oooh! I NEED to take a painting class from you!!Your layers are so amazing! Are you painting away the dear mermaid? I am partial to them, but I really love how your peices turn out! I will be back tomorrow...hopefully to get an answer!! LOL!!well I guess on monday b/c we are taking the dear boy to the world water park (6 hours away for his birthday) Parties are so stressful for the poor little guy that we just go do something he loves for his bday! xox Hope you had a wonderful day. {hugs} T.


I do that all the time--change my mind--or it just totally ends up looking different that what I imagined. I know your painting will be AWESOME!! Can't wait to see it finished. :)


It´s so inspiring seeing the process of how you work. My work seems so boring in comparicement. I know, I know, different styles, different purposes, different commissions, different customers. But your way of creating, your process, is so inspiring. I need to learn to be more free like you. I´ve learned a lot, but still have a long way to go. Very much looking forward to the rest of the process.

Really fun to see your work in progress!! Can't wait to see the end result! OH, and I love the new giclees!

P.S. Thanks for the sweet blog comment! :)


Damn you are brave! How do you get so brave?! I love you you keep creating new pieces over and over on the same canvas! Wish you were offering more workshop opportunities!
You're the best! Happy Friday!
