Photo credit: Eugene Olivia It just dawned on me couple days ago that 2013 was the year of the snake, Arlin actually brought home a coloring from school (as the Chinese new year begins in February instead of January)...I was born in the year of the snake. Thirty five years later I feel as I'm evolving quickly into a new being, setting forth some of my dormant ideas. Taking chances to step out of my comfort zone trying to not be afraid to share my art with the world (this is harder for me than most may think) I guess...

How to: turn a soap box into a mini art canvas! Because making cool things out of trash is FUN! What? O.k.ok....I'm easily humored. The tools...  yep, you can use any size box you'd like... The how to: 1. your supplies, painters tape or masking tape, any tape that's not glossy will do the trick, gesso, paint brush, a box and you don't even really need scissors the tape rips so easily.

But I realize this is how some of us learn....(yes, me!) Anyways, I've been saving this blog post till I was sure I wouldn't jinx the process...see there I go again! O.k. now for the awesome story...It's lengthy, so get cozy. As some of you...

"Um, something Northwest influenced!" ...*giggle* "But of course." Title: "Away we the Pacific Northwest" (Original collage/acrylic painting on 16x 20 canvas by Tyler Larsen) Happy Birthday girl. This painting has got character for sure. You'll find something new almost every...
