A Good Day

I am in a good space. I am feeling like things are opening up for me again. I am managing my home well, I am managing my kids well, and I am managing my art well. It is a rare place to be, and I am sure it will change tomorrow, but I am riding the wave today.

Pictured above is a new painted canvas that will be turned into stitched accessories. The copper stamping is done with a wooden stamp that was original used to stamp on fabric in the Middle East or Asia, most likely Afghanistan. I love it, and will likely need more of these. Luckily my friend Rayela sells them in her etsy store. I used acrylic paint with it, and washed it off right away.
Another painted canvas is pictured above. This one has been coated with digital ground. Once it is dry, I am going to try printing on it with my ink jet printer. I am excited to see what the results will be. This one will become stitched accessories too. Most likely card wallets since those seem to be in demand on my etsy and in my galleries.

My "Holier Than Thou" Bird print is new in my etsy store today, along with two other bird prints newly listed this week. The originals are still available too at Artist Alley in Southern Pines, NC.

This has been such a "newsy" post. I would like to be a more engaging blog writer, but I just ain't got it in me at this time of the evening. Maybe net time!

Thanks for mentioning my Etsy store, Amy! Word of mouth is the best advertising.

I really like that bird! Glad things are going well with you!
