Mysterious Object

Side of the UFO (unidentified flying object), which hopefully has crossed the Atlantic ocean by now to its destination somewhere in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. I apologize for  the slightly out of focus photo: the object being in flight, I am not able to take a second picture!

So glad it's done! This has been a long battle and I can shout  Allelluiah, my mind is already on the next one. Thought a lot of Zikette and tried to please her:)m
10" x 10" mixed media painting, hand painted papers, acrylics, self-carved stamps, commercial stamps. 
For those of you, dear visitors, interested in this sort of art, please go straight to my sis' blog .
She just finished a beautiful and touching portrait using her own papers.

Dawn In the Village

This morning, I opened my eyes and I could see a magnificent view from the window. I could not resist!  I just had to throw a coat over my nightgown, slip my shoes and go out to take pictures. It was a little before 7am.,

Misc. Sweet Nothings

Japanese maple wants to keep its fire-red leaves in the honor of Jesus' birth
There was this one flower left from summer, all alone on my run yesterday so I saw it, loved it and took it home
Just a glance at a corner of "something" (wrapping) I'm sending to sisterette, can't spoil the surprise!

Still not the best representation of this one, too red....way too blood red but anyway I went back and worked on the bottom half of the background which seemed too empty.

Almost Nothing

In fact, really nothing, busy, busy, busy..... at church, at home and with friends, in the studio, on the running path, balancing on the Bosu ball or lifting weights, driving to the jail...more later:)
