*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to The May Monster Madness Blog Party!
Of course I wanted to paint something, but what? So, I gave some paper and pencils to my friends, and asked them for some ideas.
They said, a Crow Vampire. I said, I have done so many Crow Vampires!
They said exactly, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! LOL!
So, this is what I came up with.
Let me introduce you to "Vamp". He's dancing under the full moon. I love the bleeding heart!
I enjoyed making him. And, guess what, I'm giving him away for the blog party. I'll ship him anywhere. I painted him on a flat canvas panel, which is 6" x 8". If you would like Vamp, tell me what song, you think he is dancing too. I think it's Boogie Wonderland, by Earth Wind and Fire. LOL! The winner will be announced on Friday Jun 3rd.
Make sure to visit the other party goers!
Thanks for coming by.

Hi Everyone
Happy Sunday
Long weekend for us in Canada and the weather is beautiful!
I want to thank you for all the positive energy with the coin! I have been doing a lot of research. I know it will have to be something truly special, for them to pick it.

Since my crows have came back to me, I feel they have been really pushing me out of my comfort zone. For those of you that have been following me for awhile, I know you see the change and I am really loving this transition! If you want change, you got to go for it, right!!! And, you have to trust!

The next painting I couldn't wait to show you! She kept calling to me do it! I couldn't put it down, as soon as I started it. Something totally different for me! I hope you like it! I have to admit, I'm very proud of her! I don't know why I am calling her, her, but I am.
Let me introduce to you, my 3 eyed crow. (I love her eyes.)
"The Seer"
I read a very touching post from Debra, She Who Seeks. It is a tribute for the people at Fort McMurray, dealing with the forest fires and to all of us waging our own personal battles. You can do it!! Rise Again!!! Believe you me, you can!!!!!!

Big Hugs!!!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're well!
I have to tell you something! I met this really nice guy, who I have only talked to 3 times, but we get along great and in the times we have talked, he knows that I'm an artist. (Get your mind out of the gutter! It's not what you are thinking! LOL! He is married with children.) His boss works very closely with the Royal Canadian Mint. The  Royal Canadian Mint, makes our coins and they also do special collector coins. His boss does a lot of work with the collector coins. The collector coins that show art on them, use Canadian artists. Artists submit their work, with a story, things get looked over and if they are picked, they get full recognition! No money is involved, but to get a piece of your art on a coin, IS MAJOR!! You never know what it could do for your career.

Anyways, I talk too much! LOL! What my friend suggested for me to do is, make 3 different sketches, with short stories and submit them! He said he would back me all the way and has full confidence in me! I'm shaking! LOL! Like he said, I have nothing to loose! And, that is totally true. The only thing he said, is that "crows" might be a hard sell, but he said, it all depends what I come up with. I know they have done special coins for Halloween, with ghosts. But, I just don't want it for Halloween. I have to get my thinking cap on. I'm excited!!!

It's funny, when I have been doing my meditations, I've been asking, am I on the right path. I am always asking for signs or messages and keep my eyes and ears open. And, then this happens. Oh well, we will see what happens! I do feel good! LOL!

Now, many of you already know, that I love to dance. And, if you are a new follower, well, I love to dance! And, I dance anywhere! If I feel like it, I dance! I just heard the new Justin Timberlake song, Can't Stop The Feeling! I love it! It's a feel good song! So, let's send out some good energy and shake our booties! Turn up the music and dance!!!!

Remember, full moon this week! Look up into the sky, dance and put all your wishes out there! Also, Mercury comes out of retrograde on the 22nd! Yes!
Big Hugs!

Hey Everyone
I wanted to tell you, I cut my hair again!  It's kind of getting fun, whenever I decide to cut my hair, just to grab my scissors and do it! LOL! But, I think this is the shortest I will go for right now!
It's not the best pic. I kept making stupid faces when trying to take the picture and then I kept laughing! LOL! I will take a better one for the blog. But, you get the idea with the hair. It's become more curly. I see more of the white/grey coming in too. It's weird just from letting some hair go, how free you can feel. But, maybe it's because that hair I had, (and colouring it), I was trying to be someone else, and now I am being me!!!
I got my "Star" painting finished.
This is the start to my next painting. Either I'm painting a 3 eyed crow or a skull and crow, not sure yet.
I'm working on a painting, for my giveaway in the May Monster Madness Blog party! Here are some sneak peaks.
Now I'm thinking the beak is too small for the crow. Hmmm..

