Girl with Bird

Girl with Bird

5.5 x 12 Acrylic on Wood

I started this sweet girl way back in March, just a few days before my appendix ruptured, and then forgot all about her.

Finally, was able to finish her. I love that her dress is more like a gown or robe.

Morning Coffee

Morning Coffee

10 x 10 acrylic on cradled wood panel

I actually don’t drink coffee very much anymore. Maybe once a week, if that.  It just makes me too jittery.  I do, however, love the smell of coffee and I love going to local coffee shops with my hubby.   Tea usually fills my daily cup – Earl Grey is my favorite. It’s warm, delicious and doesn’t pack as big of a caffeine punch.

Shop Update

Art by Regina Lord

My World

11 x 14 acrylic on stretched canvas

(sold)

I painted this precious mom and baby painting a couple of weeks ago. I had sketched out the idea for it a really long time ago and finally felt the need to paint it. I have prints, cards and art blocks available in my shop.

I added other stuff too. Like, new original art, a couple of ornaments and new art blocks.  I hope you will wonder over and check it out.  There is a new sale section too!

Just finished up the last of the art shows for this season and am planning a busy summer of new creations to get ready for the fall. And….. I am in the process of planning out a new e-course. It’ll be portrait painting of course. Newer stuff though.

But first, I have surgery tomorrow to remove my pesky little appendix. It is outpatient and I should be home by tomorrow evening!

Ganesha

Elspeth McLean

It is an amazing and magical thing when you get to meet someone you “know” from online. Last weekend, I was so very lucky to meet Elspeth McLean. Truly, the absolute highlight of my weekend.  She is a gorgeous and shining soul and words cannot describe how radiant, lovely and joyful she is. I feel so honored to have met her. She decided to take my Ganesha painting  home with her too.

Have you seen her dotillism artwork and mandala rocks? They are so amazing. I am very lucky to have two of them! They are beautiful, peace and heartfelt treasures. She has the loveliest video on how she makes them here.

Ganesha ~ New Beginnings

Art Prints Available

A little bit about Ganesha:

Ganesha (aka, Ganesh, Ganapati, Vinayaka) is the Hindu deity known as the remover of obstacles, the deva of wisdom and new beginnings. Often times, Ganesha is honored at the beginning of a journey, ritual or ceremony.

There are many variations the iconic Ganesha, and also many symbolic meanings. For example, the big head of the elephant symbolizes “big think”. Small mouth means to talk less, big ears for listening more. Open hand for blessing those on the right path and the hand carrying a “sweet” bowl symbolizes the rewards of hard work. The big belly is for digesting both the good and bad in life. There is more, not depicted in this version, but I love all of the symbolism and meaning of the wise elephant.

Art in the Garden -- Tucson, Arizona

A few pics from my art show over the weekend, Art in the Garden.  What a beautiful venue.  The lovely host, Glennda, actually has the show on her beautiful property twice a year. The guests get some tasty food, beautiful music and fun shopping.
