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!

This artwork was inspired by a nightmare I had not long ago. I look forward to adding it to one of my collections. I just know it gives you a chilling feel as well. 🙂

Sleepy Sundays: Northern Lights

Sometimes I make backgrounds for websites and actual tiles and handbags, quilts and things like that when my designs are printed out in various formats. It’s one of the ways I am able to make somewhat of a living off of my art. This tile has a transparent background so I can play with the foreground and make it into day or night variations and add things like stars, etc.

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend!

We are very busy in the clouds!

Some of the gardens I’ve had the pleasure of visiting throughout my lifetime were scattered with fruit. This design and tile were inspired by one of my favorites.

Have a beautiful Sunday!

 

Sleepy Sundays: Brighter Day

A lot has changed in the past few months. Even more is still changing. We are no longer moving our place of residence and this office. (At least not any time in the near future.) A great deal has gone on behind the scenes.

One thing remains constant. My health is still considerably poor. We are doing our best to fix this. Although, I’m not too sure what’s in the cards for me.

We decided to renew CardCastles for another year anyway. Somehow, I still have this strange optimism despite having tea with the reaper lately. There’s so much more to tell you, but we’re going to have to save that for a Daydreams Diary. For now, let’s all just try to look towards brighter days together.

What gives you hope?

Have a peaceful Sunday
