Mary Beth Shaw

Lovely pieces!! And I love Haley's version of House of the Rising Sun. Can't get enough of it. And that Florence song you turned us on to....:) You're my music guru now.


ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...my book came late tonight as the mail lady is dragging. and wanda is dragging tired after work and stuff today...so she peeked at 2 pages...but then closed it. she will look at it tomorrow morning when she is fresh and awake...otherwise she'd be awake all night long pouring over each page. i can dream about it this way, even more! mary beth is right about the "music guru". i suspect many of us are in deep trouble ordering these wonders...love it love and thank you thank you! xoxo

i literally gasped out loud when i saw the painting on your easel...i think it's my favorite of all of your works...but i love them all all ways


Misty, these paintings stopped me in my tracks! They are breathtaking! You never cease to amaze me...the depth of beauty that you can create.

My copy of your book came today, and I just sat down to open it. Of course, I first started at the back, where your picture is...and that made me smile. Then, I opened to the front...and by the time I got to the contents page...and that Anais Nin quote, and your artwork in the background...the tears started. I am just SO happy for you...and so happy you wrote this, and are sharing this with the rest of the world.

This book is uniquely you...and I can hear your voice, as I read the pages. I am going to savor each and every page...and then tell all my friends to go buy their own copy (no way are they borrowing mine!!!)

Just really happy for you...this book is a piece of art on it's own. It's beautiful! And something you should be so proud of!

Sending hugs from across the states to you!


Oh gosh! I forgot to tell you I have your wonderful and inspiring book...just got it in the mail. I love the recent postings of your work...I love all of your work!

Hi Misty,

Unfurling (such an apt name as I look around me and new life and flowers are blossoming everywhere), is as gorgeous and delightful as it is inspiring and informative!! I look forward to many happy sessions with it.

Your paintings are amazingly soulful and beautiful. Thanks for sharing so much of your wonderful self with us!

Lots of peace and joy,


I visit you often...but can't always find words to express my delight...You inspire me so much and your book is totally AMAZING!!!
Thank you so much for a chance to be the lucky winner of your giveaway.
The first thought that came to mind when I saw your lil kitten was "PRECIOUS"

Just wanted o say your book is fantastic. I knew it would be great, but it is even better than that. I am enjoying it very much.


A name for your beautiful kitten... Lola or Loli...


Your book just arrived yesterday! It is lovely and has some of the best instructions I've found for drawing faces. Just want to sit in a quiet corner and soak up the images. The entire book is lovely.
