Tree of Dreams

My job today was to come up with an Original Painting on the theme of the Mexican 'Tree of Life'. This is my 'Tree of Dreams'. Each set of similar objects represents a part of the Dream, an element like in Dreaming where, when asked to describe it, seems to change even as I try to focus on it.  As for the Mexican theme, I think I did what was honestly my Original work, without influence of any one Artist or preconceived idea, at least consciously. Though I Have looked at Mexican Folk Art in the past and thought it was extremely lovely and interesting.  The cat in the lower left is a print of my Original Painting called JOY, which i just posted today also.  So nice to be back to painting.

Something New......

This is my new Artwork. I really Love the metallic, magical quality of the color blend.
It is just exactly like my mind's eye.
Sent to They post all of my Art Auctions to ebay now. But I still list with my own website, zazzle, etsy, whatever i want.

First Snow

The first 'measurable' snow has come to Columbus. Even now light snow is falling, the view from my living room window.  Dave & I went for a walk in Sharon Woods Metro Part this morning. Our short walk yielded lots of pic opps, on a 1 mile path where 1-200 year old Oaks are preserved, baby deer forage, and we spotted a rafter of Wild Turkeys. Yes a rafter. Just found that out!

Here are the best pics:

Met fellow ramblers along the way, sipping coffee, carrying coffee, cameras and binoculars.
Great Fun, on the First Snow Day in Columbus.

Any Day creating Art is a Good Day !

Gotta get this to the P.O. by Friday! Christmas is almost here. This Collage artwork Glows in The Dark! You can easily see one special effect in the music note on the left side. There are other less noticeable glow effects, but if i turn off the light i cant take a picture.....duh!   Swarkowski Crystals, glass  beads, larger mirror, silvery reflective paper and musical collage block, plus shimmer and sparkle AND sheer blue fabric tied on the top. Shwew. Thats a One-of-a-Kind.   This is for a Buyer at a local show I did earlier this month! Very good deal on a Very Special Artwork.

Phantom of the Opera and Twilight were the inspriation for this one, titled 'Musical Reflections'.
