Oh Glorious Summer

A little 5x7 canvas I put together this evening in celebration of summer. I also wanted to try some texture medium (in this case, crackle texture medium by DecoArt).

Angel Board Workshop

I have such talented friends!

Here are some of the (nearly) finished boards my talented art friends made Saturday at a workshop I taught in my home. I'm so glad my friends let me "try out" the class on them before I teach it again in September! They did such a beautiful job.

Angel Baby


My original angel board (sans wings), from a wonderful class taught by Golda Rader at the SDP 2012 conference. She's tall: 32"x11.25" on shelf board.

Sisters ... forever friends

This piece is very special to me, as it is my first commissioned artwork, and it was such a rewarding and humbling experience.

Mixed media, acrylics on a 16x20 stretched canvas. Sides sealed using washi tape and gel medium.

Believe (Canvas #1)

(Click images to enlarge)
This is the first of two similar canvases I painted in the angel/believe theme. This is an 11x14" canvas; the second one (posted in May) was an 8x10" canvas.

The ribbon on her skirt is vintage lace with pearls. I made this for my mother's birthday, then she traded me for another canvas I did in fall colors, which she prefers, LOL.
