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 Nature-themed Cabochon Pendants from the Panhandle Trail

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 […]

Feline and Flower Votives in Summery Colors

This time I worked out a few different designs and styles with smaller jars than last time, and all in summery colors. All are etched on the inside with the design adhered on the outside and also have embellishments painted on the outside too, but this time I tried out frosted clear labels instead of […]

For Someone Who Loves Columbines

Warm mornings and birds singing, when the columbines grow tall and bloom, that’s one of my favorite things about my spring garden. The pink columbines in the photo below were ones I transplanted from my mother’s garden to mine. If your mother was anything like mine, giving her something flowery was a perfect Mother’s Day […]

Signs of Peace & Love: Flowers & Butterflies

The peace sign is a peaceful blue, and the heart is a vibrant red, and from there we have two opinions. The flower is a sunflower, specifically a woodland sunflower, a motif you may see frequently on this site. The color is golden yellow, but the center is stippled on with copper metallic paint, just […]

One of the things that’s always drawn me out into nature is the free flower show each year from the first thaw to the last frost.
