Paintings - Year in Review

I didn't manage to post all 12 paintings from last year and just realized it.

Here they are:

The Rainbow Connection

Last year, you may recall, I challenged myself to do one painting each month. I managed to get through the year with varying degrees of artistic success. This year, my personal challenge is to record one song a month and post it. I've accomplished my January goal and here it is:

When I was 6 or 7, I was in The Sound of Music at the Fiesta Dinner Playhouse in San Antonio, Texas. I was Gretl. After the shows, Captain Von Trapp, Maria and I would go the theater bar and I remember singing The Rainbow Connection with them.

The Muppet Movie is one of the most influential movies in my life. I know it sounds silly, but at a very young age the idea of moving to Hollywood to make millions of people happy really resonated with me and has influenced my life choices.

Be happy. Sing. I hope you enjoy it.

Pug (Painting) For Sale! (sort of)

A good friend of mine has a pug named Zuul. (She also has a pug named Vinz, but I'm not talking about him right now.) I decided to paint Zuul and I liked the result well enough that I've put the painting on Zazzle. Right now you might only be able to get it on a shopping tote. I think I've added in the option to get it on a shirt. Zazzle has all sorts of items, but I can't quite figure out if my painting is currently limited or if you could get it on a mug or phone case or whatever else they sell.

If you want to buy something besides a tote with Zuul on it, let me know and I'll go into the shop and set it up for you on the other item.

Here's the link:

Wire-Edged Ribbon, Bow Tutorial

Another bow tutorial.

When I was in high school, I worked in a craft store and had to learn how to make this kind of bow. People would come into the store, select their ribbon and someone on staff had to be able to make the bow for them.
