Three Headed Monster

I've decided to try and clean up some old projects and start new ones. The 3 legged tuffet has been sitting on top of an corner cabinet for almost 2 years!  The large Izzy head belonged to the first one I ever tried to do and I tore her apart, sanded and started rebuilding. The smaller 2 Izzies are waiting just in case I finish the other projects. I continue to have to use almost Herculean strength to push through that old demon called depression. Pray it doesn't take me another year! Blessings!!

The Arts For Act Walk Was Fun!

Hildy and Tilly were the first to go! The buyer fell in love and insisted that she must have them!. My work will be exhibited until September 4th, 2012. Pray with me that more buyers will fall in love. There was a lot of interest and compliments. I think Lady Nocturnia or the Elegant Bunnies will go next! That's Claudia Goode the curator and a great artist in her own right holding my prim Santos. Just a reminder that all proceeds generated is for the Abuse Counselling Treatment Center. Blessings everyone!

Arts For Act 2012 Presents An Evening of Art Blues

This gala event was held at the Harborside Event Center in Fort Myers, Fl on August 11th, 2012. All proceeds are to benefit the Abuse Counseling Treatment Center. The center serves a tri-county area for victims of domestic violence and their children, survivors of sexual assault and victims of human trafficking.
Santa Blue generated quite a bit of interest and there were at least  8 bids on the clipboard when I left the event. I know he was sold but not to whom or for how much. There was an elegant couple who spoke to me and bid on him for one of their homes in the mountains saying he would be perfect for that space! Yea for Santa Blue!
