The theme for my pieces will be an oceanic-explorations one. Not a huge surprise there. I'll be including a few artworks from last year, but most will be new ones.
This one of a trilobite fossil was finished last Wednesday and is all set to go:
"Specimen No. 283" acrylic on cradled hardboard, 6x6"
A trilobite with dainty little flowers and a heart-patterned background to boot? I think my head just exploded a little. I really really want to make valentines using this piece. How utterly nerdy would that be?
And speaking of nerdy, have all you US peeps seen the Edgar Allen Poe stamps now available at the post office?How cool are these?! I'm tempted to write little Poe quotes next to them on all my outgoing bill envelopes.
Currently I'm in the midst of two more paintings, one of which was started last year and promptly thrust aside due to time constraints. I'm really excited with how it's turning out though and will have some sneak peeks to show you all in the next day or two.
Back to work I go! I'll leave you with a picture I shot a couple weeks ago of the Woodland Portrait minis all happily lined up on display in a wooden drawer:
