Wonderful Junk Art

I saw this on a blog that I follow. Just had to share this with a link to her etsy shop.. So cute it hurts. She is making 1000 pieces. They have vintage toy parts & other found items.

Very colorful. Makes you smile everytime and I like things that make you smile.

"Slim the Cowboy is another colorful carney and quite the sexy, suave cowboy. His body is a vintage xylophone and he's got vintage bowling pin legs and old ceramic boots. His head is an old red croquet ball and can be posed. He's tall and extremely thin. Slim measures 30 1/2" tall and 14" wide at the shoulders. He's named, signed, dated and number 88 in the series of 1000 Pieces. Thanks."

Watercolor brights!


Michelle Brown has a wonderful Ning site. She has classes, and photos and videos.

She has couple of videos that you can look at and photos of students work. I think all of us need to loosen up some. I am always drawn to the artists that can work this way.

I would post a picture but don’t want to steal from her page. Just click on the link and take a look.

First Blog

I have been wanting to do a blog for some time although I am not sure that I anything of interest to say but I do sometimes have things that I want to post about.

I have been trying to figure out how to combine all my interests in one blog. I love a lot of things but knew that I would never keep up with more than one blog. That's enough work for me. So there will be lots of pictures and a few words.

The things of greatest consistant interest are family, painting, airports, and all things Texas.

All of the others change frequently. You can just never tell......
