Back in the Studio Again

Since my kiddo started school again I've been able to get back into a studio routine. Yesterday I cleaned up a few things then make a couple of block prints. I don't have a drying rack, so I just tape the prints on the wall to dry.

I carved this block last year, I think? It could've been in 2010, I can't remember. I just know that I don't have any good prints from it.

Once I get everything packaged, I'll add some prints to my Etsy shop

Shark Week!

Sometimes you have an idea and it's so good you just have to paint it. This is one of those times.

101 Dalmatians Kids Set

I've been working on the set for the Thomaston Upson Arts Council's Annual Summer Theatre Production. This year's play is 101 Dalmatians Kids. I really enjoy the kids production because I can be big, bright, and bubbly with my work. Yesterday I finished up the scene for Cruella DeVil's Fur Vault, a room where she keeps the puppies and her furs. You can click on the photos to enlarge them. 

The idea was to have a lot of puppies in this scene. Some kids in puppy costumes will be in front of this backdrop so I had to make sure the painted puppies were big enough to be noticed. And I couldn't make them too cute and happy since they are trapped. 

I'll post picture from another scene once I get all the props finished for it.

Painting Progress: Bearded Lady

I love when an idea strikes you and it just works! Here's my most recent watercolor painting from start to finish:

A rough sketch.

Laying down the lines and the dark blacks.

And then everything else. 

Stamped and done!

She's now listed in my Etsy shop.
