It's My Little Blog Birthday...

Can't believe this blog has been around for two years now.

I originally started this blog after I discovered other naive and folk artists on the web. This brought back my love of creating art, and a desire to share what I do in my own little art bubble with others. Well, she is growing to encompass my love of reading and my desire to share this as well. And I'm loving it.

I've been threatening to share some recent paintings, but I've allowed my lack of a good camera be my excuse for not doing so regularly. I do, though, have a scanner... So no more excuses.

This is Violet. Mixed media on canvas.

I painted her late last year. I had originally intended to make her angry, but she just turned out... not. I worked on her live on Blonde Roots Productions' show on blogtv. (Thank you, beautiful Chandra!)

On the subject of blogtv, I would also like to thank the lovely and talented Karina at Smallflower Sings. On her anniversary show, I was fortunate enough to win a blogtv pro account playing lyrics trivia.

Chandra and Karina usually do weekend shows on blogtv. Please visit them. They're amazing.

In the last post I mentioned a wee surprise...

Somehow I ended up with two copies of Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler.

Weeeeeelllll... I love this book so much that I'd really like to pass my second copy on to someone who really wants to read it. Here's what we'll do... You leave a comment with your email, and I'll draw a random winner on Saturday, January 30th.


(I hope so because this book is really funny and there's warmth and sexy and Jane rocks.)

This is my small way of saying thank you for being there. I can't wait to see what the next year will bring.
