Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Sending 6x6x2013 paintings out Friday: PPF

Paint Party Friday:  Mailing 6x6x2013 on 3/15/2013

Well, I was going to do 6, but I got 4 done.  So it's time to let them go.  I have been painting a lot lately and giving it all away.  Seems to be working.  I am opening the flow so more energy can flow in.  You cannot receive compensation or $$ if you have a closed fist and are holding on to something that you cannot release, like art.  These were painted as exercises and challenges on 6 x 6 paper.  I love them all, but they are not going to live here any more.
