This is another element from the 7 Naughty Witches trunk designed by Bobbie Takashima. There are frogs of all shapes and sizes found in this design and this is one of my favorites. These little guys were just too much fun to paint!
I am off to a SCUBA trade show for the next few days and will return in November just in time to post some Christmas stuff. Until then, HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND TRICK OR TREAT!!

Continuing with images from Saturday's class, Judy and Nancy collaborated on a design layout featuring dragonflies. Once the wax was ironed off Judy's painting, she experimented with metallic paint and markers to embellish her painting. Since she brought a frame to class, we were able to get the finished painting matted & framed. Judy's finished painting resembled antique Japanese kimono fabric - delicate but graphic at the same time - simply stunning!!

To me, one constant as a reminder of home has always been a magnolia. Being Southern born, the majesty of an old magnolia tree speaks to the heart. I created this design a number of years ago for a small trunk (the full design wraps all four sides as well as the top) but had the opportunity recently to rework the design a bit to fit a canvas for a private class I taught.
How does travel affect your creative process?
