Paint Party Friday - Works in Progress

I've been keeping very busy lately.... getting ready for my booth at our annual Art Slam, which will be held on Oct 15th. Plans for handmade gift items are spinning through my head and making their way into reality =)

Spackling on canvas is forming into an angel relief....

Yesterday, color was added...a bit more work is needed here, softening edges and bringing out the angelic expression....


















A Blue and Gold Macaw parrot on a sleeveless t-shirt waits impatiently to be finished.....





















A carousel horse on a wood keepsake box is sure to appear next, but for now...it stays spinning around in the back of my mind =)
