Sacred Sunday

Advent, the church season of expectantly waiting.

" 'The days are coming,' declares the Lord, 'when I will fulfill the gracious promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah.' "
" 'In those days and at the right time I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David's line; he will do what is just and right in the land.' " 
                                                                       Jeremiah 33:14-15

My friend Karla and I combined our talents to create this liturgical stole for Pastor Tari.
The color of the Advent season is purple/blue. I produced the design for the background fabric and Karla added the appliqued images & embellishment.

Here is pastor Tari looking very festive and pleased with her gift.
I produced the background fabric design using the clay printing method. Then the design was transferred onto fabric.

Picture Perfect

We could all only hope that our turkey would look this good.
Maybe it isn't real; maybe it's just plastic.
This bird would be a worthy subject for a painting.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Sold !

Runestone 12"x18"  water media monoprint
This print sold today. It was a joy to sell to someone who was so excited to add this piece to her collection.
The inspiration for the work was the Rune stone inscription carved into rocks near Heavner, OK. I have visited them, and would have loved to have run my hands over them, but if everyone did that they would soon be gone. So they are protected by glass.

$54 million van Gogh

Landscape Under a Stormy Sky
by Vincent van Gogh

I wonder what the artist would think of that price.

More Day of the Dead


 The best part of the Day of the Dead Festival for me is viewing the altars. They are done with a outpouring of imagination. And color, color, color! They make me happy.

Each one is created to celebrate life.
