While taking a walk one day, a nearby church was having a yard sale and was selling all kinds of old stuff to raise money for the school. There were two old metal elementary school desks sitting there with a price tag of $10 each so I offered the guy $10 for the two and he said yes. Now, having two little guys in the family who are each turning two, one in November and the other in December, I decided to buy the desks and transform them into customized birthday gifts. The one little guys birthday party was yesterday and he loves Nemo so… here are the before and after pictures of the customized Nemo character desk.
Needless to say the little guy loves his new Nemo desk!
Desk number two transformation will be along soon. Enjoy!
Bringing in the New Year and celebrating the opening of the new Star Wars movie, “The Force Awakens”, I did a tribute painting to the number one villain of the Star Wars series, Lord Vader. This is a 16 x 20 acrylic painting on canvas.
Birthday party fun had by all with the Mickey Mouse photo cutout board. This board measured 3 feet by 4 feet and again I used acrylic paint and included Mickey, Chip and Pluto. And the photo cutout board continued… into the Christmas holiday with an even larger birthday party/Christmas display board of the Grinch. This board measured 6 feet wide by 4 feet tall and included the Grinch, Cindy Loo Who and Max.
More to come…enjoy!
Birthday party fun had by all with the Little Mermaid photo cutout board. The board is 30 x 48 inches and I first painted the background blue then hand painted the Little Mermaid and Flounder with acrylic paint. I then added glitter paint to the fin for added sparkle!
Hand painted acrylic on glass.
Ditto Cats. Enjoy!

Happy New Year!
To kick off the new year I started and completed this painting of the very sexy and colorful Lenny Kravitz.
I recently came upon a black and white photograph of a Himba boy of Namibia. Not sure of what I was even reading online that day, but you know the internet…one article leads to something else and so on and so on. But the boys facial expression was so captivating I thought that it would make a great painting. So Sunday I began painting the boy from the photograph on a 16 x 20 canvas and here is the finished piece.
I hope you are as captivated as I was with this young boys expression.
Uncle Sam is portrayed as a blood-sucking vampire wanting you to want to give more. The protesting citizens are in silhouette each holding a sign in protest of the exorbitant amount of taxes, liberties and freedom each will reluctantly relinquish.
I Want you to Want to Give more
Don’t forget to drop a quart of blood off on election day, your freedom depends on it!
