This dress was created for a local art show about the history of the building, now turned into artist studios, but once a shirt factory. My grandmother worked in this building a long time ago, so it holds some special meaning to me. I chose recycled materials, and created this dress out of brown packing paper and newspaper. The dress was created on a very old dress form that my grandmother found at a garage sale. This is currently on exhibit at The Shirt Factory Gallery until September 27, 2014.
For whatever reason, I cannot find pictures of the dress that I took before bringing it to the gallery, of course. If I find them I will post them. This is the picture at the gallery, which doesn’t show a whole lot of detail.
Sorry for the dark picture guys. I didn’t do a scan of this one, just took a photograph. I have a better photograph to load from my Nikon camera, promise. This was done with black Micron pens on Bristol board. It’s hard to see here, but there are whites in the eye to show light. This was done for a customer who found me on the internet (somehow!). 5×7.
Earlier I posted the drawing for this painting, and now, here is the painting! This was done as a custom order and a trade with a friend. She wanted the colors of the sky, fence, and grass to be those of a painting from a Paint and Sip type of class project that she couldn’t attend. She added the corn and the cow. This is 11×14 in acrylics.
This is sort of a pre-draw for an 11×14 painting I have been asked to do in exchange for a friend sewing my boys’ a couple of Cars themed blankets. She is also going to make my drawing into a … Continue reading →
This was originally for a challenge, and then life got in the way and I forgot about it. Alas, I have finished it. See if you can see the initials “CP”. This was done on a goldenrod colored cardstock that … Continue reading →
Here is a fabric house pouch that I sewed for a swap that I hosted on Swap-bot.com. That’s right, yet another craft or form of art that I love (and can’t find much time to do). I don’t host swaps … Continue reading →
Did this one for a swap on Swap-bot.com. The theme was owls. I chose to keep the artwork mostly black and white with a few Zentangle patterns. I used Micron black ink pens and Faber-Castell watercolor Pitt pens.
Here is a Zentangle-inspired ATC that I did for a swap through http://www.Swap-bot.com. I don’t generally do ATCs, only every now and again. This is done on Bristol board with Micron ink pens in black.
So a lot of the work that I show on here is related to Zentangles, but what you don’t know about me is that I enjoy creating A LOT of types of artwork. Here is a monotype that I created … Continue reading →
