I know I have been quiet for a while, but now you can see why. I have been busy adding to my shop on Zazzle.com. I am so excited to share these with you!

I never would have thought of postcards as an outlet for my art. I owe that inspiration to Kat Sloma and her Liberate Your Art event. There is still time to join this year, for anyone interested. It is free, and FUN!

If you want to join, I will even share my postcard layout for the back with you to make your own. Just comment with your email, and I will send you the PDF. I will delete your email before publishing the comment. Sorry, I know, slacker. I should have the PDF available as a link. Maybe I can get to that tomorrow.

Ok, off to make chicken tortilla soup, and roast some potato’s for dinner tonight and tomorrow.

Have a super day everyone. Thanks for reading this, and please feel free to share it.

Happy creating to you!

They won’t go out until Monday, but I have finished preparing my postcards for Kat Sloma’s exchange. I finished decorating the envelope today. This is the fourth year for the exchange.

There is still time to take part if you are interested. You can see art from the previous exchanges, and get all the details here for Kat Sloma’s Liberate Your Art Postcard Exchange. She has two great video’s of all the participants art.

It is so much fun getting everything ready for this event. But the real fun will start in about a month, when I start receiving postcards from fellow artists and photographers.

I will be sharing the postcards I receive as they come in, it will be like Christmas in March! I hope you will join me, you can sign up to receive my posts by email. (To the right, under my photo.)

Join me in this international exchange! You will receive five postcards from around the world, and one from Kat Sloma. Kat has a goal to reach 250 participants this year. Be one! You can order printed postcards with your art, or you can make your own. If you decide to make your own, comment on this post, and I will send you my template for the back of the postcards. Send your art out into the world!

I have made new friends each year in this exchange, and that is really the best part. There are always “extra” swap requests on the Facebook page too. I included extras for the volunteers who help her as well.

Stay tuned!

Enjoy your Sunday, and happy creating to you!


30 Days of Art – A look Back



Jan 30 in 30 5 x 5


I am so glad I participated again this year in Leslie Saeta’s 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge. It is quite a learning experience. I think the hardest part for me, is writing each day about what I have created.

I know I very often tell you I am not happy with the daily painting. (Lord please tell me I did not complain every day!) Seeing the paintings here, I am really very happy with them all. I know I struggled with wanting to spend more time on each piece. I wanted to create more along the lines of “Fine Art” and less, well less like the level that I am actually at.

I can see a huge improvement in my work, and that is AWESOME! I did not explore Pastels, or work in acrylics or collage as I had hoped. But I did work on Arches paper, as well as start to get familiar with YUPO. In that respect I did stretch out of my comfort zone.

I love the act of painting daily. I love discovering artists, and seeing their work every day. The absolute best part of the challenge for me, is making new friends. There are so many super talented artists taking part in the challenge. The beauty and diversity of what you create… it is a gift! You really are amazing!
