Parrot T-Shirt is Finished; Carousel Horse Box is Begun

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments on my works in progress...and thank you for all of your good wishes for my upcoming art event! =) I haven't finished the angel relief yet, but here are pics of the completed parrot shirt....

I sketched and transferred my design for the Carousel Horse Box and have already started painting on it. I love the way it looks already, and will add highlights and a bit of color to give it that circus/carnival aura....

Hope you are happily creating beauty, too! Kathryn

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 stays spinning around in the back of my mind =)

Check out my pictures from Last Year's Art Slam
