Sew Awesome!

Several years ago, I licensed some my work to Hancock Fabrics. They produced 10 different designs with my cats, ladies, TVs and radio patterns. I have been collecting images of what people have made with it and I am blown away by the TALENT of these artists! I can sew a little, but I don't have the skills to make anything but a curtain or a simple pillow. I am currently looking to license my newer work for more fabric!

Who's for Dinner?

"Who's for Dinner"
16x20 Acrylic on Canvas
I've had this oval canvas hanging in my studio for YEARS! I was sketching a few months ago and I came up with this one... my shifty little owl is trying to decide what to hunt for today. Living in South Louisiana, I have seen nature at it's purest, including birds of prey snatching up cute little animals on a daily basis! It's quite gross I must say. Large birds would circle my yard when puppy Penny would go out to do her business!
So here we have "Who's for Dinner" and it is available in my Etsy Shop and in my gallery space at Aladdin's Lamp here in BR.

You can't always get what you want!

"You Can't Always Get What You Want"
Mixed Media 2009

But if you try sometimes... you get what you need!
I found these ceramic letters at a garage sale several months ago. They were intended for making your own movie titles for your home movies in the 50's & 60's! I wanted to do something special with them, but I had no idea what. So one day I was listening to the Stones as I was playing with these letters and all of a sudden I noticed that I spelled out "want" and the rest just came together. I adhered them to a piece of wood that I painted robin's egg blue and VIOLA! This piece is made completely of found and recycled objects, including the paint! I wish I had more letters... I could do this again and again. Now I have so many cool ideas... better get to those yard sales!
