My art is a reflection of who I am and how I got here. Having always been a country girl, I appreciate all things great and small in my life and environment. I strive to reflect overlooked objects and little things in day-to-day life in my artwork. I hope that my work will instill an appreciation for the beauty found in the simple things that surround us all in our every day lives.

Too Hot to Handle
I hope everyone affected by the snow made it safely through! It was pretty though! I got stranded with my 7 month old Grandbaby and had to leave my car but luckily a relative of sorts was behind me in a four wheel drive so she took us to my daughter and we made it safely to her house.
I've had 'Too Hot to Handle'finished for quite awhile but I wasn't quite satisfied with it so I made some changes. I put more folds in the cloth therefore changing the design on the cloth and changed the background to more blue than black. I like it better but what's your opinion. This is the second blog with the stages but I wanted to post them again with the final version. I've entered it and 'Keen on Jelly Beans' in the Transparent Watercolor Society Exhibition so I'm anxiously waiting to see if one of them gets in. This is my first time enter the TWSA. I hope you enjoy the different stages of 'Too Hot to Handle". Some of the pictures were taken with my phone and the lighting is different in them.
