sneak peak inside a dream

Working on a new painted piece with a commissioned piece inspired by this one. Not finished yet, but here is a quick look at the first stage inside the 'Dream'.

And believe me....this will not look the same when finished!

halloween so soon?

August, September....doesn't quite feel like Halloween yet, especially in Florida where the heat index is continually off the charts. But there are some sure signs everywhere that Halloween is creeping closer! Well, I certainly didn't want to be left out!! I actually caught the flu pretty bad and was laid up in bed for about a week and that allowed me some time to work on some little pieces (I rarely had the strength to do even that). Halloween was the subject that stuck around.

I have so many papers, an addiction really. I love paper. This sweet little owl in the dark of night was created with white Sakura Gelly Roll pen on black Wausau acid free 100lb cover. I simply love the way the white looks on the black paper. I have some others using this style to post but still need to take the pictures. Will work on that later today.

This is 'Spooky Ghost' and he was created with the 2-layered technique as described here and here. I just love the colors! I actually created others, but can't post them yet due to one being in an ACEO swap with the ACEtsy Street Team. But soon, very soon!

cleveland browns mural update

Just a quick update on the Football Mural that I did a couple months ago. The kids and I went to visit Sharie and Steve recently and I got the chance to see the mural room in all it's glory. WOW! I have to admit it was pretty impressive. It looks great!

They really loved how it all turned out and that makes me so happy! I really look forward to the next big mural project that lay ahead.

morning song

The kids are finally back in school, so I'm trying to get back to my postings and uploads. Although I found time to create, I just never could find the time to upkeep my blogs and stores for the last couple weeks. But I am back now and ready to get busy! In the midst of all the chaos of getting them ready for 2 different schools, I was able to work on a couple ACEO's that I really enjoyed doing.

The watercolor portions had such a warm tone to them...I guess I am getting ready for Fall subconsciously. You just never really know when Fall has arrived when you live here in Florida.
These two pieces inspired me to work the same technique into a much larger piece...and I just couldn't stop.
'Morning Song' is an 8x10 with a white border for framing. It really is a very beautiful piece and I can't wait to get to work on another one, maybe turn this into a grouping/series. Hmmm......
