PAINT PARTY FRIDAY 12/28

Hi Everyone!!!

First I want to wish all of you the very best for 2018. It will be an interesting year. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for another year of hosting our party every week. I look forward to a new year of art, to see what all of you will create and sharing it all on Paint Party Friday 
I am ending the year with the feeling that I accomplished and improved quite a bit in my overall art.  For me that is all I can as for.  This year on my Beadwright.com I am making as much elephant art as I can to sell. Every piece of designated art I will donate 10% of the sale to http://www.savetheelephants.org. This is something that is very important to me and my daughter.  I have a few things listed but my site won't reopen until Jan.1  So for the art this week.

A quick sketch
 

New Cabochons

and Elephants for the "Save Me" series. I draw the shapes
then make a stencil. 








Happy New Year!

  6. I like this sketch so much. I think it is really hard to capture faces whether they are people or animals. I think your skill in face sketches really grew this year. Is this lion a new direction for you? I am appalled at the slaughter of elephants, and other animals as well. Trumps removal of the ban on ivory coming into this country is one of the many ways he shows he is no compassion for any person or living creature.

  15. Yes, Save the Elephants ... I love that you are doing this, Nicole. In Thailand, north of Chiang Mai there is a camp that cares for rescued Elephants and it takes volunteers for a week at a time. People from all over the world go to spend a week caring for the elephants and learning what they can do to protect them. You and your daughter should look into it ... it is worth the cost of the trip. As always your art is beautiful. I hope you put a little statement on the back of the elephant pictures telling what you are doing ... it makes it even more special :) Happy New Year, Nicole ...

  17. What a great idea to create elephant art AND donate 10% of the sale to the organisation. Both winning as I see it. :)

    Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year and looking forward so see what you create next year.
