Samsara Work in Progess

Samsara Work in Progess

This in inspired by the movie Samsara...
This is the first creative thing I've drawn in months, it's pretty crazy. Most things lately have been birds, flowers, birds and flowers. This does have birds in it, and probably will have flowers later, but at least they'll be arranged in a circle, so there will be the illusion of creativity. 

This piece is being drawn with colored pencil on a 9 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper, so it's hard to get in there with the details on the animals. This would be enjoyable to paint on a huge canvas. Maybe someday when I have space for huge canvases again.

Bouquet


Work in progress, just a bouquet of wildflowers. This is watercolor, and it's coming along slowly. I need to plan my own wedding bouquet. My mom knows floral design, so she'll get the task of arranging the flowers. I'm thinking dark purple and lavender? What a difficult decision...>_> I also like some bouquets with seashells and starfish mixed in, I'm not sure how that would work.

Here's some photos from the event, it was a good experience to say the least....>_> I used an old suitcase to display hand painted outlet and switch plate  covers, and a shoe rack to hang my bird mirrors. Handmade note cards were the best selling item, it was an easy way to sell prints that looked nice, yet were easy to make.

Art Original Painting on Wood with Mirror, Hand Painted Macaws

Art Original Painting on Wood with Mirror, Hand Painted Macaws

This hand painted tropical birds mirror is a beautiful wall accent for any room. The birds are on the frame and the mirror surface to make a unique and lovely art piece. I painted these birds on an IKEA Malma mirror (10x10") I used acrylic gloss enamel paint.

Peacock Bird Artwork with Grapes

Peacock Bird Artwork with Grapes

Drawn with colored pencil and watercolor. I was looking at Art Nouveau when I drew this, it helped solve the problem of what the background would be. 

I am going to be in the Art in the Garden show on March 29th, and I will be selling postcards and prints of this art, along with other pieces. I bought a booth this year, so hopefully it pays for itself...>_> I will also be selling my bird mirrors, and other hand painted objects. So, make sure to visit and view this peacock art in person.
