I got Frenchies For Days

I don’t know where my brain was, but my stencil design required a lot of tweaking to get every furry little roll to stay attached.  So I have all these “rejects” to play with 😜, so you are going to be seeing these little guys… umm adorning at least 5 pieces in the future!! 

#art #frenchbulldog 


I set a goal for myself to create 10 pieces that are cohesive.  3 down 7 to go!! πŸ¦„β­οΈ I am excited to see what comes next!

Thanks for checking it out 😊

Chow Chow

Two chows chillin with each other, enjoying the flower pot garden.  Not quite done yet.. but REAL soon! 

The following pics are from the first steps of stencil making to the almost finished piece.  

A Theme Developing?

So, my newest piece features a pug. My last piece had a poodle. It would seem that this was planned but it wasn’t, but I like it. I designed and cut the pug stencil myself, which was fun, and I only had to cut it 7 times before it was perfect, I mean perfect to me anyway πŸ™‚ I am going to include a pic of the ready for print pug, the unedited image (the original piece will be hanging in my living room…safekeeping for an art show submission), and the stencil.

Thanks for checking it out!

Can You Help Me Out?

I am currently working on motifs that will be applied to a plethora of items.  Have YOU ever searched for that special something, in the colors you want but couldn’t find….or would really like to see something you are really into on a… I don’t know.. a shower curtain or a pillow??  I would appreciate all ideas, and ya know I love doing this so I will try my best!! 

And my usual disclaimer: As much as I like making some money from this passion of mine… this is not a trick to sell anything or a plea for sales πŸ™ƒ #igotajob #ijustwanttolivemydream

Elephant: Spirit Animal

Anybody who knows me will attest to the fact that I feel deeply connected to the spirit of the elephant. I do not simply see an animal, I see a story of a gentle giant, that belongs to a herd, a herd that is bonded by love and loyalty to one another. There are accounts of mothers who stay behind, separate themselves from the herd, choosing certain death to stay with a weak and dying calf. Elephants are intelligent, strong, and compassionate beings who should not be robbed of all the wonders promised by the universe.  We as humans should not be robbed of the majesty of these giants, who were placed here free of chains, to roam the earth as they see fit. We as humans should not shackle and desecrate this gift that has been given, they do not belong to us, they belong to the universe, as do we. 

Some folks warn that personal views should not be shared, by the chance you will alienate your audience. I disagree, we as humans are free to share our beliefs to all, those who are interested will engage…those who are not may politely decline.

I have started working on a whole motif designed for my love of elephants, I will post updates!

Thank You for reading, I appreciate YOU!
