art lifts me up

why why why must it rain on weekends? my husband ends up so bored. thankfully, i have art. it's a great creative escape when weather is harsh.
here's some more art. it's not what i made this weekend; i still have to scan that!
the bird is for a blue and purple chunky 4x4 swap. the postcard is for a swap wherein it had to contain a celestial image plus a zettified vintage kid.

where does the time go?

ok, really i wanted to title this "catching up," but i've so overused that title. same difference, so much to do, so little time. so once again i've been a bit absent, but hey, i did get my taxes done and made a ton of phone calls to schedule misc. appointments. today i might even get that census form filled out.
so here's a bit of art. thanks for stopping by!

home tweet home is the front page for that nature journal swap i'm in. i only have 1 more person to do! the mushrooms are the back side of that page.
and then there are two pages i made for two people in that teesha moore journal swap i'm in. i love working on those journals--one of my fav things ever.
the round image is an altered cd for a challenge wherein we had to feature a vintage image of a child. i put a paper whimsy head on mine.

my wall at juneau artists gallery

finally, here are a few photos from the gallery. i have my normal wall space, actually i rent a "half wall," which is 20" wide. and then as the featured artist i get a little extra space. i also have a few bits + pieces throughout the gallery on "community walls," and on various displays.
also, when you are working the gallery, you can put a piece of art on an easel and set it in the lobby, right outside the store door, so there's a photo of that,too.
couldn't fit the wall all in one photo; so it's broken into 3 shots...and the shots aren't appearing here together. so the photos are middle wall, top wall, featured artist spot, bottom wall, easel.

a couple more canvases

here are a couple more canvases imade for the art show. i had to use my camera, so the images aren't as clear as when i'm able to scan. the eggs are not that dark! the eggs were inspired by pam carriker. but she draws her eggs; mine are collaged.

some canvas art

here are a few small canvases i've recently created.

the body of the girl on the snail is from landofnod. the head is from teesha moore.
the woman on the crow is also from teesha, as well as some of the borders on that canvas. that canvas was created for a dear friend for her birthday.
the other canvases are for sale at juneau artists gallery.

catching up

(gosh, that's become my most frequently used title!)

oh well!

i have a lot to post so i'll just do a bit for the next few days. here's some misc. art i've made for swaps: an altered envelope requiring a transportation theme; a "thrinchie" (3x3) magnet requiring a mushroom, some blue + orange inchies (1x1); and some magnets (i did the birds on circles).

dashing through

sorry, sorry: it's been a while since i blogged. will catch up this weekend; i do have some art to post.
past 2 weeks have been so busy. i had a birthday and had a few birthday lunches w/friends.
also, i am the featured artist at the Juneau Artists Gallery for the local First Friday event around town. There's a write up in the weekly newspaper.
so i've got a few things to finish up for that, plus i have to run out and get goodies for the event....
