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.

Starting Again..........


I have finally finished my Poe piece and am happy with it.  Took alot  longer than I anticipated.  I have entered it in "Quoth the Ravens" blog challenge.  This will e the first piece that I have ever submitted and am not even sure that I have done it correctly.  Live and learn--right??  The piece should be "dark" or "Halloweenish" and be based on Poe's life or works.......so, here I go. 

I have to admit, it has taken me a while to get back in the swing of things but I am back now to full-speed ahead.  I have so many ideas and so many projects started--Where to begin?  My son gave me some beautiful leather when I went home last fall and I have been really racking my brain trying to decide what to make with it.  I have finally figured it out.  I am going to attemp a fringe purse and a messenger bag.Sewing is not really my forte, but I am going to give it a shot. Here are the finished photos of the "Poe" piece.  I have also finished a mixed media and another one almost complete.  I will add photos of those.

This piece took me longer to do because it was actually "of" someone. Usually I just let my brush take me as it will.............

I have ideas and drawings for about 5 other pieces.  One is of Boudica--a warrior woman, one is "The Witch of November".  If you ever heard the song "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgeral", "it was the witch of November came early", and I want to do a Marie Laveau  piece, and one that I am really excited about is a Janice Joplin piece--Bobby McGee.  I love this line "I'll trade all of my tomorrows for one single yesterday--................Don't you love it.  I have all kinds of jewelry planned! Oh, where is the time???????

The weather here is finally breaking off and we are getting some gorgous days.  I am thinking that that is the reason for my inspiration.  No matter I guess.  I am just glad it's back.


Keep Creating..................
