Still layering...

The shape of my pets...

My friend Sheila paints animals to raise funds for the shelter. Check out her site: http://www.sheilatajima.blogspot.com/





Still painting layers and layers of acrylic on this Celadon colored painting. I'm alternating between gel mediums and paints and some silk organza in between.






Meanwhile, I did a quick scarf to get back into practice using gutta.

I like the way your critters are "layering" themselves on their pillows. Must have been inspired by their mom.

I love the depth you are getting on the celadon painting. The layers are very effective. Your scarf is beautiful!

I work best when I can go back and forth between projects and media. It keeps the approach fresh, and I think, keeps me from overworking a piece. (That's what I tell myself, anyway!)

Very nice work. I especially like the black velvet one. Glittering with movement. I'll be checking back to see how your celadon piece goes. Looks great so far.

Thank you all for the nice comments. Yeah, my cat and dog are soooo lazy. You'd think they could give me a paw and help paint! Oops, forgot they don't have opposable thunbs.

Christine, I just went over to see your work. Your pieces are so quiet, calm, and spiritual. They're very beautiful.
