Another Little Piece of Art....

Yesterday I finally put all my Christmas cards in the mail. Whew!! Hopefully they will all arrive in time.

Today I have lots of errands to run so this will be short....but I promised you I'd show another piece of art I finished so here it is....(This is 9" x 12" on Bristol.)

"She Watches Over Land and Sea"

Once again I messed up the hand. I just can't seem to get them right. Also I have a halo sketched in with pencil but I'm undecided about adding it. What do you think??


And just because I love them so much here are a couple of quiz thingies....

You Are 71% Creative

You are beyond creative. You are a true artist - even if it's not in the conventional sense of the word.
You love creating for its own sake, and you find yourself quite inspired at times. Never!!!

Your Career Type: Artistic

You are expressive, original, and independent.
Your talents lie in your artistic abilities: creative writing, drama, crafts, music, or art.

You would make an excellent:

Actor - Art Teacher - Book Editor
Clothes Designer - Comedian - Composer
Dancer - DJ - Graphic Designer
Illustrator - Musician - Sculptor

The worst career options for you are conventional careers, like bank teller or secretary.

So, true....I absolutely HATED working in an office! I did it but I wasn't happy about it.


Have a great day!!


  1. Many years ago, in the dark ages, when I did fashion illustration, instead of actually drawing the hand, I would just draw the indication of a hand with a few simple lines. Maybe that would help you-otherwise the drawing looks great. Almost female dragon-like

  2. She's great Janet..!
    Will you add a colour or leave her as is..?
    I enjoyed your black and whites, with a colour there a few weeks ago.

  3. Your mermaid is one of your VERY BEST! I wonder too, will you add a dab of color?


  4. She's beautiful as she is.


  5. Hello creative, artistic friend! The mermaid angel lady is beautiful! I like the way the halo shows just a little. I know it wasn't your intention, but it's interesting that way.

  6. I think she's gorgeous just the way she is, Janet.

  7. Janet hello!

    gosh I was tickled pink to see you admit you are a true artist "I like many others" are in orr of your designs, your skills and your passion......."Mrs Artist" now that fits you ever so well truly it does.

    I think your mermaid is also purfect, to keep changing bits like hands to suit the world is not what I believe an artist is. I believe the hands are what makes the art reflect back on you!

  8. Yeah, office work sucks but it pays the bills. For you, I pick clothes designer or graphic designer. The halo? Hard to decide. She IS a mermaid, but she also has angel wings. I know..YOU decide! LOL xoxoxoxoxo

  9. Now you just know I approve fully of anything *Mermaid!!!*
    I love her graceful lines and curvatures.. AS for the halo, Add the one above your head!! :)

    PEace n luv, Kai xx

  10. Hi Janet,

    Well, my provider wouldn't let me come look yesterday or anything so today I'm back. I think she looks very romantic/etheral. Sort of a "Find Your Style" thinking going on here. She's great.

    I was 86 % creative and had the same category as you in the last one. See, sister under the skin or in the brain cells. Like you I did office work and deplored every minute of it.

    Also, I have trouble not making lopsided stuff and paws on animals and for sure hands. I think I try to tell too much with them.

  11. I love the idea of a winged mermaid. Yours is stunning just like it is Janet! Wow!

  12. I do like your mermaid angel. As for the halo, usually less is more, but I kind of like it just barely there. Now if you colored in her tail in fish scale colors -- your favorites shades of turquoise and lavender -- (just pale) and reflected these colors in the halo... but it's your picture and it must reflect you!

  13. I like your drawings a lot!


    You've been tagged at my place!


  14. yep hands are tough, but the rest of her is fun! I like the swirly movement she gives off.

  15. She is beautiful Janet!! Love her pose.
