Equine Flirtations....

....so I was at the Maryland State Fair this summer and this horse was making eyes at me from his stall. He was so darn cute. So shy but flirtatous. I had my camera on hand and decided to capture a picture of him and later I decided I wanted to do an ACEO. He's in watercolors and available in my Etsy shop.

50 degrees & HAPPY ART!

It's going to be 50 degrees today. I don't do cold very well....I want to get outside today so I thought I should blog early. It makes me think of spring...I can hardly wait for spring.......

I was twittering around over the past day or so trying to find my way around there and I found a most interesting person. She's a graphics artist/illustrator from Mexico and has the most adorable work in her etsy shop. Here is one of the pieces of her work...painted silk. How lovely.

I was curious about her because she had half her twittering in english and half in spanish.....it got my attention. So I'm glad I found her etsy shop and I know you will enjoy it to...her work is whimsical and happy and fits in with my spring mentality today. So go visit my new friend Degdie....here's the link to her shop http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5538620
