Some more Year of the Rat ATC

I have just about finished my space themed year of the Rat ATC (artist trading card). I noticed I didn’t line the planet in the upper left corner. Other than that, it is done.

This next ATC I am having some issues with.
in progress ATC

The main problem is deciding what colors to use. I want the star to appear iridescent like gem and rainbow will be the tail. I just know that the starry gem is going to take a while to do. I will have to build layers to get it how I want itPonder. I am using gouche and acrylic on this ATC. The red and gold are working very well for me. The border will be gold leaf (using a gold leafing pen). I will definitely use those colors on the 3rd ATC I am working on!

All for Love

I normally get depressed around Valentine’s Day. But I have found focus in doing these illustration inspired by Valentine’s Day. It is still early. Who knows how I will feel come February 12th or 13th šŸ˜‰
I think I have done all I can for the following illustration titled “Love Letter 1.”

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.
