SOON ! NEW FRIDA KAHLO LA CATRINA PAINTING ...

 
I had COMPLETELY forgotten 
about this Frida Kahlo 
LA CATRINA painting 
I started a few MONTHS ago ... 
 
TIME to bring her BACK 
to LIFE !

YOU GOT ME ON YOUR SKIN ...

 
It just NEVER ceases to AMAZE me ! 
Once AGAIN, 
I am TOTALLY flabbergasted ! 
And VERY flattered that someone 
LOVES my ART so MUCH 
that they WANT to have it 
TATTOOED on their SKIN ! 
Just received this picture from 
Luana Lu in BRAZIL ... 
 WOW !

BEAUTY IN THE FIELDS ...

 
Driving AROUND the mountain
at the END of summer is 
a real FEAST for the eye ... 
 
The fields, 
embroidered with WILD flowers, 
look like a GIANT tapestry ... 
 
A MEDDLEY of mauve AND ochre 
AND moss green AND grey and gold ... 
And it SMELLS as good as it looks ... 
Of hay AND damp herbs 
AND sunbaked petals AND dried seed pods ... 
 
 And it SOUNDS like SEPTEMBER 
with crickets singing AND crows talking 
AND water in the stream running 
AND black and white cows mooing ...
 
I THINK I will lay UNDER that colorful NATURE fuzzy blanket 
and SNOOZE through the COLDER months 
ahead of us ...

I AM THE GUARDIAN OF YOUR NIGHT ...

SOLD !
Hoo HOO !  
I just COMPLETED this little 
6" x 8" BIG eye OWL painting 
this morning, seated OUTSIDE in my GARDEN !  
Le hibou garde ta NUIT ... 
The owl guards your NIGHT ...  
I hear OWLS almost every night 
but HARDLY ever SEE them ...  
MAYBE if they were CANDY-COLORED, 
we would NOTICE them more 
on a DARK night ...  
AVAILABLE in my ETSY SHOP now !

Hoo ... Hoo ... HOO !

MY SACRED SPACE ...

 
THIS is my house STUDIO ... 
WHERE I create 8 MONTHS a year ... 
While the WEATHER is too COLD 
to switch to my GARDEN SHACK ... 
This is WHERE it ALL happens ... 
WHERE I write, paint, draw, assemble, varnish, 
glue, read, type, listen to music, think ... 
THIS is my SACRED place ... 
My HAPPY, sunny 
and 
MAGICAL art room ...

SQUIRTED OUT OF MY BRAIN ...


Each morning,
BEFORE I sit at my laptop t
o check on my mail,
I pour myself a DARK strong cup CAFÉ ... 

Then I SET my mind FREE
to SCRIBBLE and DOODLE ideas ... 

These VERY quick sketches 
SQUIRTED out of my BRAIN
a few days AGO ... 

And I think they are ALL worth
putting on CANVAS ...
