Hi!

Hello everyone! I hope all is well! Painting and journal making I have been doing this week. Last week I was visiting with family and friends and enjoying all the lovely sunshine. Not so much sunshine this week. Tonight it's rain and thunderstorms, which I love. This Sunday I attend a reception for a visual art show that will be running until the end of August. I have three paintings in the show. Pretty cool!

I really hope everyone had a great weekend! I did! Here is a journal I made for a customer with a painted whale on the cover.

Copper & Turquoise!



These slender turquoise stones have been wrapped in copper wire, oxidized and sanded to create depth and shine. They hang from hand formed stainless steel ear wires.

New Jewelry!



I hope everyone is happy and well! I'm trying to balance being outside enjoying the beautiful weather and staying inside and making jewelry, journals and drawing and painting. Our temperatures are now only warming up so staying inside is hard. I've listed some new pieces in my Etsy shop and I will continue to add new work all week. Have an awesome weekend!

Painting!

This is a detail of a painting I did of Signal Hill. I wanted to capture the atmosphere the heavy storm clouds were creating on a late summer afternoon and the light that was shining on the water. I used my creative license and added the tree for interest. Oil on stretched canvas.

Journal!


 I was inspired to create this little journal after my visit to Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve last week. The cover is made from canvas with an image transfer of a photo of a gannet that I took. I added paint and a white button closure to finish.

Christmas Earrings!





Today is a snow day and the whole city is shut down. It's nice to stay inside and drink eggnog coffee and make pretty Christmas earrings and other things Christmassy. I do like going out into the snow though. It's very pretty and peaceful.

Spirals!



    Spirals appear everywhere in nature and have different meanings in many different cultures such as rebirth, renewal, balance, infinity, journey, progress and development. Whatever the meaning, I love the spiral and use it often in my jewelry and art.

Prettiness!




I have been busy working on portrait commissions the last little while, which is great because I love to draw. I have also been making journals and jewelry in between. Soon I will start preparing for Christmas by making my gifts. Hope everyone is good.

A Christmas Journal!




This journal was a lot of fun to make. It's probably one of my favorites. I transferred an image of an old world santa and some text from a book using gel medium, added paint and a button closure to finish it. Now in my Etsy shop

New Journal!




Wow, I can't keep up with the time! I've been so busy exhibiting, working on commissions, filling jewelry orders and making journals for Christmas. It's all good! I love everything that I do. Here's a pretty little journal that I made today. The cover is heavy canvas with an image transfer of a bluebird on the front. I added paint and a button closure. I also made another one that I will post in the next few days. I hope everyone is well. All the best!
