working on this doll


I had been working on this big doll . She is painted on wood and cut out . I got distracted and worked on cards today instead ...... and then .... I caught her looking at me ! In the shadows ... When will you finish me ? When will you make my arms and legs ?

[ if you have time and want to ] ... please click on the images . Enlarged you can see more detail .

This is another clay lady teapot that I made . I took a photo and made a greeting card of it .

The Beverly Kaye Gallery

Take a look at Beverly Kaye's blog . She wrote about ME ! She is the lady who encouraged me to be true to my desire to PAINT from my SOUL . I had spent so many years painting for 'gift stores' ...which made me unhappy. She supported me and encouraged me ... and I will always be grateful to her for this . and along the way she became a very dear friend .

Friends cherish each other's hopes.
They are kind to each other's dreams .

her blog ..... http://beverlykayegallery.blogspot.com/
and some of my paintings are on her website
http://artbrut.com/

Her blog is new . . . I think this will be a very interesting blog !

Romans chapter 8 verses 38 & 39

Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow , or where we are -
high above the sky or in the deepest ocean -
nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God
demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us .

Carnival Art painting

I am feeling just a little better . Still tired though.
and feeling dark . so I am back into carnival freaks.
maybe because my head feels like this girl's head.
and maybe because my cousin Karen gave me a new book on freaks. Did you ever see the movie "Freaks" ?
It's a classic . I also watched "Carnival of Souls ' for the thousandth time this week . Click to enlarge . I might have to go back in to this .... fix up some things ... but I'm TOO TIRED . What's wrong with me ? Is this a type of March flu ? Or is it because sales are slow now ? or is it because my house is a mess and I'm fat .

I think I've been working too hard . trying to paint a masterpiece [ ha ha ] See ya soon

Heart Song ....a heart that bleeds forgiveness


I painted this a few weeks ago but had
no title .
Beverly Kaye called it
Heart Song.
and now I have found a beautiful
song with beautiful
words.[ by Jeremy Camp]
I think this is so perfect for this painting , the words jumped out at me

Sometimes it TAKES time for me to figure out what my paintings are saying .
I am taking one line from the song ...... A heart that bleeds forgiveness. I found this on http://blueyeduckstudios.blogspot.com/
the words will bless and encourage you .
