Painting a Day Project: #87

Going back to my collage & ephemera roots today for fun! I recently sold this little piece & it reminded me to try another globe....I have plenty to choose from in Mindy's Museum of Odd & Unnecessary Objets & feeling that wanderlust & travel bug...xo 

"Globe", 24x24", acrylic & mixed media.

"Sail on Silver Girl, 
Sail on by 
Your time has come to shine 
All your dreams are on their way 

See how they shine 
If you need a friend 
I'm sailing right behind 
Like a bridge over troubled water 
I will ease your mind 
Like a bridge over troubled water 
I will ease your mind"
Simon & Garfunkel

"Silver Girl", 8x10"

Painting a Day Project: #85

Who doesn't love a canary yellow punch buggy? Makes me smile & laugh just thinking about these funny rides, conjuring memories of my first car, a 1970 banana yellow VW convertible, a car so adorable & so dysfunctional I needed to buy a second scrap heep VW just for parts!!!!!! True story.

And yes, I misspelled "medecine" and will re-do. Lol. xo

Painting a Day Project: #84

My dear friends Michael & Albert of ElizabethW in San Francisco have requested more San Francisco imagery for their shop. Not only do I Heart SF, I Heart requests like that so I'm on it! First of a series: sailboats, rowboats, docks & cappuccinos sitting on the dock of the bay coming up. Happy Saturday. xo

"Hark, now hear the sailors cry,
Smell the sea and feel the sky,
Let your soul and spirit fly, into the mystic..."

"I Heart SF", 16x20", acrylic on canvas.

Painting a Day Project: #83

Aqua typewriters & vintage wallpaper are two of my favorite things. Dug through some vintage ephemera today & found rolls & sheets of fabulous wallpaper that I've been "saving", for what, who knows, but got them messy & had fun tonight. Feeling sentimental, a little homesick but grateful for the small quirky things that I love. "I Keep Your Letters", 8x10", acrylic. xo

“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.”

Painting a Day Project: #82

It's my Nana's 95th birthday coming up (95! hello good genes, fingers crossed she's sharing!) & I've been playing with her palette, imagery & ephemera she's fond of in hopes of putting a little artistic birthday care pack together for her. "Les trois fleurs": vintage french ephemera & acrylics, 5x7". xo
