Moved from Oregon to Virginia

My Art should pick up again soon, now that I have finally moved from Oregon to Virginia.

This is my new Art Studio, complete with Doug Fir boughs around the windows.

I will really miss NW Oregon and the farm we had there but DH had to follow the work.
The new Farm is a work in progress and it is well on the way to becoming, "Home".

Cafe Press Christmas cards

I used Cafe Press again this year for my Christmas cards, needless to say, I am very impressed with the Quality again.

Found an old painting

Going through an old Box today, I found one of my very old paintings. I thought it was lost in one of the many moves my family has done.
I did this so long ago, I have no idea what age I was but I am guessing 10/12 years old, so that makes it around 1974 when this was painted.
It was done in acrylic on canvas board.

Nari WIP 8

This is one of the rare days I could work on my painting for hours at a time. Was quite enjoyable!
I have added a lot more ink and layers of color all over the painting.
Too much to write up in any detail but I am about 70% done.

I know in this age, Tech is all the rage.
However, I decided to turn the clock back a bit and design some Envelopes for those who like to send letters the more personal way.
These are my first designs, more to come soon.

Now Offering Drinking Glasses at Cafe Press

I am now offering Drinking Glasses at Cafe Press.
Am in the process of offering this item with all my designs but if you see one you would like and I do not have it up yet, let me know.

Nari WIP 7

Finally able to add an WIP update on my painting of Nari.

I have been busy adding layers of color on her fur, working on the right ear adding depth and shading. Just started adding another layer of ink to her fur on the left side, which is easy to see and a small about of ink to the right side.

I will be working on the Ink on her fur more and once that is done, will go back to adding color to the fur around her face.

Though her eyes are as pale as you see here in person, I might add some more brightness and color to them later on.

Father Christmas card

I have made it into an updated Holiday card and gift items.

This design is also offered at my CAFE PRESS store.

Nari WIP 6

Adding the 5th layer of color to Nari's outer fluff. Adding the first layer of color and some shadowing to her inner lions mane. The shear number of layers of fur framing her face is impressive. But then, that is a Maine Coon cat for you.
Also adding some Ink stripe details. Very slowly but surely getting this painting done.

Adding more layers and texture to the big Maine Coon cat ruff around her face. My favorite brush for this is a, Renaissance red Sable brush size 9.
Also applying some depth to her inner ear and doing a little more Ink work. Though the Ink work at this point, is hard to see in the Photo.
