Still on the subject of cupcakes, I have come across an interesting old friend.
Catherine Holman is a folk artist that I used to follow in the days when I was painting. I even took a course from her, and really enjoyed her style. Since I have not been as involved in this pursuit, I'd lost track of where all these talented people have gone.
To my surprise, I found that Catherinehas her own blog!!! She is also featuring a new line of paintings 'cupcakes' on her etsy site. This is another blogger that uses the music widget that I've been thinking about, I like hearing what others are listening to....do you???
Funny how when you get focused on something, it pops up all over the place. Susan Williamson had a fun post yesterday on artists and sweets.......I knew there had to be some connection!!
There are entire blogs dedicated to my addiciton... This onewas linked to the picture I captured.
Seeing Catherine's blog makes me want to paint something again. I'm going to spend the weekend cleaning up the house and dragging out a couple of projects. I think I'll try and get at a certain papier-mâché pumpkin ....Catherine's place is getting decorated for the holidays and it reminds me of this favourite piece that I gave away and now lives in Connecticut. Aren't her chalkboard doors great!!??
I think the Christmas tree skirt I have tucked away is Catherine's design as well. A good quiet project to start back with.
Irene! If you're not too busy with the upcoming election ............
