Happy Thanksgiving!  Since it's a long weekend, I actually have time to do a little art this morning.  Ahhhh.  This cathedral is Our Lady of Lourdes in Spokane.  It's a commission for a very special friend.

 The oven is warming up... yams and the green bean casserole will be bubbling soon.  Later, off to the family table, which will not be mine this year.  (large, quiet smile as this means no fervent house cleaning and much guitar playing in front of the fire). 

Have a wonderful day and eat the potatoes and bread if you want to :)

Winter is Closing In...

Under a quilt with snow falling outside is a good place to be...  I cut this out as I went and 'collaged' it on the black wool with felting needles.  They are like glue when using wool.  Love this process. 

No snow here (thankful) but it's 15 F this am.  Brrrr.  Time for evening fires.  Happy almost weekend!

Tea Drinking Weather

I sold this painting (acrylic on canvas... about 36" x 30"?) years ago and always wished I still had it.  By happenstance, last year I met a mom at my kid's school who bought the painting.  Her son is the same age as my daughter and the painting hangs in their kitchen eating area.  It's nice to know where she is... and that she has a good home.


ps Happy Birthday, Mom!!!  xoxox

Guitar Row

Here are just a few of the wool felt and beaded guitar ornaments I am making for a show.  It's the Artist's Christmas Ornament show at the Spokane Art School on Garland street here in Spokane.  It's Black Friday each year :)  Proceeds benefit the art school.  Check it out!

Working in haste to have these done by November 15!  Happy Monday... and remember our veterans today.

I saw an old photograph of those Gulf stations in the past and it got me thinking about all kinds of things - nostalgia vs. obsolescence.   This is a big acrylic on canvas painting (40" x 38")... its a work in progress but I could keep painting these many times over before I was 'done'. 

Now I just need to build more canvases.
