Another Pennsic Over

It was a rainy war and I was restricted because of my heart surgery, but overall it went well. I sold less originals than usual but still made a decent amount.

It was an odd war, many people, especially other merchants used just the same word as I did. odd.

I had bad news when I got home, Paul Jeffrey a friend and art patron passed away while I was at Pennsic. He owned my "Hern, Lord of the Green" picture and commissioned a "Winter Hern", which was pict up at war for him and he never got to see the original (he did see a picture of it). I hope the art he bought from me goes to people who appreciate it as much as I know he did.

He will be missed.

Pennsic is a different world and there are people I count as near family who I only see once a year at War. So many came by and asked about my health and asked if I needed anything and offered help and support. I appreciated it all.

The shop stayed 90% dry and no art was lost to water or anything else this year. Hope I can do as well next year.

Off To War Again

I will be gone for 2 weeks starting tomorrow. Hope to sell lots of art and have fun while not over doing it (Heart surgery was only May 31st and I am still on restrictions).

See you when I get back.

Another Anubis

I got inspired to do this and while I was in the middle of it another artist I know did a similar picture, only her's was Sekhmet and she was pouring blood from a golden goblet. But anyway, lots of work in this, parts I wish were better but parts I am very pleased with. No time to fiddle with it anymore. "Anubis, Waters of Life", 8 x 17, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil and Prowhite on Canson board. Original SOLD, prints available. Picture 31.

Scandinavian Pelican

Well, it is a Pelican badge design based on/inspired by some Norse/Swedish designs I found. I did this as a gift for a friend in the SCA ( SCA.org ) who was recently elevated to the Order of the Pelican (basically a Knighthood for service). Her personal heritage is Scandinavian so I thought this would suit her. It is on an inch diameter wooden roundel, painted in Acrylic with metallic gold. Her Heraldic colors are blue, white and gold so I did the badge in those colors and did the beading the same.  Picture 30.

Celtic God

I started this maybe 2 years ago but had some issues with his antlers and then the background was just blue...I liked the figure to much to scrap it so I held on to it till I got inspired to finish it. "Hern in the Greenwood", 9 1/2 x 12 1/2, Acrylic, ProWhite and Prisma Color on Canson board. Original and prints available. Picture 29.

Last Calendar Picture

I had enough art for this years Pennsic calendar but 3 of them were very monochromatic, so when I was inspired to do this, I decided it had to replace one of the more bland pictures.
