My mind has been roaming in the land of enchantment lately as you can see in my two latest pendants. My favorite type of art has always been illustration (think Howard Pyle and NC Wyeth). Our weekend hobby is buying children's books at yard sales and we have amassed a collection of nearly 1000 books for our daughter. Perhaps I've been reading her too many books and the illustrations are making their way into my own art. I have been having so much fun with these pendants lately. I know my regular customers are probably growing inpatient with me, I am sorry! :) It's a great way to create art when you have a toddler under your feet and not a lot of time (or a very short attention span). I've also been able to get back into beading a little which is very relaxing for me. So, I hope you enjoy my little pieces of art as much as I do. I will keep painting them if they keep selling. Hopefully I will get myself to some local gift shops and galleries to see if they have any interest in carrying a few.
The peices in this blog were painted on vintage black wooden dominos from the 1950's.
