Something Wickedly Warped this way comes...

The other day, I was bored out of my mind....actually, no, that isn't right.  My mind was flooded by a flurry of creative ideas.  Honest to God, it was like a download on a computer.  I couldn't stop the pace.  I love when that happens, and hate it at the same time.  So many wonderful things are on the to do list for 2013.  I plan to get started as soon as possible.  In the meantime, I was fooling around with some distortion affects on my computer.  I came up with some really cool images that I have decided to call Wickedly Warped Art.  I plan on making prints of these for sale.  I have a few already listed in my etsy shop.  Not all are swirly.   It was so much fun, and it gave me such a different perspective of my artwork.  Hope you like what I've done.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or whatever it is you may celebrate.  I had a wonderful Christmas this year.  Things are beginning to quiet back down, and as always with this time of year, I begin to think about next year.  What do I want to create?  What do I want to do?  Actually, I've come to realize those questions are simple.  I ask them of myself all the time.  The true questions have always been a bit more complex.  For years, the big question was who am I?  I didn't realize the voyage of self-discovery was taking place until I was knee deep into it, and then I suddenly realized I was changing and growing.  Of course, my art began to change as well.  The later half of this year became about...what am I?  My job situation changed dramatically this past year.  It will change again June 2013, as unemployment is looming ahead.  I'll admit I am a bit unnerved.  I'm not sure what do with myself.  What do I do next?  Where do I go from here?  Everyone says...well, you will have more time to focus on your art.  True.  But, art needs to pay the bills.  So, once again, I am riding the wave to see where it will take me.  I'm ready.  In the meantime, here are a few Wee Whimsy creations. The first is called Kisstletoe.  The second is called, Gift.  The last is a work in progress, and it is called Waiting. The last seems appropriate.  Blessings to one and all!!!

Have a holly jolly mushroom....

And....another 6 months have officially gotten away from me.  Sorry folks.  I've been quite busy with art and shows this year.  Hoping I can get better at blogging.  It is so difficult to find a few minutes in the day.  Several creations have come and gone.  I will just add my most recent work in keeping with the upcoming holidays.  I just finished a Santa Shroom ink and watercolor image.  This little guy is based on my line of sculptures I created a few years back.  I decided to do a bit of 2D art. I've also added a new Whimsy.  This one is a Wish Whimsy.  Prints are available through my etsy store at, and if you visit my website, you will be directed to other merchandise that is available.  I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone who continuously supports my art.  Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement, and your generosity.  It means a great deal to me.  Magical blessings for a wonderful Holiday and Joyous New Year!!!!
