Passions of an Odd Chick

Tuesday, April 27, 2010



One of the things that happens around here besides Odd Chick painting flowers in her journal is that I have to get back to work. For those who don't know it already, I cut and plant crops this time of year on our farm and other contracts. Sweet Farmer and I only pass each other on the country road once or twice a day, and we fall in bed together awake just long enough to tell each other quick stories, and work out tomorrow's schedule. There are no complaints. We are glad to have the work and it will be steady until the end of October. I've had a wonderful winter hibernation with my art and classes, trips and family. Now I will listen to art lectures on my IPOD.

I have more good news! My daughter has started a blog called Crazy Consuela! Please check it out and comment to let her know you've visited. We all know how it feels to start a blog and think that nobody sees or hears at the beginning and that we are just visiting with the universe for awhile. You will get to hear funny stories and see her art which she has just begun and it is already awesome!

I offer up some Spring blossoms to you in hopes that your hands finds something useful to do and that your heart is in it and that you have someone to love who loves you and that your soul is in bloom.
"If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in Spring bloom,
maybe your soul has never been in bloom". Audra Foveo

Just stumbled upon your blog (from Ms. Spotts' blog, I believe?), and love your work! Your flowers are to-die-for!!! I have been taking classes with Ms. Suzi Blu also! Love her! Haven't tried the 3/4 face class yet (Petit Dolls last 'semester' and G&P currently); I'm having enough difficulty with G&P, lol! You're doing GREAT!!! I can related and TOTALLY admire your courage and determination to keep keeping on with your art, and the growth that will come with it. We have to keep going and consider our "trash" as part of the process, and surely we'll find another purpose for your "trash," . . . in time! Admittedly, I have a huge "trash pile," lol. So nice to find you! I look forward to sharing and growing with you! Happy creating! ~~ Jeanne

Hi there! It is so funny how I was lead here today. (oh, and it is Lorrie from AAJ) A while ago I connected with someone named Jeanne online over art, she decided to try a class I was taking at the time. Now she follows my blog and I follow hers. I saw that you commented on her blog and then started checking out your stuff, thinking how lovely everything is. Then I get to a picture of your daughter Joli and realize that I already have been here and I even know you! Ha! So funny how these online circles go.

Ok, long story I know. That is how I roll! haha
