New Season, New Artwork

HAPPY SUMMER!  It’s official and it’s HOT!  But with the long days it’s given me more time and energy to create new art and commissioned pieces.  How about you other artists out there?  Do you get more energized in the summer or do you relax into the lazy days by the beach?  Nothing wrong with a little of both!  But, being a full time artist, the bills don’t stop coming so I’m always looking for more work and so far, June has been awesome & very busy!

So, I thought I’d share some of the latest projects I’ve been working on…

First off is this historical pen & ink with watercolor painting of the ship Bon Homme Richard commissioned by the head of a computer tech company…

The other thing I’ve been working on a lot is creating new Gothic and Steampunk style jewelry…I make one of a kind necklaces and bracelets and have been selling them online and at many arts events and clubs.  The pieces range in price from $15-$30 and I’ll never make the exact same piece twice!  Feel free to contact me if you’re interested in these cool jewels!

Last but definitely not least, I have some very exciting news!  Some of you read about this on my facebook pages but I’ve been  “made into” a featured cartoon on 6/7/2014 in RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT!!  So my crazy long nails and my art are paying off!  And thanks to this 15 minutes of fame, the art sales have increased!  So now that I’ve been on TV, radio and Ripley’s I have another publicity goal in mind that I’m working on but I don’t want to say anything…or jinx it…in case it doesn’t pan out but if it does, you’ll be the first to know!  Here’s me in cartoon form:
