My Art Featured on the ArtBizBlog

"Tornado - Ames, IA - March 30, 2006" | Encaustic on Masonite | 8" x 10" | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- I'm please to announce that Alyson Stanfield, art marketing consultant, workshop leader, and author of "I'd Rather Be in the Studio!" has selected one of my tornado paintings for her Deep Thought Thursday blog.

What Are We Doing Here?

Dear Readers,

Yesterday marked the one-month anniversary of my new combined blog and website, and a little over four years since I initially started my art blog.

When I began my blog, I did not have a clear idea of why I was starting a blog (read my tiny first post).   I started it because I could, I guess.

It’s a Great Day!

It's my birthday!

And it's a perfect spring day here in Austin. It's sunny and warm, and the trees are all leafing out in a lovely shade of fresh green. My bougainvillea, lantana, and various other flowering plants are in spectacular bloom. My garden presented me today with the 4 beautiful calla lilies you see here.

Recent Sketches and Small Paintings

Here is a sample of some of the small sketches and paintings I have been playing with over the past couple of months.  Most of them are 6"x6".

When you start out you learn to do something, then you try something else, then you take a chance and you try something else and it works, and soon you’re doing things you never dreamed you could do.
