"JAY"

8"x10" acrylic on canvas board.

I painted this partly using my fingers and partly with a small brush to get the smaller details.

Finger Painting!!!

My first finger painting since preschool!


"Penny" acrylic on 16" X 20" canvas.


A close up....
#fingerpainting

A friend of mine showed me Iris Scott's art and I was immediately interested in trying finger painting. I like the fact that I am not using brushes and can't get to mired down in the tiny details. This is more Impressionistic in style which is fun (I strongly believe impressionism is coming back in favor soon)

As Promised

There's a blog post I made a few years ago, "TaDa". That post is linked to a Pinterest photo and both seem to be very popular. I shared the link to Ravelry's pattern but the link sends you around and around and around. Some of you may be patient, determined and lucky to finally find the pattern, but recently I gave up on that link.

Here's my version of the Heart part of the pattern (I made slight changes to, years ago.).
Again, I used the heart pattern from the old pattern because I didn't copy the entire pattern. When I made the adult size sweater, I incorporated cable patterns from a book of cable patterns. The actual sweater pattern is a basic sweater pattern I have in my head... you can follow any basic sweater pattern and add your own cable designs.

More Bombshell Glasses

Sssshhh! These are gonna be a surprise!

I am doing a bunch of caricature glasses of my tennis teammates/friends. I had 7 completed but 3 of them had something wonky wrong in the glass stem area, so I am starting over with those (once the paint is baked onto the glass I can't do much with mistakes. 😞 )

Sadly, these two peeps are moving away soon. So, I made sure they were painted first. I will miss them terribly!
