We Three Santas......

 As cool as it has been today you would think that we were headed for winter again, instead of just getting ready to hit summer. It's been raining buckets, which put the kibosh on our fishing plans, so I'm painting my bathroom and finishing up Santa pieces. This Santa is made from a banana gourd, and comes bearing gifts.
 A simply primitive Santa here, made from Wallowa Lake driftwood. What's so special about Wallowa Lake? Check this out or look up Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce for more photos of a little slice of heaven here on earth. 
Another banana gourd Santa, simply sweet and ready for a new home.

Well I need to go shower and get some in town chores done and then it's back to painting my bathroom. I hope the rain takes a break so I can go cover my garden boxes and get my tomatoes ready for tonight. It's promising to be pretty chilly and they are in need of covering as well.

Butterfly Dreams

I really scored at a yard sale a couple of months ago. I found several hand crocheted vintage doilies, including this amazing butterfly designed one. This painting was done a bit differently in that I didn't layer the color, I just squeezed out color here and there on the piece and sort of moved around with my hands until I got what I wanted. I used shades of melon, and lemon yellow, turquoise and blue to create this fun and colorful theme. Abstract art is so refreshing and fun! This can be found at MothersDreamRtworks

Gourdinia the Witchy Gourd Frog on PFATT Marketplace

My gourds speak to me.... No really! Sometimes they do! Every time I looked at her gourd self I heard, "Help! I'm trapped inside this gourd and I WANT OUT!" So by magic and a lot of listening to that little voice inside the gourd, she was able to break out of her shell and show the world her most kissable face. Now I can't promise that she will turn into a lovely princess once kissed, but she sure gets a lot of attention when she's on display. Have a look see at : PFATT Marketplace

Dreaming of Sunsets Mixed Media Abstract Painting

When I started this painting I was thinking of lime green for a fresh and spring like brightness, but this has evolved into something totally unexpected and fun! I just didn't like the direction it was taking, so I put it on the easel and would walk by and think, "Hmmm, orange, it needs orange..."

As you can see from the "before" painting, it was rather bland and needed some umph! I tried orange, and then turquoise and before you know it I was brushing color here and there. I really had fun and love the end result. True to Pantone color trends, this piece should fit in with any modern home decor color theme. It comes framed and ready to hang. You can find it at my etsy shop : MothersDreamRtworks
