It's been a long time since I posted. I will just say 2014 wasn't the best year for me, I lost my mom who was also my best friend, and later in the year had a small stroke. I am almost back to normal. I am so thankful for my brothers and S-I-Ls, who are more like sisters, and my nieces and nephews for getting me through his bad time.
I am starting to list on eBay again, mostly older art that I have. I have begun to finish up new items that I hope to list in the coming weeks. Below are items that are for sale now:
A new laminated bookmark and older pastel drawings:
Last month I entered a contest, (see post below) and tied for second place. This month the theme is "Wings" and I was looking thru all my old art and decided to enter this painting I had done a few years back of two pigeons sitting on ornate architecture in England.
This is my entry in the Eggs contest. I had done this in 2008, the title is, "Pick mine, pick mine!" as these two mice want their mom to choose which Easter egg she thinks is decorated best. It is an ACEO, (which is art sized 2.5x3.5 inches) and done with colored pencils on Canson Mi-Teintes paper.
I hope everyone is getting through this awful cold snowy winter. I cannot wait for spring to arrive! Come on crocus! Crocus are my first sign that spring is coming.
It's almost Thanksgiving already! I've been keeping busy working and drawing. Shown are 3 cats and Rattie Reunion III. If you are interested these are all available on eBay now, click picture to go the the auction.
This is Fluffy looking up from a tabletop.
Girly Girl peeking out from a dark space in the basement with a bit of light illuminating her cute face.
Although based on my tabby cat, I made her gray, with hints of blue, to keep it a bit monotone. She just decided that sitting and sleeping in a pie tin is the best way to relax.
and last but not least is Rattie Reunion III. They missed last year so decided it was time for another reunion.
I am still using pastels and really like them and feel they suit me. I am still trying different brands and papers as money permits. Their only downfall is being delicate, but it's not too bad as I do use a bit of fixative to set them.
