Etsy shop and for the shop in Ranchos plaza that carries some of my work. The painting is 20"x 20" rusted tea bags, thread, oil, acrylic, cold wax on canvas, Titled "Art of Tea #2. I am also making art cards, handmade collage art pieces that are cards. They can be an all in one card and gift. Perfect for anytime and for the holidays. I have a bunch in the shop and this one is in my Etsy shop now and I will be adding many more in the next few weeks. Let me know what you think. I hope all is well and happy with you all. XOXO

Wood, acrylic on paper in Plexiglas box
61 x 61 x 10.25 inches
I have been wanting to do a post on artists I love, I finally decided today is the day.
Leonardo Drew is one who inspires me most, I love this man and his work, go here to see more.
Another man who has inspired me so much is Mark Bradford, his collage/paintings are amazing, go here to see what I am talking about.
A man who brings me to my knees with his talent is Lucian Freud.
You can find lots of information on him, but this is a place to start.
Of course there are many women on my list, Jenny Seville is a painter's painter and I have loved her work for many years.
Cecily Brown is another, her paintings are stunning.
Then there is one of my favorite artists ever, Kiki Smith, a woman after my own heart.
I could go on for days, but these are my current obsessions, and all but Lucian are alive and well.
I hope you enjoy the links.

47"x 47", 172 rusted tea bags sewed together,Venetian plaster, oil paint, graphite and cold wax.
I have been calling it "The Beast" while I worked on it :-), but I needed another name, I grabbed a book and opened it at random, pointed to a sentance and it said "The Art of Tea", I am not making that up.
It is a perfect title since it was made with teabags! The Universe is amazing :-). If you click on the image then click again you will see all the yummy detail.
I love to hear your thoughts.

Altered Page blog has challenged us to show our studio table in a mess and link back to his blog, so go here to see more studios. I have included my studio helpers as well, Max my cat and Bella my dog, Zoe has no interest :-). The painting I am working on is in progress and is in no way done. There is much sanding of venetian plaster and tea bags going on at the moment.
The last photo is where it is today.
I also have a tiny spare room where I keep all my art supplies, but it is too small to work in.
To see finished work go to my website here.
Have fun checking out the studios! Thanks Seth!
