You may not know this about me, but I hate to buy greeting cards. In fact, I have a hard time buying anything that I feel I could make myself, e.g. bread, cookies, artwork, decorations…

This summer I resurrected my love of printmaking by
creating my own series of greeting cards. The idea is to get these on at some point in the near future. I am trying to amass enough of them to sell them in sets, and this does take some time to do. I can’t complain but, I have art coming out my ears right now and am having a hard time keeping up with the ideas, so therefore etsy will have to wait a little longer.

Teddy’s painting

Ali, acrylic on canvas, 18 x 24″, 2009.

I finally finished the painting for Teddy. It has been at least two years in the making. During the making of this painting, I realized that it had been a long time since I had worked in the portrait genre and was a little rusty. In the end, I am just glad it looks like a boxer. The face was painted and repainted many many times. It was a great experience, yet I am glad the painting is complete.
