One of my new Hippie purses

Hippie Daisy Pursette
by Alma Lee

This is one of my new Hippie pursettes for the EBSQ Art purse contest this month. It is made out of 100% Duct Tape, and is only big enough for a comb and wad of bills/gum depending on your stimulus package! Really what else does one need to get through life

When a Hippie Dreams by Alma Lee

When a Hippie Dreams...
by Alma Lee

When a Hippie dreams
the daisies dance
upon delightful breeze
casting a peaceful trance
so it is as it seems
peace comes to enhance
only when a hippie dreams...

I was driving home from one dance and just as entered the exit ramp, this image passed through my mind. I had such a feeling not so much of peace, but promise. Promise that would we had hoped, and dreamed of, would not always be met by rejection. but one day, God willing it would come to pass.

This piece is done andmarkers, and Color pencils on a MDF panel. Color pencils is laid on in many layers, to achieve full color and surface saturation. The result is a satiny sheen rivaling that of oil or acrylic.

Coming soon....Alma Lee Originals website

I am busy working on my new website. I am currently working on upload the catalog of my originals. I will be adding giclee's and prints as I go along. It is a lot of work as I am sure many of you know. I am hoping once it is up and published, it will be my main venue for sales. I will be holding on to my Imagekind, Rebubble,EBSQ, and Esty sites.However, Ebay is fast becoming a very seller unfriendly site particularly for artists. So I would love any input from fellow artists or patron for suggestions. Tell me the content you want to see. Tell me what you expect from an artist website. I am open to anything.
