PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 10/25

Hi Everyone!

It is Paint Party Friday!!! I have enjoyed so much visiting the other artists who join in. Be sure that you visit them too. Big thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting this event. 
This week I am actually working on a small version of a large piece I will be creating. No I don't have it finished yet. The prep work is laborious but that foundation is the main attraction. So maybe next week I will be able to show that.  In the meantime here are a few pieces.

Abstract tile made for a customers home. It has lots of texture and very shinny.
12x12"

12x24" canvas acrylics. "Wondering"

Gourd, leather, seed beads, rocks, crystal, crow beads, pony beads, fire polish beads, sinew. This is for my Sister. She gave me this Crystal shortly before she passed away. While I was making this she was on my mind and the Crystal just seemed perfect for this.



 12x16" oil on canvas abstract. "There Peeking"


Another tile for the same customer. Love how this bird came out.
