I think I have a pretty good sense of humor and I find that it often transfers into my art...

Toyko Rose...I think it's funny
I imagine that many won't get this one without Googling.

This one always makes me laugh!
Nothing is better in my book than a good laugh. I believe it's been the secret to the success of my marriage, we manage to make each other laugh several times a day.
Have a good laugh today.

Just a few more...

One more batch of ATC's to share today, many more to come later...I've created 111 to date and have several more in various stages. My box of odds and ends is starting to get full again so I better get busy.

Currently working on 3 different pieces, all on canvas and hope to share them soon. It's been so hot and humid and I find that I move at a much slower pace these days...

Have a fabulous day.

I've had some time this week to finally get my ATC's scanned. Here are a few...

This is what I do with all the scraps and tidbits that end up all over my table. I've finished several this week.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.

May you live every day of your life. Jonathan Swift
8 x 8 on watercolor paper
A favorite color combination, perfect for Summer.

It's been a lovely Summer weekend, not too hot and the humidity is down. A bit cloudy this morning yet perfect for sitting with our coffee enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. It doesn't get any better than this!
Have a wonderful day.

together we can do so much.

My husband loves this one. For little boys, they look so serious.
Hope you are having a great week.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Chinese proverb
6 x 8 on watercolor paper

I was going through some files yesterday, cleaning up my computer, and realized that I had not posted this piece. Hard to believe since it is one of my favorites. The little girl was cut from an old sewing pattern package.
Enjoy the journey, have a great day.

Settling back in...

The only bad part about vacation is that it comes to an end.
We had a fabulous week but it's time to get back to work.

Believe you can and you're halfway there. Theodore Roosevelt

Lots of catching up to do, have a great day!
