Here's my first mobile blog entry, you sweet and patient readers! I am embracing the unknown and the intimidating in the new year. This includes learning new technology and tools, exploring new avenues and opportunities for local artists here in Jacksonville (and hopefully beyond), and meeting and network among my artist peers. I'll be adding the things I learn on this blog!
I'll be keeping this blog short (since this is a new experience for me and I'm not entirely sure it's going to work). I'm going to share a little picture of my dog, Marty McFly Ivey, who was helping me quilt during one particularly cold day! Oh Marty! How I love you!
Oh, I'll give you one more! I love this one because all his wrinkles make him look like he's melting into the carpet.
Until next time, my friends!
Preserving Treasured Friends in a Painting
Happy New Year readers! I trust that each of you have stepped into the year 2014 with a renewed zest for life and a determination to be your happiest, healthiest, and most creative you! I have a steady slew of things to show you, as I had to keep several projects "under wraps" as it were for Christmas! I will begin with Baxley! Baxley (aka Baxleyman/Furface/Good Boy) was a dear pet that belonged to a very good friend of mine. Baxley lived a long life filled with love and was a treasured lifelong friend. Therefore, we immortalized him in paint to keep the warm memories alive for many years to come. This is an acrylic paint painting on stretched canvas and is 16" x 20." We decided to have a tree in the background in which to hide his many nicknames, as an added unique detail.
I am so glad to have Baxley as a part of the dog gallery! There is much more to come this year! Stay tuned - keep the music on - and those creative wheels turning folks!
I am always looking for new and unique projects to entertain myself (and my two children) as well as expand and diversify my portfolio and skills! Here is where I share what I have been doing and all of my "Pet Projects!" Thanks for stopping by!
