I love birthday cake. And art.
Yep, it's my birthday. Today I am 35 years old. Looks really funny when I see that written out. 35...me? True story. I don't feel 35. I feel 25. Sometimes I feel 15. Silly, excited, sparkly, inspired, creative- that is how I feel. If that is what it feels like to be 35 then bring it.
As far as birthdays go, this has seriously been one of the best ever. Lot's of celebrating and birthday love from friends and family.
...and I am definitely more productive in my art than I have ever been, so I am excited about what the future will bring. I am working on trying to get my art out there more, maybe money (or a living) off of it..but for now I am just content to just keep makin' art til I can't no more.

I finished up CED #338 tonight...I was thinking that this dame was putting up her tree and it just got all crazy, the ornaments tangled up in her messy curls...what's a girl to do? Just a fun picture made on my birthday. I made it with the intention that the figure would be upside down...but I think it works the other way as well.
Then...I started thinking...
...hey what if I tried to make a repeat pattern...
So I plugged it in the collage and this is what I got.
Now, the image was not made to be a repeat, but it was fun to see what it would look like. There were some areas that seemed to connect, I could probably push this idea more. Would be fun wrapping paper if put in repeat...just a thought.
