Acrylic paints...My very first time participating. Paint Party Friday:

Birthday Girls.....

Not a great photo..but a FUN painting....celebrating my friend Chris's birthday today....Last year when my
husband passed there were 3 of us here...We now refer to ourselves as "The Girls"....we tend to like to drink Magic Hat beer those bottle caps are placed on the painting!
Red hair/ Nancy (my sister)  Birthday Girl in the middle...and ME....and yes...we all do look very similar!! LOL  

New Custom Guardian Angel Boxes...

Both of these boxes are going to Great Grand Babies!!  So much fun to work on!  The box for Leon has the koi fish on the back to represent his Japanese heritage.


Or...SKATE!  Once again it is time for the "Get A Grip" show ...where artists/people of all ages...are given skate board grip tape and asked to make art out of it...They then go on sale or auction to raise money for a local skate board park.  Both of my adult children were really big skate board fans...especially my son...So a lot of time (and money!) was spent both at skate board shops...for skate boards...skate board related was a way of life for him in the 90's!!  And now my little grandson (7 years old) is totally into skate boarding too....So a nice skate board park would be great for him...
I came up with the idea of a robot and went about cutting out a templet and covering it with the tape and then the local Lowe's isles gave me all sorts of wonderful things to make him come to life...copper wire...reflectors
pullies for wheels...reflecting tape...concave mirror...The best part is that there is a string of rope lights that back lights this piece and of course the reflectors glow in the dark!  I had a lot of fun making SK-8....hope he brings in some good money!!
Artfully Yours...

My Christmas Ornaments

I painted chipboard ornaments this year for gifts....Adorable funky birds!! 

mandala clock

I made this clock out of an old 33 1/2 record. It was choosen to be in my friend Marney Makridakis's book....I will have several other art pieces and exercises in writing that I did for her in there too!

breast cancer fund raiser

This is the chair I have done for the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester ARTrageous Affair fund raiser!


I have been in the studio making some GUARDIAN ANGEL BOXES for a couple very special people...
Sometimes you just have to give to others in order to heal yourself....Each box has elements inside to bring
a sense of peace to the person receiving the box...I SO LOVE MAKING THESE AS RANDOM GIFTS OF KINDNESS!
