Flourish of Gold Velvet

this week it was time
to make a curtain for my bedroom window

it was fun to see it come to life
just like my drawings do

first a gorgeous velvet skirt i rarely wear for the fabric
later this handmade elephant ribbon i have carried around for at least 15 years
then the drawn up gathers

accents of quartz crystal and freshwater pearls between each wave

like a dance it came together

 i went berry picking in the forest:



what have you been up to?

Happy Birthday Wyndi!

My beautiful sister Wyndi asked me to paint a family portrait 
for her birthday, she envisioned this scene. 

Happy Birthday Wyndi!

wishing you a new year full of days and nights that feel wonderful to you!


have you noticed the wee cabin photo on my sidebar?
that is home sweet home

it is time to change the window trim color

if you notice on the porch the old trim
brown and blue
i painted one window with merlot and mauving up
what do you think?

I think i will live with it for a while and see if it makes me smile
or shake my head

Montana Summer

this piece came to life
due to summer storms

in the past month i have experienced two trees
being hit by lightning
the sound of a hit is SO dramatic!

bits of tree fly everywhere 
even hang from other trees
the storm then passes and skies clear
rainbows rise above
flowers dance under the sun

hard to know there was ever a storm
there is one less tree standing

Montana Summer!

they say if you don't like the weather:
wait five minutes!
