Retro Toast

I can see now that I didn't get a great shot of this piece, but decided to post it now and then re-shoot it tomorrow. This is part of my kitchen series, such as it is. I'm still working on the French Press, and blender so stay tuned.

Painted Pears

Originally this was going to be another carbon transfer of the pear drawing but once I put the image down it seemed like it was missing something. I stepped out of my usual style and filled in the pears with pigment (encaustic paint) and am now super happy with the outcome.

This is from a drawing I began last fall but because it was in a sketch book I don't use much, I forgot about it. The initial drawing was very loose but by the time I competed it, it was quite detailed. I think it may be the graphite, or perhaps just a character trait I can't overcome - I strive for loose.

Pink Martini Towee

Finally, a success, after three attempts, and three failures - this bird just did not want to stick! Now she's off the Antwerp, Belgium to live with someone who came to Open Studios last month - wish me luck with shipping!
