Why is It?

It is just the strangest phenomonon.... The pieces you love the most always seem to give receive half the reception than the ones you aren't so in love with. It always perplexes me as I feel I am a person of good taste. lol

I just love this painting and hopefully someone else will... hahahahha

Happy Monday!

"Nighty Night" would like to wish you a happy and productive week on this fine Monday morning. Mondays can be such dreaded days for so many, and for me as well many moons ago. If you are a Monday hater, please know that this condition is not forever! You may change your destiny at any point.... Remember, you can DO IT!

I did make some sweet Halloween note cards which are still available for only $5.00! These will surely make someone tickled this Fall. Have a great day!

A little Project

Call me crazy, but I swear the weather is changing here in the Northwest...This subtle change spurred some "nesting" in my pig pen of a studio. lol... What? You don't create in a beautiful, sun-filled, artist loft? naaaaaaahhhhhhh...

I've recently added some new "tricks" to the Whimsie tool bucket... GOLDEN FLUID ACRYLICS, Artist Crayons, and Water Soluable Oil Pastels... So fun, however I needed to surround myself with my tools, so a little reorganization was needed.

Here's my little process and a Whimsie hint on how to paint anything!

1. Go to Thrift store and spent $1.50

Primed pieces with KILZ

Painted with acrylics

AHA! I did it!

Almost gone...

Seems like I was just muttering this same statement about the Summer this morning, but so is this JOL Salsa Can Man Here is the first my "GREEN WHIMSIES" collection... I will be recycling some of nature's biggest nemesis (ie plastic bags, foil, cans, etc) by incorporating into my art. As many of you know these supplies are not very beautiful or easy to work with! I've been playing mad scientist experimenting with each of these, and I hope to giving new life in art versus landfills. I'm excited at the challenge and possibilities!

I get sad thinking that Summer is passing so quickly... Let's just slow everything down! Sit in the bright rays. Smell the clothes on the line. Squeeze every bit of sweetness out of the season before it's gone...POOF!
