my etsy store

Well, friends have been urging me to do this for years and I finally decided to give it a try.  My bread and butter item are small tin paintings/collages that sell for $20.  I thought these would be perfect for an etsy store.  My little paintings are all original and so fun for me to create.  I decided to call my shop Saddle Up Sunshine after the painting from my last post.  It feels like a good fit. See what you think- click here.  Feedback welcome- it's a learning experience.
Happy Day to you all-


Saddle Up Sunshine

When my daughter, Camille, saw this new painting she titled it "Saddle Up Sunshine."  That made me smile and I think it's a perfect, happy, title for a piece I love, but don't understand yet.


3rd Annual Valentines for Empty Bowls

For the past 3 years I have teamed up with BookWorks to offer a fundraiser for the parent organization that facilitates Empty Bowls.  Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger and was created by The Imagine Render Group.  I call my fundraiser Valentines All Around- I donate my time, BookWorks donates the space, everyone who attends donates $25 and we spend a day making Valentines to send to our families and friends.  All money collected goes directly to The Imagine Render Group.   From the fun of creating a special Valentine to the fun of receiving a handmade Valentine in your mailbox- it's Valentines All Around!

Here are a few photos from our day Feb 1.
