I have been holding out on you ...
Two months ago I began the process of brainstorming and developing a line of Christmas ornaments! The Artists' Gallery where I am a member encourages all the member artists to have ornaments for sale at the gallery starting in November. I had never thought of doing something like this, but the creative juices were instantly flowing at the idea. With any experimentation process there were some failures, and heartbreaking mistakes. I am thankful for all the bumps in the road, without those bumps I don't know if I would have come to the final result I have.
This new line of ornaments are all hand illustrated (yes, you heard that correctly, they are ALL ORIGINAL illustrations) on aspen tree disks. The tree disks have been baked to prevent shrinking, but please understand that this is a natural material, so some aging may occur. They are all illustrated with high quality, archival ink and detailed with a touch of prismacolor colored pencils. I plan to keep these available all year, but the selection will be much larger during the holiday season, so if you see one you like, please don't wait!
Yes, like I said, I was holding out on announcing these .. I could not bring myself to start talking about Christmas BEFORE HALLOWEEN!! Yikes. I am still struggling with it before Thanksgiving, but I can't hold out any longer. It is time to reveal my new line of ornaments!!
