1  New painting - first attempt at Pop Art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chek101 on: February 24, 2017 09:54:41 AM
Stumbled across some cheap "Black" canvases at Michaels so I picked up a few.  Looking at them told me that they screamed for Pop Art which I never did; it's a fra, far cry from what I typically do. Anyway, I decided to give it shot. Hope you like it.

Edited to add: four panels that have words in them. The 2nd panel from the top (right side) says: "Life without cats...I don't think so!"
The third panel from the top (left side) says: "The Earth without ART would be...EH!" And the last panel on the bottom left says "Life is a song...so swing it!" The word "love" is easily visible in the next to last panel left side. Ooops, forgot one more panel...a sign on the fence (bottom row) says "What's goin' on"? Appropriate for the nosy cats.

3  The Walking Dead - painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chek101 on: May 13, 2016 01:07:10 PM
I just HAD to do it! Grin  This is my first attempt at a montage so if it's off kilt bear with me. I decided to do the montage on my favorite TV show "The Walking Dead."  One of the characters needs to be redone, I was rushed to finish the painting and so that's what happens when you are nagged to death.  I will fix when I get the painting back. Painting was worked using 2 colors and was worked on aquabord size 24 by 18.
Hope you like!!

4  Dog Portrait in Beads in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chek101 on: July 15, 2015 02:18:18 PM
...this was done using beads...very tiny beads, 24,000 of them. The person who requested this portrait (as her pet had passed on from old age) had asked if the dog could be made to look younger, hence the difference in the darker coloring in the replication.

and here is the photo I worked from:

5  Re: Strawberry Shortcake Doll in Knitting: Completed Projects by chek101 on: July 10, 2015 09:23:12 AM
You know, I was wondering if your dolls are washable...I see lots of knit and crochet dolls and animals and wonder if my nieces and nephews would get them so dirty that they would need to be cleaned...I guess it is like any store bought stuffed animal...they can be wiped clean?

I work with acrylic yarns which are washable and the filler (batting) inside the doll is also washable and non-allergic. I never washed one of my dolls because I never have them long enough to get dirty...LOL!

Below is a pic of one of her other requests for a doll...this one for Princess Peach (my own pattern) from Super Mario Brother's game...she loves that game!

8  new painting - Saturdays at Sully's - in two colors in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chek101 on: November 23, 2014 09:53:33 AM
Haven't painted much in a long while but one day I decided to try my hand at a two color composition in black and white. Much to my surprise, I enjoyed working in just the two colors. It is worked in acrylics on aquabord 18"x24".

9  Princess Peach (from Super Mario Brothers game) KNITTED Doll in Knitting: Completed Projects by chek101 on: September 14, 2014 03:01:40 PM
This is my take on Princess Peach. My grand daughter is absolutely ga-ga for Princess Peach from the Super Mario brother's game and asked me to knit a Princess Peach doll for her. Since there is no pattern for a knitted one, I had to create my own. And here is the result. She is 19 inches tall and cute as a button. The second picture is the cartoon image that I tried to make my doll look like. Hope you like her!

Just added two more pics, last pic shows her in the begining stages.

10  Jelly Bean Jerusalem now on You Tube in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by chek101 on: March 25, 2014 10:16:30 AM
Hi fellow Craftsters!

I just wanted to update you all on the Jerusalem painting I did in jelly beans. Just recently received an email asking me about it and what happened to it. Which is why I am posting this update. As far as I know it is still waiting in the wings to be hung at The Mid-Island JCC (Jewish Community Center) in Plainview, NY. The lobby is still under construction and so the painting is stored somewhere in the building till the lobby work is completed. I did go there and rework the mid section of the painting so as to get rid of the seam that ran thru it. Didn't get to take a picture tho...waiting till it is framed and hung.

Another thing I was prompted to do was to post a video of the "making of Jerusalem" on You Tube (not all that user friendly - still can't get the "reply" window to open up for me ), and so after working all morning on the video I was finally able to get to post my video.

You can access here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcs0Khvhq7Q

Thanks for all your kind words and encouragement thru out the entire process!
