It's Time Once Again

Time for Maine!!! I'm convinced that I should be a part of that place forever. Sprinkle my ashes over my favorite beach where I will become a part of shore, the fields, the river and all the life that inhabits it. It will be nice to get away for a few days just by myself. Can't wait!!!!!

There goes the parsley!!!!

I came home the other day to find these vibrant little creatures munching on two of my parsley plants! I quickly moved them away from the rest of my potted herbs in my deck garden then grabbed my camera to take some macro shots! Their bright lime and black coloring was amazing and I can't help but want to draw them now. As of today, they are no where to be found. I think they became lunch for some of the many birds I hear singing outside my window every morning. Good thing because I only had one more parsley pot left!

Butterflies won't leave.....

I need to find a new image to work with. The butterflies are popping up continuously and I can't seem to shake them. I'm enjoying the play, of course, but sooner or later, the season for them will move on and something else will take their place. I plan on making a journal based on all my artwork of butterflies. I love how these pieces continue to develop by fusing my paper-based art and digital art. What is still elusive is the purpose.

Roben-Marie's Beautiful Work!!!!

Two of my MOST favorite mixed media artists are Dina Wakley and Roben-Marie Smith. If you haven't visited Roben-Marie's blog, make sure you do! She is taking one of Dina's workshops and has posted pictures of what she is creating from her play. I am soooooo impressed and inspired by the fusion of their styles in the simply beautiful creations from Roben-Marie's play!!! Both artists are truly amazing in my book and frequently, everything I create has foundation in their techniques. Go here to see Roben-Marie's pictures:


Here's a little of my own play :)
