art ~ paintings & more

WOO HOO!


I’m sooooo excited that I finally got the credit card option working on my website. It’s amazing how long it took me to figure out all the coding options, but rather than bore you with the details, I just want to celebrate :)

  • During the month of May all online orders will receive a FREE 8″ x 10″ print of your choice.
  • I created a specials page and talked my husband into releasing one of my original paintings ( many of you know that he hoards my artwork, which is so sweet, but he’s finally ready to make a change ).
  • If you have any questions on how to place an order or want to place a custom order, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email, I’ll get right back to you.

You can browse the photo gallery to see the many prints for sale or choose a photo from a blog post. If you’re not in the mood to buy, but want to have a print out of some spring inspiration, I made a PDF of the above collage. You can download it for FREE here.

Thanks so much for your patience and interest in my work. It’s been fun to have so many of you motivate me to make it more available.

Grateful,
Christine

P.S. The first person to place a credit card order will get a fun surprise :)

Poem Time


Writing a poem is discovering. ~ Robert Frost 

Did you know April is national poetry month? I thought it would be fun to squeeze in a Photo Poem this last day of the month. If you’re new to creating a photo poem here, check out the guidance here or here. If your old hat, have at it …

I found this great link of 3o ways to celebrate poetry. I want to do all 3o, who’s up for doing a few with me? I’ll add my poem to the comments, I can’t wait to read yours!

Art & Answers


Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. ~ Thomas Merton

I had so much fun reading all of your answers to my 5 questions. Thanks for sharing. My sweet friend Shea asked me to share my answers, so here goes.

1. What did you have for breakfast today?

I love breakfast it’s my favorite meal. I wake up hungry. Today I got up and ate a cookie,  I don’t do this often but it’s kind of fun sometimes. For my real breakfast, I made a mixture of granola, frozen organic raspberries, and plain Chobani yogurt. Have you had Chobani yogurt it is so yummy. I also made a delicious pot of black tea, I have a collection of tea leaves … assam, darjeeling, breakfast blends etc. I think tea is one of my favorite foods.

2. Do you have any spring time rituals?

I did not think I had any spring time rituals when I asked you the question, I was looking forward to your answers so I could create some, I want more ritual in my life. As I read your answers, I realized that I actually have one . My husbands birthday is in May,  each year I create 20 cards for him. Someone told me once that Sufi’s celebrate their birthdays for 20 days, 10 days before and 10 days after. I loved the idea and have tried to adopt a version of this ritual in my life.

3. What’s your favorite new song or podcast?

I enjoyed finding and listening to each of your new songs/podcasts. Isn’t it amazing that we can so easily pull up an audio or video file so fast and for free! I’m newly obsessed with ‘Florence + The Machine – Dog Days Are Over’, it’s not a new song, just one I’m  listening to lately, here’s a link if you’re interested.

4. How was your weekend?

I had a great weekend filled with hiking, photographing, and painting :)

5. What are you going to create this week?

I’m going to get the credit card option working on my website, it’s one of the last details that is driving me crazy. And I’m working on my circle paintings, I’m having so much fun in the studio :))) I tend to work on many art projects at the same time, I think it’s the nature of mixed media, as I wait for layers to dry, I move to another project. Here is a sneek peek, a little sliver of 3 ‘work in progress’ paintings.

These are last years cards for my husband. I’m working on his new batch for this May’s ritual, but I can’t share them yet, he tends to read my blog.
