FRIDAY at last... but I am not complaining since the week went by really fast (for me that is). Some NEW art is listed on eBay tonight so come on by and take a peek.

This piece above is pure fun collage art with gel medium over torn paper, charcoal and pens. The color is water soluble crayons and the rooftops from a Japanese newspaper... don't ask where that came from... :)

What are you up to this weekend? I am painting like usual but might take a trip over the Golden Gate Bridge tomorrow on the way to Santa Rosa looking for a new front door. There is a hardware store over there that has the best front doors. I need one with windows so I can have some more light into the hallway.  A nice craftsman style door... sort of like this one...

Frida Kahlo Folk Art

Here is some brand new art....all for sale at COLLECT ARTWORK on eBay 

Stayed pretty busy painting and creating over the weekend, the rain is still coming down and it was nice to stay in the studio. 

How can you not paint Frida Kahlo? and I thought she needed a Kitty to love...

Next up was making some Domino jewelry with Frida...

Found some nice chains 18" so these necklaces are ready to wear. 

The back of the Domino pendants look like this with some nice alcohol inks creating a very interesting pattern... I might just have to get one for ME. 

Try to survive Monday morning...before you know it Friday is here again

Seems like I can't stop painting cats lately...perhaps since my cat MAX is always underfoot.
This guy has brand new bangs and wishes he never had the haircut...bangs are just not really for him.

Computers on a trip....

My Mac and PC are out on a trip for a couple of the Apple store getting all the "stuff" transfered from the PC to my new MacBook. I am super happy about this and will soon finally be able to use only my MacBook. 

For the next few hours or days there will be no new pictures in My Art Gallery but as soon as my beloved MacBook is back home again I will post a bunch. Somehow I just can't seem to stop painting lately...and Collect Artwork is loaded with my art.

TGIF to all of you =^..^=

Find Folk Art is now Collect Artwork

Find Folk Art has changed it's name to Collect Artwork. Other than that it is still just the same awesome Art Gallery online and on eBay.

You will soon be able to buy art directly from Collect Artworks website. This is great news.

Find Folk Art is amazing.....

Cats in Cups

I have told you about FFA before. Find Folk Art is a huge store (gallery) on eBay that you just have to visit.  We are by now quite a few artists and the selection is pretty good. 
I have started to paint ACEO's again and it is so much fun. Earlier today I made some domino pendants that will end up on FFA and I will have some pictures to show for it here on my blog by tomorrow. 

Other than that I suffered through 3 migraines this week and worry that they are turning chronic on me again. 
Perhaps one day there will be a magic pill for these migraines that does not put you in lala land for hours. Perhaps a pill that you take once and the migraines never return. That is what I need!!!
Hope your weekend is awesome...

Going from PC to Mac overnight!!!!!

 My husband surprised me with a Mac Book last night....WOW...a dream come true :)

Now I have to learn how to use it (first class tomorrow night) so this is a heads up to all you readers...."My Art Gallery" might look strange or crooked for a little while so be patient with me as I learn to be a Mac user. If you have made this switch let me know how!!! I would be forever grateful.

The school district  I work for uses Apple computers and our youngest (6th grader) is one of the two kids (out of 60) that has a PC and not Apple computer at home. This makes her nightly homework situation a nightmare so here we go...

Wish me good luck

Some fun new art for sale... you can find it on eBay at FFA (Find Folk Art) 

Today I hope for a nice and lazy day...perhaps some painting and reading. I am not planning on taking off my PJ's all day. Monday will come soon enough with kids back at school, my chauffeur duties back, soccer, lunch boxes, cooking, cleaning.... today is a day in my studio, with PJ's, some nice hot tea just doing whatever I want to do.
