Here's a little something...

I've been working on the past couple of days. It's amazing what I can do when my mind feels free. :-) (old newspapers, old masking tape, old mod podge, free donated acrylic paint)

Here's what is inspiring me at the moment

Here are a couple of illustrations/paintings I have done recently. I've been so inspired by the imagery from the new 'Alice in Wonderland' Film.

So pretty...

When you’re scared and feel all alone
Reach out for me
In the cold and dark of night
Reach out for me
I will always be there for you
No matter what you say or you do
I will always shine hard for you
And light your way

When the world is dragging you down
Reach out for me
And when the hurting goes too deep to tear
Reach out for me
No matter how far away
Whether it’s night or day
Remember I’m under the same big sky as you

The warmth from the sun will liberate and beautify
So spread your wings and soar into the sky
As the dragonfly

When you feeling shackled and chained
Reach out for me
When you’re tethered by doubt and fear
Reach out for me
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do
I’d lay down my life for you
I want to believe in the spell in the spell you weave

And love will always heal and purify
So open up your wings and soar as the dragonfly
With every dawn there comes a sunrise
After every storm there comes a blue sky
With every kiss there comes a promise

The warmth from the sun will liberate and beautify
So spread your wings and soar as the dragonfly
And love will always heal and purify
So open up your wings and soar into the sky
As the dragonfly

***Someday, someone is going reciprocate this sentiment, and it's gonna' be great. :-)

Also, my Abraham quote for the day is equally great:

Someone has said, "the Universe has imagined it even better than you have." And we like to add to that: The Universe got all of its information about what you like from you, and it has remembered every piece of it and has put it together in perfect formation. And so, the things that are on their way to you are so much better than you even know that you want. And as you allow them, the essence all of these things that the Universe knows that you are wanting make their way to you and appear in perfect timing for you.

--- Abraham

My surprises!

My wonderful sister Holly and brother-in-awesomeness Steve went on a trip to Disney world a couple of weeks ago and brought me some suprises back. I love them! :-)

This is so perfect for me! A little Tinkerbell holding a gumdrop, and all that glitter! :-D

They got me these socks in the Japan part of Epcot. They are so comfy, and the little bunnies are just cute.

My new ring!!!

This ring should be on it's way, from Spain, to me very shortly from an awesome Etsy Seller. I like it very much for a few reasons. One, while I was in college I designed sterling vessels to hold water and plants. My vessels were not practical, more to photograph on the body. Another reason is that, I choose to see this white duck as a strong ugly duckling , finding her own way to becoming a swan. Sorry little mallard. Plus, I just love ponds and water gardens! I can't wait to get this. :-)

Listening to Depeche Mode - Leave in Silence... feels perfect right now.

Lots and lots of pictures of empty bowls!

I want to learn how to make one like this!

Holly, you did a great job on this. Love the feet!

Steve's Rock Band themed bowl! Very manly... lol!

Kelly's simple design is great!

One of the parents at my school made this bowl to look like a pot pie. Mmm!!!

An attempt of mine. Now I know what to do to improve next time. :-)

Jeff's Hell Raiser themed bowl. The spikes are awesome/hard for a clumsy person (me) to keep on.

I'm partial to this auto themed bowl. It came out great, Derek!!!

taken with my cell phone... (must invest in a regular camera, and a manicure... :-P)

New Paintings

I planned on hanging two paintings downtown today, but I really wasn't sure about how either one of them turned out. I decided to hang the monochromatic one, and work on the other one some more.
