cute cat on crochet rug

Actually it is a mini rug. It is a commissioned rug my friend Karen did for a friend's faerie house. I was asked to take a pic of it and she loved it.

Reception at IN A FRAME for my embroidery butterfly series went well, although I was a wee bit naughty and snuck out of my own reception to visit Mary Ellen Croteau's talk next door at the arts council, and then Talitha's opening reception too. Was a GREAT art stroll night in town.
Thanks to all of you who made it to the reception. I was teamed up with two  great artists Liz Zaff and Travis Hotaling and it was a fun night.

 Been rather busy around these parts, traveling, putting up an interactive exhibit at the Springfield Museum of Art. Our jafagirl display will be up for 6 months so plenty of time to see it.

Face It Friday:graphite powder

Art Pal Sandi and I challenged each other to draw/paint a face each Friday to keep us on our creative toes ;) I decided to use my weeping angel photo as a reference and used graphite powder,  kneaded rubber eraser and  mitsu-bishi pencil. Not very polished, but the main goal is to just do a face rather than worry too much about the finished product.

For those who want to explore using graphite powder here is a video tutorial from the Virtual Instructor.
I wanted to play with the image further so took an iphone pic and played with a couple of apps until I got it where I wanted. 
Hope you enjoyed visiting 
cheers and have a great weekend
