"Eye Poppers" 12" X 12" Mixed Media on Canvas, available through the Hockaday Museum Winter Artist Member Salon show. $500.
"Fluffed Against the Cold"
20" x 20" mixed media,
Available at the Farmstore

Notice the little things:

a bird fluffed out against the cold, a colossal snowflake floating down, an ice pattern on the edge of the path, red berries on a bush, birch bark peeling from a tree, the smell of bread baking, cloves in an orange, evergreens, a wood fire, lights at night, notes of music, the taste of a gingerbread cookie, the purr of a kitten, the snuggled nap with a pup, a kind word from a friend, the smile of a stranger, the giggle of a child, a heart rock on the trail

I have always been a fan of little things and noticing all things small. In a world where the problems seem huge, I tend to switch my focus to the one small, right thing I can do rather than worry about the big stuff I can't fix. I can change the sky color in the painting. I can offer to help you with your painting.  

What little things do you notice that remind you of the season? Better days, or bring a smile to your face?  Email me.

So excited to share my latest project, written by Michele C. Fortenberry! When Hurricane Rita made landfall in Beaumont, Texas, a pair of flightless birds, Leroy and Emily, learned firsthand what it meant to weather the storms of life. Together, they withstood high winds, torrential rains, and flying debris. Together they found the courage they needed to face their fears, and in the process discovered just how brave they really were. Like us on facebook . Get your copy at www.emublues.com or email me.
