Random Joy...


('A Fairy's Dream'...today's work in progress.)


I am so very thankful that I continue to feel inspired to paint and draw...




My Bee Balm is in bloom! These flowers always make me smile. They kind of look like little court jesture hats, don't they? I also finally found some time to frame some photographs from some lovely photographers...

(Northern California Windmill by Denise Andrade)


I did an art exchange awhile back with Denise...and chose this print of hers. It is so hauntingly nostalgic...and it took me awhile to think of how I wanted to frame it. I took this old window and made a little shelf on it with crown moulding...added flowers...and a starfish, of course...:-)

(Click to see these wonderful prints larger.)

Then there are these prints of Maddie's. I became completely enamoured with her work awhile ago...they just drawn you into the story...I simply matted and framed them...then layered the frames over a vintage window screen. These two framing projects totally made me love my livingroom again...:-)

And then there's these...



And last by not least...My sweet Cootsie...feeling his joy...



Whew! That felt good. It's been pretty heavy around here lately...and it was nice to just revel in a little capricious fun...

Hope you are having a wonderful evening...

Thank you for sharing your moments. It felt good for me too. :) And I've never seen Bee Balm before. That is a plant to make you smile!

Fabulous artwork! Again!
I absolutely adore what you've done with the window frame - that is really neat.
