I have a very fabulous friend whom I credit with re-energizing my creative spirit. She hosts wonderful little art parties that I always look forward to immensely, has a great blog that I check daily and is simply a wonderful person to have lunch with.

I remember a set of tumblers with a mushroom print that I always liked. Maybe it’s the connection to nature or the cycle of life. Whatever it is, it suits me. And I love this simple rendition.

oh thank you, for such a wonderful post. i am so flattered, and honored. i am so glad that you have become a creative co-conspirator! you have also helped me become creative again, after a 4 year absence while i worked and worked on my other career. yay for us!

my collages on etsy aren’t exactly hot sellers right now. be careful of what you wish for, you may just end up with a few more for your kitchen!

ps. i just love the green walls.

I almost said I’m not hinting at anything when I made the triptych comment, but stopped myself as I also wouldn’t want to discourage. ;)
