Happy Art, Happy Garden Art

Hi Everyone ;o) Happy day to you ;o) I hope you're all well ;o)
I finished a painting, called "Happy" ;o) It's 8" x 10" on canvas. Enjoy ;o)
Doesn't she look happy? I think she does ;o)

I've been having fun creating something for our garden, when Spring/Summer gets here ;o) Mom had a broken chair downstairs. I asked if I could put it outside. She said sure ;o) So, all of you know of my gargoyle I have protecting one side of our backyard. Well, I got two friendly Skulls, to protect the other side ;o) I spray painted a piece of wood hot pink, to place the skulls on top of. This will all be sitting on top of the chair. Then I made a sign to place above the skulls. I got the sign idea, from Willow! (If you haven't been to Willow's blog, I would highly recommend it!) I set everything up, as to what it would look like outside. Mom started laughing! I hope everyone does! You got to have fun! Life is too short ;o) I hope all of you get a good laugh ;o) (click on the pics to make them bigger)

I can't wait to set this up outside! The squirrels are going to have fun! LOL!
Big Hugs ;o)

Winner, Thanks Kim and New Crow Painting

Hi Everyone ;o)
Hope you had a great weekend ;o)
I want to thank you all for coming by on The Hues Of Oz Celebration, and, I want to say thanks to Oma Linda, for a great blog party ;o) I had a lot of fun ;o)

I wish I could give you all something, but I can't! Sorry! You know I will have more giveaways ;o) The winner of the painting is ...................Laurie from, I Loved A Cloudy Day ;o) Yeh Laurie ;o)

Before you go, I would like to share with you two more things ;o) First, I would like to thank Kim, for the beautiful Easter wreath I won ;o) Love it Kim! I loved the card too ;o) Big Hugs ;o)
I also finished a 9" x 12" painting ;o) As you know, many of times when I paint a certain theme, it's for a reason. This one, is because, when I've been mediating, I have been seeing fire come out of my hands. It has been a very powerful experience for me. I was going to paint the crow, with fire coming out of his wings, but then I thought, the fire is coming from inside. The soul. So, this is what I painted instead ;o) Enjoy ;o)
"The Fire Within"
"Courage and Strength"
"Let The Light Within You Shine Bright"
Big Hugs ;o) Keep On Shining ;o)

Hues Of Oz 2014

Hi Everyone ;o) Welcome to Oma Linda's "Hues Of Oz" blog party ;o)

When Oma Linda, announced this year's theme for the party, I was really excited! I started seeing all the colors in the Wizard Of Oz. For those of you who don't know me, welcome. I paint crows ;o) So you will see all my characters as crows ;o) Click on the pics to make them bigger ;o)
The first thing that came to me, was Dorothy's dress ;o)
Next was the Yellow Brick Road ;o)
Then I thought for awhile. I couldn't put everything in this painting, so the next thought was of  Glinda, The Good Witch ;o)
Of course, I had to include The Wicked Witch Of The West ;o)
The painting was almost finished, but I had to put one more important item, The Ruby Slippers ;o) When I finished the slippers, I added extra sparkle on to the yellow brick road and on to the Wicked Witch Of The West ;o) I also added a heart, because "There's No Place Like Home" ;o)
(Please note, the sun was not shining, when I took the last pictures. I hope you get a good idea of the painting!)
"Showing the Sparkle"
This painting is 8" x 8" and the sides are 1.5" thick, which means it doesn't have to hang on a wall, it can be placed on a shelf or table ;o) It can be placed anywhere for your enjoyment ;o) The reason I am telling you this, is because I am giving it away ;o) I know it's a larger painting, but I really wanted to put a lot of detail in it ;o) If you would like this painting, please tell me in your comment ;o) You have to say, you want it! If not, you won't be entered. The winner will be announced on Monday March 24th ;o) Big Hugs and enjoy the party ;o)

Sneak Peak, Story, Johnny

Hi Everyone ;o)
I was going to show you some new art today, but when I looked at the pictures, they were just too bright! The sun was really reflecting off the snow!
I will give you a sneak peak of one ;o)
We had another major snow storm! But, then we are warming up, but getting really cold again! Maybe I won't be cutting the grass this summer? LOL!

