Surprise, another angel. I know....not a big shocker! I am trying to find a good crackle medium and don't seem to be having much luck. This is that Tim Holtz stuff. I don't know if it was intended for this or not. I think it is too shiny and raised. But, I still like the piece. It is a 9" by 9" gallery wrapped canvas that is 1 1/2" deep.
Probably won't be on much in the next few days. Next week is Spring Break and, we are gearing up for Sea World. The kids ask every day ( few times a day ) if it is time to go because they want to feed the dolphins. If you have ever been there they have this huge tank and if you buy a little tray of fish you can actually feed the dolphins. They get super close too. It is amazing. I am usually a nervous wreck. Trying to keep the kids from falling in. I don't know if that has ever happened to anyone.

It was a crazy weekend. I have barely had a minute to sit down to do anything let alone make anything. I was happy to steal some time today.
The theme for MMM is gold and purple. I thought it would be tough for me but it actually was not. I started with some metallic paper and added some soft purple paint, water and then some walnut ink crystals. Oh, and it is on one of those wood canvases. LOVE THEM!!!!!! It is 6" by 6".

It snowed again yesterday! We did not get alot but, the kids were sooooo happy. As soon as we got enought to start throwing snowballs, making snow angels and making a snowman, we headed outside. So Alexis did finally get to make her snowman after all. And even if he was kinda pathetic looking, they were both so proud. You can tell that they are Texas kids. They got pretty cold pretty fast. So as soon as all the fun stuff was over they were in the bath warming up. It was great fun. And look in the background.

I think that I have totally fallen in love with the 5" by 5" canvases. This is another little one that I finished today. I absolutely Love this picture. Sweet!
Well, it is now official and I can't back out. My hubby and are are going to go to Venice and Vienna for our 10 year anniversary. I figure we will probably never go again. I am looking forward to it now but, it took me some time to warm up to the idea. About seven years ago I swore to myself that I would never leave the country again. This was only after a trip to the Bahamas where I unfortunately had a very bad miscarriage. And believe me, you don't want to visit the hospital there. At least not on the island that we were on.
But it is a new day. And I think that it would be an incredible situation at this point in my life when I can look through eyes of an artist.
