Painting crows.



Can I keep painting crows?

I mean, do you paint what you like? Do you HAVE to paint other stuff? Right now I'm painting crows. 
Maybe soon I'll start painting sheep or bunnies. But now I'm in the mood for the black birds.


The words on the bottom say:
'to be unable to forget, even in one's dreams'

More to come!
Thanks for stopping by.

Latest crow



The latest crow…

Yesterday I painted this crow. I like him. I even signed my name.
Crows are cool. I want a t shirt that says that.
(I'm always designing my own t shirt line)
There are many spiritual ideas associated with the crow.
 I like "personal transformation and prophetic insight".

Lyania Vanzant, the motivational speaker was on Oprah's Own. She was talking about having a "vision", as in a goal. The following is a quote from her, (loosely)  remembered.  :)

'You NEED a vision. A vision will pull you forward.
If you don't have a vision, you will be stuck in what you know, what you've already seen. 
A vision that walks with you, sleeps with you, moves with you, 
a vision you can tap into ~ will PULL you forward.'

This is what art and the studio upstairs is to me. It's a vision. 
I love what she says. If you don't have a vision, you just continue doing what your doing.

 For me, it's small baby steps. It's a faded dream that I continue to brush off and breathe live into. 

I think I'm going to name the crow painting "Vision". 


Grizzly has a vision. I took this picture yesterday. I laid next to him and said
"kitty". He immediately said "WHERE?" This is his vision.
 Keeping a sharp eye out for trespassing kitty's.
:)
Looking at this photo I realize I need to put on my makeup.

Girl with the tiger.


Girl With The Tiger

The series of paintings of Girl's with their "Spirt Guide Animals" is continuing. I'm loving this class and the women are doing remarkable work! This is not an easy class. 
These ladies grab ahold of each project and jump right in. NO FEAR! I love it. 
The next class at Paper Niche will be April 19th, Saturday, from 10:00 to 2:00 PM. 
The painting for this class is a Pakistan woman and her "guide" ~  a white tiger. 
Once again the tiger and the girl  have the same eyes, furthering their spirt connection.
Hope you can make it!
Remember, this class has a limit of 12 students. :)




I love this picture I found in the parking lot. There is just something about children's art. 
The back has "I love summer" written on it. 
Adorable.
