Pitter. . .

SALES AND HUMBLE THANKS


Above are three of several paintings of mine that 
Tirage  (http://www.tirageart.com/) has recently sold. 

 I am blessed for their representation, belief in my talent, 
as well as perseverance; especially when numerous galleries 
are folding from the impact of today's economy. 

Many Artists are shucking aside the brick and mortar 
as they tackle their own marketing and sales. 
Yet there is just so much time in the day
and so many paintings to paint.  

 I am ever so humble and so very thankful!

The Donut War has returned.

The Contessa hit me with a double-decker of jellies
and a Dunkin' Donuts coffee cup-to-boot.  

What a way to wake up this morning. . .
and her little gem is so good!

So I slipped and slid through gooey chocolate to retaliate. 

Take that Kelley!

CUPCAKE COUTURE FOR FROSTING FUN


CUPCAKE EARRINGS TO DIE FOR!

Frosting, frosting everywhere.. 
I spy a wonderful blog centered out of NY 
that is all about cupcakes. 
Check them out at:
I've gone to heaven and rolled over in batter and frosting.

And glory to the heavens... we just might have another Donut War!
I heard a little birdie tweet that the Contessa just may jump 
right back into flinging frosting. In fact, expect a jelly splat tomorrow.

So I absolutely must be dressed to the 'nines to resume the battle.

What better way than cupcake earrings?

JELLY JAMBOREE

8" square archival white matte, glass + gold leaf frame
$150 + $15 insured priority shipping

Such good news for the Contessa

Kelley was commissioned by a Dunkin' Donuts honcho 
to paint one of her delectable jelly donuts. 
Now she's jamming! 

So in tribute I created my own donut with jelly a la mode
But this liitle sticky treat is from Panchita's Bakery in San Diego.
Big, soft, thick donuts one can sink their teeth into.   

Hope this inspires the Contessa 
to jump back into the Donut War.

(Maybe if we say pretty please?)
