Just back from a successful trip to the coast

My sweetie and I ventured to the Northern California coast to collect photographs for the pendants we make together this week. We found many lovely flowers to capture in a flower test garden in Gilroy, CA. Then we drove up the coast where we took some gorgeous photos of the ocean. One picture of a lighthouse I'm planning to paint for our room. As photographed, the lighthouse is just beyond a feild of yellow flowers. Many wildflowers are in bloom right now adding a colorful accent to the already rich colors of the beaches and cliffs. And, of course, a little romance adds to the fun of everything! I'll get some photos on my facebook page soon.

made a major artistic purchase today!

I scored a wonderful set of tools and supplies for making stained glass! Thankfully, a gentleman in El Dorado decided to let go of his stained glass supplies and quite a bit of glass, too. Soon I'll have specialty charms and peices to offer in my ETSY store. With a 2 year goal in mind, I hope to be making half my income from my art. Art has long been my love, passion, and fun! I look forward ot sharing that sense of whimsy.

a good day of balance

I started with massage work this morning and had a wonderful lunch with my buddy Jim C. Then, my sweetie Jim and I went shopping for cool goodies. I've got two new canvases to start painting with and supplies for making jewelry, too! What a wonderful day. Ah, balance.
