Fused Glass Horse

I did this fused glass sketch quite awhile ago, I happened to get a view of it with the setting sun behind it and looked at the bubbles on the one horse. Thought it worth taking a picture of.

Art Glass Guilds Patio Sale and Show

Update!! 15 Seconds of fame!! 

Patio Sale was great fun! Always lots of beautiful glass there. I took more pictures of the dogs that attend the show and will post and do some drawings from them.

The librarian at the Ramona library  recognized the piece of Dichroic jewelry I was wearing as one very similar to one a Julian librarian has.  I told her it very possibly was as I do bring my artwork up there for shows!  Cool to have your work recognized!

Patio Sale time already! Lots to get ready!

Fused Glass Cufflinks

One of the glass Artists at the Art Glass Guild, suggested some items for men. Since I Had done tie tacks for fathers day and because a fellow from Australia in Studio 25 said the style "down under" was to wear your dress shirt with no tie with cuff links! I made some up with some eyes that would have turned into earrings!

Sketches, 5 more pups and drawing TV faces!

5 more pups from memory.  I think because I've drawn soooo many horses it has helped with the dogs in motion.
Drawing faces from TV, I get someones eyes, next persons nose etc.  Lots of different shaped eyes, jawline and hairlines!  Portraiture is a weakness in art for me. Other than wire faces that look much like these I've made few attempts.  I downloaded a free portraiture link from Artist Daily, humm......Maybe that should be my next 100??
