new painting, in the works, and a bloggie award!

little pieces for you.  tease.

I am so in love with this texture!

This canvas is huge.  Huge, I tell ya.  I have never worked on anything so large.  I am excited for what awaits us tonight, in the quiet hours, when I should be sleeping.  There is a sense of darkness here, but so much light too.  I think that is what I always do, and always come back to, in the real world...the land of Valois! And those little houses and triangles, clearly not glued on, are just my little way piecing it all together, before I...piece it all together!

Now, I got a blog award.  How fun.  I guess some love my candid, no frills, tell it like it is, side.  Honestly, I can't live in a fake world and sugar coat anything.  I struggle.  I write about it.  And I feel better after I do.  It seems to work for me, and really bonds us mothers together, eh?

So, Karen, from Ow, My Angst, found here, I humbly thank you.

And maybe I overdo it a bit.  Maybe I should just call a friend.  But I am a writer.  A screamer.  A let it all out-er!  I can't help it.  It puts my world into perspective for me, and somehow helps me cope.  And this is my one tiny space, so I roar!


  1. from one screamer to another - HI, and nice photos. Look forward to seeing/reading more.


  2. girl, maybe not everyone can deal with a blog/life-story-teller who lets the dirty bits show too, but i appreciate the honesty. and you have plenty of lovely, like your post tonight that show the happy bits too. you're balanced & we love you.

  3. love the texture, the colour and can't wait to see it finished..oh...and btw...scream away..i can so relate!!!!lol,,,

  4. Oooooo Hi, nice to meet a blogger who is actually normal! But however stressed you may get you have a wonderful talent and beautiful beautiful girls x

  5. love all the textures on this

  6. Let's be clear about this - I ADORE you! You are so much fun to read and your artwork is amazing - you are a total inspiration and I am SO GLAD that we "met." Don't change a thing ;) xoxo

  7. I have to say, I love this piece! I am so in awe of the collage/mixed media. I have yet to really delve into this type of art, but I sooo want to. I'm not really sure what I am waiting for, other than we are in the moving process and I guess I don't want to start any big, new projects.
    You are very inspiring and I love that you tell it like it is. I admire that in others, and I wish I was more like that. I tend to hold it all in.
    Your blog is truly fantastic!


Hey you!!!
