Bird Brain

What do you do when a bird wants to make your hair its home? If you are Carrie Bradshaw, you'd continue to wear it with a veil.

An Unexpected Perch

Okay, my husband and daughter both think that the angles of her face and neck are weird. I don't see it. Do you see it?

Eta: I altered the picture in photoshop and the hub seems to think it makes all the difference. What do you think?

Windy a concept piece

I decided to add an additional piece to 'Windy' to give her some more substance. To the left, you can see that she will match up to include her wonderful red coat and plaid scarf. Seriously, I love her coat.
What do you think?

Monday, October 13, 2008


In keeping with my natural elements theme of late, I created a respresentation of wind. At least, I think I did. Thus, Windy was born. She's all autumnal and leafy, too, which is a bonus.

Illustration Friday - Strings

...and the theme was strings.

Midnight's child wears butterflies and wreathes of fireflies.

In keeping with my recent fascination with the natural world...and my abiding love of fireflies...I imaginated this little gal.

What if I'm a mermaid...

first wood and then water, I think I must be tuning into the elements of the Earth.

Entitled 'what if I'm a mermaid' which is a line from a Tori Amos song which has been worming through my head for two days now.

Illustration Friday - Sugary

This friday's theme is 'sugary' so I thought of dear Reiko, following the fireflies to their hidden midnight candy tree.

I hope she has enough candy bouquet for everyone.
My daughter wanted to add her own piece on the Sugary theme so meet The Sugar King. How sweet.

Strange Folk

The strange folk fest was wicked fun. Much coin was made. Met some strange folk. A good time was had by all. However, it has made me face some hard truths about my work. I think I'm going to start redirecting my energies back into cute characters on t-shirts and buttons, etc. Of course, that doesn't mean that I won't be painting anymore....

Rooted is my latest piece in a new series.
