Liver of Sulfur is stinky stuff! I tried a new gel formula yesterday and was really pleased with the results. I’m used to LofS turning the silver mega black instantly, and I wanted a less harsh look for my little nests. I put just a few drops of the gel kind in my water and swished my goodies around in one big batch to get a varigated look and it worked like a charm. I can’t capture the variations on camera, but the 3 nests on the left are a soft mix of blues & greens & greys.
These ones are heading to the gallery, but I’ll be adding some to my Etsy page in a day or two.
What’s a gal to do when when she’s sick with an icky cold? Scrub acorn caps. My eyes are too watery to draw or paint, and if you can believe it my studio is clean, so there’s nothing to do there. So I decided to fit my acorn caps to my pottery acorns.
I have new series in the works… I’m going to share some of the special elements I use in my mixed-media art. I will be offering hand crafted elements like the glazed pottery acorns with real acorn caps. I collected some caps last fall, so today I figured was a good day for scrubbing, since I’m sick with this darn cold. Dirt and germs be gone! I made the acorns using red clay and white clay and have glazed them with a variety of glazes ranging from matte & earthy, to shiny with crackles. I really love they are turning out.
Update! – I have some listed in the shop now.
A third “birdcage” doll made, and my favorite so far. I’m happy with her dress, and the little mushrooms were fun to make. The moss covered rocks are a ‘faux’ version, so there is no upkeep needed. Tons of fun, I hope you like it. (click on pic to see full size images)
I’ve listed her in my Etsy shop – click here to read about her details.
If you are interested in learning how I create my birdcage dolls, let me know. I’m thinking of doing a class.
I started making these fabric wall hangings this summer as something that could showcase my photos of the beaches, as mementos for the touring customers in the gallery and I was hoping to sell the 3 or 4 more that I made. I had no idea that they would take off as well as they did, and now I’m having trouble keeping up :) Somehow between finishing my bowl for the Empty Bowls bennifet and making thanksgiving dinner, I need to sew some more for the gallery. This is a peek at a few… I paint the background fabric, print my photo on cotton and sew it on, then layer on goodies that I find on location.
UPDATE: there are no minimum bids… you send me your best bid and I’ll let the winners know on the evening of the 14th. A great opportunity to get some art or a sterling charm at a great price, with free shipping! Please bid now :)
I am putting my “Love Soars” and a sterling silver and pearl nest charm up for auction. The auction will end on June 14th @ 6pm. All bids should be emailed to me directly the top bidders will be announced here on my blog on the 12th, at which time I will contact you for shipping and payment information. You will need to send your auction payment to me, but it must be made out to Seattle Children’s Hospital. I will then mail your check to Jill, Alexis’s mom and will mail your art – in the spirit of giving, I will pay for the art shipping :)
LOVE painting with a mod look… drippy aqua acrylic paint and a very fun 3D heart with wings. A little vintage sheet music distressed with paint and some lovely scrolls.
Negative space gives this a modern flair! And if you love the aqua and red color combo – you’ll love this painting.
14×14 inch stretched canvas
1/2 inch deep
CLICK HERE TO BID… Please put BID: LOVE SOARS in the subject line!
A sweet sterling silver nest holds this freshwater pearl for a delicate and pretty charm. About a half inch across.

She’s signed, sealed and ready to be delivered :)
Available in my Etsy shop right now :)
Try this video again… the first time I uploaded it – it only showed a quarter of it. It should all be here now… my son, my g-baby, and my art.
She’s my latest painting. I did her in a style I Have not done before, and it’s by far my favorite method so far… I think I found “my style”. I have used all my fave methods and combined them into one style … acrylic paint (made translucent like water color), wood burning the outline, adding in paper like always, but the best part is something new I tried…. instead of using acrylic paint on her face, I left it ‘naked’ and only used my wood burner and some pastel chalks to giver her life. I love the effect. Acrylic paint is used on her eyes, lips and hair – to make them pop.
I need to finish her shirt, then get her photographed with my good camera – this is just my camera phone (her background is showing blue, but it’s really more green) and she’ll be for sale on Etsy. I need to go the fabric store for some organza for her shirt, this weekend.
