I am not quite done with this one. It is on a canvas board and I really think it needs to be a little chunky , so I am going to mount it on wood. I will have it in my shop next week.

The holiday flew right on by ...... I can not bare to think of Christmas just yet, although it seems the entire world is already there!!! I guess Thanksgiving is like the younger brother that will always be in the shadow of an older sibling..... personally I route for the underdog.

Hope you enjoyed your holiday and are cozy warm ( it is getting cold outside!).

Talk to you soon,

One more......

Just added one more thing to my shop!

New things ......

I have just added a few little things to my etsy shop. I love these little pieces. I found a great ruler at my favorite vintage store...... I might make some cute pendants with the left overs.

Above are 3 of the 6 I added. I see them as wall art , however you could use them for your tree. I guess it depends on the size of the tree!!!

More things I love.....

I do not know why I have a fascination with old signs on buildings. I love them. I love seeing the peeling paint come off a painted brick building. Its like the building is showing its truth.

This is a statue in a fountain..... It looks like an average day in my house !!!!

Love the feeling of a city street in the fall.

Again, my love of vintage signs. You gotta love this milk jar!

This has it all....... peeling paint , writing. A perfect wall.

I am actually working on another Frederick piece and I needed some pictures for reference. I am trying to be o.k. with not being able to do it all. It is hard, to let go. The need to have perfect moments...... I think my paint is peeling and me truth is exposed. Positive thoughts lead to positive actions....... I must remember this as we enter this holiday season.

Around town.....

I had to run an errand in town yesterday and happened to have my camera with me...... so I ceased the opportunity to take some shots around town.

I imagine that they pay someone well to collect these leaves!!!

Love this little house...... a Fuchsia door to boot.

If I was not in such a hurry, I would have snuck a peek around the corner.........

I do not know what it is about Farms , Farm life, the entire farming industry...... I just love it. Call me crazy but a beat up old Chevy Truck would make this picture perfect ( especially a red one ).

I love encaustic!!!!

I made a change today, and took an art class myself! I learned how to do encaustic collage. I just want to tell you that I LOVE it!!! I am so excited to get some supplies and go crazy.

I used a picture of my boys and some vintage paper. I love the entire process really. I love how this turned out .........

I will keep you posted on how my future projects turn out.

Old Favorites......

I was at my library with the boys earlier today when I cam across two of my all time favorite books. I hate to admit this, but I love these books purely for the illustration. I remember checking these out soooo many times when they were little.

Now my guys are all about graphic novels, club penguin ..... and things I just do not understand. I looked through all of my old favorites with a sigh.... if I could just keep them little.
So , I let them check out what they wanted. However I got these just for me!

New work

Well the trip to the aquarium was successful. I do not have a fancy stop action camera, so use your imagination with the jellyfish.

I just love this industrial buildings.

I just posted these two in my etsy shop .

Here is a new tree that I just posted as well.

The kids are home today for the teachers to have a work day. I have 4 boys running around my house playing nerf guns. I am just trying to avoid gunfire as I attempt to do the laundry.
