Sometimes you need to get away from everything, block out all other senses and listen to the beauty and unique music of your soul...

Above is my newest mixed-media painting, "Listening." I painted the girl in acrylic, used scrapbook paper for her dress which I antiqued a bit with acrylic, and added some vintage sheet music and little butterflies which I cut out of a magazine. This painting turned into something I was not expecing at all. It all started when I was painting a girl and got frustrated because I couldn't get the eyes quite the way I wanted them. Its funny how that happens, isn't it?

Here is a little shabby Cinderella also, waiting for that pumpkin to turn into a grand carriage...
Both of these little gals are available in my etsy shop.

I went on a cleaning extravaganza for a few hours after yoga today in my little craft area. Since it is somewhat organized now, I thought I would share a picture of my tiny creative space. Although I usually end up painting at the coffee table while watching I Love Lucy :)
I hope you are having a wonderful, lovely weekend, and I will see you soon! :)


  1. All of your latest works are cute as can be. I love 'Listening'. So sweet and simple. Love it. They are all so pretty.


  2. "Listening" is wonderful; I love the idea behind it!
