Texture Play

I've been playing with texture. Lots of it, using Wood Icing of course, my newest love and oh how I love it. . Every time I say "I love it" I think of my grandsons, who invariably retort, "are you going to marry it?" and then laugh wildly at their elementary school joke. It makes me smile.

Anyhoo, I digress. I am bringing the Wood Icing to Art Unraveled and folks in my Three Times Charming class will get to use it. Knowing me, I'll find a way to jam it into my other class too, cause well, you know how I am.

In other news, I am finishing up edits on the book, hanging new art at the store, herding cats, and just generally trying to calm down. I don't have a show till the 2nd weekend in July. Whew does that ever feel good! I do need to paint some big stuff between now and then but that excites me and I am anxious to get started.

If you are local to the St. Louis area, consider participating in the Komen Walk on Saturday. Anyone who comes into the store with their race t-shirt gets a $25 discount!! We are celebrating our partner Rose, who is a breast cancer survivor, yippee!!


  1. Wood Icing huh? Well I loved how you used it! Beautiful colors and textures.
    I have been working on a big project and have been anxious to finish it so I can start some larger paintings. So I know how you feel!

  2. Very cool. Hope you find a way to work it into our class at Squam in September!

  3. Great works! I love the wood icing too but I'm hoarding it. I only use a little bit so it doesn't go to waste! Hee,hee

  4. Goooooreeeeeooous !!!! Love love love the reds too...
    Oh to have a class with you...One Day I will make it happen!
    I hope the walk has a great turnout !
    Cheers, Talented One !

  5. Oh you have me drooling. Does your art fest class involve this? I will keep posted to find out. Still lovin' your stencils...

  6. hi, mary beth - just wanted to tell you how much i enjoyed your post on crescendoh. i relate so strongly to the path that you took to your art. around the same time as you did, i went through a very similar internal shakeup, finally parted ways with the corporate life, and worked my way through those identity issues (though in my case, they still peek out to say hello once in a while.) thanks for sharing your beautiful story! xo, aimee

  7. looks great- and that color!! :)
