I want to go west! Lots of land and starry skies above. I want to go where the buffalo roam. This has brought on a fascination with little travel trailers.

This new painting is called "Trailers for Sale or Rent". I am guessing their vehicle that pulls this trailer is in the shop. :( But you just have to make the best of it. Right?

That's what we decided to do with all the snow we have been getting. We were lucky enough to get a family ski pass from a friend. By the end of the day my son was on the big hill! Sounds like Colorado might be another trip out west to plan.

I made these cute little key chain/ lip stick mirror/ pendants. Yes, they can be all that. Ha ha. I have them on key chain holders, but you can easily add the pendant to a chain if you like. They are mirrored so you can always see to reapply your favorite lip stick. These are all made from upcycled bottle caps. Yeah! Speaking of upcycled,my sister Susan and I always buy library books that are about to be thrown out. Take a look at this vintage library book that my sister gave me in the pic. Cutest little children's book with the word DESTROY stamped on the front page. Isn't that just a little funny?

I will be adding these to my Esty shop soon along with a new painting I just finished.

The kids are back to school today, so I am off the hook on painting more clone troopers, for now. I said we could just print out like ten of the one I did and write different names on them all because they are all CLONES, but he explained that they DO have differences on their armor, scratches, hand prints and such.

This is one that I have had in the works
for a while. I am glad to have it finished and up on Etsy.
I am gathering supplies to be able to make prints so hopefully next week I will start listing them.

Too many snow days. I finally filled Anthony's request, but now he has a list.

I just listed this one on Etsy.
It is called "Evening Mass".
I really like that there are so many people to look at in this one. I have a few others in the works, so I might have a new one tomorrow too.
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

Here are a couple of my latest paintings. These are large 11X14 stretched canvases

I will slowly be adding to my shop this week. I have several new paintings waiting in the wings along with many I am trying to store in my head.

I also have so many ideas for the house. I am in the middle of freshening things up around here. I have spring on the mind.

I am always up for a change.
Even though we had such a magical Christmas I am so ready for the New Year!Out with the old and in with the new! I wish you all the best year ever!
