New collages, partly done.
I am overwhelmed with to do. And more to do. Happily, I snuck away this evening to go write at b&n. Is there anything more fun? I think not! I have my first story, and letter to my teacher, due May 30th. Writing tonight put a lot of things in prospective for me. Thankfully! But Holy Moly, how will I ever fit this in? What have I gotten myself into?
Here are some artsy works in progress.
My first attempt at collaging with beeswax. Encaustic art, if you will. ...this is nearly done, which definitely means, not yet done!
and a second layer of butterflies for this beauty. I do not know where this is going. I love this simple butterfly beauty as is for now. ...Can't you tell that I am very pleased with this week's work. Don't forget that scrappy quilt for Madison's birthday. Still giddy, yes indeedy!
I mother. I art. I clean too much, but never enough. I love diet coke and cappuccinos and my gaggle of girls!
I am pretty alternative in my views on life and in parenting. These kids make me crazy all day but where would I be without my girls? And how could I handle this all without diet coke, coffee, and art? I couldn't!
I lovity love love tattoos and have been working on some covers and some additions. I will share them here, and would love if you share yours! I love people who express themselves in whatever art form this may be. Aside from style, most of my expression comes from deep inside, possibly longing for a sweet childhood, and hoping I am raising my gaggle well, and full of love, and hopefully, very open minded!

As you can tell, I love free flowing, messy, personal, mixed media. I still have so much to learn, but really, I must get messy more, as this is truly how we learn. Finding this art has make me a kid, and this kid inside, never wants to grow up!
