Painting and Pokémon 

I am trying to get back into creative mode, my biggest problem is finishing what I start.  Well I actually finished one!  I painted this simple canvas board for me step-son’s bedroom.  He is really into Pokémon.  It turned out better than expected considering that I have not really painted anything in so long.


Here are some work in progress shots too…

Finding inspiration 

in all the wrong places?  It was recently inspired by this artwork that I saw hanging in the bathroom at a bar. Lol.  I think I can tweak it, making it my own and use it as wall art in my bedroom.



I am however trying to create it using things that I already have, like paint, paper and cardstock.  So far this is all I have to show for my efforts. 



Where is the strangest place that you have seen something the you like, wanted to recreate or just admired?

I also like this one as well but as an artist I have a hard time buying art for my walls,  I SHOULD be able to create my own.



My new apprentice 



Meet Jynx, not so helpful helper.  Every time I head down into my craft area he is right behind me.  He will start out on the extra stool down there and slowly inch his way onto my lap or the table, where he steals my stuff or sticks his paws in everything.  Not to even mention the long hairs!

It’s a good thing that he is cute but he sure puts the ‘bad kitty’ into bad kitty creative. Lol

If I run him off enough he will find a place nearby to lay and pout for awhile before trying again.  I have tried to include him on some projects but he has little to no interst in following directions.  Such a little art Diva.





Christmas art

The boys and I worked up a few homemade Christmas presents this year, sorry for posting this so late, I know Christmas is over.  But I recently went over to my mother-in-laws house and say the art work proudly framed and hung in her bedroom so we must have done something right.



I so should have taken photos of the process.  The boys loved getting messy more than anything.
