Deerly Beloved

This is the largest painting I have ever done.  It is 12" x 36" and is painted on a canvas that my son gave me.  I really struggled with this piece because of the plaster outline I laid down as a base-- my proportions were all off and I had to fight with her face every step of the way  :)  I am pleased with how she has turned out and will offer her for sale in support of SEVA.  If you get a chance, please check out this organization and the great work they do.  Thanks for having a peek  :)

A Handle on Love (I)

I have created several rustic wooden box luminaries and have them for sale in my etsy shop in support of SEVA.  Thanks for dropping by  :)

Hereafter Helga-- A Portrait

Time for some Halloween fun!  This paperclay piece is mounted on a silver-plated candle dish and can either be hung or lie flat.  I am hoping she will soon find a home in support of one of these charities-- SEVA or Medical Mercy.

Medical Mercy is a local charity which provides support to people in developing countries.  I have just made a large donation of artwork to this wonderful charity, as a fundraiser for their fall gala.  I am happy to support their efforts in the future as well.  People who purchase my artwork can tell me which charity they prefer to support, and the proceeds will be designated as instructed.  Thank you so much for dropping by  :)

Crows to My Heart (I)

A little play on words for this paperclay and handmade wooden heart ornie  :)  I was sending wishes to a dear friend I hold close, whose mother is battling cancer, as I was making this piece.  Hoping it finds a home in support of SEVA!  Thanks for stopping by  :)

Self Infammatory

I really love the texture in this piece  :)  Many layers of acrylic paint built up over a gel and crackle medium base, then finished with alcohol ink   It is looking for a home in support of the charity SEVA  :)

Bespoke Fae

I was so fortunate to be able to spend time painting with friends this past weekend!  This piece evolved from that time together and is an acrylic painting on canvas board painted using a palette knife.  I am hoping she will soon have a new home in support of SEVA.  Happy looking  :)

Hold On

At times it may seem
you have been flung from a cliff--
hold on for the ride...

This painting was created in support of a friend's son who was going through some emotional upheaval.  The original and digital copies will available for purchase in support of SEVA, through my etsy shop.  Thank you for your ongoing support!
