Bettie Page "Angel Eyes"

I posted this on the Etsy Dark Side blog too. I thought I would share it on my blog as well.

I did this piece for a show I will be participating in next month. I became so inspired to paint Bettie that I have completed 4 more pieces and am currently working on 3 more!

This piece is entitled "Angel Eyes" and is acrylic on wood.

The Dark Knight - Don't Come Home Without It!

For as long as my boyfriend and I have been together he has never really bought me flowers. That's ok. I'm not really the buy-me-flowers type of girl. Instead, Randy shows his love by buying me DVDs I want.

Last night I told him that he was not allowed to come home until he purchased The Dark Knight for me. I got a phone call from him before I left work. He told me that the places he had gone to had sold out of it, but that he was going to keep looking. He told me to just go home and he would be home when he found it.

Whenever Randy buys me a DVD he always comes up with clever ways to present it to me. One time he hid one in the glovebox of my car, another time he hid one in the visor of my car. There was another time he told me he couldn't afford to buy me what I wanted and when he was sure I was convinced of this, he pulled the DVD out of his backpack. Sometimes he runs out of ideas, like the time I came home and found one propped up against the TV.

Anyway, I pulled up to my house and noticed that he was already home. SUCCESS! However when I opened the door he was no where to be found. A couple seconds later, my dog Wanda comes running down the hall wearing her sweater. Attached to her was a present! What could it be?! Of course I knew what it was, but the way Randy presented my gift really just topped his other attempts at surprising me with DVDs.

I love him. He rocks and he is an awesome boyfriend.

KLEMMFEST @ Hyaena Gallery

3 more sales this month!

I am stoked! I've made 3 more sales this month. 2 more on Etsy and one at Muddy Waters (where my art was still hanging for the Noche de Los Muertos show). I went to go pick up my pieces and was thrilled to find someone had bought another piece after the art reception.

Then I logged onto Etsy this morning to find I had made another sale yesterday. That makes a total of 4 sales this month! WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! I am very excited. I have been working very hard on my store the last week or so and trying to promote my art more. It looks like its paying off.

The Black Cat is going to a new home

I really don't spend as much time on beefing up and promoting my Etsy store like I would like to. So whenever I make a sale its just such a wonderful feeling.

I sold The Black Cat piece I had made for a benefit show last February. I am very excited because I put a lot of time into the piece and I was disappointed when no one bought it. So now its finally going to a new home!

Slowing Down

My brain has slowed down and I am feeling burnt out again. I have a benefit show to do and I have 2 pieces to come up with. I am looking forward to it, but I think I need to give my brain a rest again. This happens every couple of months and it drives me crazy. I think I just need to refuel my mind. I am hoping my hiatus isn't as long as it was last time, but I definitely feel the need to rest for a bit.
