Holiday Ornaments!

Finally got this year’s ornaments done! Three are designs I’ve made and even offered in the past year, but through that first iteration I refined the techniques and designs and they are much the better for that. I had initially begun with 4″ discs made of polymer clay and I really love that size, but […]

“Find Your Roots” Cabochon Pendants

I love bare trees. I have always been fascinated by the exposed roots of trees, especially older trees who have stood many tests of storms and floods. Now, in November, with leaves mostly fallen, the woods are full of the tangled interest of bare trees and tree roots. I purchased a few bags of mixed […]

Decorative Wooden Trays With Autumn Wildflowers

Just a few decorative trays with autumn wildflower photos from the Panhandle Trail help to celebrate autumn. The larger tray is 10 x 14 and the smaller tray is 8 x 12, and made of lightweight unfinished wood. I paint the outside and inside, then adhere a print of the image on my high quality […]

Autumn Wildflower Votives Decorated for the Season

Arranging my display of votives here I kept looking at four with autumn wildflowers that I felt needed a little extra something. I pictured some burlap ribbon in autumn colors, some flower and leaf-shapd buttons and novelties and then some raffia too, and went to town with decorations. I decorated the top edge of them […]

Autumn Colors, Autumn Themes in Cabochon Pendants

Last year’s flower show of pendants from the Panhandle Trail were a hit, so I made more for this year. But I could also picture other elements of nature, like the red-tailed hawks that constantly soar above against the blue sky, and the moon from my painting “Sycamore Moon”. I purchased a few bags of […]

Ink and Watercolor Sketches Tiles

Back in 2012 when I was just a few months into my daily cat sketches I began experimenting with styles and media that I’d always wanted to use. One of these styles was the ink with watercolor wash style I’d seen so often on ceramic items like plates and vases, so as soon as I […]

New Flower and Butterfly Votives

Last year when I prepared for my Panhandle Trail exhibit I really wanted to try out my idea for votives made from recycled pickle and condiment jars. The first idea was to handpaint them with designs using alcohol inks, but I knew I wanted a print of my image on there. I did not attempt […]
