"Silver Droplets" Earrings

 Hand Forged Sterling Silver Earrings. Took time over the links soldering each one and filing, polishing. No melting or fusing together  so that was good;) Idea to have these 18ct and Oxidized (Blackened) Silver.

'A Knife and a Fork and a Bottle and a Cork" Children's book finally here:)




Titled "A Knife and a Fork and a Bottle and a Cork."

This Children's Book written by Howard Schrager..Illustrations by Sarah Madsen.

Howard has written an educational children's book using Riddle Rhymes to let u guess the 50 States.

This is a Trilogy. BTW Book 2 is nearly done ready to go to press (based upon Cities.)

Amazing to get it back in a physical book sense, this for me was an wonderful opportunity to work with Howard and his ideas on these Riddle Rhymes. Took me a while to get an idea of what kind of "style" to develop for these Riddles. (now think I've got it ::)))
Book 2 is called "Chicken in the Car and the Car Can't Go"
 If you'd like to order this first book, let me know Priced $12.95. can be through my paypal account.

Some times u kinda miss the small details like it was originally quoted as "He flew to the moon before the cat landed"  HE??
Darn!!I drawn a cow instead of a bull!
Course I suggested he to be a she. The lovely Author agreed:).....Atlanta

Espresso lady orig pattern copy

Hopeless blogger I know...life .But here a quick update. Eventually after much time a style or interest begins to emerge. I don't have enough time to study portraiture in oil painting ...so instead......I've always liked pattern & design. Love line...so here's is many elements combined. The leaves floating around on the dress came from a watercolor study I did long ...long time ago. The figure itself was a quick life study of a women in a coffee shop ( originally in biro on plain white paper.) The rest is Imagination in Corel Painter and trying out pattern making in photoshop.
