St Paddy’s Day Gift for You

In the middle of December, my husband and I bought an English Bulldog.  His name is Otis and we are totally smitten with him.  In fact, we are so smitten with his wrinkly bully cuteness, which will soon turn into a face only a mother can love, that we decided to share him with all […]

Getting Reconnected

Finally my website has a front page again.  Finally our internet is stable and I don’t time out waiting to upload, download, page load… well you get it. Of course to fix, if only temporarily, our internet problem we had to unplug our land phone and plug the dsl directly into the phone jack, as […]

Dreaming on Aquamarine Tides

My new artwork is up in the Enchanted Visions Project gallery, under the title “Dreaming on Aquamarine Tides“. Here’s a peek at a teensy bit of the total picture: I invite you to have a look at the full version and all the other lovely art of the same name.  I love seeing all the different interpretations […]

New Inspiration

I’ve been accepted to join The Enchanted Visions Project.  I’m so excited! What is The Enchanted Visions Project? The Enchanted Visions Project was started by artists, Amy Brown and Jessica Galbreth, in 2009.  Amy came up with an idea that she and Jessica should decide on a title for a painting and then paint their own version of […]

New Art – Christmas Roses

It’s beginning to feel a bit like Christmas.  I wanted to do something to remind us to enjoy the moments, the simple things that are what really make the holidays special, like roses in December.  The tubed version is available at Artistic Dreams Imaging at a fantastic price of $1.00!  Special pricing on all my tubes […]

My Inspiration Map

First let me apologise for being absent for so long.  My computer died in October and I had to get a new one.  There went my personal challenge for the month of October.  Ahh well.  I love the new computer now that everything is installed and I’m back up and running.  After that, other things […]

A Fairy for Halloween

Here’s the third in my marathon of creating Halloween, gothic, scary or dark artworks… and it’s a fairy.  I thought I’d try to stay away from fairies, but obviously, I can’t. Pumpkin Hot Seat by *ToriB on deviantART Full production credits in my Deviantart Gallery. Her tubed version will probably make her way into Artistic […]

A Personal Challenge

I’ve given myself a challenge – to make at least 3 gothic, dark, scary, Halloween inspired works per week, in keeping with the Halloween spirit.  Dark isn’t something I am totally comfortable with, but I decided to try to push myself out of my comfort zone.  I started September 30th with this piece: Run Away Little […]

This cutie is available on tee shirts for your little ones, stickers ideal for giving to Trick or Treaters instead of candy and on Trick or Treat bags at my Zazzle […]

Ahhhh… Country Barbeques

When you think of life in the country, you think of peace and quiet and relaxation.  After all you’re far from the hustle and bustle and noise of the city and all the dangers that come along with it. My husband and I are originally from the city, to be more specific, Chicago.  My husband is […]

New WoW Inspired Art

In my profile it says I’m a gamer girl and recently the gamer inside of me has been reaching its fingers into my art.  I did a render of my WoW (World of Warcraft) blood elf mage, Oria to use for my signature for our WoW Guild Forums, yesterday and worked on it this morning and […]
