Last nights progress. My Lioness is coming together. This is where I stopped after I found the opossum in my studio.


I was working away and heard a rustling to my left. I look over to see this ball of fur crawling up a roll of paper! I thought it was a rat. I woke up Nick, my husband, to get it out of my studio (hours before he needs to for work). He comes in and laughs when he sees that it is only a baby possum! He trapped it in a garden bucket and we put it outside.
What I would like to know how you got in Mr.

And so it begins!

Background- The Courage to Say It All

So this is as far as I got last night working on my background. This is going to be a large mixed media piece done in the style of the eye study I did a few weeks back before spring break hit. Just thought I would upload a progress image.

*please ignore the messy studio in the background. It just comes with the territory of me being productive.

Spring Break

Well, spring break is over and it is back to my studio for me. It is so nice to be home. Let the creating begin!

New technique!

I had a wonderful night last night! I woke Nick last night after this experiment turned out so well, hours before he was suppose to be up. I am so thankful I have a supporting husband who just smiles and returns my excitement. This is a light background of layers of magazine paper with chartpak markers, and prismacolors on top. It is already sealed, which is why it has glare. The pictures just don't do it justice. So happy with how this piece turned out. I started my larger piece tonight using this same technique. I will have pictures up when it is done.


I have had a wonderful time lately working on studies and just experimenting. Here are a couple of my mixed media pieces. (watercolor, prisma, and chartpak markers)
