Latest WIP

The picture formerly referred to as Ghost Serpent is now Elf and Winged Serpent (again temporary title). Much much more to do on it and I have no idea where it is idea of what to do for the background. But here is what I have done so far.

Just Because

Working on a new picture with no reason, I mean if no one wants my art I may as well paint whatever I want! Not sure of the title or anything else on this but it has an elf fighting a winged/feathered serpent. The serpent may end up being translucent, not 100% sure yet, also still unsure of whether the snake coil around the waste will be there or behind the body. Any thoughts, ideas are welcome. This is about 19 x 15 on Canson board.

Small World

It has been done for some time but I am just now getting a picture of the finished living room in my Doll apartment posted. Here are my boys Ian (sitting) and Aidan (standing) in the living room I made for them. I built the fireplace but got the shelves and other furniture from various places.

Tiger Trade Finished

Well, unless I decide to add whiskers (which I had originally planned to have on her) this is finished. This is an art trade with a great artists from Weasyl, Teiirka . I need a name for the picture so any ideas would be appreciated; 9 x 12 (was supposed to be 8 1/2 x 11...but oh well) Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil, ProWhite and Micron marker on Canson board. Prints available. Picture 9,

Tiger Trade Tres

Still unsure of the background but I am starting to prove my insanity yet again... Anyway the pink/purple robe is more pinkish in real life than shows in this scan.

Tiger Trade Two

Here is the inked step in the trade I am doing with Teiirka over on Weasyl. Still not sure about the background. Indoor, out door, both?

Another Oriental Tigress

I will be doing a trade with Teiirka (see link in previous post), I am still not sure if this will be a nude, semi nude or clothed figure. He wants it in my Japanese print style so it can go many ways. This is the preliminary sketch (subject to change). 8 1/2 x 11 pencil on Canson board.

Oriental Trade

This was supposed to be an ACEO (small 2 1/2 x 3 1/2) trade with He does amazing work and we had talked about doing an ACEO trade. But then I wanted to do something a bit larger to get better detail, so I went with 4 x 6...but then I wanted to go bigger. So we are doing an 8 1/2 x 11 trade. This was already started as 4 x 6 and I like it, so it will be a gift for Teiirka. This is "Tigress Orientalis" , Acrylic, Micron marker and ProWhite on Bristol. Prints available. Picture 8.

Eastern Influences

I had this idea awhile back and finally found a pose that worked for me. It has several issues and I wish it was perfect but it has it's charm I think. It is also a bad photo (I will get a better one someday when the 16 inches or more of snow is gone). But for now I am calling this "Beauties of the East" (any ideas on a new title are welcome), 23 x 9, Acrylic, watercolor colored pencil, ProWhite and Micron marker. Picture 7. SOLD, prints available.

Grandson School Picture

It is still odd to me that 3 year olds go to school and have school pictures done, but I am thrilled to get this one (I got two actually, one is a reclining picture and then this one). Logan age 3. :)

New and Different Scroll

This is still in progress but I wanted to put something new on here now that I can. This is painted on a flexible wooden box and the art is based on two paintings by Raphael and illuminated manuscripts from the late 1500's. This is a Golden Dolphin (service award for the Kingdom of Atlanatia) WIP.

Yet Another Weble

After going to the Kingdom Arts and Science Festival Saturday and trying to sell my coronets and having many ask about a website or business card. I decided to make a new Weble just for my leather coronets. Please spread it to any who might be interested.
