Aqua Dream at the Ojai Valley Museum

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

This altered Barbie ornament is available at OVM. She is a unique one of a kind piece.

Her title is Aqua Dream because she is dreamy in my favorite color: aqua. Seriously, her surface is beautiful painted with acrylics and copper leafed and sanded and finished with a strong varnish.

Also available at the museum: Snowflake
Painted with acrylics and gold leafed and sanded and textured, she would look lovely on any Christmas tree! or hanging as a decorative work of art from a hook.

snowmen

These guys were made with tiny gourds. The seeds inside them make them wobble.
This ornament is going to the Ojai Valley Museum for the art and book fair Dec 6th.

These recent figures appear deceptively simple. There is an intensive process of sanding and re-painting and sanding and re-painting to achieve the organic looking colorations/spots

Ornaments, and folio

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

I had meant to start posting ornaments from my collection, of all handmade, artist made ornaments but I have bee so sick the past week I did not even get started. So. I’ll post three today to make up for lost time and also one that I designed last year for sale in my etsy shop.
This is one available in my shop:

From my collection this one is made by artist “Dolly Gagging”

This one is by artist Diane Redmore Moore:

and this one is by artist Carla Naron:

I do so enjoy my unique ornaments!

Also I have been working on little collage folios, they are about 4 x 5 inches and can hold atcs or aceos or little photographs or they can be stared at and displayed 😀
this is one of them:


I used thick canvas and they fit so nicely in the hand!

Christmas Eve! You better Not Pout!

amaryllis

amaryllis progress !

And I did not even get out half the cards I intended, so I offer up the high res image I used for my Christmas card. She has the perfect spoiled brat pouty expression, “YOu better not pout”!! I have uploaded this image high res so if anyone wants to use it or have a copy for an ornament, just cut out her shape and punch a hole at the top after you have printed her. Hang her on your tree, she looks cute. I put red wings behind mine.

You Better Not Pout!!

I simply can not believe its the 25th, and another year is almost over! However you celebrate, whatever your religion or not, have a joyous holiday!
