New Blog Banner

The name of this blog is Art and banner obviously refers to the more part.

Latest Painting

This is a painting of a valley near Jackson, Wyoming. This one was hard to give birth to...I think maybe much like birthing triplets. I believe it is done. I will put it away for a while. So I can look at it with a new eye later down the road. At that time I should be able to see any major flaws..and hopefully correct them.

Charm Necklace

There are some Charm necklaces in Belle Amoire magazine. The Sept/Oct 2007 issue. I loved them the first time I saw them. Sooooo, after I received all of those wonderful charms from the swap on FDA, I had to make one. What do you think?

Charm Swap

Judi W. organized our Charm Swap on FDA. In Which Judi had the job of receiving the charms form all of us and then mailing them all out. Big Job in my opinion. Thank you Judi.
I have always heard if you want something done ask a "busy person!" Judi proves this is true.

I hope you can read the names attached to each charm. The purple one on the bottom left is the work Of Sandra Walker. The face charm on the upper right hand corner belongs to Jacque Uetz. The square one at the bottom right Kerry. I believe the shell shaped one at the bottom right is the work of Sherry Goshon.

I am very happy and feel privelaged to have been in this swap. Thank you my FDA friends.

I love sunsets! Especially when they have pink clouds. I took this picture (Oh, I should tell you which picture.... the blog Banner picture) while riding down I64. I was surprised how well it turned out considering I took it through the windshield at 70 miles an hour. I've changed the banner so I put the picture here.

Another RR recipe Journal

This one belongs to Anita. I have to say this is my favorite one to date. I've said that about some other ones too!!! I used some dyes (that was fun), velum, card stock, beads, ribbon, and brads. I really like the simplicity of this one.
