.~H3 Creations.~

I love H3 Creations announcement on the homepage of her Etsy Store
"Bring nature back to you!
A long time ago people weren't using chemicals to heal their skin. They were using HERBS....YES HERBS. Each herb out there has a purpose for your skin that you can acheive by infusing in water or oil, or simply by eating it. It is time to stop hurting ourselves with chemically made products and get back to nature. "
I agree. It is time to get back to nature. Don't you think so too?

.~Nature and Art By Maria Kitano.~

Nature and Art by Maria Kitano
I want to share with you Maria's Bio:
"I am a full time artist from Germany. I have been painting and drawing since childhood, using various techniques , going from pencil and graphite to pastels , watercolors and finally oils which I like the most.
There is no complicated philosophical explanation about my paintings , the whole sense of my work is to communicate an emotion to you by watching a painting.
My work is a celebration of life, inspired from things I see every day , things that most of us do not pay much attention to. My daily experiences: watching the sky , a bird , conversations, media, photos, television, memories, are reduced to abstract shapes and colors which allow me to show what I feel is important and beautiful."
I love Maria's work. You will too!
Maria thanks for participating in our auction. I can't eait to see what you doante!
We are so fortunate that you said YES!

.~The Poppy Tree.~

The Poppy Tree
Wow! What a really wonderful Etsy Store! Kelly, the artist behind The Poppy Tree- art si filled with "sunshine!"
I asked Kelley if she would be interested in participating in our Heart @ Work Auction and she sent a large envelope filled with prints! I was and still am in shock!
Kelly's bio reads:
"I am a self taught artist. I love painting as much as I love to breathe... trees, orange and green, loving and laughing with my beautiful little girl Abbey , sewing, rainy evenings, hedgehogs, squirrels, elephants and dogs, chocolate, tea, staying up until... really late, anything paper, canvas or wood. Oh and etsy, I really, really do Love etsy."
I love Etsy too and especilayy Kelly and her giving spirit.
Thank-you Kelly!
P.S. I think Kelly should send this print to the Jackson family. It so reminds me of Neverland~
It is beautiful!

Thank-you so much for participating in our Heart@Work Auction!
I continue to be amazed at the generous support that the etsy artists are giving us!!!

.~Bluebird Blessings.~

Bluebird Blessings handmade journey began when their almost three year old daughter was born. One day they took a look around her room and found they had more plastic and commercialized items than they ever wanted. A few garage sales later they decided they wanted meaning and simplicity for her toys and that was the beginning.
I am so supportive of handmade toys for children. I hope you take a look at all the adorable han made items in this shop.
Thank-you so much for supporting the quest to find a cure!

You know the one that has a BIG Imagination but creates in a tiny space:)
When I went to Jen's Etsy Store
This is what I found...
YES WE CAN! The lovely Traci of "Sundancer" asked me if I'd be willing to participate in the Heart @ Work Auction, which benefits the Susan G. Komen Foundation. She will be walking a 60 mile walk that raises money for breast cancer research. To do the walk she must raise $2,100.You can contact her for more information on contributing to her walk or auction at: www.sundancer.etsy.comI will be sending her 2 free prints to place in the Heart@ Work auction. I will also be giving her 50% of every print sold on Etsy. After her walk is finished, my contribution will continue on...YES WE CAN!This is a print of my original watercolor painting.It's printed on Matte Fine Art paper. This archival paper has a texture like watercolor paper. It brings to life the authentic feeling of the original. I use Epson Ultrachrome K3 ink.The image measures 8" x 10" with a white border around it for framing.It's signed on the back by me(the artist).I will ship it to you with great care in a cello sleeve inside a sturdy cardboard mailer.*This also comes on Smooth Pearl paper for $15 Thanks and Cheers!"

About Me

My photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
