Herbs and flowers are illustrated in my watercolor painted on clay board. The watercolor is subtle and makes a wonderful compliment to the ink work. The hint of sky is reminiscence of a summer sky with the herbs and flowers painted in the same subtle hues. I love the contrast of the ink and how the flowers pop.

This is a new technique I am using. I use watercolors gouache and line work much like my watercolor illustrations on specially surfaced grounds. The stool is lacquered and waxed to protect the painting. I find that watercolors have wonderful pigments and enjoy the end results.
Hand painted furniture with botanical garden flowers wildflowers and a nature saying is custom painted on this 30 inch bar stool made of oak and hardwoods. The top of the stool is painted with bright cheerful botanical garden flowers, wildflowers and a saying I really like, Nature Smiles With Flowers. The blue sky is dabbled giving the illusion of a summer day.
Use as a table or a stool either way I know you will enjoy.

I have created new nature art jewelry for the women who are drawn to unique distinctive natural necklaces and pins. I have incorporated my watercolor illustrations on paper and slivers of wood, wire and hemp cord. This is an original watercolor of a feather in muted natural colors.
Feather nature art watercolor wood pendant necklace is a hand painted illustration on watercolor paper, glued onto a sliver of natural wood sealed with lacquer and handcrafted with a copper wire swirly hook. A natural hemp cord is fashioned into a 22 inch length with a wood seed on one end that will slip through a loop. This is my original artwork and a one of a kind piece of nature jewelry.
Looking for something fun to wear that will make people stop and ask where did you find that it is so cute? I see a person who is a bit artsy, eclectic and loves the outdoors wearing this. A women who wants to make her own statement.
Necklace measures: 22 inch long
Pendant measures: 2.5 x 1.5 inch and is 1/8 inch thick.
Though the necklace is sealed with lacquer do not get it wet.
The pendant and necklace is completely made by hand and this is original not printed art work.
This is one of my new watercolor illustrations I have been at work on called Bee Balm. Someone asked if I would do something illustrating garden flowers but she did not want it on a box or what not. She was thrilled with the illustration and received some nice compliments. This got my brain thinking. I am trying to please so many with so much in my life maybe I need to remove some of the excess. Much like the saying goes it is time to throw the dirty wash water out.
Maybe it is the day Dec. 21 which for me is a wonderful day and is a day I celebrate. Being of Celtic origin I am positive my ancestors did the same. It is the night of Winter Solstice. It is not the ending of the world but the beginning of a new life. It is when we can gestate what it is we expect from our selves and of others. We can take stock of what is needed to allow our lives to be more and complete. I believe in a Creator but I can also say it is probably not in the way religions dictate manipulate and exploit God. I have a close working relationship with the Spirit. I know within me is a power to overcome anything, it is in you too. We just have to sometimes step ever so slightly to the side and allow just a ray of light to shine in. What was confusion becomes clarity.
I just finished baking some cookies ( I love to bake) and made myself a cup of tea. As I nibbled my cookie and sipped my tea I thought how content I was realizing how present I had become. Was it age or was it just becoming who I see myself being. I think it is a bit of both.
When I sat down to work on the watercolor the other day it was 12:42 in the afternoon and when I stopped working it was darkening outside and the clock read 5:02. Where did the hours go? I was working with Spirit in what I call Creative Space and it is much like meditation for those who practice. What is it in your life that hours seem to disappear and time is non-existent? Think about the real you inside beyond the chatter of the mind. Can you see you? Is what you are doing even close to what you imagine your life? Today I see I am the magician, the high priestess and the page of cups (a little Tarot reference) entwined in a delightful whimsical dance and it is me who is stopping me from creating my life. The real trick is believing it and using the power within. It means allowing life to flow and fear to live elsewhere. It means being true to your self and all of it, even the parts people do not understand. It means having the insight and courage to follow your path and your life because you must.
So tonight as the sun goes down and the world around me darkens I will sit in the darkness and see with clarity where it is I must go. I love company. When I am finished with being I will light the candles and embrace my life for I am the power and light of love.
