Saturday's Art

Working on new faces.....
As an artist selling my work here , I am constantly striving
to make my art more interesting. I have been working
this week on my girl's faces, researching the lowbrow
art. This is my first attempt and I am quite happy
with her .
I'll be working on another "Alice" next.
Be good to yourself!

Do You Like My Hat?

"Do You Like My Party Hat?"
Series 1,2,3
My children's favorite book is "Go Dog Go". If you have ever read the book (which I have millions of times), the two dog's conversation goes like this :
"Do you like my hat?"
"No, I do not"
They meet several times throughout the book and repeat this same routine.
Later they meet again....
"Do you like my party hat?"
"I do, I do like your party hat?"

Snow, Snow and More Snow

She has Wings
(inspired by a Willow Tree angel)
We have been hit with a HUGE snowstorm this weekend! I've been stuck in a hotel since Friday....Administrator on Call at the hospital so it was my responsibility to make sure that all of my staff got to work safely and the hospital ran smoothly all weekend during the storm. Our staff pulled through like STORM TROOPERS!!! I couldn't ask for a better team....they've been here throughout the whole weekend, willing to take time away from their families in order to keep the hospital running seemlessly in this near disastrous time! As 3 feet of snow piled up outside, my staff took care of approximately 50 psychiatric patients and did it with a smile on their face! They are the best!!
I'm taking 4 days off this week...and boy do I need it after this!
We'll be digging out for days..We still can't get into our driveway. If I had my camera cord with me, I'd post pictures!! Be good to yourself!

Blue Angels

Three Angel Faces

"Blue Angels"
I painted all weekend....This 18x24 painting was one of the last paintings that I completed yesterday. It was one of the hardest ...I worked for a long time on the background....
I crackled the background..first a layer of black, then a layer of crackle medium. Then another layer of blue paint. I decided the blue was too bright so I painted several layers of paint over the crackle to tone the blue down. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.
What do you think?
