Goddess Bastet

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're all well ;o) I finished another painting. Nope, it's not Disco Rules! He will be finished soon ;o) My Goddess Bastet painting was calling to me and I had to finish her first ;o) She took me many days and hours, but it was such a pleasure ;o) I love painting Goddess Bastet in my own way ;o) She is my favorite Goddess to paint ;o)

This is my largest painting I have done of her so far! 9" x 12" and the sides are 1.5" thick.
Enjoy ;o)

"Goddess Bastet"
"Goddess of Cats, the sun and the moon."
Indeed, the people of ancient Egypt turned to Bastet for protection and for blessing, as she was a renowned and beloved Goddess. She was the protectress of women, children, and domestic cats. She was the Goddess of Sunrise, music, dance and pleasure, as well as family, fertility and birth ;o)

Hope you can see all the detail ;o) Click on the pictures to make them bigger ;o) I lover her ears! LOL!
Big Hugs, Stacy

New Crow Art and A Sneak Peak

Hi Everyone ;o) It's cool here ;o) The weather is changing! But, we still have our robins, so winter isn't here yet!
I finished some paintings ;o)
The first one is called, "The King and The Queen" (9" x 12" canvas)
They are watching over their Kingdom ;o)
"Winter Wonderland" (6" x 6" canvas)
Now many of you ask me, how do I get inspired and I always say, from everything! You never know where I will get an idea from. A couple of days ago, I was looking at my goofy mug.
I thought, maybe I could paint a surprised Crow and call it Boo? Like someone spooked him. Well, I started painting and something else took over! LOL! The painting is now called "Disco Rules". I have a crow in bell bottoms, with platform shoes dancing! LOL! The painting isn't completed! I just wanted to show, how things can inspire me ;o) Sorry the picture isn't that good, but I think you will get what's going on ;o)
Do you see the disco mirror ball? LOL! Hope I made you smile ;o) Can't wait to get this one finished! ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)

New Crow Art

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're all well ;o) I'm feeling really good today ;o) Last week, I was out of it. I wasn't feeling sick, but my mind was all over the place and I felt like a cloud was on top of me. You know what I mean? I'm glad that is over with!!!!
Hope you enjoy the new art ;o)
If you have been following my art for awhile, you realize, I don't paint my crows straight on. I think I can count twice, that I have painted my crows that way. Well, I was looking at Shelle's art, which I love and she inspired me! Many of you know Shelle ;o) She always has so much feeling in her art, no matter what she paints! This is the piece I was admiring.
"Entombed"
This is my piece, "The Eyes Are The Window To The Soul". (5" x 7" wood)


"Winter Kisses" (aceo 2.5" x 3.5")

This next aceo (2.5" x 3.5") I really liked the way it turned out! It's my ghost couple. "Forever Love"

Take Care Everyone ;o) Big Hugs ;o)

A Special Bottle and A Special Crow Painting

Hi Everyone ;o) Back in September for my birthday, Kim sent me a beautiful magical bottle filled with glass beads, herbs and oil. All made especially for me, by her little hands ;o) Decorated so pretty too ;o)

The only thing is, these are Kim's pictures. You see, when I started to open the box, something was rattling and I could smell a beautiful aroma. I didn't know what I was opening, this was a total surprise for me. I carefully unwrapped the bubble wrap and realized what Kim had sent me, but the bottle was smashed! I guess it was from the glass beads inside? Not sure? Because Kim had it packed really well.

I didn't know what to do? Should I say something? Should I not? Well, I decided to tell Kim, because I know she makes these for prizes and gifts and I didn't want for this to happen to her again. Kim was upset, but I said, everything happens for a reason. Maybe we are suppose to make this bottle together? I had never made anything like this before, so I thought it would be fun ;o) I had to ask Kim to send me more of the wooden decorations, because I couldn't get them off the broken glass!

So, I got one of my bottles. Sprayed painted it purple inside. Don't know why? Just did ;o) Then, Kim had printed out a birthday note for me. I cut it into little pieces and put it into the bottle, so I would have her wishes with me always ;o) After, I carefully picked out the beads and the herbs and placed it all into my bottle and put some silver material on top. I put the lid on and then decorated it. This is the bottle, Kim and I made together ;o)


This was a lot of fun to do ;o) Something I will never forget ;o)

I would like to leave you with a special order I just did. It was a great joy to create ;o)
"Santa Crow" (the sky took me a few hours, and it was worth it)

Have a great weekend ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)

Calaca Crow In Love

Morning everyone ;o) I have the pleasure this year, to be a sponsor in Magaly's All Hallow's Grim, So Good, So Dark Blog Party ;o)
I have to admit, it took me a while to create something! When I first started, this is what the painting was looking like.
I wanted to show the love of a crow couple. How they mate for life, unless one dies or is captured. As I kept looking at the painting, I kept seeing a skull, but not any skull, a beautiful decorated skull.
Then I darkened the background with some black, to make the color pop more and to create some images ;o)
When I was finished, I asked Magaly to name it. I don't know why? This is the first time I have done that. And, I love the name she came up with! "Calaca Crow In Love". Calaca is a Mexican Spanish name for skeleton. When they use a skull or skeleton during The Mexican Day Of the Dead Festival, the Calacas are depicted as joyous, rather than mournful.
Now, if you would like to win this painting, please go over and say hi to my wicked and beautiful talented writing friend Magaly and see what she wrote about this painting ;o)
There are also many other giveaways and stories to read. So, while you are there, snoop around my friends, you won't be sorry ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)

I'm Back ;o))))

Hi Everyone ;o) Well, two days of my computer not working properly, went to my computer not starting up! Off I went to Staples and my computer was shipped out to be fixed! I just got it back last night. And, I was up early this morning! I was back at Staples at 8:00am! Lucky the guy there is a real sweetheart! I had to go back and ask some more questions. I don't know the "proper" names for all this technical stuff, but basically, my computer's insides are all new ;o) LOL! The bill was a little over $400.00, but guess what? My computer is still under warranty ;o) I had to pay nothing! Yepeee ;o) But, now because it has new insides, it is doing things a little different, so I am confused! LOL! Like I said, lucky "my man" at Staples is there for me ;o)

Please be patient with me ;o) I am going to try to go through all your blog posts. I won't be able to comment on everything. Then I will catch up with e-mails ;o) I won't be getting any sleep this weekend! Oh, Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating ;o)

I will leave you with some new art ;o)

"Peek A Boo" (aceo 2.5" x 3.5") (This one made me smile!)
"Believe" (5" x 7" piece of wood)
"Nature" (6" x 8" flat canvas board) ( I like the eye!)
"A Magical Night" (4" x 4" gallery wrapped canvas)
"3 Wishes" (5 x 7 piece of wood) (This is my favorite painting! It is quirky, but I love it! I was imagining what my 3 wishes would look like?)
Big Hugs! Missed you All ;o)
