This way or that way, what do you think?

I've had a lot of time to think about perspectives lately. I will share my thoughts on life perspectives later as this is an art post though. In creating an abstract there's a process of line and space and shape usage that you go through as you sort of feel your way through a piece. The image on the bottom is the way I had originally viewed the finished piece, but, on further study I'm wondering if there's a better way to hang this one. I'd like your opinion as I value you all as creative geniuses with a unique view of art. I can already see other ways of approaching this theme; isn't that the marvel of creativity? We start with one idea, and as we work it, the possibilities grow. I doodled last Sunday while listening to the talks in church, totally inspirational I might add, and have some future abstracts planned. I've found that even as I'm down on my knees in prayer in the morning little sparks of inspiration flash in my mind which can be startling as I'm not thinking of art at the time. I digress though.... :-)

Sooooooo top, middle or bottom, which way do you think this would look best?

Smiling Jack

Smiling Jack will talk no smack, he keeps on smiling, that's a fact!
I was going to say he grins from ear to ear, but that won't work, oh no my dear,
It doesn't matter, it's okay, if you need a smile he'll send one your way!

Smiling Jack is my newest listing on EBAY

I was walking on the beach one day....

 I was walking on the beach one day, and much to my surprise...
 a piece of driftwood called to me, and looked me in the eye!
I saw a familiar face on it, and picked it up to see....
if that was really Santa, looking back at me.
As you can see he surely was, so home to work we went..
So you see that he's become that friendly jolly gent!

Spreading a little love for a collector....

Whew! Finally got a word in, and a photo or two. I don't understand why, but blogger and Firefox aren't compatible anymore, so here I am on Safari. No matter, I had a collector contact me about my giveaway ornament at the PFATT Valentine Giveaway and wanted something similar. She was willing to pay so why would I I do think though, that you should stop by the giveaway because there are so many wonderful goodies, who knows, you may be a winner!

These 4 came about because of her request, in order to offer choices, and they are available if you are interested. They are reversible, a face on one side and the saying on the other. "Be Mine" and "True Love" are the sayings and these are very reasonable. If interested drop me a line.
Do I seem a bit scrambled here? Well I am, no sleep will do that to a person. My creative muse in writing has flown the coop as I lost it with the sleep I've lost all week. Thank goodness for the weekend!

Truly Lace and Lilly Lovebug

 Lilly Lovebug has moved to etsy to see if she can share her heart with someone there. She has a bit of company, tucked among the Santas and now the abstract art, but she would really rather be sharing her love with you.
Truly Lace is my favorite scent from Coty, but to my dismay they no longer make it. The colors in this piece remind me of the Victorian style label with roses and lace in shades of pinks, reds and peach, thus the name. I can see this in a totally cottage chic home, adding a touch of romance. That's not the only style this would fit into, but let your design style shine with a new abstract on your wall.
They are both available at
