HAPPY HOUR




Happy hour for me is any hour of the day that I am able to hide away in my studio, close the door on the day and give attention to the wanderings of my mind.

I just recently created six 5" X 5" wrapped canvas
collage paintings that incorporated hearts and color. It takes practice (and courage) to let your muse go "Wild and Free" and throw color out there without intent. A freedom I have grown over the years to embrace and love. 

 Stencils used were all from Red Lead, a virtual candy store for supplies.

 Yep, I'm a Dreamer, big time and because of it, I have traveled far and wide. Magic and Joy comes from Dreams and Journeys we can't even dream up!

 Using art and color is a great way to tell your story. We all have one whether it's just for us or for the whole world to hear, expressing yourself through different art mediums is the ultimate freedom for your Soul.

 Dream a Little Dream and then don't keep it to yourself... Live BOLD.. Dreams do come true!

 ENJOY your Beautiful Journey... even on a rocky path there is something beautiful to be found.

    Nothing is impossible, with an open Heart!
(Amazing Alterables from Paper Whimsy)

 So get paint (or this happens to be black gesso) on your fingers and paint your Dreams!

       Get your Wonder Woman On and Be Bold!

 Don't Follow your Dreams, get into your Twinkie Car and Chase them to the finish line!!

  3. It might be late in my corner of the world and I should be tucked up and dreaming dreams but oh I am so glad I sneaked in this visit because the joy of your art, your art makes me smile and the words made me smile.
    Fabulous injection of colour on each canvas and love the Redlead stencilled words and I equally love the message, encouraging us to dream and the fabulous collaged images - oh my word, amazing!
    I don't know how you made this sweet bunnies in their cards but they are the most FUN.
    Wishes

    1. Thank You Lynne, I'm so honored you stopped in and I so appreciate your kinds comments and your support.I am always always drawn to color but yet I LOVE the neutrals and the vintage look so it is my goal this year to do more of the things that I am less comfortable with and incorporate more out of the box creations! I am looking forward to this exciting year! Thanks for being such a positive and valuable inspiration to me!! XO
