I seem to forget about my blog these days, but that doesn't mean I am not still painting folk art. These are my latest paintings available on ebay. The easiest way to find my art on ebay is to type "folk art cris" in the search bar. Halloween kitties are the best subjects!
One of a kind hand stamped metal jewelry! The first one is for that Crazy Cat Lady you know. The second one is for the music lover! Both of these have hand stamped metal pieces, charms, and glass accent beads. They are available on my ebay auctions. Check out the low price for hand made personal pieces~ The link is at the top of this page.
Here are some of my latest creations. The fox is needle felted from 100% wool roving. The painting represents two of my favorite things; Vincent Van Gogh and my hometown of St. Louis! Both items are available on Ebay. Follow the links above~
Three of them are available on Ebay. Follow the link at the top of the page.
I have been doing a lot of experimenting with my painting. I like trying out impressionistic styles of folk art and dabbling with landscapes. I still enjoy painting my folksy people with cats. Several of my clients collect these. I will continue with these along with new styles.
The painting below is not for sale. It is an impression of my dear niece's wedding reception. It was a beautiful snowy night and there was a veranda overlooking St. Louis. The wedding party was warming their selves near a fire pit. I like how the subjects look like they could be from another era.
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
