For a few reasons, I've decided not to print my 'magnificent mushroom', calendar at this time - sorry to anyone who might have been interested in a copy.
I have other priorities right now more important I have to focus on.
It was a personal challenge I thoroughly enjoyed & I would encourage any artist to do the same. I am very pleased with the results.
I have something to look forward to...
I already have a lovely calendar for 2019 - Perhaps it will be great year.
Have a look below.. I might re-share it the 'first of every month in 2019.
All the mushrooms you see painted are real mushrooms, Magnificent in shape, size & colors! Each mushroom I've actually seen as well alive in the woods during one foray or another - one of my favourites is 'Bleeding Tooth- February' - if you see it 'alive' you will be fascinated! It was quite the education studying each one and learning about them.. October is also a prelude under a night sky - I'm going to make a 'Edible Mushroom' calendar and for 202o & finish with a 'Medicinal Mushroom' Calendar for 2021 because by then - Mushrooms will be available medicinally, I believe California will be the first, then Canada.

I read this interesting article on Rosanne Barr.. worth sharing.
I somewhat agree with the article.
We do! I know..
I've decided to help some friends... sorry gentlemen - but I'm helping my sisters first.
I know how hard it is to start and run your own business, creating, marketing, packaging, mailing... all on your own - and never resting. Never resting because chances are ladies - YOU also have kids and a husband and a home to look after.. your day is not 9 - 5.
I know... It's 9 to fucking whenever you get to pass out for a few hours. lol
I've done it for decades & and pleased to tell you- I'm at a point where work comes to me!
& your day will come TOO! Have Faith! Don't give up!
It's TIME ladies to grab hold of this CREATIVE industry and take a bite!
So NOW I decided I want to help you. I do.
I use to run my own art studio and mural business - have taught hundreds of children and completed countless illustrations over the years for many from books to banners- posters cards, logos, t-shirt designs etc.. I get to do what I LOVE everyday & am grateful. When life gets difficult - as long as you are able to do what you love - you keep going... you work through it. So here it is:
If you are female, have your own business - preferably in the cananbis industry- (why not) and would like a visual LOGO to help you establish your look, brand - business but can't 'afford it' then e mail me. I won't promise I'll draw for everyone who asks - BUT I'll check out your IG and FB accounts and If I see you have been hard at it- sure, I just might help you further. For FREE. I will also make sure I scan your logo so it can be used for all your marketing needs, jpeg & PDF. & you get the original as a gift.
* I do make you pay for shipping! Usually under $20 so far- in Canada & the USA.
I also have a great printer here in Canada who said she too would then help with printing costs. Just saying. That will all be up to you.
Are you interested? I've decided to do at least 3 a year and I've already found the first - just someone I watched on instagram- always busy promoting her baked goods- they look good, she's always 'up & positive', funny - has a beautiful little family and she appeared to be a hard young working woman- I asked - she said "YES!!!!" *Please keep in mind- I ask questions, follow you a while so I can get a feel and then I design the logo & you take what I produce... I won't be making changes - it's how I can keep it FREE. So far though - all seem pretty thrilled and pleased! I don't care - what your business is' from Baker to Blower (glass).. if YOU are in the Cannabis industry and want a little help from this friend- e me. I'll see what I can do sister.
We MUST help each other.
WE must support each other.
WE must LEAD by example.
What else is new this glorious day!?
It was SO hot last night I had trouble sleeping- YEAH!!!
The gazebo is READY for company & company is COMING!
The guest room is GETTING ready for company!
I'm actually getting a bed for the painting/guest room - no more 'floor' from my guests
(lol - thinking of my last visitor - clearly the floor was meant to be.)
Storm is doing fucking amazing! Of course..
He is surrounded by wonderful, creative, supportive, hard working successful friends!
He is very good at what he does - he has worked very hard. I don't have to brag' all are finding out on their own what I've known for years. :)
I love my son... He is my hero. Every time I think how he has risen above his pain & bone disease & all he deals with constantly, yet he does not less assholes get him down (like his mom does from time to time) & he has not used his bone disease EVER as an excuse in this life. Fuck Yeah- he deserves all the good that is comings way- and travel too!
Does this moms heart good just thinking about it. ;)
It makes me want to give back to the UNIVERSE!
Mushroom seasons here!
Norm and I are even getting along better lately - Ha!
With prayer all things are possible.
Time to Paint- Wait until You see my Crow in the Cannabis!
