Friday Five: Creative websites to visit

The past few days here in the Midwest, we have had hurricane force winds that have stripped the poor little trees of their leaves, leaving them naked and shivering in the cold.  The older I get, the more I grow to hate winter (I do love the first snow...for like five minutes, then I'm totally over it) but have learned that living in Iowa, you never know what kind of weather God will throw at us next.  I do however, refuse to turn on the heat until we can almost see our breath in the house (it's getting close! The low this morning was 22!) So here I sit, huddled in a blanket, hoping my kids are napping (fat chance) and sipping hot tea.....searching through some amazingly creative blogs to share with you.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Now in no particular order......








 I'm pretty excited about this one. I didn't turn over the window (I do this often, nothing like suspense) until I was finished and this is what it looks like! Vintage ($100) This would look marvelous over a bar (if you're the drinkin type) or in a dining room!
 Hip to be square ($75) This one is more modern, which is really hard for me, but here is how it turned out.
I got me some new glasses.  I can see! Maybe the new specs will give me some inspiration as well as allowing me to read road signs now :)

Happy Friday!!!

New canvases!

 Thank you Google for letting me FINALLY upload photos!? These two mixed media canvases with hymns behind them are $40 each.  They look great together too.  Below is a piece I did for a couple (obviously in love with music too!) for their wedding.  One plays the cornet and one plays percussion, so this piece was fitting!

Out of space!

Thank you Google for telling me that I can no longer show my adoring fans photos of some incredibly awesome artwork until I purchase more memory.  Wish that was true in real life....purchasing memory that is.  Well folks, I have a few new pieces BUT thanks to the pending sale of 20 MB of memory, you'll have to wait until tomorrow OR OR OR you can go here:

and check the photos out....and while you're there, you can, "like" the page.

Don't blow away out there!!

Rock Star.

 I have had MANY requests for another aspen painting, as the first one went quickly! This one is a little smaller and with a weathered black frame.  Who's going to claim it first?! On your marks, get set.......($75)
Like pears and poppies and trees.....I also have a thing for guitars.  Just look at them though? They're so sexy with their curves and lines.  This one has sheet music behind it (which you can't see unless you get really close...another reason they're so cool) Rock Star ($100)

Where I'll be NEXT: 
Open House with the amazing artists from Things with Wings
on December 4th in Iowa City. 

Later that day I'll be back in Mt.Vernon at Ed and Bette LaPointe's house for their holiday open house....complete with their spectacular jewelry, a purse lady and a ceramic artist. 

Mark your calendars!

Indecent Exposure....

 I know you clicked on this post simply because of the title.  C'mon, it's okay to admit it.  I've been seeing far too many trees like this.....naked.  (Indecent Exposure $100 three paned window)

Trying to simulate what that painting would look like behind a couch.....Hmmmm

So I was given this empty door frame (picture above ) and after some sanding, painting, nailing and hammering this is what I turned it into.  I LOVE it.  It's based off of a piece of wallpaper I saw in a fancy smancy home decorating magazine.  It's 45'' by 19'' ("Wallpaper" $150)

It might be sticking around in my house for a looks awesome on my wall!

Here I am, send me!

 This is a special order for a family who's babysitter says this to their little girls, how sweet is that?
  I couldn't have said it better myself.  ($25)
I have been studying the book of Isiah and this verse hit me over the head like a ton of bricks.  How often do you say this? (The map is of Chicago area, in case you were wondering) $25

Still taking Christmas orders! Get them in now while there is still time!

Tune my heart

New masterpieces to lighten your Sunday.  The poppy one isn't quite finished's on vintage washed music and ads, but it's lacking in something....can't put my finger on it.  The other ones are all for sale!
