Pink Hair, Toilet Bowl Lid Art, and a WIP!

Hello Hello!  I have been away, staying way too busy, and finishing up summer with my gaggle.

When I left off last, I was showing off my Toilet Bowl Lid Painting for a charity auction hosted by Fallen Owl Tattoo!  The event was awesome soy sauce, and my painting, lid, did sell! (exciting!!!)

Do you remember the painting?

Here is the post if you want to catch up!

Now anyways, this was all very fun for me.  And I was so nervous going into it. And here I am, with my lid...

Yup, I have pink hair!

and about this pink hair...let me share a close-up with you.  My hairdresser outdid herself, and my hair rocked!!!  (Sadly though, the roots were not so easy, and now my hair is more of a darker cherry than bright pink.  sorta boo!)  The purple was sprayed on over a stencil.  Very cool!

Now, we talked toilet bowl seat and pink hair, so last, but not least, a work in progress.  This mother is BIG with so many layers upon layers.  I don't know where to go with it right now, so I set it aside.  I am certain it will call to me soon!  Linking to Paint Party Friday! Woot!

on a little extra side note... I have begun to sell my paintings, and prints.  This week I sold DREAM, a favorite among many.

I also have available a few more for purchase, and if you're interested you may reach me at  I will be opening up my Etsy site this week and will add them there as well.

This board never got a name.  In my head, it's just Happy Land!

Living a wonderful, colorful, jolly life.

  1. Ah, la toilette!!!
    But your other pieces shine with detail and color!!!

  2. wow i just love your work!! I see little houses & people and... very cool!! awesome hair too :D I went aqua blue for a couple of months but the effort required 4 bottles of bleach, and my damned hair kept falling out. worth it? for a while at least!

  3. so much here to remark and marvel over...but I have to ask you what happens when you comb your hair? Does the stensil go away? It looks so cool. I have never seen such a thing done before.

    congrats on selling a painting! Wishing you many more sales.

    I'm so glad you tried to do some birthday art this year- have you been able to finish it yet? The past couple years, I haven't finished mine on my actual birthday either, but I always start it then, so the concept was from that day...

  26. Wow, you've been super busy and super creative. Awesome stuff.

  27. I forgot about your potty seats. I like it, whoa, it's a great throne. The hair is absolutely the best, especially with the purple stencil. Very Smart and Chic. Your huge painting is awesome. . . your ideas are spectacular. Blessings, Janet PPF

  28. First of all, I've never thought to paint a toilet lid but it definitely has me thinking. Secondly, I have ALWAYS wanted pink hair, alas my hubby like *pah* my natural hair color. So jealous! Thirdly, you are an amazing artist. Thanks for stopping by my site, so I could come learn about yours!


Hey you!!!
