New Beginnings

I finally did it. I finally started an art blog. I have a knitting and spinning blog, but I didn't want to clutter it with art stuff. It's off topic enough already. I wasn't sure I wanted to keep up another blog though either. Plus I wasn't sure I wanted to post my work to the world. In the end, I decided it would be worth it just to document my own progress. If it doesn't work out, I can delete it.

Why Mockingbird Works? Other than painting some magic illusions for my husband, I hadn't done much painting for a few years. About a year ago I decided to start painting seriously again. The whole time, this mockingbird has been singing his heart out, day and night, outside my office / studio / spare bedroom. Mockingbird Works just seemed appropriate.

I will start out with some of my recent paintings and new stuff as it comes along.

Sydney, those pictures are gorgeous! You are really talented. I do alot of different crafts too. I've done some watercolors not too long ago. When we had gone to Barbados last year, I just had to do watercolors of some of the pics we took. Maybe I'll post them on my blog sometime. You do excellent work...self taught? I am.
