New Year wishes...


May your life be filled with love, peace and happiness and lots of  art making.
 May 2012 be the beginning of a world ruled by compassion, peace and harmony and respect for our beautiful planet earth.

Above is a little mixed media piece that I sent into a show at Westmont College in Montecito.




My favorite Christmas present this year...a beautiful heart shaped soap from a local shop.


A walk around the neighborhood....toyon berries...



hollyhocks blooming ....


prickly pear cactus.....


and my latest hooked squirrel.

Hope your New Year is filled with wonderful new adventures!

What a beautiful soap...I thought it was a wooden carved heart (you now have me searching for a piece of soft wood to set about carving!!!).
I love the naive style of the painting you did for the exhibition. That would look lovely in a hooked rug too.
Thank you for your kind wishes for 2012...health, happiness and prosperity to you and your family Mary and I look forward to visiting your beautiful blog again this year.

Hi there Mary
Happy new year to you too! I share your wishes for 2012. I love the style of the painting you did for your exhibition. And agree with Jacky that it would look beautiful as a hooked rug.
Your blog is always such a treat to visit and I think of you every day when I look at the beautiful bird you made for me and the kitty too.
Much love
