kickin' it old school....



Look Ma! (everyone's going electric)
Neighbors stitched and sewn
Dwelling x 4


Yep-back to houses and cars and lots of hot wax.  I have a few more ideas sketched out for oil/encaustic pieces but they take more time to complete so I decided to heat up the palette and just paint with wax today.  Sage felt all the birthday love sent his way and had an amazing and memorable 5th birthday complete with pinata ( which seemed to be made of iron-what's up with that?).  Thanks!

ps...these 3 little block painting will be added to my etsy shop tomorrow morning.

I'm smiling because you paint houses and cars and those are two things I paint a lot of too! I'll have to post some of my car paintings...

They are great. Hope you are holding up well with lots to accomplish.

I love the cars!! With all that you have going on it amazes me you get anything finished. You're an inspiration - now I have to go finish some things...
BTW - last year you encouraged me to start a blog through the beeswax team. Slow going at first but now I'm loving it! Thanks :)

The new work is so sweet, so charming, so fresh and innocent.

Love the little houses...I also have a thing about 'em... not sure why! The cars are cute too! Oooh, pinatas are such fun at parties :) Happy Friday.

I bet the houses and the cars have even more symbolic resonance wiht you right now with all that you guys are going through right now!

As for your last question you left me at my blog....haven't started yet and she needs work in 2 weeks!! yikes! Told her I only had 6 pieces right now which she said was fine. phew! But I need to go get to work right now while Noah is sleeping. bye!

I like these....but I think you know already I am a wee bit partial to these colours/shapes (p.s let me know when the parcel arrives!)

Meri-thank you...
Brenda-there's no place like home, right?
Bridgette-realtor.com and craigslist are taking way too much of my late night time (there are houses/rentals on craigslist...who knew?)
Sammi-you will know because the contents are going to make a guest appearance here!
