A Slice of Americana


Slice One~ Today (June 1st) was my "baby's" birthday! Can't believe he is now 15. We still have school, so the only celebrating was a lunch to his favorite restaurant.

Slice Two~ We only have a week and a half left of school....including finals!! Then onto all those summer projects!

Slice Three~ "A Slice of Americana" actually refers to a fun and funky folkart painting I just finished for TDIPT. It is the first of the month and the selling sites have been updated once again. Please check them out!

On To Dwell In Primitive Thymes~ I've gone with a patriotic theme. I've painted the stack of animals, boxes and watermelon slice above. And I've painted another set of John and Abigail Adams.






(*Sold*.....but will take orders.)

On Early Work Mercantile~




I'm offering the paintings I did for submission in Early American Life's annual Directory of Traditional American Crafts. Here is a link to my page on Early Work Merc:



If you visit, you'll notice that some of the paintings may look familiar. That's because I have painted those and sold them before...I repainted the silhouettes and the lady on the blue rug for the submission(s). But a "repainting" (not sure if that is an actual word, or one I just made up!) is never the same as the "original"...so each is "original" in it's own way!

Happy June! And thanks for visiting!

Love them all but I must say that your submission for EAL is fantastic.
A perfect rendition of some of America's early folk art.
Congrats Suzanne.

Love the first one! Very fun!!! It is hard to believe Ben is 15! Yikes! I think I need proof, maybe you all should head west this summer. Was that subtle enough?
