The greatest creations are those that as you create them, you get lost in your thoughts, by the time you're tired of thinking you're holding in your hands, something from deep within...

Welcome inside my head, my heart...

New stuff, Very Exciting News! and a Contest! :D

Hi Everyone!!

Well, I said I would finish something by the first of the month for the UFO/WIP challenge and I did it! Technically. ;) I've been a lil busy (and tired!) so I hadn't had a chance to take pictures until today but never the less I made it and I'm here with proof! hee hee Of course, it was something new and therefor not shown in the wip pictures on my previous entry but that's ok right? :)

Quick note for all those who are participating or would like to, we extended the challenge to cover completing wips/ufo's and any new piece, from start to finish. :) We've had a few new people jump in too! They are listed on the participants list over there on the right if you'd like to see what they are up to. If you'd like to join us, super! just let me know so I can add you to the list. It's fun, motivating and inspiring!

Speaking of inspiring,....I had a bit of an explosion. While finishing up the pieces (mentioned at the end of this entry) I could not stop myself from starting a few new WIPS during the process! It seems once working more frequently the creative energies really started flowing. About 5 new little hatchlings emerged (will be available soon!) and a couple more heads too!

Here are two of the new ones, they even got a some paint, woo hoo!!
Am I on a roll or what? ;)ha ha ha

The bluish woman's face with molting is pretty large, about 4 inches and will part of a larger piece. This is my lady of the orchard type piece a few friends and I are experimenting with ;)
She'll be entwined with branches and the creatures that live among them.

and a new lil one...

I'm really enjoying working on these :)

and now, last but certainly not least, some very exciting news!! :)

I will be teaching an online class later this month in collaboration with the amazing Sherry Goshon and Jean Bernard! :D woo hooo!

Many of you know already how I feel about online classes right? Love em! Teaching among these two fabulous, giving artists and putting a class together for others out there who share this love, and for self expression is a HUGE inspiration. :) (thank you!)

Jean is currently running a Contest on her blog for her New Beginning Celebration!
By heading over to her blog and sharing your experiences by answering the question that is there, you will have a chance to win prizes as well as free classes! :) (You can also see how she torments us by showing only part of what she's working on!)

If you'd like more information about my portion of the class please email me at . For more info on this class, updates, classes in general and/or free tutorials and tips please sign up for Jean's notice list on her website.

I'm excited! :) What fun!

Oh wait, was I supposed to tell you what it is?
a sneak peak wouldn't hurt would it? ;)

Samples ;)

As always, thank you so much for visiting.

Have a super, fantastic and wonderfully creative day! :)

BIG hugs,

I've been holding off but now I have to ask. What is a UFO? UnFinished something?

Your wips are beautiful and I am especially admiring the lips!
