Swing Away, Autumn


Treading into new territory. This is a scan of Swing Away, Autumn. I put her up for sale tonight. I hope she finds a good home.

Blue wallpaper birds


It is done. I have listed my first painting since I started painting again. It may not be genius but I liked it.

See it here in all it's glory.

Ahhhh, borders



Outlines make everything better. These are too ACEOs that I plan on posting later this evening. I'm thinking the outlines will find their way to my other floral paintings as well.

Mr Clean Magic Eraser gets paint off of floor


Okay, I turned one of my digital designs into a full-fledged painting with real paint and stuff. Man, I was rusty but acrylic paint is very forgiving.

Prints and the printers who love them




After I made this and then took some pictures of it, I decided that I liked the cropped corner better than the whole tree. What do you think?

More doodles


I think I made the center too big. It could probably use more 'sway', too. Hmmm...

Flexing some old muscles


So, on the advice of a gal in the know, I decided to begin drawing again...creating something a little more 'art' and less 'ninja'. So, I decided to flex with my go-to safety drawing - the female portrait. Since I was just goofing, I added ink, oil pastel and colored pencil to it. Overall, it was a valiant effort.
As you can see, I had a boo-boo on her nose.

Tea Time



New cards. Apparently, I have an obsession with Japanese things so why not some tea ceremony cards?

They say 'Tea Time' if babelfish can be trusted.

More More More How Do You Like It?




New pendants and my first stamp print! I think I'll add some flowers to it.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaah


I want I want I want. I'm pricing pmc kilns and lino blocks and glass frit and screen fabric ...all at the same time. I want to try everything I see. As an artist, I suffer from multiple techniphrenia disorder. So, I worked on this yesterday. Be prepared to see these two in multiple formats in the near future.

variations on a theme


I made this flower pattern and now I'm experimenting with ways to use it

same as before but with better pictures



ceramic pendants. I'm not nuts about the square shape but they are like little paintings this way. Hmmm

ideas


so, I'm thinking about some square pendants...and I'm thinking about hand painting stuff on them. so, I messed around with that a bit today.

Read My Lips


I think I'm liking this return to basics.

ACEO



I decided to try my hand at ACEO (art cards editions and originals). So far, all I've done is a couple of pencil drawings.

Prints


The lovely and talented Pinky Tuscadero over at Casapinka/Pink Mohair suggested that I make my Around The World Girls into a print. Hmmm, I ponder....should it be a pattern and each gal is like a polka dot or perhaps a full sized print of each gal. Something for decorating a gal's blush and bashful colored studio, perhaps?

What do you think?

A rose by any other name




Girls from around the world...in sticker form. Having a multicultural niece, I decided that my cuties didn't have to be of the English speaking variety so I made some stickers that say 'sweet' or 'cute' or 'loved' in various foreign tongues such as Dutch and Portuguese.

Now, lurkers, please let me know if I've misused a word. I'd hate to be offering a sticker that says 'sweatsock' in Korean.

poly and poly



So, I've been playing around with polymer clay (covered in polyurethane). Charms, pendants and hair thingies. I don't think it's the kind of thing I'm going to put in my shop but I know some little girls who are going to flip.
