Henryetta and Lorane

 This large orange canvas is a special order for a special lady. She is re-doing her kitchen in oranges and yellows and loves this song. So this canvas will soon adorn the new kitchen.
 This is not Henryetta or Lorane.....this is Yoda Owl. Something happened to her ears and she turned out a wee bit like Yoda. Help you I will.  Buy her you will. 18x24 canvas/acrylic/vintage magazine ($50)
 Meet Henryetta and Lorane.  Why Henryetta and Lorane you ask?  Those are two of the cities on the maps I used to cut out to make the birdies.  I'm really liking this one.  It may have to stay in my house.....but my gas tank says otherwise.  18x24 canvas $70
Um, yea. This is my five year old and THOSE are MY ear plugs.......not anymore!!

Let the sun shine!

 My chalk mural for Houby Days in Cedar Rapids this weekend! I'm beginning to like the 3D!

Very happy the sun is shining today!

We appreciate you teachers!

What have you done for your teachers this week? 
I got the opportunity to sub in my son's class this week and "borrowed" the kid's thumb prints for this super secret gift.  Hope she likes it! 

Chalk the Walk is THIS Saturday (it will not rain.....just keep repeating this over and over) 
Downtown Mt.Vernon!! 
I'll be there with artwork and chalking a fantastic (at least I hope so) mural!
Stop by and say hello! 
If you have a specific painting or piece in mind, just let me know and I'll make sure it's there.

 Some might say that I have a slight obsession with poppies.....but just a slight one.  I might have to agree. I am drawn to this flower, the texture of the petals and the vibrant colors.  The way the stems are like skinny legs, dancing in the wind.  Sorry, I can't help it.  Obsession ($125)
 It's 40 degrees outside.  This is just plain wrong.  Even the dogs are mad because it's May and it's cold, they clearly want inside where it's warm out.

 I like to use old books to create things for our library.  This newest pretty is a flower pot and flowers made out of an old version of Huck Finn.  It gets delivered to the library this afternoon!
And a sneak peek (this is my sidewalk) of what I may be doing for Chalk the Walk this weekend.

I'll be there Saturday AND Sunday with my artwork (pending any rain....but it's not going to rain!)
