Three Hundred and Fifty-Four!

This is a sketch was drawn for a painting I painted when I got home from Indiana. The image does not look the same at all but you obviously see the concept, Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs. I kind of liked doing this image because there was not a weight on my shoulders like the paintings carry. Initially drawn in pencil then finished with pen, there was room for error. Enjoy and see you next time!

Three Hundred and Thirty-One!

Drew these little two while in bed, just a little sketch but it was relaxing to do. The guy offering the present looks ridiculous like a stuffed animal of something. I love the other guy though, his face really works for me. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Thirty-Seven

This makes me happy. This was the front of a card I drew for Liam’s Birthday. It is basically a drawn collage of a weekend away. It feels like a journal entry in itself and contains everything I want to remember but in a playful way, kind of like an eye spy image! Enjoy.

One Hundred Eighty-Three through Eighty-Eight!

Well it has been quite some time, but here are a few images that I have been working on. I have some serious catching up to do but it will all work out. Seems as if I am starting to get back into a routine which was key in my success in the beginning. The images below are literally a random assortment of thoughts, ideas, mediums and projects. They really don’t have much to do with one another but who says they have to!

One Hundred Eighty-Three, one of the first tries at the tattoo layout.

One Hundred Eight-Four, a more complete rendition of the tattoo idea

One hundred eighty-five, this came after I had been working on a few different tattoo images for my husband and well his birthday just happened to stroll along, so I decided to theme his card after some of the ideas. Minus the color of course, that was just me coloring!

One Hundred Eighty-Six, completely unrelated to the above images and completely not near finished. This is the first element on a new larger scale piece. Truthfully, it has not even been brought to its final degree of contrast and depth but it shows something I have been working on.

One Hundred Eighty-Seven, in my attempts to get back into drawing, I have been just sitting with basic drawing materials and building imagery. They really are not even connected quite yet, but maybe as the image develops further they will begin to integrate a bit better

One Hundred Eighty-Eight, I love this. I did not work it far enough yet but I was out walking the dogs at night and looking into the woods and loved how things overlapped and intertwined themselves together. I may be revisiting this idea very soon!

Enjoy and I’ll see you next time!

One Hundred Seventy-Three to Seventy-Six!

Greeting Cards were the project of the last few nights… Finding the most perfect image tweaking it to be perfect, hand carving the stamps and then the easy part, printing. Currently, I’m in the “assembly” phase which as we all know is not exactly the most exciting but packaging is ridiculously important and it needs to look good. Enjoy and see you next time!

The whole gang!

Yoga time? Yup!

One Hundred and Sixty-One!

Above are two more examples of cards I created for the Endless Summer Event, which I participated in this past weekend. Obviously I am somewhat behind in the postings department believe me I am fully aware and attempting to get my act together now. Anyway, once again I carved a stamp from a design I created and layered it with simple shapes to give it some contrast. I really love this particular stamp and almost wish it were like 10 times as large… IMAGINE! Anyway, below is a picture of my set up at the fair. Enjoy and see you next time!

One Hundred and Sixty!

Not exactly the usual, but it was what I was doing for a couple of days. What this small little abstract shapes really is, is a thank you card created from a stamp I designed and carved and layered with a second stamp in an alternate color. I do love doing this kind of thing, it gives me time to lets say “breath” when I start getting into some kind of rut… not that I really felt that way but I do like to switch things up and keep my mind moving. ANYWAY, I was creating cards because I participated in Endless Summer which was loads of fun and I had needed some new inventory in the cards department. Whalah! Enjoy.
