About Me

My photo
I live in Mooringsport La. and work in construction full time and dabble in art when ever I can. I would love to be able to do my art full time--who knows, maybe one day I will. In the past year, I started doing Festivals, trying to sell my Art. It is ALOT of work, but worth it. I have met so many people with the same interests as myself.

It is Monday morning and just getting in after helping my son's girlfriend take the critters to the vet--after one escape and one bitten-in-half leash.  Whew!! also went out looking for leather belts for my pursese, but was unsuccessful in finding what I wanted.  Another trip, I guess.
The picture above is one that I have been working on.  I painted the bird and birch limbs onto a board that had been covered with sheetrock mud, paint, and medium.  I plan on adding a layer of self-leveling gel (golden) and the adding more flowers.  The flowers are not painted on, they are decoupaged.  The outside border was drawn with a sharpie and filled in with acrylic paint.  I also added some text with a text stamp.

A close up.....

Really, that is all that I have completed this weekend.  I have about 5 pieces in the works and need to do some finishing up.  I hope to get out there some this week and at least finish 3 pieces.  I am at the varnishing stage on one piece.  One piece I want to do some beading on and this one.  I have 2 more pieces in progress and a Janis Joplin drawn out, but not begun painting yet.  I have so many plans and so little time..............

Hope you all have a great week!!
