Jesus in my window


So I looked out my window one night and in the condensation on the glass I saw an image. I did the best I could to photograph it as this was hard in the dark. I then threw it into photoshop to "carve" out what I saw in the window. What do you think?

Lightning storm

I am posting this one for Corry. For those of you who have not visited my card blog lately I wrote about a storm my friend and I spent an hour and a half photographing last night. We got eaten alive by mosquitoes just standing there pressing our shutter buttons over and over. My poor friend Lori lost all her pictures when her cf card malfunctioned.

A bit of my photography

We spent the weekend out at our camp in the Whiteshell and I had my telephoto lens on my camera. I decided to do some tight photos with it and sat down in a thicket under some trees and got some really beautiful shots. I love composing close ups like this with a telephoto lens as it looks like you are up close to your subject but you are not and if you include some of the surroundings they add a soft dreamlike appearance as they are mostly out of focus.

Sorry I haven't posted many paintings lately. I have been focusing heavily on my card blog. As usual I am always all the way into one thing or the other. I actually have some big plans in the works right now but I won't let the cat out of the bag yet. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. It is actually sunny here today, FINALLY!

African Violets

Welcome to my newest blog. I finally decided it was time to branch out and have a blog set up solely to showcase my paintings. I am slowly realizing over time that I am in fact flighty and that I often flip flop back and forth from one medium to another. This I am sure makes it difficult for viewing. Prairie Fairy will now be all things stampy and my pictoral art will be here. I hope some of my artwork followers will follow me over here! I will be slowly uploading my artwork from Prairy Fairy to here. Thanks for looking. Watch for more to come!

Fire Flowers 1

This is the first in a series I am doing called Fire Flowers. I am really into collage and acrylics lately. I love the impasto effects with the collage and the acrylic combined.

Old Barn

This old barn reminds me of the farm on Bear River. I love old barns, I look at them and picture past gernerations passing a simple life. I think we could all learn to live a little simpler.


Pebbles in a stream

This is a watercolor I did of some pebbles in a stream. The paper is 250lb cold pressed Arches.
