Late summer beauty

I took this photo in the field beside my house. I really liked the orange of the little butterfly next to the yellow of the chamomile flower. This photo is available for purchase on my shop in Fine art America. Also wanted  to thank Annette for showcasing my artwork on her site  . well, I am off to do the more mundane things necessary in life like grocery shopping etc.. I would much rather be drawing or painting or taking pictures!

Blending In

Here is my newest gourd. I ended up staying with the leopard theme just because I thought the leopard would fit the best with the natural markings of the gourd. When I find one that has pretty markings, I try not to detract but add to the beauty of the gourd. This gourd is not cut in any way , just left whole, woodburned and sealed with varnish.
 Also, I have a new shop on, stop in and check it out! Here is the exact link-

Not the usual treehugger

Here is my latest watercolor of a leopard. The first picture is of the beginning stages , and then the finished project. I hope to have it framed and matted and ready for the villagefest in Slippery Rock this Saturday. Hopefully this wet weather will go away by then.
