Getting ready for the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy's!

For the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards~

Here is my dining room table! What a mess!  I am offering my print 'Vancouver B.C.' for one of the several Emmy award gift bags in the Emmy gift lounge.   I am in the process of assembling 75 prints with foam board backing, business card, certificate of authenticity all slipped in a cello bag and then I apply my promo sticker!  I will also provide a framed copy for display purposes.

I am pretty excited being the TV geek that I am.  I once was on the bleachers on the red carpet arrivals for the Golden Globes.  That was before 9/11 and all you had to do was stay at the Beverly Hilton that night and you could reserve a spot.  Entertainment Tonight was set up right in front of us so we got a great view and lots of good pics.

But I digress.....  I will get a photo of a celebrity holding my item so that is pretty cool.  I am hoping that Vancouver will catch their eye since many shows film there nowadays.  Just another promo tool that I thought I would try.

A step back in time in the Adirondack region!

There is a small hamlet at the foothills of the Adirondacks that is such a treasure.  I spend several weeks there a summer at our camp on South Colton, NY and just love it!  It resides on the Raquette River and has so much to offer. 
The photo above is a wonderful  shop that I like to frequent.  It is the 3 Falls Antiques and Collectibles shop located at 3912 Route 56, South Colton, NY 13687!

It you like antiques or just something fun and different this is the place to shop.  The inventory is always changing and you can find everything from used books and art to Victorian items.  They even carry Alpaca products!  You can find information at  or by contacting Judy, the owner, at or 315-262-2166. 

I have a couple paintings there featuring local sites as well as magnets and postcards celebrating South Colton.  One of the paintings I have there is of the charming Catholic Church we sometimes attend.  Unfortunately, it is being closed for masses as of Wed 6/23.  As it stands now it may still be open for funerals and weddings.

St. Pauls's Catholic church has serviced the area for 110 years.  The closing is devastating to the community and the last Sunday service yesterday was very emotional.    It is such a pity that it has come to this.  The church was built of hand hewn lumber from the area over a century ago.  To read more you can check out the article here
This is one of the postcards that I designed for the area.  This is actually my picnic table at camp, but it is very typical of the area.  Fall there is spectacular!!

Introducing Pinga the Painter comic! The trials of a penguin artist.

'Note to self:  Always double check the commission size!'

As you can see I am not a comic artist, but this little guy has been rattling around in my head for a while.  I have some ideas for future single frame comics so you will see him again.  The other night I couldn't sleep and this one was created!  Remember it is the thought that counts!  I am no digital expert so this is just a pencil drawing scanned in with some simple digital color.  It was still fun to do!  Don't judge me to harshly :)

Now, just to prove that I am an artist,  this is my latest watercolor!  The working title is 'A View from a Deck'.  I would love some other suggestions.  This piece is 10x13" on paper.  You can purchase giclees, framed prints and canvas prints of this piece now.  The original will be available after my solo show in September. 

I am hard at work trying to get more pieces ready for the show. 

Thank you for sharing the workings of my warped mind!
