I'm still here...

I know it only takes a few minutes of my time but sometimes life swirls around me so fast a few minutes are hard to spare. After being very sick with mono and strep almost the entire month of March I am finally back to making some art. It was just a little break, right?

Here are 2 new custom pieces I have finished in the last week. The top one is called "The Guardian" and features a very protective raven. Loved making this piece and I have to say he is my very first raven!

This sweet piece is another custom piece for a wonderful return customer. She always has the best ideas about what she wants and I have so much fun illustrating them!
This piece features the Archer (the name of her son) constellation in the night sky. There are fireflies buzzing about as well as they gaze up. The name of the piece is "You can't take the sky from me" with I just adore!

And now for something even cooler, I am a member of a super awesome treasury team on Etsy and they have interviewed me on our blog.
Come stop by and give me a shout if you can! Read my interview HERE!

Back to life, and hopefully I will be back here soon!

Beautiful work as always, Shellie! And I enjoyed the interview. I don't think I ever saw the violin! Is that new? I'd love to see finished pictures of it.

Hi Christine, thank you so much for stopping by and reading my interview! :) The violin was a project I was asked to participate in a few years ago. A handful of artist were giving an old run down violin to craft as they wanted to. It was then auctioned off for the Symphony gild. I think mine went for close to $700. It was pretty cool. There may be some pictures on Flickr..can't remember. I did the theme of Winter Solstice, it was fun to blanket a violin in fabric! :)
