I have added tags to my etsy shop...

Theses are now in my Etsy shop...just click on store name http://www.etsy.com/shop/mystymeadows the photos, the main photo, is blurry and since I am not a graphic designer person, for the life of me I can't figure out how to make it better so if any of you out there can help I would very much appreciate it! This is why etsy frustrates me. Even with all the advice they give I can't get it to work. Every time I ask they refer me to their FAQ's. All of these tags are 6 1/2" x 3". I used images from my art and tried to make use of one face for many as you can see. There are only three that are different faces. Oh this was so much fun! I have to buy more tags! Do you think anyone would buy them in my Etsy store? I am so down on Etsy right now!

This weekend I found some stamps I had to have...

They are called Doll Part Stamps by Characte Constructions. I had fun stamping them out. Gluing them together and adding glitter and puff paints and applying them to a piece of cardboard. I removed the top layer of cardboard to give an ocean effect and left the top part to paint a sky. It was fun what can I say.

Sometimes little things bring such peace!

I started with an outline from an old page in an old poetry book. I cut it out.
I crossed out some of the words and came up with...hours are numbered, and the world retiring, the sun appears, astonished Art structures, stone by stone, the mad winds night-work. (Sorry I cut off the name of poet and can't find it to give credit!)
Some supplies...

And finished off with a pic on the left of it using my Pogo, hey, I bought it, might as well make use of it!

Got bit by the Modigliani bug....




The top one was a colored pencil sketch that was ultimately painted in acrylics on canvas (2nd image). The bottom one is a colored pencil sketch and will be painted onto canvas soon. I have a few more of this type of pencil sketching that I am working on, kind of like a series. I am having so much fun and it is so relaxing to do right now. I am trying my best to stay away from FB, (the I could be doing something better with my time eater upper) as much as possible!


I am working on a portrait for someone but have come head long into a block!!! I guess I am so afraid of them not liking it I have froze up! I am working through it though. Isn't it ridiculous to put myself through this! I just need to go with the flow and breathe. What are these stupid invisible walls I put up that make me doubt and question myself!!!


I am going to start putting some paintings up on ebay soon. Forget Etsy!


The moment waits for you....
