Card/Book for Paige's B-friends birthday.

This card was so much fun to make! The expression on Jon's face was worth all
the effort and time. The colors are more subtle than the photo's show. Will have 
to do some more of this kind of card.

Let him eat cake!

                                              Here is a cake that I painted for Paige's b-friend's 21st birthday.
                                               The top photo is the more accurate photo.

                                              The wolf is from the movie 'Hoodwinked", so is the
                                              comment at the top of the cake. If you haven't seen that 
                                              movie you should, it is so funny!

Inspired by butter molds

                                Here are three images I carved based on some old butter molds.
                                              I feel drawn to circles for some reason and
                                                  these three images were so interesting.
                                             The actual carving is a true circle, the scanner
                                                        seems to skew the image a little
                                                        and makes them look like ovals.

Water color and verse

                      Was working with a fellow artist and friend today. This turned out nicer
                                       than I anticipated, considering I was supposed to
                                                                         'do' art!
                                  A carving just recently completed. This one was fun to do. 
                                           Quite a challenge to keep each side symetrical.

                                   Couldn't leave Seth out, so I made him a marble/pencil bag.
                                   I love the way the plaid design of the wool added to the cat!

                               This is another wool, embroidered purse, this one for Paige.
                                    The colors of the wool are so vibrant and beautiful!
                 Here is a wool purse that I embroidered for my daughter Nina. She loves lambs.
