Hi everyone!  I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!  Being productive, being creative, getting organized...and squeezing in some of your favorite things as well!  I am having a super productive week so far.  (so far...those are the key words!)  I slacked a little on my postings these last two weeks...out of the clear blue sky, I passed a kidney stone on my left side two weeks ago today and still have another one in my right kidney.  Needless to say, I was completely caught off guard and felt like my energy, motivation and creativity had been zapped from me for at least a week due to the whole ordeal...  But I am back, moving forward again...creating...as well as feeling like a soccer goalie in the afternoons dodging homework questions, snack requests and trying to figure out what to make for dinner!  Oh...and keeping baby Curran OUT OF TROUBLE is becoming more and more challenging everyday (see below!).  But I wanted to get in a post today (even though it is late in the day) to share some REALLY WONDERFUL news with everyone!  I have been wanting to spread the word since the end of the summer...but chose to wait until the "big debut" at Market in Atlanta...which was just over a week and a half ago!  Oopsy Daisy Fine Art for Kids has chosen to license three of my pieces as part of their 2011 collection!  They chose my Elephant, Giraffe and Gorilla!  I have included photos of the Oopsy Daisy showroom as well as two of my pieces on display in the showroom!  I am super excited about this opportunity because I am so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful selection of artists!  I admire and am inspired greatly by so many of them!  I feel so lucky!!!

I know that I have shared photos of my art table with you before...but I was not sure if you knew that I worked on several pieces at a time.  I usually work on 5-8 pieces at a time.  I was able to dive into a whole new batch (8) just yesterday and it felt wonderful!  I will be able to share those with you on Friday!  The canvases above were completed last week and they are now on display up at Artistree Co-op here in Orlando!  I will post some of the finished pieces tomorrow.

Chase your Dreams...fresh off the art table today!
I had been dreaming of a kite and this phrase for such a long time!
It feels great to finally see what I myself was chasing!

Ahhh...my 2 year-old...Curran...she LOVES to
get into lipstick!  Lipstick!?!?  Heck, she gets into ANYTHING
she can find!  I could not resist posting this photo of her!

That is all for today.  Tomorrow is a new day...bringing new hope, creativity, new opportunities and lots of color (hopefully!).  Till then, stay calm.  Stay strong.  Be grateful.

Live Artfully,
