I worked on her for a few days, but she is finally done! My first Love doll made with my own custom art fabric. Daisy Sunshine was made using my Yellow Daisy fabric design.
She is just as I imagined her, I hope you love her too!
Daisy Sunshine Hippie Love Doll 🙂
My next creativity project will be another painting! I must admit, I’ve missed my daily painting sessions. I also need to make more dolls, they are much more popular than I thought they could be. I’m so grateful to all the people who have adopted my sweet babies! It’s time for some new fabric designs as well. I have so much work to do, I guess I’d better get to it! Have a fantastic rest of your day! Please subscribe to my blog up in the upper right corner. Thank you! 🙂

“All About Love Series” giclee poster/print, 13 x 14″, available for $50
I decided after a long weekend drive to Arkansas and back (to pick up our middle son and bring him home), that it is TIME to get back to work on my art! Today, I am working on getting my latest line of prints organized. I have chosen 50 of my images, some old, some new and my plan is to get these prints out into the world. Galleries, gift shops, online shops, wherever I can. Today’s photo is of my latest poster print, a collage of my latest series, “All About Love”. All 9 images from the series are now included in one giclee poster/print. The printed size is 13 x 14″ and it is available for $50 which includes shipping. It will eventually be listed in my Etsy shop, but you can also order it directly from me by sending an email with your request to email@example.com.
I hope you are having a lovely day! Here in Albuquerque, it’s been rainy, cloudy and COOL! YAY Autumn! My second favorite season. 🙂

The whole series together, 8 paintings all together. There were originally 9 but I royally screwed up #9 and don’t know if I will fix/repaint or use that canvas for something totally different!
I’ve been working on this series off and on all summer and today is the day it is finally complete! I’m very pleased with how they turned out, but I’m still unsure if I will sell them separately or keep them together as a set. They are small canvases, 6 x 6″, so they would make a really awesome grouping if hung all together. What do you think? Should they stay together or be separated?

It’s feeling really great to be back at work, loving the feeling of the paint on the palette, then the canvas, then……. Grateful for my wonderful life…… 🙂
Here’s what I worked on today. #1 & 2 of a 9 canvas series called “All About Love”.

orange and green hearts in progress, side view
Once again dragging myself back to my easel. I don’t understand why it can be so difficult to get back to doing something I love so much. It seems I always find a distraction. Not this week darnit!
Orange heart in progress, underpainting done!
I recently purchased a nine pack of 6 x 6″ canvases. They are the 1 1/2″ deep canvas I love so much. While opening the package I began to contemplate the way they come packaged. A neat little square of 9 canvases, 3 x 3, all shrinkwrapped nice and pretty. Wouldn’t it be cool to do one piece on the nine different canvases? What do they call that I wonder? Is there a name? Two canvases together to form one painting is called a diptych, three together is called a triptych, so perhaps a niptypch? 🙂 I still haven’t decided if they will be sold as one piece or split into 9 individual paintings that could go together but don’t necessarily HAVE to go together. We’ll see once it’s done and I get a feel for them as a whole.
Green heart in progress, underpainting done!
Anyway, today’s photos are just the beginning. These are two of the nine canvases with their underpainting done, but much more progress to come. Stay tuned for more progress pics coming soon! (After I do a bit more painting that is!)

It’s been a busy month and a several weeks since I’ve posted one of my weekly art auctions. To make up for the lag time between auctions, I’m listing a popular painting. With everyone who has shown love to this painting, I’m surprised I still have it. So as another big THANK YOU to my fans out there, I’m starting this sweetheart out at the regular $9.99 bid, quite the deal! 🙂 Happy bidding!
Love Flows, 6 x 6" oil on canvas, starting bid $9.99
Mini Love 2, 5 x 6" oil on canvas, $40
Finished up three paintings I have been working on today. They are all small canvases, 2 – 5 x 6″ and 1 – 4 x 5″. Recycled supplies, 3 old yard sale frames, stretched with canvas scraps I’ve been holding on to. Feels good to use some of the stuff I’ve been carting around.
Mini Love 3, 5 x 6" oil on canvas, $40
I still have one more 5 x 6″ recycled canvas and a new 6 x 6″ canvas to use before I start on the next recycled project. I have 11 pre-cut cutting boards, also purchased at a yard sale, that I plan to paint next. I cannot throw anything away, especially if it’s made of wood or I can stretch canvas over it!
Mini Love 1, 4 x 5" oil on canvas, SOLD!
