Three hearts and well wishes

These will be arriving soon. Hearts a plenty! Love is in the air with February right around the corner. Valentines pieces are always a challenge and this year I thought it would be fun to do some simple textured hearts. I am hoping to post these for sale soon.

And most of all HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL! Lets all hope with all our hearts that 2009 shows positive steps towards a better tomorrow.

So be safe! Have fun! xoxo

Christmas... what a rush! As quick as it came it left just as fast. We celebrated with friends the last of the Christmas holiday yesterday evening. I knew when I woke up it was time to get back to work. And I am eager. So, what's in store this week? I started a few Halloween, some Valentine pieces and 2 "lab coat" fellows. Not too scientific, just plain ghoulish fun! So visit back again for another posting on where to find these brand new 2009 goodies!
Have a fun and SAFE New Years night xoxo

New sculpture now available!

With all this cold, and I mean COLD weather going on around here in Oregon, it was a good time to finish this new Spring Bunny. We woke up to 11 degree's. And more snow and cold and freezing rain on the way. If this moves East... beware folks! No joke. Since I am a California born and raised girl this is still hard for me to get used too. We have been here in Oregon for almost 5 years now and this was by far the coldest we have experienced. So time to stoke that fire and get that roast out of the oven. Its smelling awfully delicious!!

Its lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

The sun is now out. So much prettier! Lower photo's where taken at 6:30 am. It's now noon.

We knew it was coming plus more is on the way. I am so relieved that I canceled a business flight out. This is what we woke up too this morning. And its sooooo cold! Crashes every where. Portland is a mess. We live about 2 hours away from there but it seems most of the state got this beautiful treat. Beautiful but all beware. There is a frozen layer under all the prettiness. Great day for staying in. Schools closed. Time to wrap gifts, have a hot cocoa and keep that fire blazing :)

Alice in Wonderful - Depp

First photo release of Johnny Depp in Alice in Wonderful

Crossing over is hard to do........

Leaving Halloween, *sigh* and entering the Christmas season is always hard to do. So to ease my jumbled mind I did create three Christmas pieces. With some evil flare. Prices start at 55.00. Of course, three Halloween pieces are also in the group :)

Just finished this one also. VERY cool unique piece. Check it out!

Black birds
I have to apologize for the photo quality of these two black birds.
Black and white is so hard to capture with clarity.

Update for the week

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween weekend. I know I did :) Also treated myself to a day of wine tasting with friends. All of us got lucky, the weather was just perfect. I kick myself for not bringing my camera. I promise next time I will remember. The view from the tops of the hills over looking the orange, yellows and brown foliage was insane. Topped off with a pre-storm sky. Outstanding.

So what's in store for art this week. I have some black birds, more blue birds (unless I change my color pallet), a snowman, a turkey and a Santa. I should have the birds or a few of them done by tonight. So check back later today.

Enjoy your week my friends!

What's in the works, well, how about three veggie figures. Super DUPPA cute and its been a long while since I have done any of these. Radish man reappears after about 9 years of silence. Tomato man and carrot head are snapp'in there fingers at me right now to hurry up because they are naked! So off I go. Do stop by again to see the new species. xoxo OH and Happy almost Halloween!!
