Whale of a Canvas

I often ask my daughter her opinion of my works in progress. She’s a teenager, so sometimes her enthusiasm can be lacking and she would rather check her phone than come into my studio to look at what I’m working on.  But, she had a sensational reaction to my Autumn Hues Girl and asked me if I could create a canvas for her, but showcasing an Orca Whale.  I thought it would be a whale of a canvas (pun totally intended!).

Mardi Gras Tags

Hi friends!  Today I’m sharing with you some Mardi Gras inspired tags.  I thought I should change it up a little bit from all the hearts and Valentine’s art.  This year Fat Tuesday falls on February 17th, and if you’ve ever been to New Orleans during Mardi Gras, you know how colorful it can be.  I tried to capture those colors in these tags that can be used for presents, book markers or simply collecting.

Torn Hearts Collection

I’ve been so busy this first weekend of the year!  I’ve been in my studio creating a Valentines collection.  I’ve named it the Torn Hearts Collection.  It’s not meant to be a sad collection, it’s simply the common thread in all of the pieces.  I didn’t want any straight cut edges in any of the canvases.  So that meant that I tore all of the papers before adhering them.  Hence, all of the hearts are torn.
