I Painted A Rock!

You may have noticed that I have done little to no new artwork over the past 10 months or so, other than making fused glass "wishing stars". There are three contributing reasons, all intertwined:  1) My sweetie and I became caregivers and roommates to a family member with Alzheimer's; 2) It was discovered in late summer that my thyroid and vitamin D levels were seriously low; and 3) I may be experiencing the dreaded creative burnout after 35 straight years of making my living as an artisan-craftsman.

The good news for 2015 is that I am feeling better!

And as part of a continuing effort to recharge my creative juices, I picked up some beach rocks at the Oregon coast last Friday and thought I'd try my hand at rock painting.  Here is my first effort... hope you like it!

I want these rocks to be safe for outdoor gardens, so I am experimenting with waterproof sealants. Once I'm satisfied, I may add a few of these to my Etsy shop down the road...

Nirvana In A Box

Forget about that quest for eternal happiness as you search high and low for the perfect pair of shoes. It's not about the shoes.  It's all about the SHOE BOX! I've searched high and low and behold: I've found the perfect fit... 

Just the right size 
AND the perfect color too. 
Welcome to my little slice of heaven.
