Finished! And Thank you...

"Magicland" 7.5x10 inch print now available at ETSY
Miraculously, I was able to finish this painting today -- in no small part due to my fiance, Christophe, who took care of Annabelle all day so that I could "rest" (oops... I didn't quite manage that part of the bargain) . But I'm so happy that this piece is finished because I really love it. I will always cherish this image because of the circumstances in which it was created -- and the colors and little creatures make me happy. After looking at it again, I decided to rename it "Magicland."
I also want to say THANK YOU to everyone who sent me congratulations here on the blog. I feel so blessed to have such nice readers out there in the world sending us happy thoughts. It means so much to me. :)

Wedding Day

Well... it seems that baby Nicolas is taking his own sweet time to arrive. Today is is official due date, and he seems to be in no hurry to be born. This is actually just fine with me as I have an awful cold. The good news is that my doctor gave me some fabulous cough medicine that really has inpired me to be creative (don't even think too much about the contents of this medicine -- I'm trying not to). I was even able to finish a brand new painting over the weekend. This one is called "Wedding Day," and Jan over at Poppytalk will likely be running a little piece on its creation in the next few weeks. I made the whole process into a photoshoot and explained a lot about the way I create my work. I will be sure to post a link to Poppytalk if/when the piece comes out. In the meantime, this original painting is available on my website at and 8x10 prints are for sale now on ETSY.

Have a fabulous Monday! xxoo

PS -- I am also part of this month's lovely "Home Sweet Home" marketplace on Poppytalk. Lots of cute houseware treats there!

Almost Here...

"Little Star" 8x10 print on velvet fine art paper. Available on ETSY with or without personalization. :)
Well, I've finally completed a painting for my baby-t0-be -- who appears to be about to arrive any day or minute now. The doctor said that "the process has begun." A tad vague, but I am packing my bag for the hospital. We won't be going there until I get clearer signals, but it's nice to know that things are in motion and that we'll be meeting baby Nicolas soon. I can't wait!
I promise to be up and blogging again as soon as time & strength permit. Big hugs until then, and wish me luck...
