PPF 10/11

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited. I have another exhibit for my hanging leather art that begins on March 2, 2019. I have enough pieces to fill the wall but, I have some new designs that I want to make up. 
In the mean time my exhibit that is going on now has reaped some sales. They cannot go through the library they are done privately and that is OK with the library. demARTs was a huge success and I have 5 people who would like classes from me for abstract painting. Watercolor classes are coming along and even though I really like the medium acrylics are still my favorite. Now for some art for this week. I have been doing my early morning draws and here are a few. 
I haven't drawn a scull in awhile so thought it was time.

I do like how the eyes came out on this one.

The neck on this is horrible. There is a lot of tooth to this paper and every time I tried to erase it got worse.  I do like the hand though.
 Who knows where I was going with this. 
A 15 minute quick draw

I really love this one. Gold leaf in the waves really sets it off.  
8x10" gallery canvas.

 Another world is 16x20" gallery canvas. Just through some paint on and this is what came out.

Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting Paint Party Friday
Looking forward to seeing all of the art this week too.

Honor and integrity in art, in life.

  2. Beautiful art. Congrats on your successes. Happy PPF, Valerie

  3. Big congrats on your sales Nicole and well done on securing the next exhibition. You art works are fabulous, I sometimes find the ones we are the least happy with are the most valuable as we can learn so much from them.
    Happy PPF & have a fabulous weekend Tracey x

  4. Congrats on the new exhibit coming in 2019 and on the sales you have had from the present one. Great art faces today. It's hard to select a favorite, after the skull of course.
