Little Bits of Excitement..

I'm posting this in a real hurry and so won't have time to add much. I can't seem to upload any new pics to the site right now coz I cannot locate the thingie that transfers files from camera to computer. Que sad!

For the time being though, I am pretty excited to report that I will be featured in an upcoming issue of New Zealand's HER Magazine! It's all the way over on the other side of the world but I'm so thrilled! I will post more info. and details as soon as I get them..

Have a great week everyone.
xoxo with love.

Progress Painting

I am working on a series of shoe/dress paintings for next week but continuing to do some personal work as well. These are some progress pics of a painting that I was working on for a juried competition. Somehow, I thought the deadline was not until the following Friday (turns out it was yesterday) and so even though I worked through the night, I was unable to get this one completed. Regardless, I should have it completed by this weekend and can use it for something else (I hope!). The theme was Ontario based and I wanted it to have a fall feeling as well...

Happy Long Thanksgiving weekend to all the Canucks!

xoxo with love.

I absolutely love fashion blogs and one of my daily faves is Couture Carrie. I recently did a custom illustration for her site featuring Tolani scarves. Check out Carrie's great fashionista tips and must have wardrobe essentials (and my illo) at: Couture Carrie.

I'm also trying to finish up a painting for an art competition here in Toronto. Of course the deadline is this afternoon and I have hours to go before I can submit anything I'm happy with. Plus I have to rush to work this evening. Um so in a nutshell, I won't be able to submit the piece that I wanted to and will have to send in something older.

xoxo with Love.

The start of all things shoes..

So sorry that I have been MIA for so long but after that last art show, I've been scrambling with picking up extra shifts at work and trying to keep up with my commissions on the side. I'm exhausted (what else is new) and I was supposed to set up for a solo show this weekend but I'm terribly behind and so that will have to wait till after Thanksgiving (Canadian date). For the next little while, I will be posting scans of my "SHOE" series of paintings. Actually, I may throw in some dresses on mannequins into the mix, but for the most part it will be just shoes! FUN, FUN, FUN!

Hope you are all well out there in Blog land..I will start to post on a regular basis from now on.

xoxo with love.
