I painted this tree for my mom. She saw an ATC I painted for a friend and asked me to paint her one. Bigger. It's painted with acrylics on corrugated cardboard. It came out a little too blue for me but she likes it. But then being my mom she likes all my artwork. 


 This tree is done with acrylics on corrugated cardboard as well.  It scanned a little darker than it really is. I like it. Guess you can tell I'm a tree hugger lover.


This owl is something I started a while ago and just got back to. It's still a work in progress. It's just progressing slowly. The owl is done in acrylics and the background is done with water colors. It's painted on loose canvas. I'm not sure why I ever bought canvas sheets to begin with. Journal covers maybe?

And naturally I have to draw a face, with bad hair and one eye. Same as always!

Thanks for looking.

M is for Miracles

The Journal Challenge this past week was the letter M for Miracles. It was hard to decide what miracle. Life is filled with miracles. God breathes out miracles. Anyway, butterflies. . .

This page was just a messing around page. Trying to paint more realistic flowers. I dropped the paintbrush with blue on it so had to sling on some more.

This is an ATC's for a swap 'pen and ink'.  It's done with watered down India ink. Not sure I like it. It needs. something. background? darker color? trashed! 

On a blog that, I'm sorry,  I can't remember where or who . . .  The lady made an inner critic owl doll with a zipper for a mouth so she could shut him up.  here's mine.
