Dear friends, visitors and collectors,
In May I broke both my right foot and left ankle forcing me to wear a cast on each foot thus making access to my office impossible. This latest will only serve to limit my infrequent outings even more than before. Imagine all these weeks without access to the internet! Unable to list, let alone photograph a single item to add to my catalog here at http://www.mimideeartwear.com.
Worst of all, not a single oil painting was produced because I prefer to paint standing up, and that just was not possible.
The only piece I was able to muster, was a self pitying small pencil drawing titled: "My Broken Feet". I don't see that as a painting anytime soon.
With at least two months of physical therapy on the horizon, new listings may
be slow to show. It is for this reason that your patience is requested.
When you wish to reserve an item please call:

Watching elusive butterfly jewels in our gardens, can conjure up playful childhood memories of yearning to possess those garden jewels if only to examine them closely and try wearing them in one's hair. Speaking from that youthful girl perspective, the iridescent wings did indeed look like gems that could make any little girl squeal with delight and want to own a jewelry box full.
