Giving a shout out

Today I am doing something a bit different. I have recently met a fellow artist who has been pushing me (in a good way) to get it together and blog more. So in honor of him I am commiting myself to doing just that, I am excited and also feeling driven to really get more adventurous about my blogging. So if this is the first time seeing my blog or you have been checking in you are going to want to come back often because it is just getting good.

So I wish you happy reading and happy blogging.

Lastly in a grateful spirit to that fellow artist check out his blog, it is great and totally different than mine, which will probably make it even more fun for you, no matter how different two people are we can be united in art, now that is cool

As far as the picture for today, just another artist that inspires me, the famous glass artist

Chihuly, this is found in the ceiling at the Bellagio in Vegas, it is breathtaking, I love the colors, I could lay on the floor and stare at it for hours (but I do not think the staff at the fancy dancy hotel will let me, snobs lol)

eco art

Another eco art piece on cedar board recycled from my parent's residing project. I take them size and shape as is, which means none of them are square. I staple muslin or linen on them whatever I have laying around the house from other projects and then I paint on them. Very fun projects.
I am trying to loosen up and do more landscapes, it is a bit of a challenge to me but since I love landscapes so much I thought I would push myslef, I am starting to come up with some that I am really happy with, including this one.
