So we had a blast creating Dorothy’s shoe at the Cascades with the Suddenlink team. Those folks know how to have a good time,plus there were some very talented painters in the group. I was so impressed with not only their skills but also their great attitudes. I love classes like that! It makes painting so much fun! So here are a few pics …Enjoy!

It was a warmer than usual January evening at the Bath House Cultural Center. I was excited as this was is my first gallery showing in Dallas. There were tons of people and an enormous buzz to the place. Elbow to elbow, we made our way through the show and found some really amazing art. There was an a student area for school age kids. I loved it because they even had their explanations of their art written out.
WE had a blast, met some really cool people and enjoyed a really great show. I hope I get to do it again next year!
I LOVE etsy! There are so many cool things you can find that you’d never expect. Some of the greatest gifts are handmade even if you’re not the one making it, the thought seems to count more. Imagine you’re at a big box store. You see countless items of the same thing and your brain starts to turn into jello, cause it was the same as last time… Nothing really new.
That’s when it should hit you. Etsy. There’s a TON of really cool things, from handmade soaps to felt monster buddies, to vintage purses and original art. You won’t find THIS stuff at Bigmart.
So I urge you to take a peek. You’ll be hooked. Make sure you check out the Geekery too.
Here’s some of my stuff. Enjoy.
Watch me paint a mural for Ty and the gang on Extreme Home Makeover! It is scheduled to air THIS Weekend, Sunday Oct 18th at 7 pm. Please watch as Graffixx paints a room for a very deserving policeman’s daughter.
About two years ago, Carlton was shot in the neck while serving a narcotics search warrant. Severe spinal cord damage was immediate, followed by hearing loss and a stroke. Today, rehabilitation has restored some of Carlton’s mobility but he is still primarily confined to a wheelchair. Health issues also affect the Marshalls’s young daughter Jessica, who began having seizures about a month after Carlton was so severely wounded.
Despite their myriad of difficulties, Carlton and Susan’s big hearts remain open to others as supporters of the nonprofit program TROT, Therapeutic Riding of Texas. The Marshalls hope to modify their horse barn and stables to host TROT sessions, which would also be helpful to Carlton.
So for that, we helped give back to them by doing a mural for their little girl Jessica.
Please tune in and watch on Sunday!
Here is the latest added to my collection. I’m not much for words, especially when it comes to promoting my own stuff, but I think this came out really good. I’m hoping that it still reflects me even though it may not be as quirky as some of my other stuff.
