New Sweater

Here's something a little different from me. Check out Mr. Owl's new sweater.  

"New Sweater" Aceo acrylic painting. 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.
Mr. Owl shows off his new sweater he just got for those upcoming cold months.

Sorry I haven't been around lately. There has been some major bumps in the road at home recently. Trying very hard to get back to some kind of normal. Doing the above little painting helped though. I sometimes tend to forget that art can do that.  

I hope everyone had a great weekend. 

Catch ya later.

I'm Back

I'm back from our camping trip. We had such a great time! Sad that it's over, but glad to be sleeping in my own bed again. Lol! Now I can't wait to dive right back into doing art. I got some new lovely decorative paper that will be used in my collages. You can get a peek at some of them in one of Phillip's photos below. Doing collages is my latest obsession. I like planning out all the different parts and how they will go together.

Here are some Phillip photos.

29/365  On The Road  7-8-13
Phillip had a good view on our way to the campground.

30/365  Firewood  7-9-13
Phillip helped carried some firewood for the campfire.

31/365  Nature  7-10-13
Phillip enjoys nature one last time before heading home.

32/365  Paper  7-11-13
Phillip wishes that plain boring toilet paper would look as nice as some of the decorative paper I just got for new art.


The other camping photos that I took will still have to be gone through and edited and then will probably do a camping photo dump sometime. I'll be around to catch up on everyone's blog soon. Been only gone a few days but it just seems so hard to catch up with things. Got to get back on track.

Have a great weekend.

Winner!

The winner of my colored drawer giveaway is Julia Toussaint. Congrats Julia! She picked the green drawer so she gets what was in that drawer. And....the "Get It All Block" was also in the green drawer so she gets all the other prizes too. Woohoo! This was the first time someone won all six prizes. In the photos below are the prizes that she won.

A set of four girl mini digital art prints and a clay rose in a vase. 

A house brooch and a set of seven monster stickers.

A very very tiny handmade stretched canvas with a girl painting and a wood monster figure. 

Thanks everyone who entered. This was a lot of fun and I'll be doing more like this soon. Looks like I'll be making more prizes since the colored drawers are now empty. :) 

Have a great week!
