How about some Cheese with that Whine

Good day my little Darlings!
I know I’ve been slacking on my blogging a bit recently. But I promise I’m not avoiding you. I would never do that…I love you guys :D I’m just a little overworked lately. Trying to plan a wedding leaves very little time for anything else, so my lovely readers get the shaft. Well I’d like to say that I’ll post more but it’s 4 months away from my big day…so we all know I’m just going to get busier. But I will promise to pick up my art and blogging as soon as things settle down.
Anyway now that I’m done making up excuses how about talking about ART…that’s what you all come here for anyway! :)
So I’ve been trying to crank out art like a MAD WOMEN for Dragon Con coming up in September. So far I’ve finished most of what I set out to do. My Gallery is going to be fuller then it has been in past years. I’m actually having to decide which pieces to leave out…not complaining…I just didn’t realize I was being so productive until after I was submitting my work. I’m really excited about it cause my painting technique has improved so much since last year. I think I finally found a way I’m comfortable with so I’m so pleased with the pieces I’ll have on display this year. I need to take a few Photos of my newest pieces and I’ll post a couple as soon as I do.
I’m on the last Piece of my “Wonderland” Series. Working on the Cheshire Cat and Caterpillar this week and once that’s complete it’s on to NEW MYXIES! YAY everyone’s Favorite! And OH BOY do I have some really cool ideas in store for them. Yes yes, I will post photos ;)
Anyhoos, I don’t have time to be lollygagging, back to work. I will post as often as I can, so keep checking my blogs so updates.
Love Ya!

We're Painting the Roses RED!

I’ve been working on a 3 piece Wonderland series recently. So far I have completed 2 of the paintings and I’ll be starting on the final piece next week. The one I’ve just finished is of the Queen of Hearts. I did her on 15x20 white artist board with water colors. She is in a red and purple dress with hearts and cards on it. In the back ground of the painting I did white roses that have been painted red. This was EXTREMELY difficult to accomplish. I had the hardest time getting the roses to look like they were painted and not that I just didn’t color them in correctly. I tried dripping the paint onto the roses, but that didn’t look right and wouldn’t dry either. Next I tried smearing paint a crossed it and needless to say that made a mess. So then I just painted each rose leaving spaces and dripping the paint off the roses. At first I was not happy with it but after adding shadows and highlights it actually turned out pretty good.
So now here she is. Let me know what you think.

Also I’ve been working diligently on some brand new Scratch Art for Dragon Con, I’ll try and post photos soon so keep checking my blog for up dates.

Have a Great Day!

Going a Little Bonkers

Man I’m kind of having a hard time keeping up. My Myxie inventory is looking pretty empty right now. I took a break from sculpting to work on some paintings I had planned for Dragon Con so my Myxies have been put on hold. I am fairly new to painting so I’m still incredibly slow finishing pieces. Right now I’m working on a Wonderland series. It is a three piece series of the Mad Hater and White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat and the Caterpillar and The Queen of Hearts. I ,of course, am putting a Caralyn Edwards twist on the Characters though…they are all going to be girls…of course the Red Queen is a girl but she is going to be pretty. For those of you who saw my painting “Late for Tea” the others in the series are going to match it. So I have been a busy little bee with that and I also have a few other pieces that I am diligently working on. A few Si-fi paintings and as always, everyone’s’ favorite, Scratch Art! I still have a long way to go to be completely ready for Dragon Con and with trying to plan a wedding on top of it…. I’m going a little bonkers. You know on Looney-Tones when Bugs Bunny would go crazy and start hooting and hollering while hitting himself in the head with a mallet? Yeah that is pretty much what I feel like right now. But no time to complain I have heaps of stuff to get done. Hopefully I’ll be able to post a few of the new pieces for you to see as I go.
Anyway gotta get back to work, I’ll keep you updated on the MADNESS as it gets closer to Dragon Con!

Later!
