detroit artist's market

Wow, it sure has been quiet here.  Well, I was asked to be in a show!  I posted about it HERE!!!

Here's a sampling.

Wow, I can't believe it.  I haven't put a brush to any surface since July.  JULY!  How in the world did that happen...  Well, it is good to be back.  Great even.  I can't really go beyond great, because the painting itself wasn't so great.  It is very apparent that I am out of practice.  And I have to admit, I never really took too much stock in the whole you have to paint every day to keep limber thing.  But maybe that's because I WAS painting every day.  Or almost every day.  Or once a week, maybe...  In any case, I was painting quite a bit more frequently than ten months.  Wow.  TEN MONTHS.  I still can't believe it...

So what have I been doing, you ask?  Well, even if you didn't ask, I'll tell you anyway.  I have been writing a cookbook.  

Random?  Yes.  

But not so much if you think about it.  My son has life threatening allergies, and after having to cook three meals a day, every day, I have developed several tricks of the trade I guess you can say.  All while amassing a nice little collection of recipes...  If this interests you, please check out my other blog, mama makes from scratch (  It has recipes, crafts, and really bloggy type stuff....  

I have also been making bears.  Teddy bears.  That fit in the palm of your hand...  

Random, yes.

one no. six


I don't have much to say about this one.  It's a blueberry.  From behind.

one no. five


Well.....  here is yet another blueberry... I don't really have anything to say about this one that would be any different from the last one.  Or the one before that.  In my own defense, my mind has been on other things. My daughter has a cold and my dog has to go see a shrink....   But just as I was about to apologize for being so monotonous with my paintings (just a note to remind you that I am following a dream idea with all of these blueberries), I received a lovely message complimenting me on them!  It really doesn't get any better than that..  I will keep on keepin on then.......

one no. four


Well this is really starting to shape up into a pretty interesting display.  I still need about 6 more and then I'll be happy..

I have discovered, incidentally, that if there is even one fly buzzing around in the room, I can't help but feel like it's landing on me every 3 seconds.  And that it called it's friends over to crawl on my legs and burrow in my hair.  I'm just really glad that this one didn't take me that long to paint.......

in the pink


What can I say about this one..................

For some reason, it really looks way better in person.  And the 95 degree heat was really pounding on my back so that I could smell my skin while painting.  And there were two flies dive bombing my head.  So actually, between the heat, the skin burning smell, and the kamikaze flies......

Not bad.  Not bad at all.

one no. three


The series continues...  I really don't know what the deal is though, about these photos.  They are really quite lousy.  I just can't seem to find the right spot to photograph the final paintings........
