I thought I would get away from Digis and colouring for a day and share some of my art works that I have entered in various contest on the internet and specifically have won public favorite awards.
There are pen and ink drawing colouredwith Prismacolour and enhanced in Photoshop.
For many years Clowns were the center of my work and the most popular of my pieces at art shows---this is funny because when it was obvious that I wouldpursue a career in the arts my Mother said, "Whatever you do don't paint clowns or bowls of fruit!"
The still lifes were never a big deal but clowns paid the rent many times and I have sold them to some famous clown collectors like Red Skelton and Frank Sinatra.
This particular little clown with his cat has won about 5 times in various contests-I think the colours are what sell it.
This DRAGON is very typical of the fantasy art I have done and still do-mermaids, wizards and dragons also have been some of my most common subjects.
The fantasy digis I now sell have been steady sellers akthough people seem to like the more traditionl images and not the cutsey dragons so much...
A Pierrot with a rose was my trademark for most of my career-it's only recently that I have let that go---pierrots are very specific french clowns and shouldn't be confused with Mimes.
Finally there is this very intense Medusa:
I had won the popular choice award three or four times in a row on a particular site and this piece broke that camels back and I was banned for a year from entering the contests so someone else would have a chance---that seems only fair and frankly since these were blind contests with no names connected to the art it was only good for the ego boost and the free art supplies.
All that is appropro of nothing and is mostly tredding water since I didnt have a project ready for out here tonight>
From the EDT here is NATTI done by Aletha Jane-Aletha handle most of the social media stuff and satallite groups on various NING sites like Paper Craft Planet---I think she does MARVELOUS COLOURING...
Donna won again yesterday and took home the digis-we'll see who wins today
Have fun and enjoy the hop-Smeared and Smudged is hoppingtoday so lots to look at!
