Because Art Should be Play and Not Work

Books! books! Books! for Sale!

I have over 75 arts and crafts books for sale: all are in nearly new condition. Subjects from Mixed Media to Fiber Arts to polymer clay and much more.  Email me for a list.

New art and blogging seems futile


First up: Remember Fractured Fairy Tales? Well here is my Fractured Nursery Rhyme


You gotta love Maxine Waters. Here she is paired with Sojourner Truth.



This one is called Elizabeth Meets the Buffalo. George's daughter lives in Montana and often goes to Yellowstone Park. She has a real connection and affinity for animals. She told us a wonderful story of a buffalo going out of its way to come right up to her car window. Here's my interpretation.


And here is one I made called Night Sky.



I go back and forth on whether having a blog is worth the time. It seems I have followers if I look at the numbers but not really many comments so I think people just don't follow blogs anymore. I'm as guilty as everyone else although I do look at the blogs that pop up on my list, but rarely leave comments--too lazy I guess so should I expect comments on my blog.... fIf you do visit my blog please leave a comment. And if you need protest postcards or Tshirts visit my zazzle shop!

Can't ignore what I am thinking and feeling

These paintings have all been made in response to what I feel about what is going on in the United States.  We Are the Storm


We Won't Sit Down


For All the Little Girls



Welcome to America--my wish



If you are interested you can find postcards, posters and T shirts of these paintings in my zazzle shop

Whatever happenedd to 2016?

I have been absent for awhile. Life just got in the way. I have been making art all along, so in the next few weeks I will get you caught up on all the new paintings. I think this week I will start with the Babushkas. First up is "Babushka on a Bicycle".


She looks very determined doesn't she and I love the baby babushka with her kite!

She was so much fun to make that another babushka seemed to be order. I named this next one "Babushka Tiptoes through the Tulips" for obvious reasons.


I love the baby babushka. I think there are more babushkas in my future!
