I live in Mooringsport La. and work in construction full time and dabble in art when ever I can. I would love to be able to do my art full time--who knows, maybe one day I will. In the past year, I started doing Festivals, trying to sell my Art. It is ALOT of work, but worth it. I have met so many people with the same interests as myself.
Thank God it's Friday--Whew, long week. Finally got the truck back yesterday--the Ford place couldn't find any issues with it. Weird! Finally made it to the weekend, and I am going to try to install my new Canon printer. The HP was returned and a vow has been made to NEVER buy another HP product. After 10 hours on the phone with someone in India, it was determined that they were a bigger IDIOT than I was about this printer and could only suggest that I pay an additional 59.99 to help resolve my problems on a BRAND NEW PRINTER--WHAT!!!!! That didn't fly so I finally just told 'em that enough was enough and the printer could go straight back to India on a short boat--It was shipped off the following day. So, then I started researching other wide format printers. So far, the Canon won out. I called their technical support BEFORE I bought the printer, just to find out who I would talk to if I had issues--someone in Chesapeake Va. --YES!!! A big red check for that!! Then I called customer support to find out who I would talk to--Chesapeake Va.--Yes!!! Another big red check. After a lengthy conversation with them I decided on a Canon wide format printer. Will let you know Monday if it printed as it was supposed to (in wide format). When I called HP tech. support about my WIDE FORMAT printer not printing in WIDE FORMAT--after 10 hours of support, their brilliant deduction was that my wide format printer did not and was not supposed to print in wide format. That was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back. I should have done more research first--a little too late for that. And, by the way, they wouldn't post my review on the HP web site--wonder why :) Goes ta show ya--reviews don't tell you everything--only what the Mfg. allows.
On a lighter note--the freebie drawing on my website http://venusbluesarthideaway is Sunday--don't forget to come by and leave a comment to be eligible for the Freebie--"Eyes of a Clown" print.
I live in Louisiana with my husband, 4 dogs, 5 cats, 4 horses, 2 birds and 1 sugar glider. I am an animal lover and maker of things. I work in construction full time and dabble in Art in my spare time. I like to find old, rusty things and give them new life. There is so much untold history in these objects. Whose hands touched them, used them. They have the patina of time, Rust. Which is one of my favorite colors!
I love to watch a cat sleep, a puppy run and am a self proclaimed chocolate freak. I hate crowds and prefer the simpler things in life. I grew up in the mountains of Maryland and now live in the lowlands of Louisiana. I am finding my way through life, one experiment and adventure at a time.
One who claims that he knows about it Tells me the earth is a vale of sin; But I and the bees, and the birds we doubt it, And think it a world worth living in. ------ Whatever you want, if you wish for it long, With constant yearning and ceaseless desire, If your wish soars upward on wings so strong That they never grow languid, never tire, Why, over the storm cloud and out of the dark It will come flying some day to you, As the dove with the olive branch flew to the ark, And the wish you've been dreaming, it will come true.
I paint mixed-media angels on canvas and ceramic tile. If you see an angel in my gallery that you like and would like to purchase,visit me at my website on the link below. I also customize. If you would like a certain size, hair color, eye color or back-ground color I can also do that-just leave me a comment on the website or blog and we can make arrangements.

My Favorite Quote " Animals aren't your whole life, but they make your life whole"
My name is Faye and I live in La. I share my home with my husband Lewis and a myriad of creatures, I call them my "kids". Starting with the pooches, there is Shay--she came from the pound and is a toy Rat Terrier, Archie: Don't really know what Archie is. He come From McDonald's. Hence the name Archie (for the Golden Arches)Then there is Henry: We found Henry on a bridge last year. He had been hit by a car and left there. Then there is Big John and Lenore, they were our last two foundlings. They came from the site that we are currently working on. Big John is a Great Pyraneese and Lenore is an Australian Sheppard. They both had health issues, but are on the way to a full recovery. Next is the Felines. There is Katie and Sebastion (found him at the Dam), and Honey and Scaredy Cat and Josey (all rescued as kittens at different times--not from the same litter. Then there is Phoenix and Lizzie. Phoenix is an Amazon Parrot. He has been with me for about 20 years and Lizzie is a Cockatiel. I have had her for about 13 Years, and then there' s the Sugar Gliders:Apple, Blossom and Zorro. Oh, yes--last but not least are my horses. There is Savanna--a quarter horse that I got when she was just a foal, Zoey is a paint and has the kindest eyes, Ringo is the baby of the group. She is part Draft and part Thorough Bred and such a delight--the baby in her still shines, and then there is Lacy. She is my rescue horse. She is a small mustang who has really come out of her shell since we took her in. I love them all--every one. In my spare time, I love to create--it really doesn't matter what it is. Painting is my Favorite Thing, but Salvage Art and Jewelry Design rank right up there. Would love to do it full time but it doesn't quite pay the bills. Maybe one day :)
"You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. "
