Not sure how I am going to matt this (doing the right size oval will be a huge pain), but I have a small unique frame that I id this specifically for. I love Praying Mantis and this idea came to me after seeing some very strange versions of that bug. "Mechanimantis", 4 1/2 x 6 3/4, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil, Micron pen and ProWhite on Canson board. Original and prints available. Picture 8.

I still have tons I HAVE to do, but this is what I did instead. There is a lot of subtle things that the scan does not pick up well (like the delicate white pattern in the green kimono). The idea came to me to do a kitsune who transforms from her human form to her fox form because of the music she is playing. "By Music Transformed", 6 1/2 x 14 1/2, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil, ProWhite, Micorn pen and white gel pen on Canson board. Original and prints available. Picture 7.
This is a spiffy coronet I did for the person I did the last one for, since I took so long on the first one I made this one and am selling it to her at a lower price as a thank you for her patience. I tried several new techniques on this and it is far from perfect but I think it is very spiffy! "Gold Star Coronet", 22 inches, Acrylic and artificial jewels and pearls on leather. Number 6.

I have two very small frames that I wanted to do Japanese print style art for and as it would not take long to do pictures for this small, I did this. "Red Flower with Faerie", 3 1/2 x 8 1/2, Micron pen, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil and ProWhite on Canson board. Original and prints for sale. Picture 5.

This should have been done last year but due to emotional and physically issues it took forever and is NOW finally finished. This is a commission, the gold and red star represents a comet which is on the Arms of the person who commissioned this. The blue is much darker and richer in real life. "Star/Comet Coronet", 22 inches around, about 2 inches tall, Acrylic on leather with artificial half pearls. Number 3.

Way back in 1998 I was asked to do the T-shirt and con book design for Ecuminicon. The theme that year was fire as represented by the Magician Tarot card. I did what I thought was a cool design, the suites and eternity being juggled over a forge. But what they did with the shirt is my favorite T-shirt design of any I have ever done for any con. They went out of their way to do overlays that allowed them to print white and then black over a red/orange/yellow mottled shirt. The end result is stunning and I could not have been happier with what they did. I wore mine until it wore out, this is my husband's which he has never worn.
