Here is a card I made for my Niece's graduation from college.  She adores lady bugs!  It is rubber stamped, and the background is done using alcohol inks.  The little wooden lady bug was the perfect touch!

This watercolor of a mom and baby duckling was done for a friend, as a keepsake dedicated in honor of a dear friend of hers who was dying of cardiac problems.  It was a privilege to be commissioned to do this art.

This pastels is from my photograph of the desert area on Margarita Island.  It was a gorgeous, warm and balmy day.  A vacation I will never forget!

My pastels classes are most satisfying!  We decided to work on portraits, both animal and human.  I decided to do a portrait of my Grandmum using a photo taken at a family reunion a few years before she died at age 100.  My first portrait ever, and it is not just too bad!
For the animal portrait, I could not resist doing our beloved Chewee, a Bichon-Maltese darling little three-year old.  He is just too cute!
