A New Tool and the New Testament

Remember the Biblical Proportions show I participated in over Easter weekend? Yes? No? You know, the show full of spectacular biblical art from Austin's most talented art peeps?

Well, I decided to go ahead and just use my never before posted brand new piece from it as a test case for blogging from my iPhone already. Whoot! A new tool to get things done!

So here you go... I give you my Mary Magdalene. There she is in all her classic Mary Magdalenism, translated through painted plush and yarn, and there be her seven demons.

Next to a head of John the Baptist..

I have to say it feels very strange posting unedited iPhone photos. It feels very rough, unfinished and exposed to me. Sigh.

I'll just have to get used to it, cuz it's better no posts at all, verdad? Sure...

...And A Hoppy Earth Day, Too!

I surely hope everyone is enjoying their Earth Day, reveling in pretty, pretty nature -- plants animals and all!  Looks like this here kangaroo is enjoying some tulips for the occasion. Very nice!  I wish had had some more time today to get out and about and do likewise... 

Alas, it doesn't look I'll be able to plant any plants or roll around in a meadow today, so y'all have to enjoy Earth day and all that entails on my behalf.  

I've found myself overwhelmed, yet again, in the midst of a 'wedding planning, wedding DIYing, house selling, house buying, stuff packing, stuff storing, stuff moving, work doing' octuple threat, and unfortunately that has meant that crafting and blogging and the like has taken a back seat.  Not even back seat....it's rolling around unanchored in the trunk.  

Soooo.... yeah. 

I reckon today actually is a good time to remind myself to stop, collect myself, and take a breath (I can hear the Sesame Street song in my mind... ok, it's about literally breathing, but I should still make it my mantra).  Earth Day is a perfect excuse to get out and get a breath of fresh air, right? Right!

By the way, for those of you who may be curious about the hat... Why, yes! I love Minnie Pearl

And a very happy b-day to my brother while I'm at it!

Hoppy Easter!

Just stoppin' by with a quickie lacy-daisy bunny digi-doodle to say happy Easter to those of you who may not be keeled over in a chocolate coated candy coma.  

I hope other folks' day wasn't filled with coughing and thunderclaps, like my own.  How not festive, and yet, so very springtime...

And only 4 more days until taxes are over and done with! Let's hope I make it!

Biblical Proportions!

If you're in Austin this weekend, make sure to check out the Biblical Proportions art show over at Blue Genie and Bearded Lady.  

Two venues, two days, two celebrations, and two testaments. And gads upon gads of talented art folks

I have a few pieces in there (some Old, some New), but like an idiot, I didn't take any pictures of my newest piece before whisking it over there.  I'm sick, yet again, and lots of things have been slipping my sinusy mind. 

So, if you want to see my Mary Magdalene painted plush in all her yarn haired glory, you'll have to make it out to the New Testament show tomorrow evening!
