Computer game art

As I am walking by my sons computer screen I see this...

He is playing some random computer game and the graphics are so cool. I have a thing about tree's and this is amazing.

Another day in a world full of art...

Today I painted some Frida Kahlo girls in action... you can find them for sale here 

I also painted this... wish I could have a plant like this in my kitchen window...

I am struggling with chronic migraines again lately and feel happy each day that I am migraine free. The medication I take makes the pain better but it has some terrible side effects. One day I hope there will be a cure or a medication with no side effects.  

Tomorrow just has to be migraine free....

Brand NEW Folk Art paintings from Jeanette Carlstrom


Brand NEW art available at

TGIF!!!!! and a promised 75 degrees.... How can that not be the best Friday you can ask for. 

I have been painting on and off all week, teaching art and trying to survive the sudden onset of hay fever.  I seem to forget how bad they get every spring and do the "should have" seen the doctor for some serious meds....but then never do. I am buying Claritin by the pound at Costco instead. 

Today I am planning taking a long walk, already done shipping some sold art and perhaps head over to the nursery for some nice plants. I need COLOR!!!!

Have a splendid weekend

Sunday bliss!!! and messy studio...


Today is such a wonderful day!!! I feel like one of these cats as I am doing nothing but what I WANT to do. No cleaning, dishes or cooking today, just painting, blogging and puttering around my studio. 

Boy do I have a lot of stuff in here.... and it is soooo hard to get rid of anything. If I had 100 years to create art I still could not use all of it so how do I get rid of it???? FABRIC, RIBBON, PAPER, DO DADS, MAGAZINES, BOOKS, STAMPS, JUNK, BASKETS, MORE JUNK, SCRAPBOOK SUPPLIES FROM 1996... I have not done scrapbooking for years...

LET ME KNOW HOW!!! I do need your help...

I have gone through my boxes over and over again but only get rid of a thing or two, I need to GET RID OF half of it. I have magazines showing me how, read articles online, done it half asleep or high on coffee but nothing works.

Finally have some paintings finished.... I have not painted for over a week and was starting to go crazy. Here is Frida with her little Kitty...  all of my work is available FOR SALE at

I am in full spring mood... just look at all the colors, blossoms and happy feeling...

As much as I love the winter here in California and need that hibernation after a long sunny summer I am more than ready for spring....
Still have a few of these frames left so a little Frida is always fun to paint.
