I am having way too much fun on FaceBook!  I just don't have the time to devote to a blog. Hopefully you will fan me there and I'll do the same for you! I'm still trying to read your blogs but I always seem to have 1000's of unread posts in my Google Reader! Many many blessings to all of you! Thanks for checking in on me!!!

30x40 acrylic
I've been heavily influenced by my new surroundings AND I love high contrast patterns!
The top photo represents the color best, the bottom photo is where the painting is at the moment. I have a bunny painting in progress too (of course!) and I'm hoping to finish both this week! They are paintings that I LIKE, that's just how I'm going to paint from now on. hope others will like them too! I think they could become small prints... we'll see!

I have been working so hard to get stock built up and get this house in order. I'm still living out of boxes! My goals are to get enough stock built up so that I will be able to work on other products for fast approaching holidays! I also would like to pick up some new wholesale accounts (outside of KY and TN). If you have any suggestions of shops that might be a good match, please leave a comment!
On another subject. I worked almost 10 years ago as an in-house artist for a craft paint company. Part of my job was to paint craft projects to be published in magazines, ads, and flyers etc. I was looking at an online paint catalog, so I got curious, did they still have my projects up on their site? They do! Search by artist, Hazel Martin. But remember, it was 9+ years ago!

So Happy!!!

That's how I felt yesterday after the dryer broke, tax man called and I realized I have no new shop orders! Happy because I got this in the mail from the WONDERFUL WYANNE!!! Really made it all better, like a boo boo feels better after a mommy's kiss. Isn't SHE wonderful!!!
Wyanne is having a GOOD KARMA giveaway every week on her blog.... check out her videos while you're there!

Another painting. This one was inspired by the raccoons out here in the boonies. They are precious, from afar. lol

Just 4 Me!

I painted these yesterday. They are FOR me. No worrying about whether they were sellable or perfect. Just me painting stress-free. I have to say they are not perfect but I loved JUST PAINTING!

It NEVER hurts to ask!

Hope everyone had a beautiful weekend! I enjoyed weather in the 50's by driving to town, windows down and music (Pearl Jam) turned up!
Stopped in Target to pick a few things up... wow!
Have you seen their Store decorations for Easter? Beautiful! Huge 3D patterned flowers, banners with animals overlayed with bright cheerful patterns! So great I was ready to sell off everything to get some of them!
So I ASKED the girl at customer service if I could have them when they are done with them... FYI, there is a list (mostly employees) and they will call you when they take them down!!!
She wanted specifics on which ones I wanted, but I'm not picky, I'll take whatever is left over!
So next time you're in Target... ASK!
P.S. I'll take pictures next time I'm there!

New Designs and SALE now on Etsy!

Even with the kids being home all week (snow days) I managed to photograph and list new items in the shop. I've worked on a brochure for my wholesale accounts AND have managed to build up some stock key fobs. I'm feeling pretty happy at the moment.
So happy that I thought a sale might make everyone else happy! I'm offering 20% off ALL items in the shop! All you need to do is fan me on FACEBOOK. Just click on the link in the top right corner of this blog. Then go to Etsy and purchase the key fob(s) of your liking BUT don't Pay! I will adjust the price and send you an invoice thru paypal vial your email.
Don't forget to tweet this or add it to your status on facebook or even blog about it!
Thanks and happy shopping!
