One more teesha and finally: the start of a new painted box ...

It was a verrrry busy weekend, so I didn't have much time to make art. But I did finish the last teesha I was working on, and I signed up for another business-course: Art Empowers Me. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the website of The Abundant Artist, and was fascinated by what Melissa and Cory are saying. Signed up for their free course, and decided that I wanted to do the business-course as well. I had to decide quickly, because Saturday was the last day they accepted new members.

So now I'm doing 2 business-courses! I sure know how to keep busy now (as if I didn't know that before...). But I love all the ideas I'm getting from them, and I'll keep you posted on where I'm going with it.

In the meantime, here's my new teesha:

The text is from a song by Rod McKuen. I might go back over it with white, since I think that's easier to read. So much for trying out a different color ...;-)

And then I finally decided to start painting wooden boxes again. One of the things I love doing is decorating useful objects, or making "new" things out of old things. You can use them and at the same time you make it a unique one-of-a-kind-object. Last week I got an email from a Dutch woman who wanted to buy a wooden box from me, but all the boxes on my website are sold. And I realised I hadn't made any new ones since the end of 2010.

High time to start again! Luckily I had brought some plain boxes with me from Belgium, so I could start right away. I decided to make another zendoodle-box. They're such fun to make. Here's an example of one I did a few years ago:

This is what I have now:

I have only done the drawing-part, but that's the nice thing about it: I can do it in between other things. So I'll share the progress with you over the next few days/weeks.

And now I'm off to bed! But first I want to thank all the beautiful people who took the time to come visit here and to leave comments on my posts. It is so motivating and so inspiring, and I want you to know I really truly deeply appreciate it! Tomorrow I'm gonna take the time to visit your blogs as well!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!


  1. Love the Teesha!!! That box is divine and I can't wait to see the progress on the new one :0) I;ve been too busy lately with the work on re landscaping the front of the house to do much art and I'm feeling withdrawals because of it, Today will be my Art Day for the week :0)

  2. Oh yes and I"m all excited about your business classes too. Real soon I want to do something like that so I can cut my hours at my outside job to work more on my art :0)

  3. Teesha is very inspiring. You did a fantastic page. :)

  4. I love your Teesha and your box is beautiful, cant wait to see the one you are working on progress. I think they would be very popular at market or on Etsy. You must be very busy with 2 online business courses. I will be interested to hear how you get on, so good luck with them.

  5. Your painting is so unique and I love this heartwarming quote on it! This is a very special piece of art ! Love it ♥♥♥

  6. Love your latest Teesha Denthe... she is so sassy... sounds like you have been keeping busy with the business courses... good for you... and gorgeous zendoodle box...
