I love these Christmas flowers. When I was growing up my mother always managed to keep them around for long after the Christmas decorations had be stored. This year, I have managed to do the same, with the help of my husband who has lovingly nursed them while I have been working some long hours. I hope you enjoy this February flower and perhaps you can think of something that you would like to nuture along, long after it’s usual season is long completed. Keep making art!

My apologies for the quality of the last two photos…must have been tired when I took those but as I have said many times before, I am an artist, not a photographer.  I hope you can endeavor to enjoy regardless!

My apologies for the first photo.  I didn’t have a good look at the photos before I moved on with the process and as most processes go, once you’re into it, there is no turning back.  Hopefully the second and third photos makes up for my first!  Enjoy!

Recently, I decided to draw and paint some of my mother’s china patterns.  The china has already been commandeered by various family members but I wanted to create some memory of it, the fine dinner parties and the good company for my mother.  Here is the first attempt at one of her pieces using a process approach.  Most of you know I’m not what I would call a “perfectionistic” or “fussy” artist.  I barely look at the page when I draw, trying to trust my eye to send the proper messages back to my visual cortex and hope that it all transfers through to the motor cortex properly!  I hardly ever erase so what I see is what you get.  Enjoy, have a root through your family things and see what you can make of it and, as always, keep making art.

My niece is getting married on June 7, 2013 and I wanted to try out an idea for her wedding gift.  I would like to create a piece with this same idea but with her bouquet and her wedding shoe.  The bouquet is made up of peonies and I’ve just got to snap a photo of her shoes!  Creeping her Pinterest page may help!  Enjoy, suggestions are welcome and keep making art!

This weekend I attended the wedding of my nephew and godson, Devin, and his lovely new bride, Kimberly.  I couldn’t help but think of Jim Cuddy’s song “Everyone Watched the Wedding” as I experienced their day with them…..two people in love…there is nothing more inspiring in this world.  Congratulations Devin and Kim!!  I love you both!!!  Enjoy, look around you, you’ll find people in love everywhere and as always, keep making art…and love ( I couldn’t resist!)
