The life of an artist family!


We're always making something around here!Seriously, anything that is solid color is fair game for use as a canvas. From the mailbox to shoes to the wall or scraps of wood. It's how we've always been! This week, Patrick is making paintings for a customer and he makes his own frames as well. But instead of regular wood, he uses yardsticks!

As for me, I collect all kinds of knickknacks and use them in my shrines and collage art.

Coming up we have workshops, book signings, tutorial videos, business advice, another cruise, plus a trip called "Crafty London" in 2012...

Three new paintings, two boxes

This weekend Patrick is finishing up three new paintings for a customer. He doesn't just paint them anymore, now he builds the frames too! We've had requests for 8x10s for the store, Patrick is working on those next!
