Around here lately...
It seems that I am surrounded in water, as it has been raining. Big rain.
That's fine with me because I adore water.
I am especially fond of the sea...
it's hues of turquoise, blue, green, and white.
Sea creatures fascinate me...
even if they really only live in my head....
I like to believe that they do exist.

I ponder all of these things while sculpting clay heads and tails.
While painting tiny fish.
I have enjoyed several sea theme art projects since returning home from our vacation.
The mixed media mermaid doll was a fun project for an art doll swap! She is being shipped to New York today. In return, I will receive a handmade art doll from my swap partner in New York!
This is what I refer to as my "play time" art. My hobby. Art with no instructions!
This big guitar case was my most recent commission. Although it came to me with instructions, I absolutely loved doing this piece!
"Bugs" is a pet dog who has passed on. My lovely client hired me to paint this case as a tribute to Bugs...
a gift for the doggie parents. Isn't that sweet?
I feel as if I am still on vacation with all of these sea projects...
I even added some ambient lighting to the tree, right outside of my studio window.
Fireflies in a sea colored jar? Oh yes!
It makes me smile!
Sending some tranquility your way!
I'll meet you back here again soon!
