Boho Treasury on Etsy

It's so fun to have a complete stranger choose one of my pieces to include in an Etsy Treasury.  Today this very thing happened with my print "Startling".  Sweet!

Maya Angelou - Shero Portrait in honor of Black History Month

February is, of course, Black History Month.  So, here is a portrait of one of the people I most admire in the world.  I devoured her autobiography series as a teenager in the eighties, nibbled at her poetry throughout the years, got goosebumps when she read her piece "On the Pulse of the Morning" at Clinton's inauguration, and was brought to tears by the tenor of her voice when I saw her in person at a lecture a few years ago.  Yes, to borrow her phrase,  it is safe to say she is a "shero" of mine.

Etsy Treasury - I've created my first!

So, check out the Treasury I created on Etsy.  This is my first attempt at putting together one of these little jems, and I'm quite happy with the results.  It's actually pretty hard to get a treasury slot, so I'm extra happy to have been able to show off all these fine artist's work.  Go and see for yourself.

Love Dove

I love doves.  Mourning doves in particular.  I've always thought that if I were to be asked by James Lipton during an interview......(you know, like when I'm on "Inside the Actor's Studio" -not particularly likely, but a girl can dream!).... "What sound do you love?"  My answer would likely be: "the cooing of a mourning dove". 

The dove on the top is a detail image from my mixed-media piece called "Faith".   I really liked this sweet little bird image, so I put together a re-mix.....The image on the bottom is a NEW offering on my and Imagekind shops.  The watercolor and pen Love Dove is surrounded by a sweet little hand-drawn border.

Guatelmala Style Bird

Here's a quick little postcard I just finished.  I'm planning to paint a series of Mayan birds, and this postcard was a quick study/experiment of style and materials.
