Today, while updating my last post, I caught a Crayola commercial using a song by "The Unicorns", which is a band that I don't think is around anymore...under that name anyways, but I loved them just the same. I was so proud of that selection! The commercial had my undivided attention. You should totally look them up on Wikipedia and try to get some downloads of them.
ART Show update:
I have finished my two paintings for the Bakersfield Museum of Art Visual Arts Festival. Whew - mouthful. I have to coat them up and make them all shiny and then sit on them for a month or so until I can submit them. That will be the hard part. I don't want to wait. I am satisfied with them though. I might do some more pics of them...but I don't want to spoil all of the surprises.
My big plan this year is to enter at least 10 Art shows... most online, some in person. I am 3 months behind already so I better get a crackin.
See how pretty that Yellow is? Very dainty and lovely, but also substantial enough to create a very dramatic look. Yummy. Make sure to stop in and support Smitherine Designs! I am adding these pieces to my wish list right now.

Most paintings in the shop are 6"x 4" acrylic on paper, and are framed and matted in a fantastic deep Black frame, which is an excellent finishing touch, as it makes the piece ready for you! All you have to do is hang it up! There are also a few paintings on canvas and wood that are very awe - striking.
I especially like the second painting, titled, "Say Uncle". I had a nightmare once about that giant white rabbit from the skittles commercial. He was singing and trying to eat my stomach. I climbed up on the roof to get away from him but that punk rabbit jumped up after me. Anyway, I painted a squirrel caught in the act of decapitating that rabbit, which made me feel a lot better.

Fantastic Pictures too, huh? What better way to display feathered accessories than where they live in the wild? This truly is a shop that is a "Bud ready to bloom!" Buy a pair of earrings from lilheart today.

Please be sure to check out the shop for a larger image of that illustration. My little blog pic doesn't do it justice. I think I was drawn to it (pardon the pun) because I like repetitious patterns...and drawrings too. The cubby buddie reminds me of a robot...which we all know I have a thing for too. His name is Hiroshi, although I would call him Herman for short.
Monday - Made my day Mondays: Interesting things have been happening since I have been on the road. I will try to lighten those Monday moods with something funny that might have happened to me or in my area that weekend.
Wednesday - When will I sell something Wednesdays: Features Etsy sellers that are eagerly awaiting their first sale!! Gives you a chance to look at the undiscovered and maybe even give them that first boost!
Friday - Fine Art Friday: I want to get back into painting so I would like to take Fridays and feature Etsy artists that paint and collage and all that fun stuff...Most of which I would like to have less than 50 sales or so but I wont discriminate if I fall in love with the art!
Well... as it is Wednesday, I think I will poke around on Etsy to see what Newbies I can find!

The theme is "roots" so I have quite a bit planned for this one. The background is the my poor attempt at the Fibonacci spiral...what part of it will fit on a square canvas at least. I also plan do do a bunch of perfect square numbers in the borders. I have some coral collage cut out for the sides and for the birdies mouth. I have to add color to his eye, the flower pots and some more texture to his body today. I hope to finish up in a week or so...working only a few hours per day. I am sure that I will get to a point where I don't like it this week sometime and put it in painting time out for a week or so. I am not sure if I like it yet. We will see what Day 2 brings.
Get in there while they are free! (Not to mention help add some color to that eyesore on my page!)
I will update later on today with some pics of my painting for the art show, as well as a new line of necklaces that I am working on.

I love that wrist cuff. I am drawn not only to the red flowers, but also to the plaid pattern underneath. With the combination in colors, the cuff could be versatile and worn with lots of things. I like this necklace because it is so unique. The combination of cloth, beads and chain is very cute and classy looking. Like vintage, yet chic. For many many more pretty things, please check out the creations of prettypennydesigns!
In case all of you (any of you) out there were wanting a fun and fantastic story about why I love these two images in particular, here you are: I, myself have partaken in the drunk waffles outing many a times. Of course that was in KY where Waffle House if king (2 years in Iowa without Waffle House was like being in Hell without water). I actually ate there one time and a friend offered to buy my whole dinner (after I had eaten it) if I chug the Tabasco. You know how that one ends. As for the Vespa image...well, I think that bicycles are neato and I always dreamt of someday moving to the Canary Islands and opening a Vespa rental shop. *sigh*
See what I mean? They are beautiful! Stop on in to see what fantastic piece might interest you!

Aint he cute? He spent a good deal of time trying to sneak into the front seat. At 40 lbs, he was rather hard to push away when he was fighting me for attention. When he finally lost the battle, he would usually end up like the last image, where he put his huge head on the center console. The top picture is a good representation of every gas station along the way. It was so hot outside and we had all of our belongings in the car, so my BF and I would take turns going in to the gas station or rest stop so someone could remain in the air conditioned car with Rambo. This was fine, because Rambo could then pretend that he was driving.

Check out what feralgirl has to say about her items straight from her Etsy profile: "My love and passion is for making high quality, durable goods. I am so sick of all the mass produced crap that just ends up in a bin at a thrift store. My products get better with age- whether it is a tee shirt that becomes a soft favorite or a handbag that ages to a perfect patina.I want my products to live a full and happy life!!I believe in using leather because, as we all know, if people are going to continue to EAT the cow..there will always be leather.And I think it is only wise not to let such a useful by-product go to waste." Here-Here! Enjoy Feral Empire!
