Okay, if you haven't tried painting an abstract....you just have to. It is very freeing and not to mention SO MUCH FUN! Sometimes it can be frustrating trying to get a painting "just right." With an abstract, it seems as if you enter into a different realm. It is magical to see the colors and textures work together. There is an infinite number of "unconventional" tools that you can use which can take the painting to another level. I love this new world and plan to visit often! Check out this painting on Etsy in my store "Tangled". Here's the link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/162374398/mini-abstract-mixed-media-painting-on-a?ref=shop_home_active
These are 2 adorable clay frogs that my kids created in their art class at school.

Another Work in Progress
Cloth and Clay Doll
This is the very first doll I created using cloth and paper clay. Check out Gritty Jane's Workshops !
The Cotton Candy Tree
I just wanted to do something a little different than my other paintings. A conversation between my son and daughter about cotton candy inspired this painting. I think the colors are fun and the trunk is mesmerizing.
This is my Christmas angel who was sold to someone in Hawaii. 70 degree weather sounds lovely right now !
Mermaid Blowing Bubbles
Each of her little scales were decoupaged on individually.
