Art Moves On

I’m pleased to say that I wrote and submitted two pieces for publication today. Who knows what the result will be, but you can’t get published if you don’t try. It was an odd mix of genres on the writing. I did a poem for Valentine’s Day for a greeting card company, followed by a little piece of macabre short fiction. Talk about a quick switch of gears.

I’ve also been busy painting over the past few days. I don’t have any pieces finished right now, but I’m working on it.

Below are a few pictures of the progress on the art pieces:

Okay...I fibbed. There is one completed piece. This one I call 'Coming Up Roses'

This is still early stages and the dolphins are in rough form...I'm a bit nervous about this piece because I've never done dolphins before. This was a special request piece and I'm hoping I don't have to whip out the gesso. :)

I posted two of these squares last week, but I've given those two another coat and prepped the third.

A little wooden tray that I found and am recycling. Not entirely sure what this will be yet. So far though, I'm liking the base colors.

Better Photos of Deva

I finally got around to charging the camera batteries and taking some better shots of this piece. Here they are:

New Art~ Deva

This is my first piece on wood. I found this lovely piece of wood discarded several weeks ago and thought..yep, I have to paint something on that. Not sure if you can see in this photo or not, but there is some bark still attached on the left side, which made it even more interesting to me. I have kept looking at this piece of wood…picking it up…asking it what it was supposed to be…and finally got the answer a few days ago. I decided to go with a nature deva…with green tinted skin, purple hair, and all…leaning against a tree. I hope that you like Deva as much as I do. I’ll replace this picture with a better one later. Once again, my regular camera’s battery is dead.
