Redbubble has introduced a slew of new products in 2019 and among my favorites would have to be the new throw blankets. I love them.

My adventure into self publishing a coloring book for adults is now a month old. I am as proud of The Classy Lady’s Coloring Book today as I was when I first conceived the notion in early January and completed the project in February, ready to publish. Continue reading →
I have been working on a new super secret project since January 3rd and I cannot believe today is the last day of the month already. I am so engrossed in the art that some mornings I wake as early as 2 a.m. because I want to get back at it and simply cannot sleep when Continue reading →
I woke up very excited this morning! Couldn’t wait to get back to it.
I am not used to painting in such a small scale. When working with my preferred medium, acrylic paint, my favorite canvas size is 16″ x 20″ or 11″ x 14″. Sizing down to 6 inches by 4 1/2 is a learning experience.
Oddly enough, I am enjoying this scaled down paper canvas with my tiny brush. Which just goes to prove that moving out of one’s comfort level can often be a moment to embrace.
I so desperately want this to be good. So it will sell. But not for me. This one is to help someone else. All money raised during the exhibition will go to Art Division, a nonprofit (501)(c)3 organization dedicated to training and supporting underserved youth (18-25) in L.A.’s Rampart District. I want this little postcard to be good enough to raise money to fund Art Division. I NEED this little postcard to grab someone’s heart so together we can perhaps heal a young artist’s soul.
Thomas Kinkade, the prolific painter of bucolic and idealized scenes who estimated that his mass-produced works hung in one out of 20 American homes, died on Friday at his home in Los Gatos, Calif. He was 54.
Though often disdained by the fine art establishment, Mr. Kinkade built a decorative art empire by creating sentimental paintings that were, for the most part, relatively inexpensive and resonated with the desires of homeowners who did not ordinarily buy art. He sold his work directly, through his own franchise galleries or on cable television home shopping networks, and eventually online.
His works were reproduced in books and on posters, canvas prints, hand-signed lithographs and collector’s plates. He likened himself to Norman Rockwell and Walt Disney, insofar as all three “really like to make people happy,” he once said. Many of Mr. Kinkade’s paintings captured scenes from Disney.
