Photos do not do this beautiful Apron justice. It has pockets, is lined, the stitching is wonderful...... and it is soo soft.
These Aprons are handmade, "Fancies by Jeanette". So if you are interested in a classy apron, let me know and I will put you in touch with her.

Close up of the Beautiful Fabric. She does custom orders and will try to find Fabric you are looking for or interested in.

Needless to say, I am really please and happy with my Apron. ;O)

Icelandic Horse Pen and Charcoal

I was originally working on a Phantom Navy jet but sadly... Mia lost one of the mice she brought into the house and before I could find it.. would you believe it found a way onto my Artist desk and peed all over it. Sigh ~~ So I just tossed it.
Have been meaning to start another one but after that... has taken me awhile to take a chance on another.
Am pretty sure there are no more mice running around the house.

So this one will be a Ink and Charcoal Icelandic Tolting horse based on a photograph Maike has very kindly allowed me to use. Thank you Maike!!
Above you can see the very rough pencil in and just a bit of ink on the mane.

Have just started on this Icelandic's face. Am planning on going slow on this piece as I feel a bit rusty.
Not sure if I will get this one done in time for Christmas but I will try.

The Viking ~ Abstract

This creation, looked like a Viking standing there waiting for a battle to start. Is one of the few pieces I was at a loss to what to call it, hence its title.

Can see a close up of the detail in this Digital Abstract painting.

Cafe Press Christmas card review

This year I decided to use Cafe Press for my Christmas cards. Am very impressed with the print quality, how nice and thick the card stock is and they come in this handy plastic container.

Yes, Family and friends, this year you will be receiving.. Holiday Herald! ;O)

Tholian Web Abstract

The first Abstract I have been able to do for awhile. During the summer it my computer gets to hot to spend the many hours doing a Rendering, so I have to take a break.
Now that it is winter and much cooler out, let the creating resume!
I am calling this one, The Tholian Web..... because it kind of reminds me of a certain episode on a Show.

A Zazzle Sweat shirt ~ Long term testing

Since I have been doing some long term testing with Cafe Press, Sweat shirts, I figured maybe I should do some long term testing of a couple of Zazzle, Sweat shirts.
These are the two designs I picked and you can see how nice the shirt and print quality is.

I will post back around the 6 month time frame for the first review.

The World of Icelandic Horse's Abstract

World of Icelandic's shirt

My latest Creation, an 3D Abstract Icelandic Horse of the World. Took awhile to get the Icelandic just right.
I kept the back ground simple because I wanted the Horse to take center stage.

Something a little different and unique.

Cafe Press Sweat Long term shirt review

In 2007 I bought 3 Cafe Press heavy duty Hanes sweat shirts, as a product testing and trial run.

First two years I washed them as recommend on the tags, and wearing one every day for Farm chores such as taking care of horse's, gardening or fixing fence, the sweat shirt's printing, fabric and elastic cuffs still look like new.

From the end of 2009 to now.. I decided to abuse them in the Wash too, using super hot water in a heavy duty wash cycle.
The main body of the fabric is holding up well, as it the print job...which kind of surprised me but in a good way. However, the Elastic around the neck and cuff's are starting to get stretched.

Is again surprising how well these Cafe Press sweat shirts have held up to daily abuse and very please with the quality, and those that know me, know I don't say that lightly.

These Sweat shirts are excellent quality, nice and thick, which I love.

I have just ordered another couple of sweat shirts to make sure the quality is still high.

First Set of Decoupage Glass earrings and Necklace are done

This is the only set that came out the way I wanted it too. Used the head shot of my painting the Urban Jungle.

Now here is for the bad part, I have since found out I have a bad allergy to nickel. That means the findings I was going to use, isn't possible as they have nickel in them.

Have found a source of nice Nickel free Earring hooks, Thanks to Yvonne. ;O)

Now I have to find some Nickel free Earring and Necklace Bails.
Then decide if I am going to offer the Necklaces on Silk cord or?

If anyone has any good ideas, please let me know.
