My next projects…

O’k I have decided to some items with a Valentine’s theme. I found some great stuff while straightening out my work area.

I also found some Chiyogami paper. Hmmm…yeah, I will use these for the collages too.

I also want to do something for “The Year of the Rat.” I heard the Year of the Rat was going to be lucky for Rabbits..so whoohoo!

Tomorrow I may make a trip to the supply store. I want to make some hairclips and I need some hard cardboard for some pins I want to do. I have all this fabric that I am not doing anything with. Yeah, I have a lot of ideas. I have all this tissue paper for my chigirie art that I have yet to do…so much, so much, so much..
My art related New Years resolutions are to put myself and my work out there more. I also promise to have more confidence in my abilities and stop selling myself short. I promise to produce more and to take more chances in my work. I always play it safe.

My Chair

Soooo, this is one of the items I got for Christmas:

I really needed a chair level with my work table in my studio! It swivels too! I should be able to do a lot more pieces in there. Lately, I have been totally hooked on doing computer graphics. I need to get back to something more organic (for lack of a better word).

This is a painting I started YEARS ago…never finished it…hmmm perhaps I will go the 7-11 and get a can of Minute Maid Lemonade so I can finish this one. It is watercolor on Bristol board.

In case you haven’t gone, go look at my flash page with all the Twelve Days of Christmas display..you have to click on the tree ornaments to see the illustrations.
