Taking a break. I was playing with my paints and watercolor journal. I mixed some Golden Fluid Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold with some Titanium white just to apply as a background color. I realized I had too much paint and had to use it not waste it. So I have started a painting inspired by Alphonse Mucha," La Danse" so here is a sneak peak. It is funny but this is the first time I felt so free in painting. Maybe I am finally moving on beyond my self imposed limitations! I sure hope so! I am going to go make dinner now.

drawing. I love whimsey! I don't know what it is about drawing that just makes me go somewhere else, I could draw for hours and hours! I find it very meditative. Painting intimidates me but a pencil and paper that is something else! I am not intimidated by the white blank paper but I am by a blank white canvas! Maybe it is because I have more control of a pencil rather than a paint brush...it may be one of those unanswerable questions for me. Anyway, just sharing my diversion. Hmmm, I have to try to draw a complete drawing with background and all...oh, oh, that intimidating feeling is creeping it's ugly head. I guess I answered my own question. Ok I will work on it!

This is what you do to your favorite wooden spoon if you have accidentally burnt it. You get your wood burning tool and turn the spoon into art!

couple of hearts and a face pendant. Theses were handmade of earthenware clay which I fired and painted. They are wall pendants. I suppose you could really put them where ever you would want them. They could be hung from a rear view mirror if your State allows that sort of thing. The mermaids go up to approximately 2 1/2" to about 6" in length. The hearts are about 3" in length and 2" at the widest. The face pendant is 2" wide by 1 1/2" long. I think they are unusual and fun. I will have to take individual pictures for my Etsy shop. Please tell me what you think of them? Don't forget to click on the photo to get a larger view.

but I still have much to do before I paint the cover. I keep going back to redo old pages over the ones I am not quite satisfied with. These are new. The bottom one was done Halloween night. I was watching an old movie from 1966 on cable, "The Blood Queen" with Dennis Hopper and John Saxon. It was about a group of astronauts landing on Mars and the "Martians" (poor Mars and Martians what we do to them) gave them a green woman with these eyes! Yes it was so hokey and funny to watch. I do remember seeing this movie back then and those eyes gave me chills when they came into closeup. So here is my attempt at recreating those eyes.
The moment waits for you....
