Miss Gypsy A


I thought I would paint the A again. And She has a story.
This is "Miss A" and she lives in a gypsy van all decorated out with colorful lanterns and beautiful oriental carpets on her floor. Her walls are painted violet and chartreuse and hot pink. She has a black cat named Tarot and she loves halloween. But Miss A is not a bad letter A, she is just very bohemian and care free. I think all my letters might have a story depending on how they turn out, Miss A definitely had a story.

I am loving your funky letters, it's amazing to me the variations you come up with to finish them out. And love that they just might have a story to tell us :-)

Loving your letters Martha! I like this "A" better than the first one. You should make a book of all the alphabet letters..would be cute! A project to work on for the year. I am finally getting some time in my studio now that our weather is cooling some. It feels soooo good to be creating again. Can't wait to see "C"...lol! hugs, Sue K

Okay, Miss A is my favorite so far simply because of her attitude and free spirit.

playing catch up since i've been slammed with work the past two weeks! i love your letters! they make me want to start a little journal just to draw big juicy letters like these. maybe i could combine the stencil spray painting with the big letters. and i have a friend named Gypsy (Lizz Hundley is her real name) and you've just described her perfectly. She is also a wonderful artist and her art fills my home.

I LOVE " MISS A " SOOOOO MUCH!
She makes me happy and I can't help but smile when I look at her. What a flair you have with your lettering Martha. I can't wait to see more Mister, Miss or Mrs. letters and hear their stories too. BRING THEM ON!

You must also have safety gloves and goggles while handling battery maintenance work. Hack and Mod Your Way to Greatness Buy a cell phone battery directly from the manufacturer's outlet of your cell phone. And this, to be sure, is a good thing. For more info see on Batteries.
