Newest Work in Progress and Sucked Into Facebook

Hello Everyone!
It's been a very busy week for me with family and haven't had a lot of time to work on present work in progress, but I posted an update. I tried to get this one done before Easter, but I just didn't have enough time.

"The Promise"
Sucked Into Facebook
Facebook has become such a gigantic global social media site - over 600 million active users. Millions of people are addicted to the social media frenzy of logging in each day, to play games, to seek and chat with friends, to check out groups or fan pages.
If an artist could use Facebook as a tool, to reach out to the global community and share his or her art works, without getting sucked into it's applications, it can become a vital tool in helping artist(s) clients base grow.
1. Use it to communicate with your present client base
2. Use it to increase your client base by creating a fan page
3. Use it for advertising your website/artwork/fanpage with a banner ad.
4. Use it to promote your upcoming workshops, exhibitions, shows and events.
5. Use it to show your fans your current works in progress, latest products and sales

Hope you all have a great weekend!
Much Love!

I have the scrabble tile jewelry kit sitting on my table, begging me to work on it. I just haven't had time. I am hoping to get to it this week. Once I start making these, I will be selling these on my etsy store. I will send an update, when I have those available, in my etsy store.


I was hoping to get this done in time for Easter tomorrow, but so much going on and trying to update site and everything. I don't think I will. The medium is color pencil and watercolor pencil

Finished Artwork, Sketchfest and Updates!

"Bring Me To Life is finally finished. Original and prints and more are up for sale on my site and you can read the testimonial behind this work here

Here is all the sketches I was able to complete at last weeks Sketchfest  Fastest I have ever done an ACEO in color. Not 100% happy with it, had a paper issue, but I think my speed is definitely improving. Tangled Rapunzel sketch sold right away and the sale was donated to the Sketchfest. I will probably do that one in color.

Last fall, I began slowly making some changes to my site, and I have been deleting some artwork from my site and adding new galleries. I just feel the Lord is calling me in a new direction with my art and I want my works to please Him. So I am sorry if anyone is unhappy with the change, but I am excited about these new areas I am directing my art towards. It will be focused more on Inspirational, Emotional, Angels, Christmas, Animals, Florals and Landscapes. I will be phasing out the fantasy section more and more. However, I still have in my mind to finish up the King Arthur series I started years ago. It's just on my backlist of things to do.

After I finish up my ATC for a friend, I will begin my two Easter pieces. I was planning on having an Easter giveaway, but there have been no entries or replies so far. Still might get one before the April 17th deadline. If anyone is interested, in one to two paragraphs, tell me why Easter means so much to you or you can submit a photo or a drawing/painting for your entry.
Email the entry to with the subject line Easter Entry.
I will be picking the winning entry on April 18th. The prize is a print of Faith
