Just Playing....

These are just some works in progress from messing around with paint and layers.
I'm off in a new direction, though I'm not quite sure where it's headed. Some of the pieces I'm fairly happy with, while others I see absolutely no merit in- at all.
But then I remind myself that they are the stepping stones to a better place.
Usually it is during winter that I am most creative and painting up a storm. But this winter I seem to start and stop like an old car in need of repairs.
But I'll chug along, as usual, and see where it all takes me.
AND I got a wonderful pack of goodies from the faboolous Ms. Nancy Baumiller, wishing me a Happy Birthday (tho it's not till month's end. That girl is sooo together! lol). So after my engine died out from painting, I thought I would do a journal page using some of her goodies.
But it's not quite complete so you will have to wait for a peek! Thank you my good friend. You are so generous and kind hearted. I can't wait for us to get together and
play!
And now I suppose I should get the dishes done and straighten up before my two banshees blow through the door after a long day at school.
Hopefully I will be inspired tonight to move along with some of these pieces and continue the journey.
OH and I'm signed up for the Dreamboard class with Artella on Thursday night and I am very excited about this. I have a lot of dreams for 2007 so with the help of God, hard work, and my Dreamboard....just maybe they will become a reality.
Cheers to Dreams, Paint, Play and Good Friends!

These are truly stunning works of art, very original. I hope that inspiration continues to fuel that creative gas tank, we need your art in this world! I'm thrilled to find out that you're also Aquarius, the world needs more of us too, if I do say so myself.
