My friend and I had fun collaborating on a few paintings! I would do one layer, then she would do the next, and then I would get it back and do something else to it and so forth until we felt it was finished. It's so much fun! If you're stuck in a rut, try collaborating with a person that inspires you and see what cre8ivity comes about.

I just finished a name for a gal's grandson who likes bugs and trucks and airplanes. What do you think? I can read the name ok but I wonder if it's toooooo abstract? I had so much fun doing it and I really hope the family likes it!
Meanwhile, I have finally finished a name for a dear former student and friend of mine. Dinosaurs playing sports! The themes are always cre8ive! I love the cre8ivity coming out of the people I get to work with on my cre8ive words! Thanks everyone!
I've been working on some special projects for the Mountain Home Arts Council but I can't share them with you yet. As soon as I can....I'll post the work here! I love the project! Hope you will too! It's very cre8ive

This painting is using a new technique one of my creative friends, Jonna, taught me that she had learned from the amazing Jesse Reno! It's a lot of fun to paint with your fingers and that's exactly what this is...a finger painting! Have a cre8ive day!

I HEART color pencil! My poor high school art student's know it! The one thing they don't know is that I experiment with color pencil as much as I can....This piece is done on copper! I got a 5" x 7" piece of copper from Dick Blick (online) and patined (sp?) it. Once it had a nice green and white tint to it I started adding my design with color pencil.
When I was visiting the Oregon coast I fell in love with the trees effected by the ocean winds and knew I HAD to draw one. Since my dad passed away, my mom and I have noticed a lot of "spots" in our photos. Some people believe they are spirit guides of people we have sent to the other side. So, I've added a lot of "spirit guides" to this design. Whether you believe or not....it is an asthestically pleasing design...right?
