my posts have all but stopped! i am so sorry. i know some of you junkies have been checking in and wondering if i have fallen off the face of the earth. see, here's the deal...i have SO much to say and NO TIME to say it in. at the end of my two art shows i ended up with some good money but a LOT of commissions on the calendar. i have been working steadily on those (even in Little Rock on thanksgiving) and then at the end of the day i am POOPED. i have had time to post a few funny facebook statuses. i need to figure out how to make twitter go directly on the blog (that is what i will try to do). ok, so this morning's post was something like "i ran out of my deodorant so i used TEEN SPIRIT of peanut's. is it weird that my armpits feel younger and a bit more argumentative?" yesterday's went something like, "i am a mall walker and i wear sketchers shape-ups. there, i said it."
so, do you want to see some of the art that i have been working on? hope so....cuz here it is anyway:
for a mother in law that was SO CLOSE to being tomato bowl queen...she could just TASTE it!
i will not go into detail about these two paintings. but they do have something in common. they celebrate the the lives of two tiny babies. and i was in tears and in praise to the Lord as i was painting them. for He alone is the provider of all comfort. thanks be to Him that He includes me in His work.

crunch met some PRECIOUS girls from Jackson and immediately captured their hearts. they were so sweet to him. he got all of the hugs! making their 12 year old boy "friends" very jealous.
before we left he had also drawn a cross in the air and told them that Jesus died on the cross, then came BACK TO LIFE!
PS. look closely at his gloved hand! he did that on his own...hope we don't have a "playa" on our hands! but, for sure an evangelist!
