Since I found my creative groove a couple of months ago, I've been all over the place. And I've got the piles of mess to prove it.  Sewing in the basement and on the kitchen table, bits of yarn surrounding my television watching chair, easel and paints beside the window downstairs, cutting board and quilt scraps on the dining room table, scrapbook stuff all over my craft area downstairs...see...all over the place. 

I thought you might like a peek at some Artist Trading Cards I made recently to swap. 
This woman is drawn on top of a old calendar that I cut up. I like the effect given by seeing the illustration through my artwork. Mixed Media. 

This one is of Frida Kahlo and I named it,  "She Wore a Tattoo of Pain." 
Mixed media.


Frida and Diego. Colored Pencils.

Sharing a bite to eat.  Acrylic paint.



I hope you enjoyed the glimpse into my messy, messy world.

  6. thank you so much for sharing some of your artwork. I love mixed media - it's so forgiving. I am in a funk right now, myself. I have 4 paintings in my studio (aka: basement) that I cannot seem to finish. I lack motivation. Maybe I can catch some here!

  16. Love your work! Hope you make big bucks off of some of it. Art is all about making messes! The messier the better, the more creative the juices.
