when you're out....




when you're out be sure to check out the april/may issue of old home interiors....two of my pieces were featured in their shopping guide, page 25....(the star of rosalie, which is always nice, because i had designed that piece for my mother), and the off white round chinese checker. The publicity.....ohhhh how that's a wonderful thing for any artist, for without the kindness' of these magazines, we would never be found...
many of us would not have this wonderful opportunity to create our work, raise kids at home, and feed our souls....we would instead be forced into that work force....and i for one have been told (more than once) that i probably couldn't make it out there.....due to my choice of dress being just one reason....my father always told me i dressed.....well, funny. hmmmm....my problem (as they see it) is that i believe that everything goes together if there is a shade of a similar color anywhere else in another item....so many many layers can really go together....i can't wait to show him my new knee-high red suede moccasins .....(and yes, they do go with everything!)


cardinals and blue jays were singing in my ears earlier...i just love those blue jays...they remind me of a gang of teenage boys....always causing havoc, they always make me laugh. for the past years they haven't been around my home, but less cats i believe may mean more blue jays? today we also added to our 'family'....1 fish...
so that gives us 1 strange cat, 2 labs (1 very odd), and one beagle, (faster than heck at a getaway) ...hmmm....sounds like a feeding chain to me.
great fun today in the studio....finished up some of your boards and carefully packed....off to california....and texas. the day ended up to be not full of rain so i was able to take in some spring sun and cool breezes sanding boards and sanding molding...i just love it when i can work outside, except when i have to go out in the winter....my rule this winter changed to not working outside if it was below 30....i guess that's fair enough...worked also painting some of the trim in the studio, will i ever get done....chartreuse does go with fuchsia....it really does! and calmed my painting colors to work on some farm game boards....boy they are flying out the door! do you know how hard it is to mix that blue?!! also received some nice mail from you that have received boards lately, which is always nice to hear back that i did fit in that perfect place!
well best be off for now...dogs are staring, it's just a matter of time before they start trying to climb up on me......
