A good day to stay inside and paint

I seem to be gravitating towards blue lately. Well yesterday, anyways.

Been working on a little custom work.  I've really enjoyed doing more graphics and less writing.  

The need to create/paint has been really good lately.  I love it when my muse hangs around.  Today, she must be bundled up somewhere, trying to stay warm.  So all I seem to want to do today is to cook.  Huge breakfast taco's for breakfast, Ginger Molasses Cookies for our coffee break this afternoon.  

Trying to get my little space down at the Shop, all nice and full.

I think we are getting close.  :)

Been having fun with numbers.  Painting them to look vintage and grungy.  I think they would be so much fun on a gallery wall.  

I think these would be great little additions too.  Just the perfect little touch for a gallery wall.

Waterlogue App

Well, I wish I could tell you that I painted the above.  But nope.  My phone did.  

Waterlogue is the coolest app I've found in awhile.  It takes your photographs and turns them into a wonderful watercolor.  Check it out here.

I ran one of my custom piece canvas pics through it.  I love it even more as a water color.    Wouldn't they make great notecards?  

Go check it out.

Home Decor Wanna Be

Bookshelves in progress.  Adding more of my own art.  

As I mentioned the last day, I want to be more supportive of my artistic self, in an attempt to be my authentic self.  

I LOVE CUTE!!!!  No sophisticated rooms for me!  

One of the things that I have NEVER done, was to hang my own art in my own home.  Sure, Ive painted walls, canvases and things for other people.  But rarely do I keep anything for me.  And if I do, I keep it crammed in the Studio.  

Gallery wall layout ideas.  

Well no more.  

Home Decor.  I love so many styles.  And there in is the problem.  I love so many styles.  I envy people that can do one color scheme through out their entire home.  But that does not seem to be me.  AND Sweet Hub, always has to put his two cents in (this used to drive my Mom crazy).  


Love the bright happy colors!  BH&G New Cottage Style book 
BH&G, Refresh, special interest publication.  Love the way a simple pillow color change makes it all different.

But he has agreed that I should use more of my artwork in our decor and that if "cottage" is my thing (its certainly not his), then he can live with it.  Looking forward to warmer days to be able to paint furniture.  Estate sale finds are gonna be the norm.  And my own artwork.  Lots of it!
