Another Man's Treasure

In honour of my favourite Time Traveler (more on that shortly), I thought I'd share a little blast from the past.

When I was taking art in college, I experimented with incorporating unusual things in some of my work.

This first painting is one of my favourites and hangs above Oliver's change table at the moment.

The textured black foreground is a combination of sand, dryer lint, and acrylic paint.

This next painting is somewhat inspired by the Three Little Pigs fairytale.  Except in this version, the pigs are the big bad characters.

This one incorporates actual garbage items such as fast food trash, hamster treats, plastic and paper bags, shredded newspaper, and string.  Everything is sealed in with a two part apoxy that dries hard and shiny.

I really enjoyed my time studying art in college.  It was wonderful being surrounded by such a creative environment and people who encouraged experimentation.

Let me know what you think.  Any comments or criticisms are welcome!

Now for the wibbly wobbly timey wimey time traveling part ...

Is anyone else super excited for the new episode of Doctor Who tonight?
For the first time ever, this British show is premiering in North America on the same night.
I may be revealing my inner geek here, but I've been so excited since I found out a week or so ago...


Thanks for dropping in.


  1. I love your art work, the pigs are fantastic! I did art at college and loved it. Your work is inspiring and makes me want to paint again, thanks for sharing!

  2. The hubs loves Dr. Who, too. Love the first painting! Who knew dryer lint could be incorporated into art? Thanks for sharing.

  3. Fantastic work Andrea! You are very talented!!! ♥

  4. I thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had HERPES virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won’t get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there’s no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how Dr OLIHA cured them from HERPES virus, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 9 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you Dr OLIHA because I forever owe you my life and I’ll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact Dr OLIHA on email {} or visit his website is or Cell Whatsapp Number +2349038382931 thank you


  5. I was haven herpes 2 on my genital area . I have had them for about 2 and a bit years. I am so scared what my mates are going to says if there should fined out i have herpes on my genital area and due to the virus my girlfriend broke up with me. I have been to the Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all come back. I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any bigger, but then they can't shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so bad! DR. Oyagu website has been a huge help and has helped me realize a lot more about me and my family of genital herpes! so that was when I switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy, I search and I saw a great posts by Sarah devise Martha, Mignon Wright and shanttel Merritt on about the great herbal doctor that get them rid of there disease infection. and this great herbal doctor was called DR. Oyagu so that was when I contacted him for my own treatment and he prepared me some herbs which I takes for some couples of days, and I take it as he says before I am to no me and my family was perfectly cure for it and never experience it again. please friends if you have herpes virus and you really wants to get rid of it, please contact this great DR. Oyagu for herbal treatment and you will get rid of it. EMAIL. reach him via his website; thank you'll
