I number my art each year so I know how many I did in a year. Last year I did 58 pictures, the year before that I did 89! I did about 10 less this year than last, 48.
I WANT to do art, I have all kinds of ideas and commissions I am supposed to do. But with my hurt leg and other health issues and my son being in his last months of life...I just can't get into a creative mood!

Another Holiday Card Maybe

I am running out of time to get these printed and sent, but we may not have the money to do it anyway, but I am doing 2 designs like always in hopes that we will send them out. Here is the newest idea, may add words to it before printing. "Snow Bringer", 9 x 13, Acrylic and Prowhite on Canson board. Orignal and prints available. Picture 47.

Laurel Medallion

One of my former apprentices was elevated to the Order of the Laurel (look up sca.org) and I made this for her. It is her Arms inside a Laurel wreath on a small round wooden disc, I did the beading as well in her personal colors. 46

Holiday Card Design...Maybe

I started this with the idea it would be one of our Holiday card designs for this year. And while I like this picture I got my proportions wrong and s o it would have to be a slightly cropped version for a card. I have another similar idea and may do it and use it instead of this one. But here is "Winter Wind", 8 1/2 x 11, Acrylic and ProWhite on blue mat board.  Original and prints available. Picture 45.

Reworked Old Picture

I did this picture several years ago and loved everything about it but the face. So I asked on an artists critique page on FaceBook and got a lot of idiots, but some good suggestions as well. After much consideration I opted for a simple and easy fix, that I think worked. I will post the punished picture and the old and new side by side. Any color differences between the two is strictly a photo anomaly as I only worked on the head/face and nothing else.
"The Light of Nefertem", 14 x 19, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil and Pro White on Canson board. Original $400 matted and framed. Prints available 8 1/2 x 11 $20/ matted $30/ Framed $50. Plus shipping! Larger prints available, just ask. Tristan@vampyre-nmp.com
