I've been under the weather as of late. I had my wisdom teeth removed last week and was doing well on the mend. Now, NOT so much. So art has been put on hold as I recover and get myself back to working order. I think perhaps I've over extended myself with too much physical activity, however there's not much I could do with a 2 year old running amok in the house. Thankfully my dear husband has been doing the every day duties such as baths (can't hang my head over the tub to play with the kiddo..) and those typically mundane tasks.
So hopefully I'll be back up to production on things in a few days. I've got a giant batch of fairies in the works. They're sitting half dressed, or sans beautiful coiffure, or fully dressed with hair perfectly in place minus all the extra trimmings. I'm itching to get back to them, but sitting with my head hung over them isn't any good either. So for now, I lean back on the couch with my heating pad tucked under my chin.
This time around there will be more pin fairies launched. I've been lacking pins for a long while now, but I have at least 10, that just need fairy fine trimmings. I have been able to sketch out ideas for other artwork as I lounge about. Little snips and shreds of sketches always fly in my wake. The sketching has become obsessive once again. I'm not sure why, but whenever there is a pen in hand, it's usually sketching like mad.
I'll also be launching some new photographic art on my etsy site. I've got magical altered photos with a painterly quality to them that I'll be slowly making available in my shop. Currently I've got some cute little fairy prints offered as well as one handsome toad. The coming photos are a mix of beautiful florals, landscapes, and what I like to call dream imagery. You know those types of images that just lure your brain into creating this fantastical world of a story behind them.
Crows are making another round through my art as well as squirrels. Needless to say, if I only had the million and one hours of free time needed to create all the things I'd want to, there would be no stopping me.
Good Night All! Have a pleasant tomorrow!

Cupcake lovers unite! Features a cute yellow icing cupcake with the saying: Cupcake Will You Be Mine? This adorable piece would be a wonderful proposal to that special someone, or perhaps the perfect wall art for your little cupcake's room!
This piece is watercolor and marker on #110 Bristol. It measures 6x6 inches square with the art sized at 4.5 inches x 4.5 inches square.
I've been inspired recently to make "love" art. It first started with the "My Love For You Is As Big As A Whale" piece.
I've got some owl pieces coming up, and an adorable winter couple in an eskimo kiss.
Don't forget! There's only one more day left to get your entries in for the Custom Fairy Set Giveaway!
