Some of This and Some of That...

You can take one look at my work table and see that I've been busy...


I thought when I had a bigger work table I'd have more room to work but I just seem to spread out and make a bigger mess!

Here are some of the things I've been doing...




These are all 5 x 5" canvases.
They're going to the salon next week.

I also did a face sketch...

I hope you can see it.
I haven't finished it yet...
she may end up being a painting.
I'm thinking about playing along with the 29 faces challenge.

I also did a spread in a "new" art journal...

I'm using an old book about cats. It's a fairly large book...
9.75" x 11.50"
I used two of the gel prints I did recently.



I'll add some words to these two pages but for now I'm leaving them alone.

I still have my 30-day project to get you caught up on but I'll save that for another day.

  8. The small canvases all looks great, and with beautiful colors too. Can't wait to see that face done, I'm sure you will come up with something nice. You've really been a busy bee. Nothing much going on here, I'll have to get used to the new computer and that's not excactly my favorite kind of work. But, I couldn't do without it either.

  17. Hi Janet, I love messy art tables. Mine stays a mess. When it's clean it makes it harder for me to 'jump in again'. Also, i really like your 5x5's. They're beautiful.