Question for you all!!!! You know how I paint aceo's (2.5" x 3.5"), well, I was thinking of doing some paintings, like a 4" x 6" on canvas paper, that people could frame themselves. Sometimes, aceo's are too small. I also know, buying original art can be expensive, this way the cost would be lower.

I'll be around soon! For some reason, Blogger wouldn't let me post yesterday and it wouldn't let me comment either??

Hi Everyone!!!
Hope you're well!
I've been missing in blog land for the last few days! I promise I will be around in the next 3 days!

I've been looking at my Etsy shop and I didn't like it. It wasn't me anymore! My crows were giving me shit! They were right, I had lost them! But, maybe not lost them, just going through my journey and now is the right time for them to come back, full force!! I have so many ideas floating around in my head! This is a good thing!

So, my shop is in "revamping" mode, till I get some new art finished!

I did finish "Vision", and I put claws on him! (I liked how the claws turned out!) I felt he was very strong and powerful! When I looked at his face, it look to me like something was being shown to him. Something he could conquer. This is why I called the painting,"Vision".
And, I started another painting, which I will be calling, "Star".
Not done yet! Still lots more to do!
Big Hugs! I will be around soon! We're suppose to get snow this weekend???? Let's hope not too much! LOL!

Look up!!!
Yes, the heart is now red!
That little heart turned into a puffy red heart! LOL! I was really trying to match the red that I put in the crow. But, I guess when I was painting, as I usually do, I mix several colours together. Do you think I could get the right colour combination for the heart? No way! So, I looked at my puffy heart and decided to leave it that way and put a bright red on top. I think she is pretty. And, I thank you for your input! This crow has found what she's looking for!

I did start another painting.
It's not finished. Still more detail to do and I am deciding if I should put some claws in, or not. What do you think?

Hi Everyone
Hope you're well! I'm getting better, but still not 100%.
Today, I went back to the corner of our property, to visit the large old stump, of the Maple tree.
I wish she wasn't hidden! Would love everyone to see her. When we first moved in, she was a massive tree! Too big to be on the edge of another's property. In a forest, we would have left her. When it came to chopping her down, we left a very large stump. I would say it is about 12 feet high. She has been like this for about 10 years now. Losing her bark and slowly, withering down.
I think she is so beautiful. We had a lot of large trees on our property, that we had to cut down, but we have left the stumps high. The animals love it! If we leave them tall enough, the Nuthatches have homes in them for a couple of years.
For this girl, I have been gathering her "soil", she has been dropping, since withering down. I usually get a wheel barrel a year. It is so fertile! The garden loves it!!!

Just to let you know, when I painted "La Luna", a change with my art was happening again. It's hard to explain, when it happens. As you know, I never fight it, I just go with the flow. My crows are really speaking out to me, with what is happening inside of me. I continue to grow everyday, with the journey of loving myself.
"Debra", from She Who Seeks, wrote, I love the black feathered crow against the white moon. Very spiritual, I think. I see you've added a tiny heart near the moon's edge. Are you debating whether to paint it red or not, for a tiny splash of colour?

I have to admit, I was going to leave it white, but now I'm wondering. What do you think?

Some flowers blooming on the vine around my garden. For all of you, Happy Mother's Day! Remember, that counts for those special people who are there for you, like a mom, or for those special people who have fur babies.

Big Hugs! Talk soon!

Hi Everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Guess what? I'm doing better! Yes!! I've started taking drugs that are for a combination of the flu and allergies. I hate taking drugs, but at this time, I have to. The only down side is, I get sleepy when taking them. So, I'm trying to only really take them when I need them!

I did get some painting finished!
I kept "Earth" the way she was.
This girl is named, "Yes".
I really read all your comments about La Luna, so I decided to keep her as is, but I still wanted to do a painting, with a rose. This one I named "Wild Rose". I might change the finish on it. It might be a little too glossy. It's so hard to photograph the colour red too. I did love the way it turned out, but like I said, I might change the finish.
Now for "La Luna". This is the way she looked before.
Here is "La Luna" now.
I will be around soon! Big Hugs!
Oh, I forgot to tell you, I cut my hair again. I took my scissors and went shorter.
