Alice In Wonderland

I can't seem to keep sweet Alice and that darn white rabbit out of my thoughts again lately and now that it's running on Starz (premium movie channel) ever so constantly I'm watching it almost every time it comes on and then dreaming of it later.

No wonder I managed to start and finish so many Alice inspired works.

Alice on a little 4x6 canvas holding the White Rabbit, presumably from harm.

Couldn't help but to make a pin set of the image.

I just adore the "Elizabethan" ruffs so decided this little fella needed one.

Another slightly different ruff, or collar shall we say. I love the way this little painting came out. On a 6x6 canvas.

And a sweet little bookmark too.
So far I'm holding steady to my promise of once a day for a week, but I guess at day two I shouldn't brag quite so loudly. Far too many things could transpire in the coming days.
Oh but what wonders would I have to share with you then!

Have You All Missed Me?

It's been what, almost 5 months...wait, what!? FIVE months since the last time I posted!

tsk tsk, for shame...

Trust me, I'm shaking my head right along with you. Amazing isn't it.

I think that darned sketchbook project got me so rattled that I didn't dare come back until I had something to show for it.

Hehe, sadly enough I haven't even touched it yet. My Mom always said I worked better under pressure and with the deadline looming large and exceeding fast I can only hope and pray my dear Mother is right.

That being said, however, I have lots and lots of wonderful shiny things with which to share.

Yes indeed for I have been busy...busy ignoring my sketchbook...*chuckle*

I think maybe if I try to post all said shiny things at once my computer will breathe its last breath. You see, part of the problem I have been having is my poor computer is acting like the last dinosaur. It's not even that old, 6 years now, barely a baby. I've tried it all but my poor baby isn't responding as well as it used to...sigh.

What I shall try is diligently (I swear) posting some pics EVERY day for a week. Just to show you all some of what I've been up to.

Now off to the races!

A couple of new big eyed bird paintings in some really fun color combinations!

LOVE the purple and lime green together!

This one is my favorite.

Needed a new (old) avatar pic.

Sooo, did you all spot that really wonderful piece of wood in the background? No? I'll wait, go take another look.

Raise your hands if you've ever driven by a piece of wood lying on the side of the road and wondered if you could make a u-turn and get back to it before anyone else spotted it.

Seriously, I can't be the only one, can I?
