Koala Stuff


Hey Folks,
Just a quick update to show you I'm still working on stuff. The title is: "Tree Potato". It's an acrylic on canvas and measures 9x12". The scanner had real trouble with the colors so this is as close as I can get it. I don't have any prints available yet but let me know if you're interested and I'll get on it. Koala's Rule and they will take over the earth.
Seeya,
S.
PS. Kraftin Kimmie is doing another Blog Hop / Release this weekend so when you are done here go check it out.

Happy Halloween!


Hi Everybody. Just wanted to say BOO! and thank you all for coming out and visiting me in my art fair booth and on my websites.
Have a great weekend! By the way, for those that care, the painting is done with acrylic on canvas. This is the first black cat I've painted. I will probably make halloween cards and prints for 2011. If you want a print now, email me.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps September Release Blog Hop!!!


Hey Folks,
It's that time again! Kimmie is releasing some new stamps. And of course, yours truly is providing some designs. This month, since I can not design a card anywhere close as cool as the Krafty girls, I decided to do paint "Miles the Clown" up with acrylics. I added the gold frame to give it that old French Clown portrait look. Enjoy.
If you came here first, here's the info for the Blog Hop:
Today Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps is releasing their new FAB-U-LOUS September images! As you’ve seen over the last few days in our Krafty Peeks, Annie Rodrigue has created some sweet and sassy ladies this month!

I still sell prints of this one and if you're interested the price is $10 plus 5.25 for priority shipping. It comes matted and bagged. Email me if you would like one or wait until I put them on Etsy. :)

Another Banjo Pig


For those of you that are new here, I like to read Guy Francis' Blog "So Cat Tacos" and he and another Illustrator, Stacy Curtis started drawing banjo playing pigs. It got popular and other artist's started drawing their own versions, so they started a Blog just for this subject. The Dueling Banjo Pigs Blog. There's more than a hundred now. This is my second one. The wife suggested this one and when I had some free time I sketched it up in ink and watercolor in my sketchbook.

Banjo Pig


So I like to read Guy Francis' Blog "So Cat Tacos" and he and another Illustrator started drawing banjo playing pigs. It got popular and other artist's started drawing their own versions, so they started a Blog just for this subject. So I says to myself... I says: "I gotta get in on some of this." and I was bored so I drew my version in my sketchbook. To see the other great illustrations go to the Dueling Banjo Pigs Blog.

The original is for sale, I just haven't listed it. So stay tuned. In the meantime you can buy it in my Etsy shop as a print that is matted and ready to frame. Seeya!
