Illustration Friday - Wind

I had this illustration done hours ago but just could not get it loaded up to blogger - what a pain. Illustration Friday theme - Wind and there is an "ill-wind" blowing in this illustration!

Shore Road - Watercolor

I am sick to death of painting fall landscapes. Just finished this "Shore Road" and it is kind of Hopper like - I didn't plan it that way but after it was finished and I took the photo it kind of reminded me of a Hopper. This painting is a watercolor 7 1/2 X11 and on e-bay now. I like to paint smaller sized paintings for e-bay as they are easier to send out.

Halloween Image

Halloween or Samhain, as I call it, is my favorite holiday. I have been making some images in Photoshop and will post them in the next few days.

Halloween Postoids

I love to make postoids (faux postage). I haven't made any in awhile so I thought I might make some for Halloween. Here are 4 samples. I print them on large label paper with a peel off backing so they stick just like a stamp and they are stamp size. I use them on all my mailings and the postman just loves them. I am going to make some for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year also. Photoshop is an amazing tool!

The Stream - Watercolor

There are so many streams that feed into our lake in The Hideout. This is one of them in fall color. This is a small painting 7 1/2 X11 inches and on e-bay now. I am getting sick of painting fall - I think my fall paintings have just about run their course until next year although I am not looking forward to painting snow!

How Fall Feels - Watercolor

I love this watercolor - this is how fall feels rather than how it looks, if you can understand what I mean. I love to do these watery watercolors but I don't do then too often. I took a lot of photos in Pa. these past 2 weekends and am having fun painting from them.

Fall Walk - Watercolor

This is a walking trail at Tobbyhanna State Park in Pa. - I took a lot of photos here and I want to paint some more fall paintings from them. It was a beautiful sunny day and the trees were awesome. This is a small watercolor 7X11 and is on e-bay now.

Watercolor - Fall Lakeside

I am getting in to this fall painting - I like this one because the colors are not as bright - but when the sun shines on the trees some of the colors are brilliant. I have a bunch of this watercolor paper and I don't like it much but I have to use it, so I am doing these smaller paintings for e-bay. I think it is a little too smooth for my liking but hey it still works!

Illustration Friday - Smitten

Illustration Friday theme - Smitten. This is a hand made collage, open page spread from an Altered Book I did entitled "Love Tokens". Nothing says "Smitten" like love letters - especially love letters signed with a kiss. The little verse on the bottom says:

"This visionary theme is thine
From one who loves thee still
Tis writ to thee a valentine
But call it what you will."

Winkie and Smutt

Nothing to do with art but this photo was taken in my studio so that should count for something. Anyway, this is something you never see - Winkie and Smutt sitting together on the same piece of cat furniture - just had to take a picture.
