This painting is mixed media and is entitled 'Sweet Nymph'. It was created on block gallery wrapped block canvas (staple free sides) which has been collaged,painted and layered with hand dyed papers,acrylics and oil pastel.
Lightly glazed with a semi gloss professional artists varnish to protect and seal,the sides are fully painted so this piece is ready to hang without the need for a frame ( or of course can still be framed should you choose to do so!)
A very characterful and textured work,deeply layered and richly colourful,this would make an interesting addition to any art collection!

I have been selling these adorable sets of Pumpkin People and Pumpkins for a few years now. I think I first came up with their design in 2000 or 2001. This is a mixed media hand-sculpted set. No two sets are alike, because I don't use molds. The tallest Pumpkin person is approximately 3-1/2 inches to 4-inches tall.
Each set comes with 4 Pumpkin People and 5 pumpkins. Each piece is hand-sculpted from polymer clay, baked, painted with quality acrylics and glazed.
After Halloween, use just the pumpkins if you wish, for Thanksgiving.
PLEASE NOTE: I can also sculpt just a set of pumpkins (any size). Contact me if interested.
Pumpkin People are FOR SALE on my website or in my Etsy shop!
Original painting on 4" x 8" x 1.5" gallery wrapped block canvas entitled Mermaiden. Part of a series I am currently working on with a mermaid/fnatasy style theme. This work is currently for sale HERE if you would like more info!

Medium: OILS on hardboard
This is one of a series of paintings I am working on. Each is in oils, most with impasto work added. I am attempting to subdue my palette to see where this may lead me. Lots of fun experimenting and pulling out colors I seldom use and mixing new combinations.

I'm working on a series of paintings inspired by moon tales. This one is loosely based on tales of a rabbit in the moon in Asian folklore. In the actual story the rabbit is busy working. My bunny wanted to go for a little moonlit stroll :)
Well other than my pet portrait that I'm still working on I have done NOTHING this Summer
I got this exquisite purse from ... you guessed it the Auntie, but she had glued some ribbon & rhinestones on it, which left marks when I removed them SO I painted my version of my most favourite painting Van Gogh's "Starry Starry Night"
I think it turned out nice :D
Not sure if I'll keep it or sell it though.

This is the first of a new series I am working on.A more subdued and earthy palette for me. I've had a leaning toward earthy greens,burnt sienna..rusty muted colors this past month. Now this is a real change for me. These new paintings are all abstract expressionist..inspired by dreams, the seasons and full moons.
Oil on canvas 16"x20" matted

Imagine what it's like, to stand beneath this huge eagle, while he stares down at you! I had that experience a few days ago and it was awesome! His talons are huge, his beak could tear you apart...but he looked at me until his curiosity was satisfied, then he flew away.
My Grandpa Allen used to have this exact look on his face! He was an old Scotsman with a hooked beak of a nose and I don't remember him smiling very often-his eyes were fierce too....

I started off finger painting, as you might be able to tell by the sky, all the movement in the water was mostly done with fingers too, also a thin brush, a toothpick and a Q-tip, as I added the motion strokes I smudged them a bit with my fingers too. Still want to add some small things to this, but didn't have any glue so will wait.
The poster board leaves a LOT to be desired so this one will have to be framed for sure.
Over all though I am pretty happy with this!

Altered art style ACEO currently for sale in my ebay store -CLICK HERE- to visit!
Work includes layers of ink and glaze,with collaged papers and vintage image.
Original one of a kind,signed and dated on the reverse.
What are ACEOs???? ACEO is the acronym for "Art Cards Editions and Originals". An ACEO is a small piece of art that can be defined by it's convenient 2.5 x 3.5 inch size. (Standard trading card size)
ACEOs are VERY different from trading cards however, because they are CREATED and traded or sold by artists. All my ACEOs are absolute ORIGINAL pieces of art! (Some artists choose to sell prints of their work -'editions' )
ACEOs are created in any medium available in the art world. Artists are creating them in ALL kinds of styles and varieties. There are no rules limiting the artist, outside of the size dimensions. ACEOs can be framed, propped, used as bookmarks,grouped together in larger frames......use YOUR imagination! Trading Card notebooks, sleeves and holders can all be used to display them.

The second, we just attended his Brit Milah or in Yiddish, his Bris on Friday. He is my cousins second child but first boy. My cousins were very proud of their new addition to the family as was my Great Aunt. Actually, she was a little too excited. When she asked when DH and I were going to have children, I put my arm around DH's neck and said, "Well, we've been trying to get pregnant, but DH just hasn't been able to." Everyone laughed and she left us alone. (PS...I find, when someone says something absurd to you and you respond with something absurd as well, they usually leave you alone.)
