The Little Songbird

Have you ever started out to create an art piece, but ended up doing something totally different than you planned? That is how this piece came about. I thought about doing a piece with the oil rigs, again, but when I sat down to start the piece late last night, for some reason it just didn't feel right. Looking back through my pictures, this little girl just stood out to me and I knew I wanted to create something with her. So, here are the results!

The background is from Playing with Brushes. All other images are free images. I truly hope you enjoy this piece of artwork!

The Dreamer

Once again, I've created an art piece without any rigs or fossils. Although, I did have a color scheme in mind of blues and greens. I'm also taking an advanced class in Photoshop to learn how to color my black and white photographs, so I'm on my way to learning something new. I hope you enjoy this piece of artwork, as much as I enjoyed making it.

The Music Butterfly

It's been a couple of weeks since my last blog. I seem to have been so busy with work and my niece graduating college. We are so proud of her!
This week I wanted to create a piece of artwork that didn't include fossils or rigs, since that has always been my signature. So, I'm once again stepping out of the box with this piece. I hope you like it!

By the Fossil Sea!

I can't express how much I have enjoyed the comments from my last piece of artwork! When I saw Marsha's comment, I kept saying, "She likes it! She likes it!" There is nothing like the elation you feel when the artist who has perfected a certain style, likes your attempt at their style.
This week I wanted to create a piece that spoke of summertime. When I think of summertime, I think of going on a vacation, perhaps visiting somewhere I haven't been before. But, the thought of vacation, for me, has always been the ocean. I don't know why, perhaps because I don't live by the ocean and some of the best vacations have been trips to Galvaston, although I haven't been in years. Also this week the song, "By the Sea, By the Sea", kept coming to my mind. So, I hope this piece of artwork makes you think of fun times by the sea!

The little girls came from FrenchKissed, fossils from Art-e-ology, Sea Pixie from Lisa Kettrel, background from Playing With Brushes, texture from Shadowhouse Creations, and the crowns, wings, words, boat and pixie dust from Nicole Young. I hope you enjoy and think of pleasant summertime memories!
