Apply Blush!?!?

One of my friends called me one time and said, "Why is it that when I put on a little bit of blush I just feel better?"  I don't know....but whatever works!! 
Lately i've been feeling the weight of having so much to, art, house, finances, friends, family, traveling.  How do we do it all and remain sane???  Maybe we don't ;) 

Well....when all else fails....Apply Blush!!

The Journey

Where are you going? Which path will you take? How will you get there?
Be patient. So hard to be patient. Enjoy the moments along the way. No regrets. Yeah, right. So many regrets already. Let them go. Keep moving. Sit still. Breathe.

Where are you going? What do you dream of for your life? Leave me a note in the comments. I sincerely want to know ;)

Some New Stuff....

Trying out different styles can be SO fun and SO frustrating. I feel like I need to "pick a style" and as soon as I do I am influenced by another artist and it all changes. So I just keep going and here are a few that have come out of my process of discovering who I am as an artist:

This one is a mixed media piece with Acrylic paint, graphite and vintage sheet music. The pieces of sheet music read: "Into each lonely hour you seem to come and go. The happiness you bring you'll never, never know. For tho' you left me you left me too, SO MANY MEMORIES of"

This is Acrylic paint and graphite on canvas.

Sides are also painted so it is ready to hang.

This is Acrylic paint, ink and graphite on canvas. It has some texture made from "dried" acrylic paint.

Sides are finished so it is ready to hang.

Oh, and I got my new scanner and printer this weekend and we are figuring out how to make high quality prints. Hopefully my Etsy store will be up and running soon!!!! AND my new website is in the works....WOO HOO, exciting stuff happening around here!!!!! Thank you SO much for following along.

Well, I'm off to Wisconsin for a few days and I plan on sitting in the same spot that my baby girl is in the picture above, on the same comfy couch at my parents' house to get some R&R. I am also taking my new zoom lens and "fancy" camera (that I still don't really know how to use) so that I can get some great pictures of, well, cows. Seriously....I want to take some "country life" pictures, so I am sure there will be a few cows in there ;)

Have a wonderful few days!!!
