Yes, I hear you.
So soft  your whisper
Leading me still

Hey all, doesn't this sound fun?! My friend Amy over at Pikaland has evolved her art loving blog into a mothership of inspiration and community. She has teamed with Jamie Shelman, the wonderful creator of inky kitties, and launched Pikabootcamp - an online course aimed at spurring, nudging, directing and refining us artists who stare at the big world of cyber-business like deer in the headlights.
Check it out.
I'm gonna sign up one of these days soon.

Happy Hearts To You

i heart rob ryan

For some reason, Valentines is making me think of Little Red Riding Hood  and delicate paper worlds.
Enjoy looking here at Su Blackwell's art. It's "my" gift to you on this Valentines day.

Sky Scenery - drawing challenge #3

Lilli, where for art thou?
Hello friends. Here I am in Nashville, posting a few snaps from my show. My birds flitting between heaven and earth and a landscape with delicious sky scenery. I had hoped to snap a pic from the plane but a large body was blocking my pinhole of a window.
Art shows are exhausting. I sort of forgot. Still, it's fun to meet so many people and converse. I am tired of talking about myself.

Fraktur writing

The ice box
Hello friends, I am busy. Too busy. But it's all good busy.
I am going to a show! I got a suprise call just a little over a week ago. I said YES to Tennessee.
The box of work left last week and I will follow with a pile of small works and my daughter in tow tomorrow.
What a mess!
20 below zero in the a.m.s now. I have to wear gloves in my studio.
I will post from the road - sky scenery just may be a photo taken from a plane :)
Always inspired by this

Still Life of a Home

So, I cheated a little. Home. Still lifes everywhere. Little shrines of who we are. A row of retired passed down cowboy boots and a cat shedding on the fruit bowl. (who put his bed there anyways?!) Just a snippet. Enjoy.

Don't foget to visit Elisabeth & Ariane's sites for more of this week's theme: Home and Still Life.
Hoping Lilli returns to us soon with her theme Sky Scenery.

Thoughts for Souls

Emma Barton 1872 -1938
A year ago today, I lost a dream.  A little suprise dream.  A little boy baby named Angus.
There is a story forming, slow and secretly in pages of my sketchbook. In good time
I will share it.
Sweet Angus, I continue to feel you in the world that I paint.
"Nothing ever one can prove it." nends tumblr

God bless all the frightened souls in Australia as they batten down and await the tempest:
Cyclone Yasi  we're thinking of you
