Bubbles of Bliss

20x30 Gallery Wrapped Original with Acrylic by Peggy Krantz and Joli McCombs
This is what happens when you get Crazy Consuela and Odd Chick together! It's a passionate, crazy world with a Bliss Fairy blowing bliss bubbles all over a colorful flower-garden world.

My daughter came down and we painted together and it is such a blast. It's a strange, synergy that happens between like-minded souls when we paint. Like a dance, we go in and out of each other's way adding to and taking from and spray painting and detailing, until we both say it's done. And then we just sit back, drink some crazy juice and enjoy it. Our hope is that this little Bliss fairy finds a happy home and blesses the owner with wild, passionate dreams that come true...every day. I know Joli is one of my greatest blessings. She blisses my world!

We also painted this delightful little owl painting and Joli posted it on Facebook and sold it within 15 minutes but prints are still available.
Find someone fun to collaborate with in your art because you can't get stuck in a rut.  You can feed off each other's energy and ideas and mixing the styles adds interest and mystery to the direction the art will take.
Also, you have twice as many customers to share it with.
 Check out my Etsy store when you have time. I thought I would open it up for Christmas. THanks, chick-an-oddees!

Gypsy Wagon

I'm pretty sure my daughter and my Sweet Farmer thinks I'm going through a mid-life crisis. I just bought myself a 1963 Shasta trailer. She is mint condition and ready for the road. There was something about her that called to me, deep in my gypsy soul and so I brought her home to Krantz Farms. I have big plans for her during the winter - maybe some words painted on her, like "Passions of an Odd chick" or "Adventures of an Odd Chick" in a cute funky font with a flying chick here and there, or maybe I'll leave her plain and buff her up like a shiny tin can. Either way, I'll prepare her for an adventure soon.

She reminds me of a cozy little play house or gypsy wagon or a quiet, zen place to refresh.

 She needs very little really. She looks like a happy place, doesn't she?
I added some art that speaks to me. And to my critics. :)

I added some of my own art. Who knows? Maybe I'll sell my art on the road.
It's not fancy but it's good enough for me.
I like little compact, efficient spaces.
My new little puppy, Gurdy, will be ready to travel with me by Spring.
I think there will be some good living coming from this space.
And some good stories to share on my blog. If you have any good ideas for my little Shasta, please share!
