Few words about this one: biggest pain in the arse ever.
But I love it so. One of my favorite watercolour pieces I've ever done. Might be my top favorite actually.

Had a request to post some of my other art. Smiley

Did these awhile ago, I think they're ACEO sized (3.5x2.5" ah think?) but I check.
I wanted to make it a project, draw a whole series of human eyes, all female cause they're more fun with makeup an' stuff, but make every iris a different colour of the spectrum. The trick is to try to make them look realistic.
I even came up with unique (weird) titles for each.
[...hmm I just tried looking for my list that I made...and I've lost it. I am a dolt.]

Anywhoodle
I show you...EXOTIC SOUND . SLEEP TIGHT . PATHWAYS.





Coloured pencils, by the way.

Custom painting of a moose on a freaking HUGE circular sawblade. This thing is 38" across, giving me an area of like 900 square inches to paint on. Whew! Huge project, one of those ones that you can't wait to have completed, just so you don't have to look at it anymore.



Photo isn't fantastic but this thing was surprisingly difficult to get a photo of.

Just wow! My jaw actually dropped when I saw these ^_^ You are extremely talented to paint on such a small and unstable canvas! The heron is so detailed!

Why thank you!
Though I do use a fixative spray to try to make the feather easier to paint on, its still quite hard. Gotta use the lightest of strokes, and forget about diluting the paint to blend, it makes a huge mess on the feather that can't be removed.

Valentine's Day prezzie for my boyfriend. He was so totally thrilled to get this, he was scared he's somehow rip the canvas or something if he touched it.

I'm not going to explain it, cause that takes all the fun out of it. Besides, its a personal thing between my boy and me.

It was painted on a canvas, 10"x12" or something like that. Acrylic paints, with a very pretty copper paint, its very shiny and metallic-y.

This view shows the shiny paint a little better.

I've recently taken to painting on feathers, people seem to love them.
They're all done with acrylic paints on either turkey or peacock feathers.


These look pretty neat framed up in a shadowbox.

I love everything about these fabric choices here: colour and patterns! The blue pops amazingly with the tan and black.

Oh lord these bags made me drool a little.
Love all four designs, they all have a different mood or attitude to them.
But I think the Kelsey bag is my favorite, for functionality's sake. Its the kind of bag I would cart around on a day-to-day basis.

I LOVELOVELOVE the idea of the contrasting lace on the leather, that looks amazing!

Making bags out of old articles of clothing is my favorite way to sew.

Love the contrasting textures and colours! The red makes the bag pop so much, totally eye-catching.
