Time for a Little Art

Art comes in all forms and styles ..... and it's FUN!

The other day after school, Carley and I made cupcakes and decorated them with icing and LOTS of sprinkles! I know it was a big temptation for Jeremy (who has been so amazingly dedicated to his healthy eating and exercise weight loss - but we did let him sneak one) :)
Shame on us, huh.

Carley, you are my best little kitchen helper and our cupcakes were totally yummy and beautiful!

I recently got the inkling to try making a watch out of random stuff so I purchased a watch face and got some scrap pieces of leather and thread and some silver brads and put this together. I used a magnetic snap button clasp on the band and it's actually a comfortable watch and well, I kinda like it.
This is a small painting (about 16"x20") is one that I did just for the heck of it in my Art II class at school while demonstrating a few oil painting techniques and color mixing for flesh tones. It's totally not my usual style but it was fun to do something so different.

Jeremy built this awesome shadow box art piece to put our family picture in and I like the way it came out with the iron cross and iron decoration in the picture area.

Ok, one last piece. This is a commissioned painting I just finished of a semi-abstract interpretation of an Australian landscape. It is a 24"x36" stretched canvas acrylic painting.
