Birthday Super Suit

Hey Blogger Family!
My Birthday is coming up Sunday Oct 3.
I will have on my trusty poplin floral sheet cape
and hand cut super eye mask just like Batman's.
Of course you know I will also have my undies over
my tee shirt and jeans while I eat birthday with my
trusty country spoon. he he he he!!!
God has been so gracious to me that He has
granted me one more year to terrorize all you
good people!!! he he he he! I've been reeking havoc and
chaos on this world for 47 years! My daily prayer
is," May you not take me from This World before
my time, before the completion of my years
so that I my rectify anything that I have ruined."
Looks like it's gone be a while y'all!!!!
Up, Up, and Awayyyyyyyyy! Aw shoot I dropped my spoon.
Have a great week everyone.

Collage My First Love

Of all the media that I work with collage, I have to say,
is the one the challenges me and stretches me as an
artist and illustrator. I am constantly blown away
with unlimited materials that can be found and
reused to create wonderful and whimsical art.
I am always on the hunt and prowl spying
for special papers and library book sales and such to
find things to work on and with. This piece was done
on heavy watercolor paper and then collaged with dictionary
and old ledger papers as well as novel pages. I then
painted with gouache, watercolor and crayons and
let the back ground come through. It was fun and next time
I would like to try something bigger. Hope that this
will inspire you try it for yourself. Let me know how it turns
Have a great week!

Welcome Back Zoe

Well today is my daughter's first day back at school and she has
mixed feelings about the whole thing. "Will I see my old friends?
Will I like my new teacher? Will she or he like me? And by the way,
WHATS UP THESE UNIFORMS AGAIN?" The girl has been wearing
a school uniform for over 3 years now and we are still stuck
here! Her dad and I thinks she looks pretty COOL in her
burgundy and plaid. She would prefer wearing her regular
clothing. I have to say though, it's something so wonderful
about seeing a playground full of girls and boys in fabulous
uniforms. Just makes me want to stop and draw.
Zoe, Have a wonderful first day!!
Love you!
