it was my dear friend Mark’s birthday the other day, and I wanted to figure out something unique to get him…and then it hit me. He’s a writer, and one of the main locations in his book is a place called the Pelican Bar and Grill – et voila! A gift was born. the quill and scroll in the corner is a personal design from the author himself.

here’s a link to get Mark’s wonderful book! leave a review if ya like it!

this was an experimental piece for me…

always wanted to try out the Jaquard Lumiere acrylic paint, and finally the other day, a customer at the art supply store I work at inspired me to bite the bullet and get a few jars of the Halo colors. Boy howdy am I glad I did. The label claimed that it went on over black (or other dark) backgrounds, and all evening, I was fervently hoping this to be true. Not only is it true, but none of the shiny gets lost on the black.

I love it so much.

finally met my little cousin face to face via Skype last night – her momma told me she really really really liked Sven, and since she sent me some awesome little kid art, I decided to paint this guy as a present and to keep her excited about art. Seemed to work!
