Bug Art

I decided to do some very small things in preparation for Pennsic. I can do these while waiting on larger projects to dry etc. This will be put in a round metal pendant, approx.. 1 1/2 inch circle, Acrylic, Micron marker, watercolor colored pencil and glow in the dark paint on velum, "Lighting Bug". The scan messed up most of the colors, but the part that would glow on a real Lightning bug is a yellow color and does glow in the dark. Original SOLD, prints for sale.  Picture 25.

Guess No One Reads These Anymore

Well I guess no one reads "blogs" anymore, or at least not this one. I have not had a comment in a long time, but I will keep posting when I feel the need of have new art. It gives me a record of what I have done, how many pictures I do in a year etc.

Ah well.

New Doll Needs Name

I finally got the face for my new doll and while I love him and think he is very cute, I have no idea of a name for him. So I will post a picture of him and maybe some of you can make some suggestions of names that might work. He currently has no hair (I have to get a wig for him soon), I am thinking white or very pale blond but it might change. If you have any good names please feel free to send them to me. My other boys are Ian, Aidan and Trevi.

It Is Poison

I am very allergic to this stuff, it is bad stuff and no one should use it!

Coronet WIP

Here is what I am trying to get done before the end of the month. It has a lot of features I have not done before or have not done exactly this way before. It also has a lot of details that I have to try and duplicate...not easy. I think in the end it will be VERY spiffy! But for now, here is where I am at on this project. Ducal coronet, leather, acrylic.

Life The Universe and Everything, And why no Art Recently

OK, this is personal stuff that explains why I have not uploaded anything in a week or so. On the 26th of this month my son is getting out of prison and will be coming to live with us. 4 Weeks ago my mother in law broke her hip and has been in rehab for the past 3 weeks, she gets transferred to a nursing home this week and if that doesn't work out she will also be coming to live with us!
We have a 3 bedroom ranch style house with a half finished basement. BUT, one bedroom is ours, one is a library and one is the cat room/junk room. To find a place to put two other people is NOT going to be an easy thing!
Also at the end of July I have Pennsic and will be away for 2 weeks selling ion my, I am not getting art done I need to do or want to do.
I am currently also working on a coronet that is due in early I am a bit frazzled right now. I hope everything comes together and calms down soon.

There Will be a Pennsic Calendar After All

OK, I guess I will be doing a Pennsic calendar this year. It will not be period based but will be Japanese Print based. It looks like I will be able to sell it cheaper than normal so I am thinking $15 instead of the $20 I have done for the past many years. Anyone want to preorder?
(UPDATE; due to a raise in the cost to produce this I will be charging $20 as per normal for these. The two people who pre ordered calendars at $15 will get them at that discounted rate.)
