I was given this picture of a baby's quit to decorate matching letters for the baby's room.

I am really happy with the result. I drew the baseball hat and football helmet to match the balls. Then paper pieced them together to match.The balls are wooden pieces from Michaels.

Boys Rule July Page Sketch

  Love this face
 Pierce 19 months

Old and new friends who inspire me

This is my very first mixed media project. I have always loved see works of art of people's insights. I find it hard sometimes to share my thoughts ,so I will try and put my feelings in pictures also. I love ustream and have learned so much from the different broadcasts. Since Christmas I have watched Dede's "Coffee in the morning". She is very funny and shares everything she know about collage and drawing, freely. One of her favorite sayings is "get over yourself" "just do it" and so I am. I also watch Barb Owen's "creating_faces" and she has great stories while she teaches her mixed media art works. Her saying is " be fearless" . I put both messages together and put it on canvas to hang in my craft room as a reminder.Thank you to both for sharing and encouraging so many people. 

My friend Trish Evard Daly took the Instagram picture of a sunflower that makes me so happy just to look at it. I used it for my mixed media project .I am also working on a collage of this picture,I will share when done so for now feast your eyes on this

Teaching a dog new tricks and letting go

 First-time trying to draw a face. Wanted to see if I could learn to draw and how I would improve.I used pencil and color pencil. So I am taking a course Fabulous Faces with Tam at willowing .com 
After one class very happy with the improvement, I think I can do this . I have always wanted to draw and decided just to do it and not worry if I am good only if it makes me happy. I am happy. Pencil only
