Working on Christmas ornaments and dolls

Better late than never I guess! I actually have some hand painted glass ball ornaments that I need to take pics of and post but I do have some pics of my latest angel doll. My 11 year old son thinks she's 'cool'!

New painting on wood

Their wings wrap gently around you,
Whispering you are loved and blessed.

Where does the time go?

It's flying by at the speed of light. It's Spring time again already. Time for flowers and bees and everything colorful. The earth is in bloom. Perhaps I'll get to my 'spring cleaning' by November. I'd much rather sketch and paint right now.

Tried Something New

Soldering! It's pretty easy. It does help to have a steady hand. I made these with prints of original artwork and glass pieces.

My Sweet Valentine

These started out as Valentines, but I think they can be used to represent love any time of the year! These are small (2.75X3.5) pieces of wood that I collaged and then painted. I painted the angels and then used a few vintage photos for the others....and the Pug is my dog Ozzie...he's a party boy! Added some gold glitter paint for sparkle and added some bows and some reclaimed hooks from old Christmas ornaments. Fun!

Little Red Shoes or Green Converse?

Today I choose little red shoes, but when I was a kid I so very badly wanted a pair of green Converse tennis shoes! I even tore up my own 'perfectly good shoes' in hopes of being able to get a pair. Alas, they didn't make them in my size.

She's Flying Off to California

This is a new piece I just finished. Mixed media on a 16X20 canvas. I've grown quite fond of her, but I think she will benefit, who will be taking her to the Craft and Hobby Association convention at the end of January. Hopefully, she will help them to raise some moolah for all the good work they do!
