Hidey-Hoe my peeps. I hope you had a great weekend. We have been so busy for the past week, working on remodeling the front of our home and yard. Lemme just say, OY! My back, lol…my partner is amazing. He does more work by 8 am everyday than most people do in an entire day. It looks incredible now, I love that man! It’s just the first phase of the revamping going on. This winter we plan to continue on the studio remodel, we will be adding a huge gallery space and future classroom! Also we will be building a live stage. When we shoot live video’s and for our newest idea….drum roll, please…
We have an annual art sale every year, this year we thought it would be fun to take it to the internets and have weekly Art auctions! Every Saturday in November we will be live on our You Tube channel !
Don’t miss it, we plan to have a surprise or two up our sleeves every week. Plus you get to watch us be goofy and try to figure all this stuff out! It’ll be a blast. I’m really excited about it and am hoping it’s just as good of an event, as when we have been hosted locally. We are going to open the art vault and bring out the best of the years works! We plan on super low opening bids and hopefully everyone will consider it a win-win. 🙂 Can’t wait, I hope you will join us 11/3/18!
In other arty news, I’m still working on the oil paintings…update photos:
She is One With It All- 24″ x 20″ x 2″ -Oils- HA! 2018
This one is at rest. I think I may sign her…or I may not. I’m thinking about it.
This one is WA?’s new one…it’s looking real good, WIP:
So, there’s that, what else is there? Oh yeah, I’ll be learning a new skill this week. Sewing! With a machine! OMG. I am a capable woman, I can do almost anything…except sew. I’ve always wanted to know how to do it and we have dear friends who are having a costume party! Hence the sewing. We are going as the King and Queen of Cups from the tarot deck. Today I am making a kings crown and later, the man is going to show me how to use the sewing machine. I will then make the most fabulous capes the world has ever seen. Followed by a kings tunic and fancy scepter. The Queen is regal and a little less embellished…but she reads the tarot deck and sees the future! I’m gonna so rock this…I hope! 🙂 I’ll post pictures when we get them done an thank goodness my partner is down for the teaching. Good lord I’ll be Michael Kors in no time, watch out RuPaul, I’m coming for ya! lol
That’s all for me, I gotta go be fantastic and then make dinner. It’s a life. A good gig if you can get it. Love to all, HA!
Hello everyone! Happy Friday, I hope you have had a good week so far. I mean if you don’t go online, don’t read anything or watch any news…it’s all easily, just peachy-keen. I do know what’s happening out there and I am trying to control my disgust and outrage…basically so I don’t hurt my own system. How do I get to escape, you ask? Art Making. I get to the easel, table, stand, what have you and I make art. Yeah, so there’s that.
In other news, I am now officially in the last year of my youth. 49 has arrived and I plan to enjoy the heck out of it, come hell or high water.
I did get a little art in this week and I painted this really nice painting, on the full moon. I mean I painted the full moon while the full moon was happening. Did you see it? It was so amazing!!! It looked like this…
🙂 At least that’s how I saw it. With my artist eyes. I filmed it of course…so here’s the reel. I hope you enjoy watching it come to life. 🙂
The original artwork should make it to the sales floor soon…I need to get myself an assistant that loves inputting info to the computer, takes great product and art photos and files stuff…heck, I just need to borrow someone’s cloning machine. Anyone? 🙂
I hope you have a fantastic weekend! I got to burn rubber on the day. I love you and thanks so much for being here today. HA!
The Dryad SOLD!! 12/22/2017
oils on canvas
48″ x 36″ x 1″
The Dryad. This oil painting is full of symbols, magic fantasy and gratifying line work. As she sweeps through the seasons, the light plays with her colorful hair and the animals of the forest follow her musical call. She came to me in a dream and told the legend of the soul healing spring, hidden deep, in her forest. Guarded by dragonflies and the great mother trees. As we worked together for many months, I think she became fond of me, because she shared her secrets with me. She is kind and generous and very much a queen. Deeply rich jewel tones and sparkling line work add vibrancy and calmness to this work, I like healthy tensions. As I live with her, I continue to remember the dream, she took me down to the river and washed me clean, smoothing my brow and kissing my closed eyes. I feel her with me, always now. I know how good is is to be loved by a goddess, just as I am.
You can buy her now in the

Howdy everyone, happy after Bang-Bang day, here in the good ole U. S. of A.
