Some artist have one muse,
and some have more then one.
I happen to be lucky enough to
have at least 3 muses.
The one within me.
Muse number 2, aka my husband.
And, muse number 3, a good friend who I met 20
years ago while living in TX.
 A year ago when I started painting Rooster's, 

muse #3 put a little bug in my ear
about possibly of painting the
mythical bird, the Phoenix.
Apparently, these things take a while to
marinate with muse #1.
The marinating however, has definitely taken hold,
as there are many more of these to come.
This first one is for you Jason.
Thank you for your insightful input.
I appreciate your support and encouragement.

As always, thank you for letting me share my art with you. Cheers!

30 Days of Painting

Collage of Sept 2013 Paintings
Click for a Closer Look at each one

As some of you know, 
there was a painting challenge out there
to paint 30 paintings in 30 days of Sept. 
Since the goal was to get you to paint on a daily basis,
due to my slow painting style, 
My goal was 30 days of painting instead. 
I will admit it here and now,
I painted 25 of the 30 days. 
For me, that is a pretty darn successful month.  
I did manage to complete 4 paintings in that time.
It was almost 5!
If I had painted those 5 missed days it would have been. 
For me, the best part about looking at this collage
is that all the paintings came out of 
intuitive painting.
Meaning when I started each one I really
had no clue what I was going to paint.
I just set out my favorite colors and started painting.
Which I consider a FABulous thing.
It means my creative mojo has returned. 

Please feel free to click on the picture for a closer
look at each painting.
Thanks for letting me share my art with you.
