where i am today

when katherine jeanne wood {miz katie} invited me to join a virtual blog tour
i had to accept...i am such a huge fan
of her artwork
it is just so different than anything i could ever paint.
for me, this quote describes katie's paintings:

"learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them as an artist"
~pablo picasso

if you aren't familiar with katherine's work
here is the link to her blog and her you tube channel

about me.
i belong to 2 collaborative art groups
so i am always working in art books;
here is a page i did this week.

after 15 years together deb and i signed the marriage contract so this face is a fusion...those are her glasses on my eyes & her big smile with my little teeth ☺

i also have 2 canvases i am working on
then there is the garden to be adorned
as you can see
i walk around with a head full of ideas
and a paintbrush.
there is plenty of time spent
with my feet up
a book
and a glass of wine.
my process...
this is where i am today...
if any of you would like to host a virtual tour of your own blog,
just let me know and i will help.
thank you katie for including me...xo.


  1. Hi Lisa! What a lovely post today and most of all, congratulations on your marriage. This face fusion is powerful and a delight at the same time. I'd love to see it hanging on the wall in a special place. Come visit me on the 21st when I post for the virtual tour. xo irene

  3. yaya! congratulations, to both of you. I too am glad I found your blog again. Your faces are better and better!!!!!

  5. Congratulations to you and Deb Lisa. Love all the journal work you do and the two new pieces look like they will be winners as well.

  6. Aw..I'm always a sucker for a good love story, and this is definitely a story of love. I'm so happy for you both. I'm sure you'll take wonderful care of each other, as you have been for the past 15 years. Much love to you both. xo And, thank you for the sweet words you wrote about my artwork. Awwww.

  7. Love your "Together" portrait. So cool. Congratulations to you both.
    Would you believe I am still reading "Sunflowers" ? Loving it amid
    all else going on....yes I'd like to learn how to do a virtual tour of my blog.
    Katie's work is fabulous.

  8. Well, Ms. Priti, here I am again. I have to tell you that I commented here a couple of days ago but it disappeared. Google does that to me sometimes. I promise, I swear, I AM visiting your awesome blog. I think what I previously said was something about your little elf door and how I want to make one for a big tree I have too. And I said congrats on your contract and to be happy forever. And...I followed your link to visit Kathrine (thanks, really interesting art). Also, I mentioned something about never having a bird with naked feet on a previous post, but it seems that one disappeared also. So....just letting you know the Google ghost is hard at work here. Keep on with that fabulous talent of yours. xo

  9. First of all, congratulations to both of you on your marriage. What a wonderful thing after all those years. I like the words you wrote about your art process very much.


  10. Aw what lovely news Lisa - congratulations to you both!! I wish you every happiness xx
    Your artwork and words are as always is inspirational and uplifting, thank you for sharing them. Your new work intrigues me - I have a thing about black/dark backgrounds at the moment! X
