My love of clay and paint and colored pencil and ink, can be really confusing to some...even me! But it can also be a blessing to me! I never get bored with what I do, because there is always another project or media that is waiting for me to play with! But sometimes I'm just not feeling the clay work, or sometimes I just don't have the time to really get much of a painting done, so I will work on something small to just relax in front of the television. I enjoy the variety!
I have been working on several different projects lately. Some of them are commissions that I cannot post photos of, just yet, so I will share some of what I have been working on, on the side. I like to experiment with new ideas for my online sales and for future art festivals. Right now I have one festival scheduled for the fall. My little clay houses are the biggest seller in my booth at the art festivals. But I also like to include other items for customers who may not be interested in little houses. So I've been creating clay tiles and acrylic paintings. But I need more variety of clay pieces. So I am working on some functional pieces to try out at the Norcross festival. I have decided to make some small bowls and small cups with whimsical designs painted on them. Here is one of my first experiments. I like how it turned out, so I will definitely be making more. Hmmm...I think I need a larger kiln!
