Meet Dana Payne Saunders ...

I would like to introduce 
 Dana Payne Saunders ...

She is a passionate, creative painter that I am proud to call my friend. 

She is like a writer with paint, every brushstroke tells a story. She asked me to do some digital art (which is seen on the left) to go along with an acrylic painting she wanted to create (seen on the right). 

I think blending our two visions made for a vibrant finished piece.
 I just love this painting knowing it involved two minds - and a great friendship connection.

Dana ~ It was a real pleasure working with you. I would love to do it again in the near future.


  1. Thank you Kristine! It was great fun to work with your photo and very interesting to see how the painterly process evolved from the photo. Your digital art inspired me to use an additive medium with my acrylic paint to try to replicate the mood of your photo. It's not exact, but I learned something in the process. And sometimes the process is just as important as the finished work. That's why 2 creative minds mixing their processes can be so much fun.

    1. Thank you SO much, Dana ... I am so glad it was as fun for you, as it was for me. Love how two minds can work on the same project and bring so much variance ... So glad you also learned something new through this process ... As I mentioned, please keep me in mind in the near future - I would love to work with you again!

  2. I love both the photo and the painting! It's wonderful to see how two artist come up with different interpretations of the same thing. Lovely!

    1. Sonja - Thank you SO much for your kind words. I have been enjoying my collaborations with other artists - Just as we did with the scarf you made - Love working as a team on projects like this ...

Book Depository Meets ... BookTube

Brand Logos Found on Google Images 
I am sure if you are an avid reader you are more than familiar with Book Depository! They offer an incredible array of online books! BookTube is also a fun place to watch book reviews of old favorites and to uncover new ones!

We all have our escapes at the end of a long day - Here are a few of mine!

I usually find myself watching some of my favorite BookTubers (Easiest Way For Beginners: Go To and then type in a BookTubers Name in the search box that create videos reviewing their favorite books. These videos can range from Favorite Books of The Year to One Book Reviews and everything in between. I find their insight enjoyable and informative. They review a full spectrum of books from Non-Fiction to Fiction to Mystery to Horror to Self Help Etc. They each have their own spin with their channels and I have found many that are worth a watch and listen!

I would like to "Shout Out" the following channels:

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! As I enter into this new decade, I become more mindful of the small changes that can bring about large choices.  NEW YEAR PRACTICES As one who does not believe in resolutions, I have been thinking of better practices that we can all attempt, in hope of making our planet a healthier one.  Here are a few changes we could try: Minimize paper products Be mindful of reusable water bottles  Research rechargeable batteries instead of replacements Use bar soap instead of body wash plastic bottles Consider a wooden toothbrush instead of plastic  Think of a quality metal razor opposed to disposables Make your own air fresheners with essential oils & water Small changes can make a difference!  Can you think of other ways to improve our surroundings?  Happy 2020, Everyone !!!
