Encaustic Shellac Burn

I'm laying in bed with a broken toe, but that doesn't mean I can't get things done, right? So I thought I'd update my blog.

Here's an encaustic painting I did to be featured at last night's Art Stroll. I finished the painting with a shellac burn, which is what you'll be seeing in the video.

Photo A Day July 2014

Since the last blog entry published successfully, let's try a movie! I decided to take a photo to document each day in July. This video is a slide show of each of those photos.

I'm Alive! And Bloggging!

















Here are a few of the snapshots, paintings, and works in progress from the past few months. There are lots more, but I'm not spending too much time typing up this blog entry in case it doesn't go through like the last few times I've tried. So if you're reading this....yay!! It went through!

MK Glam Voxbox




A few weeks ago I received my first Voxbox from Influenster.com. I signed up after hearing you could win free loot from them if you agree to talk about it via social media. I never really expected to be one of the ones chosen for a Voxbox, but I was!! Yay! Look at all of this awesome beauty booty! I have started trying things one by one. I tried the lipstick first, but it wasn't a flattering shade for my skin tone. So I gave it to a family member. Next up is the bronzer and mascara. I'm wearing both today and let me tell ya.....they're wonderful!! Especially the mascara!! I'll be ordering more soon!




I decided to take a selfie since the gallery traffic is slow today. The bronzer doesn't really show as well in this photo, but you can see the mascara.

I'll try the blush and powder next, I think. Oh, I almost forgot! I did try the brushes and they're great, too. If I were home I'd leave specific names of the items, but I'm not. If you have questions leave a comment and I'll answer.

Sneak Peeks

In the interest of updating the blog more often, I'll be posting shorter blog entries here and there. They will be mostly iPhone shots of my work. Maybe that will get me in the habit of updating regularly and will lead to more juicy updates. Here's hoping! 

I completed a painting while at the gallery today. I will photograph it as soon as we get a sunny day here in Florida. In the mean time, here are some sneak peeks.

Google 360 of Painting Outside The Lines Gallery


View Larger Map

Isn't that cool?! I just love that I can say my artwork is on Google 360 Street View! I was incredibly lucky that Bev scheduled them to come out after I hung my work. To see my work on the wall you'll need to walk into the second room. The lovely artwork in the first room is by Bev Neal, the owner of the gallery. So you'll want to go left into the next room. My work is on the half that's nearer to the door. You'll see my Sea Turtle, Butterfly, Fish, Birds, Doxie, etc... And some of my prints are hanging. It has changed a little bit since the Google guy came out, but that's the nature of the gallery world, right? One of those pieces of mine has been sold to a lady that lives in Israel. The small one to the left of the door titled, "Happy Little Flowers".

By the way, if I hadn't announced it before, I am now an Artist In Residence at Painting Outside The Lines Gallery. My schedule is subject to change, but as of now I'm there Thurs-Saturday 12-5. Tomorrow is the Second Friday Art Stroll, so we'll get there at 2 and stay until 9. Look for me in the Serendipity Exhibit. I have a small cart set up and an easel so I can paint between gallery patrons coming through. Come out and see me if you're in the area!
