Let us light the house in summertime

with the glow of christmas lights.

To remind us

of those cold wintry nights,

when we long

for the sun

to warm

our souls.

small creations


3″x 3″ mixed media tiny canvas collages

I created these hilarious little cat pieces today. They were a lot of fun to make, as I created them quite quickly and without too much thought. In a few days they will be for sale, amongst other original art, prints, and pendants of my work. I am sharing a table with a few co-workers for a First Thursday Art Walk here in Portland, Oregon. Hopefully I won’t melt from this rare extreme summer weather we are experiencing here in the Pacific Northwest. Despite the heat, it should be a lot of fun!
