I just started this piece. I paint the background first then paint the main image with light colors. I like the way this looks translucent. I may be on to something here. I almost like its unfinished state. Perhaps I can leave it almost like this, somewhat ghost like.
This piece is one of the paintings I am creating for the event called "Starry Night", it takes place on the evening of July 21 at Stoller Vineyard in Oregon.

I am still practicing. Mostly just to see how the image stabilizer works. The wind is blowing gently in these photos and I think I got a pretty good picture.
It's hard not to take so many, but I'll leave flower taking photos to the experts.

I worked on designs today. I think I like two of them the best. I've put in an order, let's see how they come out. One of them is very small 1 x 1, I can use it as I sign my paintings. Another one I will use to embellish packages, etc. Now that I've designed them I can't wait to get them!

I am thinking of making a rubber stamp. So far I have come up with these images for ideas but it's not really what I am looking for. Maybe more of stick like images. I'll have to work on it some more tomorrow. What do you think?

This is created on 9 x 12 inch heavy 300lb watercolor paper. Their skirts are recycled from my paper I put down to paint all my paintings on. I just cut it up to make the skirt shape. I love re-using stuff. They will be in my Etsy shop as soon as Etsy fixes their server problems.
Oh yeah, don't forget to drop by my ebay auction for more art. Seller name is "trossco"

I have been making a lot of ACEO's lately. (Artist Cards Editions & Originals). They are pretty much just as time consuming for me as my larger pieces. I get requests for them often so I thought I'd mention it here. Here they are, click here.
Since I'm running out of art wall space I have been collecting a few myself. No, I don't do trades very often as I just don't seem to have the time.

This artists' work amazes me. She specializes in costumes, corsets and textiles, and incorporates them into her art. The detail in this small atc is spectacular! Her name is Gillian Lee Smith and you can see more of her work here
On another note, it is beautiful here in Seattle. I'm not sure if I will stay inside and make art, or be out in the sunshine......not enough time in the day.
