Back to Earth

16 X 20 Canvas Collage "Sunny" My grandniece Brindi not for sale copyright by me.

Well I am finally coming back to Earth after my first art show. I almost have everything put back in its place. It was a lot of work getting everything together, planning everything and the nerves of being exposed in public. I had a lot of canvas' that were not for sale because they are my family. I think I could have sold more if I could have parted with them, however I did receive two commissions from them. I will start working on them soon, meanwhile I had to take a week off to be with my husband and just rest.....we left town for a R and R for 5 days....glorious days rain and all. I finally got to go to Barns and Noble to by my copy's of SOMERSET STUDIO...where I was excited to finally see my friend Marsha's work on page 107. Her style is bright and wonderful and her new stuff is exciting, whimsical and humorous. If you haven't seen her work check out Somerset Studio or you can go to her blog http://tumblefishstudio.blogspot.com/


I really went hog wild at the book store this time...Must have been awhile since I got to buy my magazines. I bought SOMERSET LIFE and two of their new publications MARIE and WHERE WOMEN CREATE with Marie Osmond of the cover. I thought it was their first issue but I guess it is their second. As usual they are beautiful and full of wonderful and useful art and articles. They will keep me busy and happy for a long time as I go through them many times and always find something new and beautiful.

I love this work! How adorable! Now that your secret is out, your family and friends are going to expect lots of art from you!

Thank you for the mention. You are too kind to me. I just finally went and bought my 3 copies yesterday, one for my dad, one for me, and one for my mom-in-law. I still haven't hardly looked at it, I can't bare to. I just flipped the corners until I saw enough to confirm it was in there and haven't been brave enough to look yet. So thank you for your kind and supportive words. You are so nice.

Love this piece, lady and love your heart inchies too. I'm off to your flickr!
