Yeah, I Finished It!

Holy Water, 48" x 48", is my largest piece to date and what a challenge. It felt so good to finally finish it. Living in the Southwest in a drought period really makes you realize how heavenly water is.

Napkin Art Charity Event

Tom Ross of Hahn Ross Gallery has organized a charity event where all the art is cocktail napkin sized. We have all been given four to do. This is as far as I have gotten but there are still two weeks before he needs them.

Is time moving at warp speed for you also? I can't believe Thanksgiving is in two weeks when it feels like summer didn't even happen.

It All Started With a Demo

This piece was inspired by a demo I did in one of my classes that I then scanned into my computer and played with the composition in Photoshop. Finally when I got to a place where it was working for me then I went to painting the final piece which has so many techniques used. There is gold leaf, stamping, alcohol, stenciling, transfer painting, water slide decals, collage and more.
