This is the Beginning

New Years was not a happy time in my life but I was determined that I would at least try to start it out on the right track.  I grabbed  up my brushes and what few art paints I had and a big ole piece of  salvaged plywood saved from a packing crate at work.  Most of my paints were dried out and useless but I did have a big box of oops sample wall paints from Home Depot that I had been picking up for my daughters after school art classes. 
I had done a lot of hiking in the fall and decided to do an impressionistic painting of the woods were I hiked. 
This one has found a permanent home in my living room. 
Since then I've created a few more items and have lots of ideas floating trough my brain. 
I'll be working on furniture and home decor items and some funky paper mache pieces along with paintings here and there. 
Since my other blog was originally about my gardens and photography I decided to start a new blog for some of my other passions. Who knows how many blogs I'll end up with.


  1. Lots of impressionism I wasn't to impressed. This is really really neat. I love it.... it looks and feel like my woods. :) Good luck with your new blog.

  2. Thanks for your comment on my dresser makeover. Your painting looks great, that is not a skill I have. Nice job!

  3. Ooohh....I'm gonna love this blog Carol! Lovely painting!!
