Colorful pillows

This is a post about some of my products on Zazzle. First I want to share my new phone case which I love. It is so bright, with vivid color! Here’s a detail of it. The great thing about zazzle is you can customize things. So if you want to add words or move the image around you can do that. I recently had someone request a product with one of my designs on it.

Painting Inspired by Niki de Saint Phalle Art

Big Girl Wings

A number of years ago I discovered the art of Niki de Saint Phalle, a French-Swiss painter and sculptor. She created some colorful, full figured sculptures which I love! Here’s an example: I had created a few drawings in my sketchbooks over the years inspired by her work. Then recently I did this painting and I’m pretty sure it was inspired by Niki’s art and my other painting titled She Wanted the Rainbow So She Put Up with the Rain.…

Spirit Bear Painting

I love it when the unexpected appears in my paintings. This spirit bear showed up as I was painting and I love that he did! There is much symbolism in this piece and it feels very special. The sacred spirit bear is the keeper of dreams and memory. I like that the symbols float above him as if the dreams and memories are floating through time and space. I really like the night sky with the stars and moon too!…

"Meet Me at the Guardian Waters" Acrylic Painting

I know that snorkeling with the fish down in Baja inspired my new painting, “Meet Me at the Guardian Waters”. I’ve been learning to snorkel for the past 2 years. We snorkeled in the Sea of Cortez when we camped for a few days down in Baja this year.  Although I’ve only been snorkeling a few times, I love being in the water and seeing underwater sea life. We’ve seen the most beautiful fish. Colorful ones, in lots of different sizes…

These starry lanterns seem to have made their way into one of my paintings, hanging in the branches of whimsical trees.…

Painting and Making Whimsical Recycled Garden Art

One way to bring a little color into your home is to make colorful garden planters using paint and recycled washing machine drums. I painted the one above last year. It’s great for cactus because they don’t need much water. I made a bright flower motif one this year. I’ll show you the progression of one I decorated with a cactus design below. I started with an empty washing machine drum that I cleaned up to look like this. Next…
