The last year has been messy, joyful, chaotic, dusty, creative, colorful and very fulfilling. The new prints are being well received and awesome people are buying them!
(I guess that's the point).
I'm always so grateful for the people who appreciate my work.
And high five to those who help support other artists! Lets take care of each other.
Yay art. Yay hard work. Yay you, yay popcorn.
I met the BEST PEOPLE at art fairs this year.
I kept this one. It made me feel something and I like when that happens.
This is the home of my beautiful friend Doris. What an honor! Her home is my favorite.
I made so many messes this year. And changes. And Chaos. And friends!
Today is truly a gift.
I received a new wood shop from Neil this year.
I wish I could say I made all these squares but I can't.
Neil is the master behind this craft.
I do other important things in there.
Its been so satisfying to see some paintings from the past come
back to life in these little prints! I'm so excited for what's brewing next!
When nothing goes right-go left.
It works. Try it.
There's more to life than just work! Like engagements and puppies and new babies!
Thank you God for the most beautiful, loving family in the whole wide world.
She bought the one on the left.
Here's to STRONG women in 2017.
We said good bye to beautiful gramma (99.9 yrs old)
and hello to our UofM graduate (21.3 yrs old)
I would not be the artist/woman I am today without all the strong women in my life.
Shipments are so easy now since the post office is literally across the street.
Wouldn't it be nice if I would get my site set up so you can easily order from me?
I know. I hear ya. I promise its coming soon.
I can't stop painting flowers. They are so forgiving. And forgiveness is a wonderful thing.
Thank you Neil for constantly nourishing us. Thank you God for beautiful sunsets.
Ok enough about the new print blocks...but I just think they are so much fun! Can you imagine a wall full of these? I can. Let me know when you're ready!
Commissions are always a bit stressful but I appreciate and
need some of that urgency once in awhile. And then I like it when it's gone.
Thank you to my high energy, happy, hilarious helpers.
You light up my world and bring in a lot of customers :)
Well let me tell you about this guy. He keeps the engine running in my little art business. He sees the big problems and makes them seem small. And then they go away.
He's like superman and a magician all wrapped into one.
Thank you Neil for believing in me.
THANK YOU family, friends & enemies for a wonderful year!
Hello 2018. You're an even number and I like that.
Hi, I'm Carla.
