Hello! As you can see I have been busy painting!! My twin boys asked me if they could have a Patriots bedroom when we moved into our new house. We moved in at the end of December and the boys have been sleeping with flowered wallpaper since then. That was due largely to the fact that they were giving me a hard time going to sleep at night and I told them I would leave the flowered wallpaper up until they behaved! Well, they once again wore me down as I really wanted to do this mural. I thought it would be a nice surprise if I finished it in time for Super Bowl Sunday!! I added an inspirational quote by Joe Paterno he was the head coach for Penn State football. Hopefully this will help inspire them as they grow!! My next project is a series of canvas paintings for this adorable little girl named Morgan and her brother Owen's play room. Stay tuned...........

I wanted to do something for the children of Haiti and I wanted to create a way for our children to show their support. I decided to create a t-shirt to raise money to be sent to Save The Children.org. Save the children is the leading independent organization that creates lasting change for children in need in the U.S.A and around the world. As it has done in recent disasters in Haiti, Save The Children is preparing to provide immediate lifesaving assistance such as food, water, shelter and child friendly spaces. This t-shirt was a huge hit with my 9 year old daughter and her friends. Look for them on my Etsy page, www.myartfulhand.Etsy.com I am going to post them to be sold as soon as I finish one for the boys.
