Hearting some arting

Sorry, no interview today. But there is art!

Some of these paintings are complete and some are not. Mostly it's the writing part that isn't done. I find the actual writing on the paintings kinda boring, so I have to be in the right mood. It's so much more fun to paint the women! But they'll get there.

The house of her dreams is just over that hill

She's not finished. The words need to be fixed so they stand out more.

I didn't do this on purpose, but as I was working on her, she just kept reminding me of this gorgeous woman. :)

Seed + Earth + Water + Sun + Time = Life

You've seen this one before, but now she's complete.

her hair ~ the color of soil and sun

her dress ~ the color of the rows

Here's a couple I did when it was snowing so much!

My dream, of us, sharing this winter, came true

love the texture of the snow and their lil house

Eventually this painting will say, "No matter how cold it is out there, my heart will stay warm." I really dig the 3-d effect of the buildings.

I am the woman of my dreams!

Here's my latest work. Love her!

Here's a couple paintings I did back in the fall, but again, it took me awhile to get around to the words. So I'm sharing them now.

Stretch up native heart, wake up wild soul, on this wintered full moon night

Her thoughts became a flower

I'm off to create some art! Have a fantabulous day!



  1. Wonderful paintings I do love all the different textures you use in your paintings and I love the colours in this one: 'Stretch up native heart' so pretty!!
