Stan & Harriet, Charles & Cecile, Brittany & Flora - collage, gouache & ink - Susan Black

& the cure for trying ... doing ... of course.

Ate my 2 frogs early on in the morning. 2 phone calls that were causing me mild angst + anxiety. Once again stories created in my ever vivid imagination, then on to creating collage owls through the day until bedtime. I'm busy working on lots of new stuff for my etsy shop - including calendars, calendars, calendars including 2 new poster calendars, at least one large wall calendar (perhaps 12 inspirational typography collages) and one mini owl wall calendar + lots, lots more.

My little collage owls, especially this print of Hugo, Joshua + Morella have been a huge etsy hit for me. These guys will be available for sale this weekend in my shop as matted 5x7 Lil Art Cards (avec envelope). Today & tomorrow whats on the to-do list ? - owls. Many more owls ! Uh Huh :)

Also doing some blog reno. I'm in the process of editing & simplifying my category/label section. My books will be moving to fantastic book site Good Reads with a link, and more general dusting & sparkling ... hey it's almost the new year - September. Have a breakfast date this morning and later today art class with my pal B. hooray !!! Owls, breakfast, art & Bee - it's a very good day
