PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 6/16

Hi Everyone!

Well this time I have had offline and taking care of DH with his back procedures has been a good time for me. It would have been better if we could have gone to AZ.... sighhh.... but at least I have been able to do some things I really love. As most of you know I was a very successful bead artist for most of my life.  lupus made it so difficult that several years ago I had to stop beading. That doesn't  mean I have lost my love for it. I still am very active in the beading world. The last month or so my hands have calmed down a lot. They haven't been shaking at all and I have a bit more strength in them. Still no feeling in my hands but I have been able to to a bit of beading. I am thrilled with this. Now it is not the massive advanced pieces I use to do but at least I can bead a bit right now.  I have also kept up with my art every day but will show all of those later this week. I am at 166 pieces of art in 166 days. I am counting the bead patterns I am showing today. It's all art. 
I look forward to catching up with all of you. 
 A big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday.

You may remember this acrylic painting I did a while back, well I made a bead pattern from it. 

Loom Bead Pattern
This is another one of my Crow patterns in Loom Beading
Even though I do not smoke medical marijuana I am an advocate of it and have many pieces of beaded jewelry and lighter covers with pot leaves. This is my newest addition.
I also love predator birds. The Eagle is one of my favorites. I do have this tested
The last one is of course you guessed it another skull. How can I not with my hands being so good.

This one I am testing right now and it's almost finished. 
Yes this is one of our looms made by DH
Looms by Mike

I had to use different colored beads from the pattern. Pattern beads are ordered. I just had to bead it!
Wishing all of you a happy weekend.

  5. These are gorgeous! And fortunate that when you aren't up to par you can pick up a brush and continue your colorful expressions. Beadweaving is such a detailed process but your examples here show us what can be done. Lovely! Happy PPF

  10. You know how to use your blessings. Being able to bead again at any level is a wonderful, spiritual lift for you ... I am happy for you and impressed with your efforts. I love the pattern you made from the painting. Beading is something I have never tried and probably never will as I find as I get older the agility of my fingers is declining, but I love the art and what you do.

  11. Your art is amazing, Nicole. I can't imagine doing such intricate work with fully working hands, much less with the difficulties you cope with. I am so impressed that you can get a beaded work to look like its prototype. The paintings are all beautiful.
