You are in the seat beside me…

You are in my dreams at night…

Listening to music inspires,  song Josh McBride by The Head and the Heart was on repeat today, contributed to the vision for this creation, day 8 of the             100 artworks challenge.

Mixed media, 9×9″ wood plaque, decorative cut paper, acrylic paint, 3-Dimentional paint,


Piece together

Sometimes the process of doing can be more therapeutic than the completion of the product. As I tore the decorative paper in pieces and glued it randomly on the board, at that moment I realized we may be torn on the inside but it would be alright, we can be fixed, one imperfect piece at a time.

Mixing it up

Day 3 of 100 artworks challenge  Mixed media art

In my attempts to create art today I was scattered in thought and thus couldn’t begin my project. Decided to recycle an old watercolor sketch I found as I went through my papers. I sliced and diced the sketch and incorporated the piece into my project. Amongst the clutter of discarded art can be something reimagined, be open to new possibilities.

Window painting

A different creative outlet for me,  having  accomplished various artistic jobs throughout the years, I never thought window painting would be one of them. Recently I had the opportunity to paint a  party theme on a pair of windows  at the Pizza Villa in  New Jersey.  I conducted a little research before I started, and was surprised to find out that acrylic paints work best. I thought painting on a window was going to be a challenge, but I took it slow and it worked out great. Going with what the owner wanted and sharing some of my own ideas this is what I painted.


It was fun to paint a window,  I would definitely do it again.

Great place and good food:  Pizza Villa is located  at 901 White Horse Pike, Haddon Twp, NJ 856-854-4400
