As some of you, after going through an elaborate 3-step process, I was notified Wednesday night that I was accepted into Juneau Artists Gallery (JAG). It's a juried venue, so of course I was nervous about having my work judged by peers, but it all turned out. I'll be moving my art into the gallery this coming Sunday!
In the meantime, here are a couple of more pages I made for the ongoing nature journal swap I'm in. These are for Karin.

I've been playing around with altered envelopes. I altered one plain white envie; and I made the other envie out of a decorative shopping bag. These are way fun to make! I know there are a few black marks on the white envie, but once I put on an address, they'll be covered up!

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday. We're celebrating tonight: 4 other couples coming to dinner. The menu: Mexican food.
But this is the piece I bought my husband back in July for our anniversary. It was too perfect to pass up. It's a Brian Andreas piece. It's now hanging on a wall. I also have a cool bench that is by Brian Andreas. He's so quirky; I just love his work!
The bench I have is similar in design to this, but it has a different saying on it.

This weekend I participated in a postcard (4x6) "athon." Typically art trading site athons are media driven, i.e. draw-a-thon, collage-a-thon, etc; but in this instance all medias were welcome, but the theme had to be love. Well, according to the Beatles, that's all you need, right?

Ok...so I'm a day late. But since it's my first post this year, I'm allowed to say it! I do hope 2010 brings you all great health, peace, and prosperity. and a lot of art time!
Here are a few pieces to kick off the new year. One of the 8x10s was completed before Christmas; the rest were completed between Christmas and New Year's day.
The 2 8x10s are for a journal swap. The Heart is for a zetti heart magnet challenge. I hand-drew the person on the first page. My drawings were based on some teachings Teesha Moore posted on her blog.
