Just some of the many items that have been recently added to my Etsy Shop.  Metal, glass, shell - all one of a kind jewelry piece. - Over 90 items.

It's been awhile.......

It has been awhile since I entered a new blog.  A lot has happened in the last 8 months.  I moved again for one! I went farther north on the California coast.  We really love where we are at!  I have also finished my calendar and moved onto making jewelry so my 2014 calendar paintings have been sent off to the publisher and my 2013 Butterfly Note Nook Calendar is now available:

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.......

Started Painting My 2014 Calendar

Now that I am up on the coast my paint is taking it's time to dry.  Something I had not experienced in Tuolumne where the air is much dryer.  Before I would have to paint fast so my layers would not set up before I would finish one.  Another switch, for my 2014 calendar I have decided to paint more than one butterfly per image and not have such a strong focal flower as in the past.  Something different.  I try and switch it up a bit each year and this will be my 11th calendar for Lang / Avalanche Publishing.

My Kitchen Remodel

I finally got around to taking some after photos of my kitchen remodel.  I repainted the cupboards, poured a concrete countertop, did a slate and stone backsplash, textured and repainted walls, I also put up wainscoating but it is on the wall to the side and behind me (no photos) & last but not least I put down a faux slate tile floor.  Whew!

From visual references to final product. Next step after painting the butterflies I will start choosing floral and decorative elements for my 2013 calendar.
