Last Picture of 2010

As is normal for me, this was done when I should have been doing something else. I still owe someone art and will get to it very soon, but I needed a break from "Cage Fighters". This is another in my Faerie pictures series, but with a clear and non blurred background. "Faerie Warrior/ Queens Champion", 15 x 20, Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board (of course). Original and prints for sale. Picture 72.

Numbers for 2010

Well, the end of 2010 and I have 72 followers on here and I have done 72 pictures this year. I know I only have 71 pictures posted, but I have the last one done just not photographed and posted yet. I will be posting it as soon as I can.

To the new followers, please post comments, that is why I have this Weble/blog, to get feedback and hear what others think of my work.

Thank you to all those who follow this and who comment!

Not sure if I posted this yet, but I thought I would show my "Faerie Ring Press" logo, in case you had not seen it. It was inspired by an early 1900's book plate. The original is maybe 5 x 5, done in black and white in marker. This is a hand colored print, 8 x 8 or so. Acrylic on cardstock print. Prints available.

Boxing Day Bonus

I did  this (before the Yule Cards) and it was the first I did to try and get out of my slump a few months ago. It didn't get me out of the slump and it sat and got worked on a little here and a little there and is still not done (well, I don't know what else I am doing with it but I don't think it's done). Not sure of the final name for this either...anyway, thought I would post it before the end of the year since even if it does not get finished before the new year, I consider it a 2010 picture.
"True Soul" or "Soul Satyr"... 28 x 11, acrylic, prisma colors, house paint, watercolor colored pencils (I think). 71

Hand Made Tree

OK, so we didn't make the tree itself or the lights, but everything else on this years tree was hand made by me and Don. He did the origami ornaments and I did the chains and the flower/snowflake ornaments and tree topper! Hope you all have a great Holiday!

So this is how Reindeer Fly!

I bought the original of this from
I think it is well done and since I love bats, this just worked for me!

Hand Made Holiday

My husband Don and I have done hand made ornaments for our Christmas tree over the past several years. Last year we had to retire/discard many of the last remaining ornaments we had made many years before so this year we made new ones. This is the "star" for the top of the tree and is my own design based on quilling! It is simply strips of card stock rolled and glued to make the different shapes. Not perfect but I like it and maybe will do allot more "quilling" in the future. Roughly 8 inches across, art thing number 70.

Holiday Oddities

I do find the oddest things...not sure if I should post the "Glory hole a luya Courus" (wel done but disterbing).

Old Christmas

I hope I haven't already posted this, it is a card design for 1997. Just wanted to post something new (even though I have no new work to post right now).
"Snowflake Angel", 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, Acrylic on Canson board. I think the original is gone...prints available.

Faerie Fooling

Of course, with stuff I absolutely NEED to get done, I did something else! Well, I am lucky I got anything done and I hope this helps me get back to doing what I need to do. Inspired by the work of other artists I follow, this little guy jut came out. He was softer until I started doing the background and had to make his edges sharper so he was not lost in the dark trees..oh well, that is how it goes sometimes.
"Fisher Faerie", 8 x 8 on yellow/green scrapbook paper, Copic and Micron marker, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil and Prisma Color...everything but the kitchen sink! Picture 69, original and prints for sale!

Watch This Space

More old art...this is an odd little pic I did way back when. It was originally set in a wooded background but The feel was all wrong so I "converted" the woods to planets and space! I like the flow but have no idea what it is for. "Space Dancer" 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 (if I remember right) marker on Bristol. Prints available.

New Floor

I may not be getting art done but I have done some home improvement. Here is a picture of our dinning room with the new tile floor I put in. Yes it is peal and stick, but they look good and the ones I did in our bathroom have held up well for 3 years so far. The wall now has to have more work done as I could not get to it to finish the vines when I first did it.

Fun With Art

Winter Love Song

Fire Night
copyright Don Hooper

My love for you has no bounds tonight
As the snow flies about the land
And the dreams more than fire bright
Are now real when you touch my hand

My love is stronger than winter storm
Our hearts are fire in the cold of steel
As we lie here embraced and warm
There is no end to the love I feel

Warm fire bright fills the room
With its warm fire glow
Fires that burn in the night
Leave a peace that is right
fire bright
fire night

The nights are long and the days are white
The winter holds firm the mountain lands
As the snow flies about the night
We lie here safe from its freezing hand

Warm fire bright fills the room
With its warm fire glow
Fires that burn in the night
Leave a peace that is right
fire bright
fire night

Date of Second Coming leaked, Jesus said to be 'furious'

News that Christians in the US have been leaking the date for the Second Coming – it's May 21, 2011, they say – has made Jesus "furious, in fact, absolutely livid," according to reports. The long-awaited date has been revealed in advertising on bumper stickers, the sides of trucks, and now in a billboard campaign for Christmas (above).
"It's one thing for Wikileaks to reveal that Prince Andrew is a prat, but this leaking of the top secret date for the Rapture is just beyond contemptible," said the office of a high-ranking archangel. "It's a threat to biblical security."
Unconfirmed sources say that when the news was broken to Jesus that world-class biblical scholar Harold Camping was behind the leak, he flew into a tirade of almighty proportions.
"What part of 'no man knoweth the day or the hour' doesn't he understand?" he raged. "Even I didn't know until like five minutes ago, and now it's all over Heat magazine."
The Holy Spirit is also reported to have "gone tonto" at the news.
Old Testament scholars believe the billboard campaign will backfire on Mr Camping. "What he's done is a bit of an abomination unto the Lord," said one scholar, "and that never plays too well with the Fire and Brimstone department in Heaven."
But New Testament scholars disagree, saying that Mr Camping can expect to be "left behind" in the Rapture, along with author Tim LaHaye, who has also revealed classified information about the Second Coming in his popular Left Behind novels.
Camping and LaHaye are now expected to undergo the Great Tribulation, according to one expert, plus the wrath of the Whore of Babylon, and an unwelcome meeting with "the beast having seven heads and ten horns".
"They're going to throw the Book of Revelation at them," he said.

The Virgin Mary was unavailable for comment.

Diffrent Other Tarot

Well, here is another Tarot card, but not from my Tarot of Atlantis but from my Tristan Alexander Tarot (also called the Eternal Champions Tarot). This is the only truly bad card in any Tarot deck as normal or reversed it is just not good news sorta card. It is also the only one in my deck that is drawn sideways. "10 of Swords".

So Much To DO, So Little Drive

Right now I have allot I need to be doing and just can't seem to get motivated. I have the last of the 4 part commission to do. I have 2 Tarot decks to put together and get shipped out. Our downstairs bathroom has a TON of work needed, including cutting Masonite and putting it on the walls, and painting it! Also I want to do several pictures (several are needed for my new Faerie Book and for my Goddess Incarnate book). 

Any, so much to do I just can't seem to get anything done!

My younger brother died of AIDs when he was 31! I have lost many friends over the years, especially in the 80's when the epidemic first hit. We have lost many many artists and talented people to this disease.
The first ribbon people wore to remind and remember about something was the red ribbon for AIDs!

And Now For Something Compleatly Different!

Trying to find something to post, and trying to find pictures for a new book, I found this and don't think I have posted it before. One of my rare female pictures. This is the "Empress" from my "Tarot of Atlantis", a black and white major arcana I did a few years ago. Hope you like her; 9 x 12, marker on art paper. I have just added a colored version along with the original black and white. Prints available of both.
