When I am not painting I have always loved to do mixed media assemblages and collage…
Here is a sweet little idea that anyone can do.. Maybe you even put your brushes in one of the jars!!

Yep!!! That’s what we will get at the finish line!!!!!
Hope you are enjoying your spring!!
So! I do lots of different art type things. I’ve earned my living, miraculously, as an artist for as long as I can remember. So, this weekend was my hometown art festival in our pretty little downtown. Winter Park, Florida is a charming and lush, bricked street, lake in every square mile…..oak canopied, sun dappled type of town.
I remember my grandad showing his beautiful paintings on the sidewalk there when I was a child, and later my mom showing her paintings in the park across the street.. And now, for many years, I have had the pleasure of being one of the artists who get to “set up shop” with my work. It’s a happy legacy and one filled with friends, music, lifelong memories and wonderful Artists…. And a new tradition of “bowling night” that’s a whole other story…
Thank you Winter Park for your love of artists!! You are a wonderful hometown. XOXOXOOXXO
It’s been a great few weeks. The daily 8am meet with pals and paint has been fun, funny and I’ve done at least two 5x7s each day. And had some pretty entertaining pancake breakfasts!!!
Here’s a few little morning ditties!
