“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

How is it Saturday already?
The week really flew by for me!
We're only just getting monsoon-ish activity here...
unlike Tucson, where it seems to rain constantly.

Since it's been a while away from here for me,
I want to show you what I've made these passed few months...

All of these are acrylic on canvas
with the exception of the last one..
she's paper mache, pipe cleaners, clay and plastic tubing.

I know I have other pieces but either I've not photographed them 
before they sold
I'm too tired to remember them at the moment!

currently, I am suffering with a bit of an 'artists block' I guess.
Cannot concentrate and I'm VERY distracted...
it's not too bad of a feeling in a way:-)
Hopefully I'll get back to painting soon.

the weekend is here and that means no homeschool and we get to
make our Halloween plans!
I'm hoping to start Haunted Humpday very soon..
are you as excited as I am!?

Have a wonderful weekend!!

I'm back!

I know it's been a while
but I'm really excited to get back to visiting here regularly.
Hope you've been healthy and happy.

I'm getting everything prepared for the upcoming season...
stories, crafts, giveaways,
& recipes...

I wanted to share this lovely piece of artwork
that will soon be gracing my wall!

It's titled
 "Hello Motherf*cker"
It's oil, paint marker and ink 
on a spray painted zinc plate.
 I can't wait to get her!!!!!

The creator of this amazing piece is a very talented artist that
I had the good fortune of finding on Instagram..
This guy is Awesome!!!
His name is 

His work is both fun and creepy..my favorite type of everything.
He will use anything as a canvas ..
as he puts it:
 "...Everything is potentially artwork.It's like energy at rest."

Below is a small sample of his work...
from toe tags to pumpkins.

(The bull-rabbits of the apocalypse)

(Tending the electrolotus)


(stick to the devil you know)

(I'd rather be alone anyway)


If you get a chance, go take a look at his work..it's very inspiring.
If you happen to inquire about one of his pieces, you'll find that
he's very sweet and personable.

That's it for tonight...
I hope you have a magical weekend!
see you soon!!
