Painting on Wood

Since I've been MIA for so long, I thought I'd do a post of a couple pieces I did before Christmas.  My mother recently had a new deck built, and as the men were throwing wood in the garbage, my mom was digging them out for me to art with!  Good mom!

So, I started doing some paintings on wood.



 and here she is finished.  This was a painting for an artist friend of mine.  I actually forgot to take real pics with my real camera.  I think I should.  This lady came out perfectly and I hold her close. I miss her, but I think  she is happy in her new home.



and then, Zombie girl!


I love this second stage...


Hubs really liked her, so we're keeping her around.  Do you love the Zombie craze?  The Walking Dead is seriously the best show I've ever seen!  I finally got the THE episode in this season the other night, and cry my heart out, I did!  Ugh. Tore me up!


and a couple more I started on wood, but have yet to finish.




I was loving the love out of her until I kept going and ...


now I just don't know what to do with her!

or her...



Happy Paint Party Friday!

BBFFs at Art and Soul, Portland.

A long, loooong, overdue post.  

Miss Kristin, Twinkle Twinkle had a little plan...  and so we went on an adventure.


We met.



We had a gorgeous view.


We went to art classes.





We were silly.











and we had our time together as new BBFFs! (Blog Best Friends Forever!)

I am so honored to have this book published in the spring Somerset Memories.  Many of these pages are included, and a couple I didn't show!

And two of my paintings from a day with Mindy Lacefield.



Dear Bloggers, I did not die.  It is amazing It's been months since I've been here.  I can't explain why, but I just didn't have this blogging thing in me.  However, I am now here, and will make a great attempt to visit once a week.  I will visit you all.  I cherish what blogging and this community has opened for me.

oh, and for my ink followers, I got new feathers!  Fly Mama Birdie, fly.