We partied like rock stars… grumbling old rock stars who couldn’t hear the T.V. after dark, got little to no sleep and had to comfort a scared Mr. Stinky Pants…yeah that’s how we roll. Cherries and cheese and Mr. Stinky (pictured below) in bed at 8pm. We know how to do it up, round here. LOL
It was a lovely long weekend, we did lots of projects together and ate a lot of awesome food, that we took turns making for each other. It was actually super kicked back, delightfully loving and generous in the time we shared, paying attention to ourselves. <3 Yay for LOVE. I love you Mr. Alley, thank you for a wonderful vacation. <3
We did get paint on those giant canvas’s too. Wanna see? Ok…hold your horses, I gotta find the pictures, oh..here they are: (well, mine anyway…)
Well, this is one of our projects, a pond alter to compassion and love <3 We added a bunch of goldfish to our pond too, so it’s a living sacred space.
The photo’s wanted to load all backwards and I’m rolling with it…yup.
The Mother HA! 2016 Oils 36″ x 48″
stopped by and sat in studio for me. We chatted and drank tea. She was all into her Spring and Summer line-up’s so she did most of the talking. She’s not shy, I’ll tell you. She insisted I go outside and find lots of leaves to paint into her hair, I was raised right and did as the Lady requested. We got to work making negative prints with the oil paint. She loved the maple leaves and the trillium’s too. As we worked, she called the birds and butterflies to have a social hour and they talked of all the news worldwide. Buds bursting in every corner, the bird’s reported and the butterflies were all a flutter about something, I couldn’t quite make out…I’m not yet fluent in butterfly. I am working on it. 🙂
I am pretty sure this work will be months in the making. I have so much space to fill and I am going to take my time and enjoy the process.
No hurry. No rush. That’s what she is teaching me, to slow down, look at that glowing leaf, listen to the bird’s telling stories, visit with the garden slugs and ask how the soil is doing today. Find frogs, kiss them just because. Bake a cake for your pets. Hug someone for 30 seconds for no reason. Play a concert just for the dragonflies, I hear they really dig Mumford & Sons as they are very trendy beings…they claim to have started the hipster movement…you know those dragonflies and their stories…
So…there will be more to come with this Lady of The Earth. 🙂 I hope you enjoy.
I gotta get to the day job and make that money.
Hey! before I forget…today is the last day of the Grand Opening Sale over at Etsy. These once in a lifetime prices end today. Ya still have time, so scoot! Get on over there and grab your new art today. 🙂 Here’s an image link, for your ease.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope your day goes extra special good. <3 Love always, HA!

I just wanted to take a minute and explain what this campaign is.
We set this campaign up as an all-or-nothing 60 day run.
What that means to you all is that from now until 2/27/2016 this project will be up, if you were to donate today, in any amount, you will not be charged until 2/27/2016 unless ONE thing happens.
1. We reach our goal of 10,000.00
So…if you were to donate today and tell me the title you want for your reward, it (the donation) would not be charged (or shipped) to you unless we reach our goal. (2/27/16)
We are shipping all USA donation rewards for FREE at the end of the successful campaign. Everything will ship within 5 business days of the close of the campaign. 2/27/16
We didn’t want to ask for charity and we didn’t want to “fire sale” our hard work for the last year and a half so we thought this would be a great win-win and a safe bet for everyone. We were working hard to have a launch showing, before this “event”. We have a body of work to present and we are doing it now. We roll with the changes life offers. Take a look at the work. We are serious artists doing hard work.
We do have a plan if we don’t make our goal. (we understand it seems really big) If by chance we don’t make it to goal, everyone can still collect their paintings at their donation prices after 2/27/2016.
You would just have to do it directly through us.
We are living in a city with a housing shortage. Rentals in our city are over 1500.00 a month for a 3 bedroom anything. (we have 2 boys, one 9 pound ozwald dog, and a diva cat)
Currently, in our city, landlords want first, last and non-refundable pet and cleaning deposits as well as added monthly pet rent for each animal to move into a new rental.
Our landlords are currently wanting to take advantage of the market and sell the house we live in asap.
We thought if we were going to spend that much money and have no more security than we have at the moment (read, none) then we should try for our own home. We were counseled over a year ago about how to prepare for a home purchase and have followed the instructions carefully. We did it!
We are getting approved for a home loan as we speak.
Our stopping point at the moment is that the landlords have made their choice to sell before we had our savings in place for a purchase. Bill and his son Leo (13) have lived here for 18 years with a perfect rental history. The landlords are new owners who have inherited the property.
In this market 5000.00 is the min. cost for a rental move, 10,000.00 is needed for closing costs and a small down payment. So all of a sudden 10K is a reasonable number, ain’t that the way it goes? 🙂
I wanted to explain that no one is getting charged TODAY for their donations…AND you will ONLY EVER be charged IF we make GOAL. 🙂
Unless that is we don’t make goal and you still want your reward painting then we would do the arranging and donating at that time.
That’s how all- or- nothing works. Just so you know. 🙂
Big love and thank you all for sharing this campaign on your sites and social media feeds. We so appreciate every single one of you.
