New Art Supplies!

Well,  I'm all set now with art supplies.  New paper, new brushes (got those a few months ago) and now new paints.  Look out world, I'm getting ready to paint!
Feeling very satisfied.

A Sly Cat

In between working on two children's books and filling greeting card orders, I also am working on new artwork for an upcoming show at Gallery Calapooia in Albany, Oregon.

Oh, and we're (me and my family) going to paint the house this summer too!  I better go take my vitamins!
I took this picture with my phone, so not that clear.

Something New

Here are a few new cut paper cards I whipped up for the gallery.  These don't take very long and they seem to sell well at our little co-op gallery.

I'm still working on a cut paper portfolio.  Once I have enough new pieces I'll post them on my web site.
 Birds wishing you a Happy Birthday.
 Dancing or twirling Princess.
Cup Cake anyone?

Little Peek

Here is another little peek into the workings of a lovely book I'm working on with author Gretchen Leary.  As I've said before, it's called The Quiet Bear.  Sketches are complete, now to start painting!

Fairy Garden in Cut Paper

Here is my rendition of my fairy garden made with cut paper.  I think it turned out pretty good.
There is even a small fairy doing some yard work.  I sure wish I could fly around my yard and get the yard work done.
This piece of art was created on 140 lb. watercolor paper that I painted the background with acrylic paint to give it a nice rich feeling.  Then just cut paper glued on top.  What fun!
