I have been continuing my pastel classes but unfortunately the teacher fell ill and we don't know when or if he is returning.   This is very upsetting to me because I was very excited about the work I had been doing.   I am praying he comes back.  Here are some pieces that I did:
The Sea

Snowy Night

Girl with Red Hair

Blonde Beauty

Baby In Red

Here is my attempt at a portrait, it is the niece of a friend of mine
She was pretty hard to do as I think all children are but I took my best shot.

Again I have been lax in keeping up with my blog.  Not a lot has happened since I last wrote.  I entered a few photos of my work for submission and hope I get in at least one magazine.
I am planning to be in Just Steampunk and am working on a Steampunk hat for it as well.
They came out with Just Mixed Media so there is a lot I can do with that.

I started art school again.  This time I am working with pastels.  I never knew how hard it was
to work with them but I am hanging in there.

Here are the first two that I did and thought they
came out pretty good so I framed them.  The one on the top is a summer scene and on the
bottom is a winter scene.  I am really enjoying it.  Portraits are the hardest to do but I am
working on it.

Finnabair Contest

My piece of art here for the contest is a take on Linda's cigar box, of course mine is different in a lot of ways and I added lights.  She is an inspiration to me and I wanted to see if I could follow in her steps just a little.  My favorite quote is "NEVER GIVE UP"!! BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE!!!

Here is the November 2015 Issue of Just Steampunk that I was published in

Now I am finally starting to put things on my blog so I can catch up.  This is a
Glass house I made at Art-Is-You with the direction of Kecia Devaney and Jane Blanco
I had so much fun making it event though it was very hard, I am going to try making
another one.  This was all glass and solder with pictures behind the glass and embellishments
added on to it.  It was my first time even soldering so I think it came out pretty decent for
a first timer.  Can't wait to start on the second one!
