a commonplace book...

lately I have been putting together a commonplace book, a journal filled with pretty images and favorite quotes and bits of inspiration, different kinds of lettering have been really fun, so here are some of those pages.

I know I'm showing a lot of painting things lately and people are probably used to me showing journal pages which I will post again soon, but lately I've been doing  a lot of painting something that I have always loved for about 20 years now and am having fun adding to my Etsy shop. So here are my two latest ones that are garden roses and I have them in my shop here , if any one is interested in checking them out. Thanks so much and I will probably be back next time with some journal pages :)

something new again...

i did a show a few months back where i sold my handpainted river stones, they are something that i just love creating and feels magical to create on these stones that come from mother nature so i thought i would share them here and list them in my etsy shop here if anyone would feel interested in purchasing them for a paperweight, on a windowsill with other bits of nature or on an altar if you meditate...
