A Little Glimpse

I am getting ready for a new class tonight, but wanted to do a quick little post to say that I will be participating in Marie Livingston Bullier's annual Holiday Boutique next weekend, Dec. 11-12.  She always puts on a wonderful sale, so I'm tickled to be a part of it.  In addition to a few soldered items (charms, necklaces, ornaments and coasters), I'll have some small mixed-media collaged paintings.

It will be a collection of angel images, collaged with snippets of vintage Scripture and sheet music, etc.  In my illustration work, I do very realistic renderings for Simplicity Pattern Co.  (you can see some of that work here), so this is a nice change for me:  working in a different style, a little more "folk-y" but still painting girls, girls, girls (like I've been doing for 30 years now......Aaaack!).  I'll be selling originals as well as prints made into cards and possibly ornaments.  We'll see how much I get done in the next week!

Meanwhile, I've been pulling everything out of the cupboards for the Holiday Ornament class tonight.  We were only going to be having one class, on the 15th, but had enough interest to have a second.  I CANNOT wait!! I want to make about 50 myself....but that won't happen.  You'll see class results here soon.  I wish my three sisters lived closer---these would be so much fun to do together.  (I miss them so much around the holidays :- (


  1. margo, I LOVE these angels! they remind me a little of diego rivera's pictures with the calla lilies, somehow. they could easily morph into a southwestern thing, I think (I guess that's because they're folk-y). ach! I wish too that we sisters were closer so that we could paint the night away! come to my house, paint my walls or something!

  2. I love the angels! Mine still speaks softly to me! I am looking forward to tonight's class too! So glad that tomorrow is a teaching planning day though - two classes in one week is a bit tough. See you soon. Chris

  3. Waddya mean, 30 years??? You've been drawing girls since you were 4! Anxious to hear how the December classes are going, as well as the sale! What a great way to get ready for Christmas!

  4. Hey fafa, i meant 30 years PROFESSIONALLY...I couldn't bear writing that I've been doing it for 51 years---AAAACCCKKKK....but I guess I just did.

  5. actually, I was just about to make the comment that the GORGEOUS new photo of you has you looking about 35. hmm. it can't be a 20-year-old photo because the sides on the glasses are recent. uh-oh. doriana gray.
