PPF with art

Hello Everyone!!!

I am so glad that this week I have a PC and I can show art. Life is busier than ever with being on the art committee. I am loving it soooo much and it is something I needed. Today, I helped make ginger bread houses for kids to decorate on Saturday. No, it is not part of the art committee, some extra help was needed so I joined in. Every year the library has 200 ginger breads houses, (made of graham cracker and icing) for kids to decorate and take home.  The task was fun and messy with lots of laughing. 
I am also getting ready for two exhibits. One, of the wall hangings of my sculpted leather  and the series I am doing "Black to White". This is a good exercise of not working with color, yet there is so much depth and visual concept. I am excited about the work.  
A big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting Paint Party Friday and to the artists who join in each week. All of you are a constant inspiration to me.  
Now for art. Click on the photos to see details.

A City of it's Own.
The brown colors that have come through 
just happened I did not add the browns.
It is very interesting how it appeared to make great shadows. 

 Not quite finished with this one. Still needs some highlight on the trees. Lots of background texture.

This is one I showed before the Red. I like it better this way.

 I have also painted some new cabs, you can see all of them at but these are my favorites this week.

 "Just Floral"
Also some 5x5" Glass tiles. 
Oooohhh these are so pretty.


Honor and integrity in art, in life.

  4. So much beautiful artwork to share with us today, I'm so glad you are now up and running. I know too well how frustrating it can be when technology fails us.
    It's amazing how colours can just create themselves, I really enjoy watching paint make it's own mark and evolve.
