My apologies for not having shared with you in a few months. I started school full time and it seems that class is consuming me whole most days. So without further ado, here is what I've been up to...
In April I donated and dedicated a piece to the Keith Haring tribute show, ART SALVO. All of the proceeds go to the aids foundation. This painting of 'Andy Mouse' was set to be auctioned to the highest bid but they never claimed their prize. If you would be interested in buying art for a good cause it is still available just name your price!
...As for the other pieces I've posted...
The fox cameos are hand painted felt as well as the frames and can be custom made to order. I made a multitude of these for the Crafty Con and they sold like pizza at last call!
The portrait is of Wright Brother, Orville. I originally painted him for the annual Sideshow 8 held each year by the circus art collective. It is 5"x7" and I later decided against showing it for personal reasons.
Finally, I will close with this painting of the woman which is entitled, Operation:Killer! It is my largest piece to date and is roughly 2'x4' give or take. It has been my spring feature for both shows at Clash Art Gallery as well as the 2013 Sideshow 8 show at the Dayton Yellow cab. If you have any art inquiries please contact me via email or find me on Facebook @Crystal Leisure Art ...Thank you and enjoy!

It is on that note that I will introduce my 2nd place painting, the abdominal snowman! Enjoy!

Luckily, Adam and Lexie were home and I was able to to use my sisters triple A! I was only an hour late to work and my car was rather toasty when I did get in! All of this aside, I refuse to let anything ( frost bite included!) ruin my fantastic first Friday!
I am so excited to see everyone tonight at Clash Consignments on 5th! I hope everyone is planning on making an appearance! I'm especially eager to present my new painting entitled, " the Abdominal Snowman!" I would recommend parking behind Ned Peppers in the BIG parking lot. Avoid the parking lot directly next to it between ned peppers and the Anex so as to avoid getting towed like I've had happen before! For more information visit, www.facebook.com/clashconsignments
See you tonight!

It's so dark in my house. I don't know if this photo does it justice! Ha.
I loved this book as a kid so I thought for my Grassroots Christmas I'd gift it to my nephew. I felt kind of cheap about only giving him a hand-me-down book so I made him a Dracula doll like the one Robert carries around in the story. Now he can pretend he's sneaking around Frankenstein's basement too!
Never underestimate the wonders of felt. The head is cotton fabric that I hand-painted with acrylic. I used polyfill for his body and wire for his limbs.
I had such a great time making him! Definitely anticipate some of his friends making their felt debuts soon! I'm thinking Frankenstein's bride...
