I just had a little photoshoot with my cat, Mythe, who decided to come visit me while I was trying to do some product photography. I thought these turned out great of both me and my very black cat. It is always a challenge to get a good photo of him. So my art for today is digital photography.
A new journal came to life today. I am really excited about this one. I will officially list it on Etsy tomorrow.
Today I am only giving you a sneak peak at the new painting I made today. I am applying to the Wild Woman Show "Luck Be a Lady" at the River Gallery in Independence, OR with this piece. I am crossing my fingers that they accept me. If I am accepted I will reveal this piece at that show. If I am not accepted then I will reveal it here next week.
Wish me luck!
"Queen of Clovers" Watercolor and India Ink,
I just realized I never actually "clicked" publish on this blog post for yesterday...oops.
This piece was an idea I had last year and had written down in a journal to paint one day. I wanted skeletons holding the frame of an umbrella in the rain that is broken down to it's molecule.
"Element" Watercolor, ink and acrylic on archival paper,
It is finished!
It is finished...finished!
You know how exciting this is?
I started this mosaic 4 years ago. It was supposed to be a quick remodel but then we had kids and life happen, so this remodel has been put on the back burner. Every once in a while, I try and finish it, but I just never could, until now. Last weekend I decided it was time to finish this work in progress once and for all. So I have been working diligently for about 5 hours per day on completing then grouting the mosaic. I am so thrilled with the results and I will take more photos of what the bathroom looks like all put together, once I clean up my mess. (Did I mention grouting is a messy job?)
"Mermaid Dual" 6ftx10ft tile, stone, sea glass and handmade tile mosaic, permanently located in my home, 2014.
Three little drawings came into exhistence this evening. An owl, a queen bee and some shapes. These were created after a long day of working on a larger art project and dealing with real life affairs.
This mosaic is a sneak peak at one of the things I have been been up to for the past 3 days. I hope to finish and reveal it tomorrow.
Today I drew a very simple drawing about my love for little farms and good food. It was a quick drawing because I am working on a much larger project that is not complete. I hope to be done with it tomorrow.
I also learned a new trick in my aerial arts class this evening.
That's all for now!
I am going to post some of my experiments and thoughts. It can be anything from photography to art to mycology
