My Sister, Lizzy..... and her latest art project.


 My sister, Lizzy is a year younger than I and is an awesome artist.  This year she decided to paint on crabshells and make ornaments for her chirstmas tree.  Each crab shell has angel wings and where the body of the angel should be she has a theme, which are New Orleans themes. The crawfish pot she still has a few details to add.  The next one is the Holy trinity (Onion, bellpepper, celery), the next one is the New Orleans Hornet basketball team, and then there is the jazz one.  Of course, there is a mardi gras one, and the oyster, tabasco one,  One of the new logo for our basketball team, the Pelicans.  Then we have the St. Louis Cathderal, then the superdome and GNO bridge. Then their is Masion Blanche's Mr. Bingle.  She did an awesome job on her ornaments. PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT TO LET HER KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THE ORNAMENTS.  Thanks for stopping by.

crawfish fleur de lis painting

painting on canvas has become a therapy for myself. If you know me I am such a worry wart about everything.  But I find that when I paint it clears my mind for a short time.
