Even MORE Art!

What a change!  I basically got really lucky and had the whole weekend to myself.  It was amazing, and I got a bunch of art done too, which is awesome.  Mr. Moose here is about half way done and I guess when I have a lot of time to put into something - it can end up fairly realistic looking!  Go me.

Thats all for now!

First Art of 2011

Well, I think it is totally appropriate that the first piece of art that I completed this year is a lovely little rabbit.  He is for the Year of the Rabbit show at Studio Todorovic in Art Central.  The show will be opening Feb 3rd (which is also First Thursday!) and I must say, I am rather proud of this little guy. 
He is a mixed media work on wood, I used lots of fun stuff!  Gesso, charcoal, conte, polymer gloss medium, chalk and pencil crayon!
Thanks to my lovely friend Sara - this piece is titled "hare"loom.  A lovely play on words that I thought was very cute and relates to my art practice very nicely.  It will be selling for $85 - so keep it in mind for....I don't know....Valentines Day??

Thats all for now, tonight I have the house to myself and a bottle of wine, so I think I am going to finish up my moose that has been staring at me unfinished for almost 2 months now.

It has been forever, and so much has changed!

I can't believe that the last time I posted here was Nov 6th!  It seems oh so crazy how much has happened since then.  We bought ourselves a house, moved in, had Christmas.  I worked a craft show, designed and printed all those lovely Christmas cards, and spent some great time with my friends!
This year has started with a bunch of great ideas that I hope to be starting up with soon.  I am going to move into jewelery with my printed designs....we will see how it goes!
On top of all of that - I have been hired to do a few sets of wedding invitations!  I can't even tell you how excited I am to be a part of peoples extra super special day.  The first set is for a wonderful girl I know - who is more deserving of a celebration than just about anyone else I can think of.  She came to me and asked for dragonflies.  I have completed the illustration for the design, and will be pulling the whole thing together over the next 2ish weeks.  Just gotta get my studio set up so I can print!
The large dragonfly is the one that she wanted, I had designed the little one for RSVP cards, but it doesn't quite suit her taste.  That said, I think the little one is super adorable - can you tell that I really got into drawing his little legs?

Thats all for today, but I will be posting my progress as it....well....progresses! 
Love and Kisses,
