Art and some of my favorite things today!

Happy Friday!  

I'm happy to be home today painting and cleaning house while the paint dries.  
Easter snuck up on me this year... Much to do the get ready for the weekend.  
I need to pick up everyone's favorite candy, cadbury mini eggs.

I have some art to share along with my new favorite chapstick and I want to share my friends new book!  I am so excited for her!

This is a painting I started in Italy

I made a photocopy of the painting then cut it up and made a new collage painting with it.

I love how it turned out!

I try to document my paintings from start to finish.  It changes so much from beginning to end.
The pictures below show different stages of the same piece.

I think this piece is finally finished!!!  It's been through several stages and I finally feel happy with it.

My friend Lynn Cohen just had her first book published!
Click on the photo below to find out more about it!
I was honored to write a review on the back of the book.  Check it out, I know you will love it!

Lastly, I wanted to share my new favorite chapstick.  I was in Portland last weekend for my sons baseball tournament and we stopped at New Seasons market in between games.  
I saw this chapstick called Portland Bee Balm and thought I'd give it a try.  Oh my goodness, I love it!
The best part is that it's locally made and totally organic!  
If you live outside Portland you can get it online at  

Thank you for stopping by!  

Wishing you all a Happy Easter Weekend!
