I set a very strict budget for Christmas shopping, and stuck to it. yay!
My Christmas shopping is done.
This weekend I will be baking up a storm: cookies, cakes and mince meat pies. I love the smell of an oven full of pastries in the chilly air of my loft.
Today a ton of painting ideas were pouring onto the pages of my sketchbook. Somehow I think the cooler weather helped jump-start my brain (or maybe it was the coffee).
Once the sketches form into a little more then the chicken-scratch rough ideas that they are now, I will post some photos.
I have uploaded some new work into my Etsy store. Most of the pieces I'm working on now I will be secretly stowing in a dark corner until their premier reveal at the Three Graces Gallery in Feb.
-Happy holidays all
-Wishing you a white Christmas

I started my little comic in the sketchbook for the "Sketchbook Project". Before sending it out on it's travels I hastily made some fairly poor scans of the images. I am now in the process of cleaning up the images on Photoshop and adding text.
Working on a comic, even a mini one like this has proven to be a lot of work, but great fun.

I have been hording my vacation time so it will be lovely to have a much needed two week vacation in the country.
Above I have posted some images of the Save The Dates and the wedding invites. I used a gocco printer to print the text section of the invites. I used 4by6 (the company I use for my business cards) for the color map as well as the fox and bunny "paper dolls".
A lot of wedding projects will be hand created to give me an opportunity to work on my design skills. I really need to practice Illustrator and In Design, so I have worked out a Comic/program project for myself. I will be posting some snippets of my work here in the next few months.

I can only hope that there will be numerous woodland creatures included.Below is one of my pieces... my own interpretation of a wild woodland girl.
In other news I am working on a short comic.
I have posted some sketches below. They are not the best quality photos, but I usually end up taking photos at night after the sun has gone down.

I was recently cleaning up my apartment and I came across this little painting. It is a tiny little thing about 2" square, painted with acrylic paints on a piece of illustration board. I could not find a frame for it so I am offering it as a give-away prize.
Please reply to this post.
Provide your e mail address.
On July 21st I will check the posts and randomly choose a recipient. I will e-mail you and ask you for your address so I can send you this tiny painting.
I was just informed that I got into the Boston Arts festival again this year. This year it will only be two days, Saturday the 10th of Sep and Sunday the 11th.
I will also be participating in the Fort Point Open Studios; Oct 14th 15th and 16th.
In between my day job (really a night job) and painting I will be working and selling my work at the FPAC store, right next to the yummy Flour Bakery.
Below are some snippets of paintings I have been working on:

The next few weeks will be slowing down a bit (no stints of jury duty, dentist appointments or stitches), finally I will have some time to get back to painting.
The most exciting news: In June I will have a piece in the "Picture This" exhibit at the Danforth Museum of art. This show will showcase new work created by contemporary picture book illustrators living and working in New England. The juried work will be featured in the Danforth's Children's Gallery.http://www.danforthmuseum.org/exhibits.html

I just visited Portsmouth NH. I went up to see my work at the Three Graces Gallery and show Tom around my old stomping ground.The gallery was great. It is full of many wonderful paintings, ceramics and some beautiful wooden tables. I ended up purchasing a little fox assemblage on blocks, so cute.
There are numerous little shops and cafes in Portsmouth. We spent a majority of the day hanging out at Breaking New Grounds sipping cappuccinos. I sketched and nibbled on some Ceres Street bakery Mexican chocolate cookies and Tom nursed his hangover in a dimly lit corner of the cafe. I forgot how early everything closed and ended up missing out on trying on a ring at a hand made craft store. They closed at 4:00! I did find a pile of little treasures. I ended up picking up some antique picture frames and a glass milk bottle.
If you are interested in any of the work at The Three Graces it is available on line as well. They offer FREE SHIPPING! (for a limited time)
