Spring Sale

Happy Family everyone in Alberta!

Spending a relaxing day at home on the computer. :P

Watched a very interesting Japanese movie last night, called "Departures". Its about a man whose dream it was to play in an orchestra finds himself out of work. He returns home to look for a job, to come across an ad for a job as an "encoffiner", which isn't a highly respected job by his fellow citizens, much less wife. As the movie progresses, he gains an appreciation for assisiting people on their departure from life. It was a really lovely movie and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys watching foreign films.

In celebration of spring I decided to have a sale on Etsy. Until March 31 everything will be 15% off, using the coupon code SpringSale.

Friday afternoon

Spending a quiet day at home. Haven't been up to too much art-wise, but I ended up in a BNR on Etsy today:

Was a little frustrated that I poked a hole in one of my paintings while adding picture wire a couple of days ago. Can't believe I was so clumsy. Hopefully I can either fix it, or use the remaining painting in some sort of collage or something.

Been a while...


Been a while since I've last blogged. What have I been up to? Not much, been working, and enjoying the drive out to Wetaskiwin every day, even in spite of the winter road conditions & loads of snow that seems to fall every week. I am glad to see the sun slowly coming back.

So lately I've been delving into watercolour pencil crayons. After some experiments last summer that didn't really work out, I think I've finally figured out how to use these and get some nice results. Not really aboriginal artwork, but they're cute. I added two kitties to my Etsy page, the grateful kitty is here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/66345763/grateful-kitty-original
I plan to list more, & am thinking of turning them into small cards.
