Hiding in the Flat File

heart painting Bursting with Love oil painting

“Bursting with Love”, 8 x 8″ oil on canvas, $175

 

My husband and I have been super busy the last month or so! We spent the first week of June recording our first album of music for our group, Sunlight. We spent my husband’s birthday in Silver City, NM, our favorite small New Mexico town. After this most recent trip we have decided once and for all, we are moving to Silver City as soon as possible!

First, we have to get our house in Albuquerque ready to rent. This means we have a LOT of work to do! We have been working on cleaning STUFF out and paring down to a minimum so we don’t have as much to move when the time comes. Now that the boys are grown and gone, we are ready to live in a smaller house. Time for a little downsizing!

Below, you can see just a FEW of the drawings and paintings I have rediscovered while cleaning out my flat file. There are some real gems in there that I had all but forgotten about! You will find more posted on my Facebook art page.

pencil drawing native american Quanah Parker

“Quanah Parker”, 8 x 10″ pencil on paper, $200. This is a one of a kind piece, there were never any prints made of this image. This one was drawn way back in 1992!

On top of all that, I have a featured artist show coming up in July at High Desert Art & Frame here in Albuquerque. Needless to say, I have spent a LOT of time in my studio painting! Above is just one of the many paintings I will be showing. The show is entitled “All About Love” and revolves around my heart paintings, just about every painting in the show will either have a heart in it, or have a love related title.

“Hand Prints”, 14 x 19″ watercolor and pastel on paper, $125. This one was part of my petroglyph series

Also, Aaron and I will be playing a Sunlight show tomorrow evening at The Cube BBQ on Central near University. We have lots of new songs to share! If you aren’t local, we are shooting for July/August as a release date for our first CD! πŸ™‚

The End Draws Near….

The end of the year that is! What? Did you think this post was going to be all about the end of the world? LOL. Honestly, I don’t believe all that mumbo jumbo about the end of the Mayan calendar being the end of the world! I DO however believe there is a shift coming, a shift in consciousness, a shift in the way people act, feel and think. I can feel it coming, the “Age of Aquarius”. It’s not something that will come on a specific DAY, it has been slowly coming over decades and will continue to slowly shift over the coming decades. Who REALLY knows the future anyway? Not I! I won’t claim any special knowledge, all I can really say is that I FEEL it. I FEEL the love growing, I FEEL the change in the air!

As far as my personal and professional life goes, there is a LOT of change coming. I have already experienced TONS of change in this past year and it will continue into 2013. I haven’t figured it all out just yet, but I promise to keep you all informed. I do have to apologize for the LONG gap in between posts this last month or so. Honestly, I cannot even remember the last time I wrote a blog post. It’s been way TOO LONG!

December is a crazy month for us this year. On top of Christmas and all the usual busyness that comes with the holidays, our oldest son is getting married on December 29th! We have agreed to help with a few things, which translates to, I am baking the wedding cake/s! Plus, we have some shopping to do for the groom and his best men (his two younger brothers) for the clothes they will be wearing for the wedding.

This week is busy because my husband and I are working on recording a Christmas song, “Silent Night”, to release in time for this Christmas. Our folk group, New Mexico Sunshine, is getting ready to play a show at our local main library for their “lunchtime at the library” series on 12/12/12 at 12:00 noon.

Also, I am offering 25% off ALL purchases in my Etsy shop until This Friday, Nov. 30th. Just enter the coupon code: cybermonday when you check out.

Needless to say, it’s going to be a crazy busy month! I hope to get back to some semblance of a normal routine after the New Year. If I don’t get back here before that, may you all have a Happy Holidays (no matter what holiday you celebrate) and a very happy New Year!
