Oscar Martinez

Oh Oscar, how do love the??? The Best thing about the internet is the ability to browse. My God!!! The spectrum of art is mind boggling! I can literally sit for 8-10 hours and  just jump from site to site. I’m developing a healthy respect for current contemporary artists. I used to feel their art was too subtle for me, but now…

Oscar Martinez is a current fav!!! I love everything about his art!!!


There is not one single piece on his site that I don’t covet. I hope you’ll visit him!!

Sunday Visitors

Tristyn, little boy lost and alone most of the time was thrilled to have company this weekend. Janice’s friend brought her little boy Jude over to play. They are both car boys so it was Grand Prix mayhem in here!!!!

Tristyn was a really good boy this past weekend. Tammy promised him WWE, we don't have WWE here just local little wrestling. He LOVED it!!!

My big girl is 28 today!!! Isn't she lovely???


Art Friday-Edgar Degas

A favorite of mine. Mostly he intrigued me as he was often referred to as “the Invisible Man”. In an era rife with foppish painters he was slow and steady and a gentleman. And his quiet art shows that. I, like everyone else love the Ballerinas. What’s not to love…




But everyone forgets his beautiful nudes. Paintings he described as”painfully uncomfortable” to paint. I think these are his sneaky bests!



The colors are just perfect!! And here are his even lesser known landscapes. He said in a letter to his mother that” I am quite unsure why ANYONE would paint landscapes. There is no real life or movement in them”  He was wrong…



If just one day, I could paint like this, I might give everything else away!

He’s always been a fav, so you can guess that during a spur of the moment trip to New Orleans, when Andy and I got stuck staying in his childhood home, I was thrilled. It was a hideous mess, they were remodeling it and we literally had to move debris out of our room, but I loved it!!! And I stole tons of crystals from his chandelier. they were going to THROW THEM AWAY!!!!! Retards. I have them in my studio to help keep me motivated!


We stayed right on the top floor in the front rooms. The Windows are so tall you can open them and walk out on the balcony. ( where I met a vampire<G>).

Valentines day LOVE!!!

Yesterday we were invited to a Grandparents Valentines Day Program at Tristyns School. And it was adorable! Only Kindergarteners and their parents and grandparents. It was'nt crowded and much more enjoyable than the Christmas program! The kids sang 5 songs and had some small speaking parts, the whole thing took 30 minutes. Then they took us to the cafeteria for breakfast(donut holes and drinks) It was great. The only sad note were the three little pockets of kids with no family present. That made me really sad! Here's the pics.

Friday Art- Graffiti

This is a no link post. I just love this art form and wanted to share it! My question to you is: Do you love or hate it???



We live in a town that goes apeshit over it. Every little mark is hunted down and eradicated. I think why??? I mean walls are really PLAIN and UGLY!!!  Dress them up. I love it. I love the days Tristyn and I sit and watch the trains and share the art!   If your lucky enough to have it where you live, i HOPE you enjoy it!

I needed a little Spring!


My crocheting blitz is still in high gear but I needed to put down the brown! So I’m working on some Prayer Shawls for my Spirit Jumper girls. (solids, not these two colors together)<G>

Tristyn and I made a quick trip to Toy hell the other day to buy his hunk of junk omnitrex, but I think the only thing worth buying there is their Shopping Totes. They are beautiful and functional and my favs from anywhere. And at $1.49, a hella bargain. I have a ton of these but here are my new ones!!!





019 (my fav!!!)

Dads test came back

NO CANCER!!!  Just  spots to be watched. Thank you Jesus!

It’s been a week!!!

Here’s the funny boy and the silliness he’s been up to!


We do NOT know why!!!

And he wanted me to tell you he is the proud owner of this!


The Ultimate Omnitrex.  If you have a wee boy and he wants this very OVERPRICED piece of shit toy, I beg you to say no! Crappy construction, absolutely no play value and it’s way more work for mom than play for kids. Also you have to purchase separately at $5.98 ea the little guys that go on top. STUPID! All that aside, he loves it.  I should have bought the damn Legos he wanted!

Friday Art- Karin Kuhlmann

Sometimes you look at art and you can’t even think of words. That’s how her art makes me feel. I particularly love her digital paintings, but really all of her stuff is beautiful. Her digital work though… is like watching a fairy dance.





And my Favorite!  Witches Kitchen!!!


I hope you’ll check her out!  Karin Kuhlmann

I was thinking that if I’m going to keep this blog, I really need to keep it up. It’s too easy to put it off and forget it for another day but that sucks for the three people that read this thing. So, I’m going to try to do better. I’m committing to even days this month! That’s all just the evens. More if I can fit it in. But for now…let’s just even things out<G>!


Hold me to it!
