Share my adventures and mis-adventures as I create original art in various media. I work in both 2D (oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor, and mixed media) as well as 3D (polymer clay, paper clay, ceramics, and felting). My favorite subject is animals. You will find comments on my experiences with several art products and methods.

Mary Crawford - the pencil stage
I've started another Jane Austen cat. This one is Mary Crawford from "Mansfield Park." At this stage, the pencil drawing is nearly complete. The challenge is that putting them in human clothes changes the shape of the body and, in this case, of the shoulders and upper arms. It's a bit disturbing, and I suppose it takes a lot of practice to get it right.
