AU – Tiny Portraits’ Update



Only one more week to have the “Tiny Portraits” Workshop at Art Unraveled. Almost forgot to buy the canvases for the students. I have a Supply Fee so I provide some goodies plus their canvas.

It’s been hectic the last few weeks. I have neglected the blog and a few important things in my life. My hubbie and my boys are not in that list :)

A fun sketch that will be supplied as an option piece to use as inspiration (!) Hope you and the students enjoy it.

Piggies are back from the shop and at the publisher already. A couple of them below. The cover is on the works as I type.

Tiny Portraits Coming



Can’t wait until August 4th when I’ll be giving the workshop at Art Unraveled this year.

I’m working with the people attending getting their drawings and comps ready for that day.

We’ll work on a small piece and I want for everybody to get to work immediately. We’ll transfer the drawings, paint with acrylics and add 3-d elements.

Piggie’s Little World – III



My piggies’ book is almost finished. Only have to paint the cover. Here’s the first round for the cover.

Piggies for all interior pages are being scanned as I write. Should get them back on Thursday. Boy, I miss them. A pretty bad scan of page 6 below. Aren’t they happy?

Piggie’s Little World – II



Forgot to mention that Mami Pig was changed. She gained a few pounds and lost the stars on her head. She’s still cute, though.

Piggie’s Little World



I’m seeing piggies everywhere. Literally. I’ve been busy trying to finish my first all educational book – ‘I Can Cook’. And piggies can cook. Good for them. I can’t and that’s why I have a nanny. I adore her.

:)

Charaters below. I’ll post a couple of the final illos in a few days when they are scanned.

Mary Had a Little Lamb



“It made the children laugh and play;
to see a lamb at school”.

Nancy Reyner – Lorena



Lorena


This past weekend I took a three day workshop with acrylic artist, Nancy Reyner. If you have thought about trying acrylics, she is the person to talk to. She is an awesome teacher. Really. And I’m a tough critic. Check her schedule of workshops. They are all worth a trip from anywhere. Otherwise, get her book.

Lorena is a test of acrylic mediums. Isn’t she great?

Le Swap – J is for Juegos



J Alphabet - Sketch


Deadline for the ABC Chunky Book Swap with an awesome group of mixed media artist is coming fast. A rough with some ideas of how to make my page really chunky and playful. Playful is the keyword since I picked J for Juegos aka Games.

My Deadline – April 17th.
Real Deadline – April 18th.
