A whole bunch of art stuff going on lately.
I have been playing with texture. I used brush strokes in heavy acrylic gel medium to create a texture and Then used layers of color on top. I love the way it came out. I am going to be experimenting a whole lot more with texture. It has a lot going on, maybe a little busy, but it was a successful outcome to my experiment.
What do you think?
I am also illustrating a book. This is m first book gig. It is taking ma a while. I have never really done a cohesive series of pieces for a single project, other than some graphics work I have done in the past. I will eventually share more about it, but for now, shhhhhh…..
Also, this past week I have been working on some fun art for the Femme Thou Art Collective’s monthly auction on Facebook. I did something a little different.
This is my piece for the auction.
Acrylic on Canvas
It is a “Cosmic Aquatica” themed auction. It will be going on until tomorrow.

Hello all! I am finally back.
I cannot even tell you what took so long. Life, I guess. I am in still in Colorado and loving it.
Okay, I think that I mentioned a project that I was involved with called, 78 Tarot. 80 artists from all over the world were invited to this project. Each one crating a single card. This project, so far, has been one of the highlights of m life. I enjoyed it so much and it was such an honor to be working with artists that I have admired for so long. Here is the artwork for the card from that deck:
“7 of Pentacles”
Since then, I was invited back for the next project: 78 Tarot Nautical: Tarot of the Water.
Here is the art from that one:
“10 of Swords”
I feel that these experiences have helped me grow as an artist.

Unfortunately, the first deck is sold out and is no longer available.
The 78 Tarot Nautical Deck is available for pre-order here: 78 Tarot Nautical: Tarot of the Water
I am also illustrating a book, which is what I have wanted to do since I was little. I am really excited about it, but can’t really share much of a glimpse, yet.

I am finally in a new home in this new city and my computer is set up, which makes writing and sharing here a lot easier. Here is what I have been doing lately:
Also, I have some things in a big auction with the Femme Thou Art Collective over on facebook just in time for the Holidays! Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.316598151872482.1073741900.105484202983879&type=1
It is raining, so I am playing on the computer. I did some paintings earlier this year that I never shared, so I am sharing now.
I am pleased to be participating in the Femme Thou Art Collective’s auction this month. Here is my piece. The theme is “Queens and Crowns”.https://www.facebook.com/FemmeThouArtCollective/photos/a.268269706705327.1073741895.105484202983879/268296693369295/?type=3&theater
So, it looks like I haven’t been here since April! Wow! A few things have happened since then. The 78Tarot Project is in full effect. There is a Kickstarter and everything. We reached our goal and even a couple of stretch goals! There is another stretch goal coming up. Check out the Kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1309407051/the-78-tarot-project-a-global-art-collaboration?ref=card
My personal life has changed dramatically in a short period of time. The result? I am moving to Colorado Springs! It is so beautiful there.
Now some pics. Here is the art on my card, The 7 of Pentacles, for The 78 Tarot.
