Paint the Town Red

Paint the Town Red

This was the truck I started at the Arts Festival in Lubbock, TX back in April, and am just now getting it finished. I will check it in a day or two and see if I am through or not. But I think maybe it is.
This new art medium has been crazy for me, and has taken a wild turn!  Not only have I done some demos, and sold several pieces,  I also was contacted to do another demo, and a workshop in March 2012.
I have said this to say this...
I have some really exciting news, and I am still half way afraid to even say it out loud...I have known for a month, but been waiting on the contract, etc. ..I don't know what will come of it, but 5 of my torn paper pieces have been chosen, to be reproduced, and are supposed to be in Kohl's. The original plan was 3 pieces, but she chose 2 more. So I am not sure where the other 2 will be.  
I don't have any dates when they will be in the stores,  but will ship the paintings to California tomorrow! I am still in shock over it.  I feel so very blessed by God, I know He had a hand in this, and I thank Him for the opportunity to get my art work in the public.One of my favorite scriptures, Isaiah 41:13 says 'For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
And He does!
