Sleepy Sundays: Gumdrop Birds

 

[Click images to view larger versions]

After talking it over with a few of those nearest & dearest to me, I plan on using this concept as a base-work for future endeavors. The neat detail about it is, the original is a transparent mask, so I can place that little branch with our feathered friends on it just about anywhere.

What do you think we should use it for? The possibilities are endless.

Have a peaceful Sunday!

Land of the Birds

This concept started as a photo taken recently. The addition came to my collection when I messed with the lighting & added some textures to match the mood.

The feel was inspired by a very Hitchcock-like nightmare I had recently about the birds in our area.

Sleepy Sundays: Where We Walk

I know there are people out there like me that avoid the internet on days like these for reasons that don’t need explanation. So, for that I’ll keep today’s Sleepy Sundays very simple.

For those of you out there today missing someone, I’m there with you.

Have a peaceful Sunday.

Sleepy Sundays: Underwater Haven

Underwater Haven
This Morning

This Mother’s Day weekend we’re sharing two designs I was able to squeeze in instead of the usual one. They both have neat stories attached. The first above with our little underwater friends was inspired by my own mother and my sister and a day we spent down by the beach. They are the early phase of more greeting designs and wall art of their nature.

The second piece was inspired by a musician we’ve followed for years in our family. This weekend she asked on her Twitter page, what is your favorite Bob Marley song and it sparked up a conversation here at home. There are so many, but as I replied, Three Little Birds has a special meaning to me. & It also was the thought behind this piece, along with some fond memories.

Do you have a favorite musician that you share with someone close?

Have a peaceful Sunday!

Daydreams Diary: Moving On

We’re slowly packing our things again for yet another move. The future is somewhat uncertain but we’ve been planning out how the next few months should go. We’re all so ready to leave this place, including my son. While I sorted out upcoming errands and filed away my folders for the night, I added this piece to the collection of prints coming up for sale as wall art and greeting cards. It actually started out as my son’s idea and it is brilliant. This one is another trip into the fantasy genre.

Why not escape far away for a while before we head someplace new and have to do all of that un-fun grown-up stuff. 🙂
