I have been working on these sweet little pendant necklaces for the last few weeks and am so happy to finally be able to share them with you. They are FOR SALE in my Etsy shop...just in time for holiday shopping! I have 9 different designs available. If you would like one custom made for you in a different metal finish (antique bronze, antique copper and antique silver are the choices), please contact me and I will do my very best to accommodate you.

I had made a few of these sweeties last year in only the oval shape and once they sold out, I decided to try some more of a variety with the rectangles and squares and with the addition of a cute little matching flower charm (because let's face it, mostly all of my latest paintings include flowers...and I'm perfectly okay with that). I thought the charm was a lovely addition.

Each one of these are entirely HAND CRAFTED by yours truly...from the necklace cards they are placed on (designed by me and printed by Vistaprint) to the tiny little bows tied by my arthtic right hand and I "little labors of love".  I hope you love them as much as I do.

Otus' Opus In Bloom
6x6, mixed media on canvas panel

Little Otus...with an ostentatious screech here and there, he manages to assemble quite the composition. So much so, it makes the flowers bloom...even at night. PRINTS are available and the ORIGINAL PAINTING IS ALSO AVAILABLE. Contact me if interested.

I worked on this little guy over the summer along with a baby fox (available next month in my etsy shop). Had such a blast making a couple of mixed media animals last summer, that I carved out some time to do a couple more this summer. These are so much fun and allow me to use the wide range of art supplies I have (and I still never manage to use them all-I mean one can NEVER have too many art supplies. just sayin'). Everything from my beloved acrylic paints to scrapbook papers, sheet music, oil pastels, palette knife, inks...and the list goes on. Looking forward to sharing the fox in November. Speaking of November....

it's one step closer to (wait for it, wait for it)...WINTER!! And oh how I have MAD LOVE for winter. I mean someone has to, right? Well, that someone is ME! :) On my easel right now is a winter themed painting featuring snowdrops (I so love the delicate beauty of those flowers). Here's a peek...

She's a beauty, if I do say so myself.

And, before I forget....NEW PENDANT NECKLACES coming next Thursday, November 2nd to my etsy shop. I redesigned them and added sweet little flower charms to further showcase the artwork. Super excited to share these just in time for the HOLDAY SHOPPING SEASON!! Stay tuned....

My heart literally breaks when i see all of the photos of the devastation in South East Texas. When I especially think of the little children who have lost their homes-theit safe havens, their sacred play spaces well, it's almost too much to take. Kids will always have the most special place in my heart. I want to help. I am running a LABOR DAY SALE in my Etsy shop until Monday, September 11. EVERYTHING IN THE SUMMER CLEARANCE SECTION (WHICH IS ALREADY DISCOUNTED) IS NOW 50% OFF. 75% OF YOUR PURCHASE WILL GO DIRECTLY TO SAVE THE CHILDREN HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF FUND. I will send you a notification with your purchase that your funds did indeed go to
Help me clean out my studio and in turn, help all of the children who have fallen pray to such a devastating event that no one (especially a child) should ever have to face,
