Self Portrait #7

June 3, 2010

if I were a material girl…a few of my favorite things.

Self Portrait No. 7 - Material Girl

1.  Gap jeans – my favorite pair.

2.  Great-Grandmother’s wedding band.  Oh how we miss her!

3.  Scarves.  This one, hand-painted in Belgium, a gift from some old friends.

4.  Flip-flops (my feet hate socks!)

5.  My Blushing Mona Lisa, a canvas print by dear friend Dana Jo.

6.  Paint brushes.  I don’t think I’ve ever thrown one out.  Too much story in them.

7.  Painting by Lee Anne. She offers the best kind of inspiration.

8.  Our wedding rings. (photo by Jade McCully)

9.  Hand-written recipe cards.

Studio Overhaul…

February 22, 2010

After living here for the last 8 months or so, It’s about time I got this studio in working order…Bulletin boards and calendars are pretty well useless if not hanging on the walls.  So this weekend, I painted the studio a fresh February Frost color.  Something punchy to get me motivated.  Here’s a sneak peek…I still have a long way to go, but I think my Blushing Mona will fit right in.

Oh and don’t forget!  Today is the LAST DAY for 1/2 Price Kitty Portraits!

Wishing you all a lovely Monday ~ xo
