This is MOIRA..she's a crazy party girl. I am really digging the colour combo of the primary colours. Getting back to the basics feels good. Don't get me wrong, I love mixing up all kinds of fab colours. I can't get enough of bright colours, cool patterns and fancy papers. Something as simple as new fancy paper can carry my great mood through the entire day. Do you get me??

the unicycling prince

This has been a spontaneous piece that I just ended up with...Do you ever start with a blank canvas with no preconceived idea or plan of where you are headed? You should try it...its an interesting project! I would love to see what you come up with!

made to order

This is "ERIN" acrylic collage 16x20 canvas...custom order. Excuse the not so great photograph...and this is painting at the not quite complete stage...but you get the idea.
If you had read a previous post regarding the Art may remember that there was a bidding war over my "Matilda" painting...well..since then, the lady who didn't win in the end called me up for a special request...this painting was a special order requested by this proud mama who's little girl is graduating from requested her daughters fav colours and thought the teapot and cup added a personal touch as this blonde beauty loves her tea time...what do you think?
I have to admit that I don't love doing commissions...I prefer to paint in a more spontaneous manner....but....don't we all?

home at last

We had a great vacation...but 2 weeks is just too long to be gone from home for me. I need my "stuff" around me. paper pens paint journal canvases laptop knitting needles yarn..etc..etc..etc. I could so easily be a hermit. The kids had a great time...and travelling from Canada to South Carolina in a minivan with 6 of us actually was not bad at all. Even the wee one...only 10 weeks old slept through the majority of the drive and was an angel the entire vacation. We are convinced that she wants to move the US...she has a tendancy to be a tad grumpy...but on our trip she was such a happy easy baby... Now back at home, she is her old self! So adorable though we can't stop squeezing her.
Painting is "Rebecca". 16x20 canvas. acrylics and collage.
