I hope everyone’s New Year is filled with hope, comfort, and time to get things done.
I was going through my past fair phots and this sweet face popped out at me. Not sure why I didn’t notice him sooner, with his striking coloring and regal nose. His shadows do the kind of thing I always look for, too.
10″x10″ oil on stretched canvas. Sold, thank you.
A lovely moment taken from a photograph by the generous Gary O’Dell. There’s a feeling of closeness and trust.
24″x24″x1-1/2″ oil on stretched canvas.
Big and dramatic. Available in my etsy shop. (The 10%-off sale runs through Monday).
The blue and yellow complementary colors create a lot of drama. He was a model at the fair last year, and this kind of back-lighting usually makes me walk on by because painting these extreme shadows is daunting. I loved his horns, though, so paused and snapped a photo.
I think he worked out okay. 😉
8″x10″ oil on stretched canvas. Available in my Etsy shop.
While I’m here, I should let you know my Etsy shop is having a 10%-off sale through the Labor Day weekend. Thanks for looking. 😀
I made two lap quilts using these fabrics. I was so happy with the first, I did it all again–differently.
Florals large and small. Romantic colors in warm, muted shades. A touch of blue and gray–but not too much.
I went to my stash of vintage embroidered linens, and pulled out a few to cut up and use as embellishment. You can see a sweep of linen doily there below.
(Don’t tell the other fabrics, but that bright red rose is one of my favorites–from the Lecien Flower/Sugar line. I’ve never been able to find that pattern again, either.
In the low light, it still looks so prettily shabby chic.
More doily edging below. I matched it with solid squares to add interest and texture.
The reverse side is made from four different fabrics. I didn’t have enough of the blue, so added neutrals which would not compete visually.
Here it is in bright sunlight. Lighting for these things is always a challenge–getting the colors to reproduce right, and not have too much shadow going on.
The size is 56-inches by 48-inches. It is all cotton, and a summer-weight throw. Pretty over the back of your couch, or a chair. It’s in my etsy shop now. 🙂
