Something new...

Mike cut me out a little wooden owl.

And then I painted.

I think I need to see a whole row of them in 
a rainbow of colors!

You can get this one here.

It was created to compliment this little collection.

Happy Spring!

 Well, it's not very springlike around here.
But a girl can dream can't she?

And it won't be long now.
Be on the lookout for the signs.

Some will be more obvious than others. :)

New Paintings

Sorry, they're all staying here this time.
I used the baking soda "chalk paint" recipe I 
found via Pinterest to paint our little bathroom chair,
our round side table and our coffee table/chest.
There was a lot of sanding involved which I am not a big
fan of, but I am pretty happy with them.
(Can you see Cookie way off in the distance?)

Little Bunny Retro

reposted for Illustration Friday prompt - Eyeglasses

Hello all.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
Just wanted to mention, in case anyone noticed,
that I had to remove almost all of my archived blog entries.
From 2006 -2012.
I once again happened upon a site that was offering my images
up as free downloads and had finally had enough of it.

Many of my older images were not watermarked 
and were just too easy for people to grab and do what they wanted with them.
I know this won't completely stop these wrong-doers, but hopefully it will slow them down 
a bit.

I hope to get the older images watermarked and slowly re add the older entries,
but it is very time consuming and frankly, I'd just rather be painting new things.

Anyway, Onward ho!

There is a new painting in my shop.

But more importantly,
Aaron's band, Josie McQueen, is in a locally shot movie
entitled, Out of Tune.
Won't you please go and like the
(this is not from the movie. just a little porch singing while on a break)
Ah, you might as well go like Josie McQueen's page while you're there.
Thanks. :)

Sorry to say that I didn't get this posted here
before it sold.
I went fast! 
But if anyone would like to have it as a mounted print,
just say the word and get to it.
I think it would be a nice addition
to a young girl's Easter basket.

I would even paint the sides up real pretty, just like the original.

So that's it.
I'm trying to keep to a pretty focused painting, cleaning, work out
schedule, so writing interesting blogposts have been pushed to the back burner.
But the pictures are still pretty. :)

Had fun trying something that is mostly
the same

but also a little bit new.

In my Etsy shop now!

There won't be any prints of this one
so if you like her you better grab her
before she floats away.

It's the day!

Friday? Sure.

First of March? Sure.

But more importantly it's release day over

There are only 4 images from  me right now,
but more will follow.

Here are just two of them.
Colored BEAUTIFULLY by Elaine Hughes

So head on over

I created the original painting at the top to celebrate.
I will be adding it to my Etsy shop at noon EST.
That is very soon.

But if you miss it it will be less painful than
usual because now you can make your own!

I also made a Pinterest board for all of the 
Duda StampingBella creations I come across.
So let me know if I miss yours and will add it.

Thanks Emily and all you Bellas!
