Creative Adventures

Recently, I had the great honor of creating an artwork
for Delain Johnson's new office:

I've known Delain since I was a little girl.
Her sons went to school with my brother Reed.

She has such a heart to counsel and care . . .

I know she will continue to help and encourage others.
When I delivered to her home,
we shared such rich conversation and hugs.

And she gave me many new ideas an inspiration for art.
She was participating in a community rummage sale,
and so I got to trade with her for these:

I am so excited to get to work and share what they become!
In addition, I have a little peg-hanger,
a 5-6 foot wooden shelf with pegs
and 4 hollow wooden columns that are already primed
...all from Delain.

Looking forward to sharing what they become!

Sharing photos of the work in progress on my new facebook fan page:
I'd "love" your "likes"!

  1. I can't wait to see what you come up with! I love the buttons on this piece- definitely my favorite part!

  2. Love all the elements you used in this piece. I've wanted to get my hands dirty in mixed media for a while - and I've started a few pieces, but for whatever reason I'm holding myself back and go to other crafts that I feel comfortable doing. That's it -- I'll give it a go. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  3. What a perfect name for a counseling center! And how special that you got to create a piece of art to minister to the people who go there...(or maybe it was just for your friend?!?!) And I love all the unique goodness in those pieces from the rummage sale! Hope to get peeks of your art that graces those "cast offs".

    Blessings on your weekend...

  4. That's beautiful Jodene! and so so special.
    Blessings xo,

  5. Jodi, your mixed media work is beautiful! That will be so beautiful in your friend's office. The colors are gorgeous, but of course I like the photo of the bird (sparrow?) best!

  7. A beautiful piece of art for your friend's office, Jodene!!!
