Happy Mail!

Delighted to find a hand quilled card in my mailbox yesterday!

Hand Quilled Floral Card

Thanks for thinking of me Val! Can you believe we’ve been friends for 1/2 of our lives now?!  Where does time go?

quilling collaboration

February 9, 2011

My second most popular blog post of all time, and three years later, I still don’t own a quilling tool.

I am, however, drawing quilled flowers for none other than Miss  Valerie.

 

 

Maddie was still in the womb when the initial paint job was done.  Now, at the age of four, she has become my youngest client to date.

She needed a little more sparkle…

A little more pink…

And just why is there a giraffe in a garden?

Thankfully, for now, the giraffe stays.

It was such a pleasure to see how much she’d grown and to see how much she enjoyed her room.  I have a feeling I’ll be back in a few years…

Table Dressing

April 1, 2010

It’s important.  (Especially if one lacks decent cooking skills.)

Let it be known, that if Nick had his way…(which he will not)…there would be a stash of paper napkins smack dab in the center of our table.  Aren’t these faux artichokes delightful?  I’ve eyed them for many years in my mommy-in-law’s condo.  Thanks to her redecorating, I not only acquired them, but also a perfectly matching bowl for them to rest in.  They have, however, been temporarily relieved of their central duties, and replaced by these…

Thank you Easter Bunny (aka Mama-Bear) for the lovely tulips!  Fresh trumps faux any day.

toying…

with the idea of abstraction…it’s been rather consuming as of late.

a rough pencil sketch…

hoping to bring this into paint today, along with some others.  Oh and a fabulous art lesson with my little apprentices today.  We studied flowers like the late Georgia O’Keeffe.
