Some things have to go


Some of you know, I do daily (almost) sketches.  They are piling up so I decided it’s time for some of them to go away.  Some will go in the  Etsy Store I’ve opened and some will go in the recycle pile. 

Prices for those in the Etsy Store are $5 or $10 depending on size and time.  They’re quick sketches as is, no mat, no frame.  Check it out, here’s a link to my store.

The recycle ones will get a coat of gesso and a new sketch.  I hate the idea of wasting good paper.

Almost Ready

Next week Art Walk opens here in Grand Haven.  I have entered in two categories, painting and mixed media.  The painting has been done, just needs a title and then photographed and framed.

This morning I finished the mixed media piece…

Artisan Gallery small

It’s a monoprint with collage added but this time I did a little experimenting.  I added some copper, the door.  To hold it in place I used industrial strength double sided tape, a carpet tack for a door handle and small nails opposite the door handle and to add an accent to the window,  It’s small, just 8’' x 8”.  The framed is 1 and 7/8th” deep so it can either sit on a shelf or hang on a wall.  It will be at Calico Cat along with another piece that isn’t officially part of Art Walk.  The price is $95.00

I’ll post the other one here when it’s finished.

And this week I brought back a piece that was in a show at the Gallery Uptown… a departure that I think I’m going to visit again. This is Aunt Agnes, I had so much fun making her that I think I need to do more dolls.  She has lots of embellishments that were great fun to add.aunt agnes
And I have a few images that I’m wanting to do larger paintings of, it’s time to get back to that too.
