Sneak Peek Friday


So excited to be hanging my art at the Green Earth Coffee Shop this weekend.  I'm sure I will need to make a few trips deciding what goes where, buying frames, etc.  I enlisted my art lover friend for some help and company in figuring it all out.    Knowing the owner like the more mixed media style, I made this little piece by printing the tree from the commissioned piece I did and then adding some more collage pieces on top of it to give it an original feel.

I also found this quote from the Oprah magazine in the index pages and liked it...  "You are the creative type.  We all are -- even if we don't know it yet".


Many of you will recognize my next interview just by this painting, "Enjoy the Ride".  Please come back for this Sunday's interview, "Women Who Create Beautiful Things", of one of my favorite bloggers, Elizabeth Gonzalez of  Elizabeth Glz. I was one of the lucky ones to receive a beautiful ceramic ornament this past Christmas, and the detail on it is so beautiful.  I just love it.

Once again, I am linking up with Studio JRU and all of you lovely Sneak Peek Talents.

What fun! I just read through some of your posts and you are really having a fun time right now! Love it~ I can feel the excitement in your writing voice~
I took Kelly Rae's class as well and loved every little moment. I have gone back at times to remind myself to *be bold & be brave*. It was life altering, wasn't it?

Nice to meet you and look through your gorgeous works~ Yum.
