It's been ages since I've been able to get the time to blog....poor, poor, blog.  SO, over the next week I fully intend to get some photos up and slowly fill you in on the happenings here.  Be patient with me, people.

Recently I've been running a swap over on Milliande's Art Community for Women entitled, 'My Soul Sings'.  It is a 1 for 1 swap, meaning  that for every painting I receive, I send one back.  I've been painting like a mad woman for nearly two months, and happily waved good-bye to a majority of the paintings over the past couple of weeks.

Aside from that, I have had some commissions to work on, and also, smack in the middle of it all, celebrated my daughter's 5th birthday.  The goal was to keep things as 'green' as possible- a difficult task in a culture inundated with plastic party favours, cartoon characters, and a general expectation to spend more than required on one-time use decorations and toys that children don't need or even want.  In spite of this, for a first serious attempt at being more environmentally friendly, I think we did fairly well.  Later this week I'll share some pics and projects on my "Green" page.  

What else has happened?  Good question...it's been crazy around here and I've totally lost track of time.  Hopefully these artsy photos will appease the masses for now.  Until tomorrow, folks!

These are some of the paintings I have sent to participants of the 'My Soul Sings Swap'


  1. Thank you for this swap Nina I love my painting.

    Welcome back.

  2. Thanks Mary. I had posted the pic I sent to you, but it isn't showing up now...hum...I'll try again tomorrow. It's good to be back! I've still been following your blog, despite not having time to write my own.
