Merry Christmas!

The holiday is finally upon us. The past few weeks flew by and I got caught short again. I found a very old black and white drawing that was somehow miraculously saved, which made me happy and relieved.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday.

Wednesday, November 21, 2012


November was a crazy month...a friend stayed in the studio for a week, escaping a house with no power, het or water due to Superstorm Sandy...then the last two weeks spent out of town visiting. I had to think something up on the fly.

Hvit Rotta and the Sultana

Watercolor with gold And silver ink. 5"x7". Based on an aceo I did a while ago, I've been wanting to rework the scene into a larger piece for some time. This will be displayed in the CCCA's "Small Works" show over the holidays.

The iPad

Well I was going to upgrade my Kindle Fire when the new one comes out in November, but I changed my mind and decided to get an iPad instead. What made my decision was the large selection of art apps it has. I downloaded quite a number of them including Sketchbook Pro (above my first attempt with that), Sketch Ink (might have the name wrong--simulates pen & ink drawing), ASKetch (simulates charcoal drawing) and Inspire Pro (which simulates oil painting). Now the learning begins.
(Plus it's a whole lot of fun to have).

Rattery Sign

Acrylics & ink on precut wood. The gold paint doesn't really show up in the photo but there is a lot of it. Unfortunately my lettering is pretty lame but in my defense the surface was pretty rough and hard to work on. About 10"x12".

Illustration Pendants

I actually did these to see IF I could do them. They will be listed on Etsy. Because they are more work, they will cost more than the simpler portrait pendants. Watercolor with ink and gold paint, inch and seven eighths square.
