level of innocence and It was so much fun. I still have fun when I create,but I also learned to enjoy every process. This is Something I didn't pay attention to when I first started. I only payed attention to the finished result. I hope as you watch and grow with me you can learn to enjoy the process of art in everything you create.


Here are my latest canvases. I love thinking and searching different images online to get myself motivated .. Do you use the internet for inspiration? I often do. I can't paint a place that I have never been, Unless it is a whimsical or mythical place. Painting can be so much fun when you actually do your homework. You can learn so much information about the subject you are painting just by a simple click. I encourage you to use your resources and gain information and in return you will gain more passion for what you are painting. Passion is something only you as an artist uniquely have. No one can replicate your individual passion.


Happy memorial day everyone.. May you have fun celebrating and be safe

four new fun birds I wanted to share. It was fun painting these quirky birds


Life has many moments we can be grateful for. I try to search for one everyday.I often write them down and add them to my blessing tree. Sometimes they are so special I like to add them to my art work. This week I watch a wonderful lesson thought in Life book 2013 classes. I was able to use some of those special moments in this project..

Here is a painting I recently painted. It is on depression. Depression is a serous disease that effects many. People often feel alone or unworthy to live. Depression comes with many faces. Some people smile and cover it up, Others cry and some even end there life. my heart goes out to all who are afflicted. I would do anything to take such a deep pain away. I relies I can do something. That thing is to paint and share that there is more than one with this disease. I want to let anyone know I am here to listen.. Sending Love out into the void and ask for peace to be brought to the affiliated..



I have been working on how to implement my mixed media passion into scrapbooking.

I have deep passion for both hobbies and often switch back and forth.

I decided to combine the both today and share a little tutorial that you can print up and save.

here is the finished page.

I hope you can create one your self and link the finish project to my blog.
