A very dear friend of mine passed away yesterday.  His name was Nomti.  He was a 17 year old Siamese cat with diabetes who loved popcorn.  He would always sleep with me when I lived with some friends of mine, who were his owners.  And even though he didn’t technically belong to me, I always felt that there was a special connection between us.  He was my buddy.  I loved him so much that I still have yet to stop crying.  Here is some art I was inspired to make in his memory.

Rest in peace Nomti.  ❤



I guess this is a banner/self portrait thingy

Hello again friends!  I wanted to share with you an image I made today.  I was inspired  by someone named Katwise.  I love her art and wacky self and the banner she has on her site.  So I made one of my own!  In my last post I mentioned that life for me is changing, and so will my art.  This is a direct result.  It’s fun, right?  I love it!


Inner Reaching

When I go to Goodwill I look for canvases that I can use to practice my painting on.  I was given some gesso as a gift(thank you R.L.!) and I just use it to cover the old painting.  Recently I found a canvas that had been preprinted that was 30″ by 38″ and I instantly knew what I wanted to put on it.  So I bought it and brought it home.  It is a good and common practice to create “rough drafts” of art before one starts on the actual product, so I made this!  I have not yet started on the actual painting but this collage helped me to find the feeling and the image I was going for.  My next step is to do thumbnails of my image to find the color scheme I want to use.  After that I can go to work on the canvas.  I can’t wait!  ❤



Multimedia.  Photocopied eyes that were modge podged onto a wood panel.

What does it say to you?  What does it make you feel?  ❤



Disco Star Wars – collage

I made this collage with a computer way back when I was in high school.  It has always been a favorite of mine.  I didn’t find out until many years later that there is actually music to go with it!  ❤

Images and characters do not belong to me.


Not All Who Wander – collage

A little while ago I got myself a new sketchbook to kick start my new journey through art.  Some of the first images in it were made by collaging images from magazines.  Here is the first image I made.  Perhaps it is something of a self portrait?  ❤

I cannot claim to own the individual images, and since I don’t have the magazines anymore, don’t know who really owns them.  They came from multiple sources.
