Final bid 1010 credits. This card is going to California.
I went with the kids, first thing, to a brunch at my grandmothers church. They were holding it to honor the mothers. My mom and grandmother were there. They gave away a few potted rose plants and I won the first one. It's pretty and I like potted plants. After a short break Ash and I headed to Paper Mermaids for our Atc make and trade group. It was just the first time we have gotten together for this group and it was fun. I hope to get more people together. I think I made four or five atc's while I was there. I traded some and put some away. Scrapbooking style is a fun way to see things.

This is the active version of Gouache card #7.
I was inspired by a crinkly cat hair to start the wavy area of the card. The rest developed free association from there. It went pretty fast in the creation stage. That is nice. I'm hoping I'll get some color recommendations... and not pink (not that there is anything wrong with pink.)
Final bid 2020 credits. This card is staying in Oregon.
I imagine it to be hailing a cab :)
I did the colors based on suggestions on Listia. I will try to get another picture that shows the silver areas.
Final bid 2520 credits. This card will be going to New York.
This card is titled "The Initiation."
The two heads facing outwards on stage were eyes at first... then a long nose in the middle and I honestly don't remember when it turned into this lol but I like it.
I decided to name the puzzle set of four Artist Trading Cards "Variance." I cut them up and put them in protective sleeves and top loaders. I took a picture to share with you.
I was working on the For ArtSake Gallery's website today. I have a start done on that, but the main accomplishment today was getting the facebook page worked out. I had found another page and the already had one. I was able to mearge them easily, which was nice. Here is a link to our facebook page. If your online please stop by and like us.
I hope to have these cards for sale in the gallery shortly. If your interested in them let me know. Thanks!
I made this creature yesterday and today. He isn't done on paper I can paint on or I'd paint him. I haven't decided if I want to color him or just go ahead and post him as a creature support card. I'll sit on it a bit and see.
This drawing is 6 x 6 on smooth bristol paper and is currently done in ink. This card is currently for sale to support the Creature Card Creation Project.

Bringing in the sheaves, Bringing in the sheaves, We shall come rejoicing bring in the sheaves.
i wanted to share a finished commission with you. It was actually a trade I did with another artist I met at my february show. She makes fabulous steam punk jewelry. Here is a link to see her work. In trade for a wonderful robot necklace she asked that I make a drawing of Zim and Dib in Steampunk. I had a lot of fun with this one. It's nice to have it done!
Final bid 1985 credits. This card is going to California. The repuglican maneating praying chamelian is a man eater similar to a venus fly trap that can disguise itself as many different attractive resting spots in the middle of his/her shrubbery like head. The attractive spots trigger the mouth to close on suitable applied pressure.
This card started one turn to the right. It was a dragon like creature but I wasn't so set on it. As the card developed I felt it had a flower feeling. Then it needed to be different than just a flower. Even though there is no one eating at the table I think the plant could be carnivorous and the set up is just a trap for small pixies... or something like that :)
Final bid 3363 credits. This card is going to Maryland.
I didn't feel up to going to church today. There was a potluck and I haven't felt up to eating much lately. I have a feeling I'd be a bit social anxiety today as well. I need to do some laundry. Sorry thinking in txt format lol.
I have a commission that should be finished tonight. I should be able to share it tomorrow. I'm glad to be getting a bit of headway on the commissions. It was actually from working on the commission where I was inspired to do this creature. I need the ink to present itself in a way that is sufficient without the color. I'm worried that people will just see the ink image and not bid on the auctions... not that bids really matter to me, so I should just stop worrying about it lol. I made thicker bolder lines in this creature. Ash thinks it looks like a dragon. I thought some sort of crustacean insect like thing.
When searching for a creature use the specific name or number only for best results.
