My Favorites

Here are a few of my favorite things....

"Lost" - Original Fabric on Wood art

I think this is my new favorite piece that I have done (sometimes ya just gotta have a favorite). I am usually such a blue person but I am so drawn to these monochromatic gold and yellow pieces lately. I will be going to this GIANT local fabric store in the next couple of weeks and I am hoping to stock up on all kinds of goodies!!! Then when I get home with all my new fabrics my mind is racing a mile a minute b/c it almost can't contain all the images that come to life! I LOVE making ART!!!!

Another one of my Favorite things right now is this DARLING little bear hat that I ordered from - she has the best little helmet hats. And I tell you if the adult monkey helmet had been in there when I ordered the bear helmet I would have switched over and ordered a monkey helmet for my son and husband. So cute

If anyone out there reads my blog...for the love of God leave me a comment! I feel so alone on here - sighhhhh

My first Flyfishing piece

"Early Morning Catch" 12" x 24" -Original fabric on wood art

fish close up

I have been rather busy with commissioned pieces lately and here are some pictures from a flyfishing one that I just finished. I am quite pleased with the way if turned out. Everyone who has seen it in person things that fish is painted on but it is many pieces of fabric put together like the rest. I used colored pencil to draw the rocks and highlight some of the whites and the fly. Let me know what you think. I may make some more realistic outdoorsy piece soon for my Etsy shop.

Baby Fawn Girl with Blossom

Fawn drawn onto the fabric

Baby Fawn eating blossoms- In-Progress

My first attempt at drawing a fawn...and here it is. We have a couple shower to go to tomorrow for a freind of my husbands who is having a girl. After some research we learned that they will not be doing the PINK thing (I didn't think they would) rather a more Sage green nursery. Both the mom and dad love the outdoors so I want to have a pine tree somewhere in the mix. What goes better than a baby girl fawn eating blossom. Hope they like it. Here are some in-progress photos. It will be finished up tonight with the second coat of polyurthane.

Kitty and Crow - Original Fabric on Wood art

I just finished this piece and will be adding it to my Etsy shop today. I am fascinated by crows and a little obsessed with cats. We keep finding dead birds all around the house as we have 3 cats who like to hunt. Sometimes I think that perhaps they are just trying to be whatever it is they are huntings friend. They never eat them- it is just for sport I suppose. I think my cats would be friends with a crow. Crows are intimidating b/c they are so very smart!

Some New art!!!

York County Art Museum Show Nov. 1st

" They Shall become One" - original fabric on wood art

Here are just a of my new stuff. I have been trying to play catch up after a couple of super busy weeks. I had a show and sold a ton of pieces. I still have over 1o0 in my inventory but I must keep working. I plan to start selling prints soon- keeping my fingers crossed that I will have saved up enough for the printer before the beginning of the year (tax write off- ha ha). Anyway here are some photos of new work and the show I participated in at the York County Art Museum in Rock Hill, SC. I am also trying to make my blog a more regular thing!!! So see you back here soon!
