About Me

My photo
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.

Joanie's Quest (Latest Pieces)

I call this piece "Joanie's Quest". It is made on an
old piece of wood flooring that was torn out of a local
college and a ceramic tile.

The heart is made out of apoxy clay that is dyed
with ink.

The metal band on the top is a piece of metal
strapping that I got from the job.

The lace is very old, I got it from a trade show.
The compas came from the dollar tree. I used
Modern Options to rust it.

Finished piece.

Sketch for my next painting.

Beginning of the painting.

These are some jewelry pendant that I am working
on. They are made from dried flowers that I dried last summer
and findings that I bought at Hobby Lobby. Some are
inlaid with old text.

All in all, I had a pretty good weekend. I managed to get a piece out and a few more started. I also helped my son move on Sunday. He is finally flying out of the nest (again). I can't say that I won't miss him, but now I can finally start on my house. He has been living in the house that we want to renovate. Now--maybe, if luck holds...........keep your fingers crossed-we can start on it. I have all of the big plans and I can see it all in my head. Just gotta get it started and see if the finished product looks like "vision" that I have for it.

  1. Just had to come by and stroll through your blog. Your art is awesome!

    I know roughly where you are from. Though now is south La., I'm originally from Union Parish.

    Now off to check out your declutter. Thank you for all the nice things you said about my post. I'm following you now too!


  2. Oh my goodness, your mixed media is simply an amazing work of art. I love all of the pieces pulled together. Your drawing is so beautiful and I can't wait to see the finished product. I have always been completely intrigued by those jewelry pieces and one day hope to learn to make them myself. Have a lovely day.

  3. You have been busy! Everything is fabulous. I especially love the jewelry. The dried flower necklaces are stunning!

    Have a lovey day. {{hugs}}
