Books and Bits

Here's a few new books and a new mixed media painting. I have a feeling most of this will end up on Etsy. The Beasty painting already is....Have a look HERE. He was a inhabitant of one of my many sketchbooks until finding his way onto canvas. Hope you enjoyed the visit!

Mixed Media Paintings

Here are some recent mixed media paintings I recently finished. The bird painting is rather about 2 and half feet long and maybe 8 inches tall (I didn't measure). It's painted on a piece of leftover plywood from a project from Jacob.

The Dala horse is painted on recycled book board from a discarded book (and a leftover from a folded art book arts class I taught). It is currently for sale at my Etsy store. Check it out HERE!

But of these are some first attempts at making a mixed media painting. It was really fun and very "painterly"! I have plans to make some more. I'll keep you posted.

Thanksgiving is Thursday and I have so much to be grateful for this year. I hope you do too!
