Thanks, Coach!

 For a Wildcat fan! ($48 includes shipping/handling)
 A family tree, done on an old cabinet door.  

 For a graduate! 

This piece was done for a special volleyball coach who has been coaching for many years.  She suffered the loss of one of her star players and rallied around the team and they won a state championship.  I was honored to do this for her.

Mama's Day!

 This is James. James Bond. He has absolutely nothing to do with Mother's Day.  He sits in our classroom and scares me just about every day. No matter how much I prepare myself to stare at this large hairy creature, when I open the door....I always jump.  Thanks, James.
 A few more teacher appreciation gifts! (They're 10'' by 24'' and $40 plus shipping, FYI :) 

 This family sent me a map of Alabama and wanted this painting done right over a specific town.  Obviously it was going to a master gardener!
 A special birthday gift for a boyfriend who just bought a brand new guitar.
 Now that Mother's Day is over, I can post this photo.  The husband salvaged this window from an old barn  and surprised his wife for Mama's Day with this window.  I hope she loved it!
 For a new baby's room.
For a teacher and a cheer coach!

Always something to be thankful for.

What a great reminder that no matter what you are facing or going through, that there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for.  It may be a simple thing or something life changing.  Don't ever forget to count your blessings!

Chalk the Walk 2012

 There is nothing quite like spending eight hours on  hot pavement creating a masterpiece made of chalk! This year was no exception as Saturday brought beautiful weather! Most of the artists hurried to finish their drawings in record time to beat the rain.  Here is the beginning of mine!
 And the finished product!
 I wanted it to be interactive for the audience, so you could grab a pole and pull in a whale!

So much fun! So dirty! I had chalk in my ears, nose, toes, eyes, name it!  Chalk the Walk 2012 was a success! It was great to see so many of you as well, thanks for stopping by (and bringing me water, candy and ice cream, I have awesome friends!)

Chalk that Walk 2012

It's that time again! Chalk the Walk 2012! This weekend, May 5-6 from 10-6.  It's going to be great and it's NOT going to rain. I will be attempting another 3D  piece this year, and since we had such a puny winter, it will have to do with ice and snow! You'll just have to stop by to check it out.

I'll be selling most of my windows (all but the bigguns) at the First Street Community Building (the old middle school, right down the street from Chalk the Walk) They'll be safe and sound and won't get wet AND there are some awesome other shops there too.  Something for everyone!

Hope to see you there!! Come stop by and say hello!

Spring is here....again?

(Poppies, smaller window $50)

Iowa is known for it's wacky bi-polar weather and this spring has been no different.  We started in March with warmer weather, trees started to bloom and then these past few weeks it has been cold.  We're finally into May and it's going to be 80 this week, with thunderstorms to boot.  Make up your mind.  The cold weather has given me some extra time indoors in my, uh I mean kitchen table. These windows will be for sale at Chalk the Walk this weekend (May 6-7 2012) at Penn's and Needles in Mt.Vernon. 

Spring birds, smaller window $50 The background is more yellow than the photo shows.  

This is a special present for our elementary secretary.  She does an awesome job of keeping that school on track, organized and ultra happy.  She is probably the happiest woman I've ever met.  We appreciate you!

 Special order for a dance teacher!  Don't forget about them!
Family Tree (2' by 2') Special order.  As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. 

This is what happens when you mow the lawn and the white dog decides to run around in the grass clippings. It really has nothing to do with art, I just thought it was cool.  

More special teacher orders! These are 10'' by 24'' and $48 (includes shipping)

A gift for a special mother who loves the Hawkeyes but wasn't  a fan of the gold and black in her house.  She got green and blue swirls instead!
