My new love

It is Sirius radio, and for a big radio listener like me it is golden,it was easy to set up, if Photoshop was so so cooperative I would like it better. But let me introduce you to my new fun toy, my Sirius radio.

Ok, in january I need to learn Photoshop, while listening to my new friend Sirius.

Snow nuts...

We went out hiking in Christmas Florida, and I stopped in a shop and fell in love with these hand painted Santas from Russia, so naturally I looked on the internet and got the idea I want to make a hand painted Santa, so after my extensive search, I found these at Michaels, they are nutcrackers, and snowmen, but I still did have alot of fun painting them. So, guess what everyone is getting for Christmas??

Festival of the Trees in the Orlando Museum

A fuzzy picture of me in front of my JingleBulbs Palm Tree.

A picture of my sister Lili in front of the Jingle Bulb Tree. Good thing I only have 2 sisters and one in Germany or this could be one long blog.....

Windermere Postcard

I was asked by the shop that carries my hand painted ornaments, called JingleBulbs, to create a postcard for Sparkle night in Windermere Florida. It is a cute little town surrounded by 5 lakes, a suburb of Orlando.
Windermere Design is one of those wonderful stores that I have always loved to browse through. That is what made this postcard fun to do.

Painted sketchbook

My husband and I wanted to send something as a gift to a 9 year old relative. She loves to draw so we picked this sketchbook.

My new favorite art supply are these markers that paint on any surface, they are basically spray paint in a pen, they come in small fine points so they are very easy and fun to use.

And here is the painted sketchbook.

A Painting I love

The painting of the woman in the left side of the photo is a painting I grew up with, my moms painting that I have always loved. We were surrounded by paintings growing up, this was one of my favorites.

My Computer

My computer, that I learn something new on everyday.
All around and taking over the studio are the bulbs I paint for Christmas,

And of course the much needed open window so I can watch the squirells and the birds, and so the lizards can tease our very confused cat, Boris.

Artful Rakes

These were some very fun rakes that were decorated in Gatlinburg Tennessee in The Village. I loved the idea of rakes. Very fun.

My studio

When my daughter went off to college, I "borrowed" this bookshelf from her room, we had purchased it at Ikea, it fits perfectly in that tiny area, and holds all the books I use alot.

My drawing table is too big for the room but I found a little one that I can do my illustration work on (thats the blue table) it folds so I put it away when I dont need it.