Many of you asked about this painting, and if there was a story behind it?
I was touched by how many of you reacted to this painting.
I actually wasn't thinking about a person who passed away. I was thinking about how through the years, I have been hurt, by some people. And, it was funny, the same situation seemed to keep repeating its self every few years. They say, the same things will happen over and over again, until you get the message! Well, I got the message! I shed some tears, on to this skull, buried it, and let go of the pain. In order to let the new in, you have to let go of the old! And, that's what I did ;o) This is what this painting means to me ;o)

I have to leave you all with a smile ;o)
My bloggy friend Joan, sent me this picture ;o)
"Johnny The Artist"
Sorry the picture isn't bigger, but you can go to this link, to see the picture better ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)

An Amazing Story

Hi Everyone ;o)
Before I write this story, I want to say, please don't ever doubt, that when you send energy out onto this beautiful earth, that it doesn't get received.
It could be a smile to someone you walk by. It could be healing prayers to someone on blog land, that you have never met. The other person will feel what you have put out! I promise you!

It was the last week of February. The 22nd. I was upstairs cleaning my bedroom. I had my music on very loud! I heard my brother yelling, but I wasn't sure if it was for me, so I kept cleaning! Bad sister I am! LOL! Then he yelled again! So I answered this time ;o) Phone ;o) I run downstairs and answer.

Stacy, it's Robin! Robin?? Robin who? (I'm thinking, I don't know a Robin!) Robin, from blog land!
I almost dropped the phone! LOL!

Before I go any further, I have to say, Robin's husband has been suffering for over a year now! It started out at the beginning of 2013! He is still going through so much!
Around Valentine's Day, of this year, mom and I were out. We both thought, we should send something to Robin, to let her know, we are thinking of her and her family! We spotted this little porcelain bear. I think on the bottom of it, it said, "Take Care of Yourself","Someone Loves You". Mom and I both thought, this is perfect and got it! We wrapped it up and sent it off ;o)

Now fast forward to Robin's phone call. Robin, says, Stacy, I hope you don't mind me looking you up! I had to call you, an e-mail wouldn't do. (My mind is really thinking now!)

She says, she has been having nightmares about bears. Bears running after her, bears breaking into the house. All making her very scared. (I thought, oh great, we just sent her a bear!)

Robin's son took his mom's dreams as a sign. Bear was coming to Robin for a reason. Maybe her totem animal. He said, when you go to sleep, make peace with the bear, be friends. This didn't work for Robin, the dreams were still very scary!

Then Robin's son said, ask bear to send you a sign!
Guess what? Not even a day later, my present arrives!!!!

I almost started crying! I did actually! I was so happy we sent that little bear!

This world is such a small place! We all are truly connected! Keep shining bright everyone! Keep sending out love!
Robin's hubby is still not doing well! If you have a moment in your day, send out some good healing energy to him ;o)
Big Hugs xoxoxo

Winner and New Baby Crow Painting

Hi Everyone ;o)
Happy March ;o)
The winner of the "Grow Strong" painting is, Terry ;o) Yeh Terry ;o) Please e-mail me your address again ;o)
Many of you have asked, how can I paint so many paintings, in a week? Well, I don't have kids. I don't watch that much t.v. and I don't have a special person in my life. So, when my paintings call, I paint! LOL!

I just finished a 9" x 12" canvas painting of my baby crows. I know all of you like to see the painting in progress, so here we go ;o) (click on pics to make them bigger)
My babies take a lot of time. First they start off all black, and then they become blue. That's when I put the eye in.
Next comes charcoal stripes.
Black stripes.
Then the process starts again ;o)
The finished painting, "Believe" ;o)
Some close ups ;o) The wings took me a long time, but I had fun ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)
