Teeny Tiny Transfers

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a very happy and fun Halloween weekend! I am still recovering from last nights Halloween fun, and will be dressing up again tonight! Here is a little taste of last nights fun:

I made a very easy and cheap Betty Rubble costume! I haven’t dressed up in ages, so its been lots of fun! Anyways..on to the art portion of this post. I’m still working with image transfers of course! Yesterday I took a much needed break from my greeting cards, and spent some time sketching, and then making these tiny little transfers for a tiny set of frames I found at the thrift store.

C’est tout! Hope you are spending your weekend carving pumpkins, eating candy, and spooking others! Happy Halloween!

  1. Your art is just the best, it’s fun for me to see how what you draw reflects back who you are, like the Betty Rubble here. That’s a cool relationship to observe. Thanks so much for sharing it with this stranger. I still want to “commission” you to draw something for me. Is that terms still used? I don’t know. I want to be appropriate;). Maybe something for my blog? I know I said I wanted a rabbit, and i still do want a rabbit. But I don’t want to be too constraining. I’m also moving intot a new office space this weekend and something new in there would be cool. I work a lot of with teenages (as a therapist) and a lot of them are very sensative and touched by art. I want to inspire them beyong the clinical language. They are living in a realm between childhood and adulthood, so the work I put around is somewhat alive and vibrant, as they are, but I also like it to have something unspeakable in it, ya know. Well, I’ve never really tried to describe why I choose what I choose, so that may sound odd. Most of the art I have up and around comes from thrift stores, where I find original pieces for some reason people had decided to let go of. Anyway, I do love to see your work, and hope to one day have an original piece to put up in my office (or on my blog), or in my home.

    • Thanks Patrice! Your message really got me thinking about why I do the things I do, and how my artwork really reflects how I live my life. Lately I’ve been just trying to focus on making things, instead of getting caught up in the big question of WHY. I think right now I am sort of hanging in at a jumping point…I don’t see everything clearly yet, but I see progress, and that progress reflects change in my life as well. Its never ceases to amaze me that when you really think about it, art does imitate life. In my life I try not to get caught too caught up in anything. I try to seek beauty in my daily life, and enjoy it as much as I can. I am the kind of person who is very connected to music and colour. I feel the same things influence my work. I make things because I feel I need to make things. That’s why! Where that need comes from, I’m not sure…maybe its just a way for me to let out alot of things that are brewing inside somewhere.

      I think its so interesting that you work with youth! I would love to do a piece for your new office at some point! I think the term commission is still appropriate! I’m sure we can work something out. Maybe I can send an email your way discussing size and we can go from there?
