Dreaming And Some Birthday Love!!

First I want to take a moment to wish my new friend Silke Powers a very Happy Birthday!! She is the beautiful spirit who was the first to welcome me to this great creative blogland! I had been a stalker of her blog for a few weeks before I finally let her know I was there! During that time I was admiring her art and enjoying all of her posts! She was the one who inspired me to try painting my own faces!

There is a birthday party going on today in blogland for Silke. Find out more about it at her fabulous blog Metamorphosis (click here) and send her some birthday love if you haven't already!

For today's post I wanted to share my latest face painting "Dreaming".

This is mixed media on 8x10 canvas board. I have to say I had a little trouble with this one. I really wasn't sure where she was going but I really like how she turned out! I was trying to go for an image that would look as though she were by a window looking toward the stars . . .
Silke, I hope all your dreams come true!!


  1. Cathy!! She is a beauty..sparkling with so much magic! I love her spirit!!

  2. Hi Cathy,
    I think it's amazing that Silke's blog is titled Metamorphosis and yours, Artsy Butterfly. ;)
    There are no coincidences, we're all connected somehow. I try to follow artsy people whether they're writers (like me), photographers, painters, or just creative souls.
    I'll be stopping your blog often as I tend to be loyal to those I follow ;)
    Have a great weekend and keep spreading your creative wings!

  3. Dear Cathy, thank you so much for your birthday wishes - it's been overwhelming all this love from my blogging friends!! Just wonderful!!

    And now to your art - she is gorgeous with her bright blue eyes, her dreamy look, and the stars sparkling down on her. Magical!!!

    Much love, Silke

  4. Beautiful art Cathy. Nice post for Silke. Have a great weekend.

  5. Isn't it wonderful when we find that special person who encourages us to become all we were created to be and to venture out into those unknown glad you found yours.....
